Nifty links found during research:
Forbes on leadership. Fascinating. Do note the bits about hubris!
Two cool links about Bangkok: 24 Hours in Bangkok and, from the Sydney Morning Herald's Traveller section.
The Online Etymology Dictionary on [executive] washrooms... and tasers. It was the taser bit that drew me, although I really was looking up "washroom" right then.
How Stuff Works explains biometrics.
Other links of interest:
Carol Pearson, author of The Hero Within, a favorite nonfiction book of mine, and her website.
A collection of Firefly links sent to me on Twitter.
Related to Worldcon, for Chicon 7 is nigh:
Their writing workshop is taking reservations.
Also, if you need a cheap ride from the airport to the con hotel, the Hyatt, check out Groupon. Groupon's last deal ended two days ago, but you never know.
Yes, I'm all Worldcon-is-coming now, of course. Aren't you? :D
