Road Thoughts - Tools v Technique

While driving up from Champaign to Chicago, I started thinking about using improved tools versus using improved techniques. So, I stopped at a rest area and recorded the first of my road thoughts. During my tour, I have a lot of time to think about things, so I thought it might be good to start recording some of them.

While I was setting up the camera, a truck-driver sauntered up with his two dogs and started talking to him. At first, it was a bit odd, but then I realized that he was probably happy to have a bit of company while his dogs exercised. He told me about how hard it is getting in the trucking industry, which definitely brought home the reality of the current state of our world.

I talked to him for about 25-30 minutes, I think, then we parted ways. He went back to his truck, and I recorded this little video of my thoughts. I hope you enjoy it. If you have any comments, feel free to post below or write your own blog post and link to this one. If you send me an email, I'll update this blog post with links to your blog comments.

(First part of the conversation with Brian Marick will be up tomorrow)
