All I Need to Know I Learned in the DMV Line

I had a strange revelation the other while standing in line at the DMV. *I should be on vacation, but I needed to get some things done there.* So they give you the option of setting up an appointment at their website. Which was a nice change from having to call and getting a busy signal. The only frustrating part is that the line for the appointments was just as long as the line for walk-ins. OH well...

"Life is a marathon and not a horse race..."

Not everyone running in a marathon worry to beat others, they run to beat their personal time...Time to market is the mantra in business and it is a shame because alot of great ideas exists, but if they let time dictate how it launches, then they miss out on producing the great "thing". Sometimes I feel bad for all these great ideas that fade into the background because it didn't get executed properly. What happens, somebody sneaks up behind you and takes the bigger market share...

Store Catalogs

I was flipping through a Restoration Hardware catalog today. I came to a section of some book ends that were really cute(pg 5 Holiday 2001)...I guess they were the two ends of a suspension bridge. I was pretty surprised when I saw the titles of the books in the photo: Edward Tufte's two famous books, Visual Explanations and The Visual Display of Quantitative Information, a Macromedia Dreamweaver 3 Documentation Manual, and a couple others things such as Naked by Sclaris and Photography from 1839 to today...I thought it was amusing because I'm guessing who ever was involved with that photo shoot must have grabbed this from their personal library since I don't know too many people who would have an interesting set of books except for those in the IA/UX/HCI community.

I know you're thinking, "Gosh she's strange for bringing it up"...but I think you'd be surprised if you saw books in a product catalog as part of a display of which you have some of the books in your own collection.
