A random question from a long-time client, colleague, and mentor of mine led me to the blog of Scott Berkun who is apparently someone right up my alley, professionally speaking. The thing that caught my eye was a blog entry on Independence Day, you know, July 4th…fireworks and sweaty guys manning grills sporting tank tops and stupid Statue of Liberty hats while perpetually grasping a “cold one”. It occurred to me as I read it that I’ve not really stopped and given a lot of thought to the holiday, even in light of the last several years.
