In the three months or so since that article hit the web I have been
passing ot out to anyone and everyone who can read. it has spurred a few
fascinating conversation. It was also very helpfull when the yearly ritual
of my mom asking me "just what do you do for a living" came around. I
think this year she understands a bit better..

NS hit serious paydirt with that and the "cables across the world"
article.. He is the maker of great metaphores...or at least the one who
says them in a way lots of people can grasp..
