Editor's Notes

  1. So, who the hell am I?
  2. Transition: So, in all of that time I’ve had to learn how to keep my pulse on what’s happening in my field. I started out reading maybe 3 blogs; now it’s almost 200. Plus newsletters, magazines, etc. And there are definitely some that are more helpful than others.
  3. OK. In my opinion, though, it’s not enough just to be well-informed about what everybody else is talking about. It’s also important to be informed about the things that people are not talking about. And that’s where research comes in.
