a brief note on why you’re all about to be soooo sick of me very soon (assuming you weren’t already)
Like Erik, I’ve been practically invisible around here for the past month or two. (I missed two Bar Fights in a row!) Unlike Erik, I don’t have a mega-cool and talent-revealing singer-songwriter vid to make up for it. I was asked in March to throw my hat in the ring for a pretty unique opportunity to do some actual capital-G Good in the world. Since it was about as far removed from risk management as you can get, making myself into a legitimate candidate required me to spend quite a lot of time boning up on some Byzantine federal and state laws and administrative rules. Ultimately, however, the same Board of Directors that asked me to make myself available decided to go a different and more traditional direction. (This was probably wise on their part.) Now that I am finally coming up for air, I have decided to spend the next month throwing myself into writing, both with my book and here at the League.
So I’ve decided to call my shot, and commit here to posting at least one piece every day from tomorrow until Leaguefest, which is exactly 35 days away. Folks like Russell, Burt, Will and Elias make posting quality stuff on a daily basis seem effortless, but the thought of doing at least one post a day for more than a month seems like a good challenge at a moment in time where a good challenge is needed.
So if you find yourself wondering where I’ve been or why the hell I suddenly won’t shut up, now you know.
