Tom is in San Diego speaking to the Insurance Accounting & Systems Association. IASA's annual conference theme in 2012 is "Achieve Greatness." Obviously, such a theme dovetails perfectly with Tom's 35-year search for and obsession with Excellence. He reports that, as an old sailor, he is delighted to look out his hotel room window and feel comforted by the looming presence of the U.S. Navy's Nimitz Class super carrier USS Carl Vinson/CVN-70, which is home-ported in San Diego.
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.
