If only

If I could write just a tenth as well as Malcolm Gladwell does, I would be making a fabulous living exploring all the oddities of human behavior. I could dive from subject to subject and write bestselling books about the ability of humans to make snap decisions, and to judge trends. I could do that because even a tenth of Gladwell is still pretty damned good.

But I'm bringing five percent, max. So I settle for fixing computers and running networks. It's not a bad consolation prize, though. Even at five percent I still write fairly well. I just pretty much have to keep it confined to this boring old blog and the occasional tech publication.

Oh well.
