I am well aware at the two-year mark that short, open-ended Posts often draw the most comments. And that looooong ones don't—e.g. three for yesterday's "Book of the Century." Nonetheless, I'll keep doing occasional long Posts. These mini-essays examine things I care deeply about. (Often they help me clarify my own thinking.) While they are long by Blog standards—say 500 words—they are short by Harvard Business Review standards. Doing a 500-word essay on a complex issue certainly helps me clarify my own thinking! (I appreciate your indulgence.)
Before blogging became all the rage, Tom was posting book reviews and Observations (essentially early blog posts) to this site. You can find the archives below.
