I agree with you Doug.  Mind you it is a slippery old slope I can tell you.

Since leaving academia this January, and joining Cycle I wanted to
point out a couple of issues I've noticed:

- my IQ has dropped 78 points

- my email now defaults to HTML

- (salespitcyitis) aware that any critical discourse with me should
now always be thought of as a sales pitch
   (Joe L. also suffers violently from this haha! *duck*, *run*,
*hide* - always forget he is a black belt hehe!)

- wearing "the business mullet" all the time

- any knowledge of high performance interconnects just simply vanished
*poof* *gone*

- new found obsessive interest in these things they call "skymiles" #
chieftravelingofficer

- things like this happen to me:

- although I do sorta remember the mythical "RC Director" that Jeff
alluded to in his article, but it is such a long, distant and hazy
memory...

- I've starting to actually think this might be a good product idea:

hehe!

Joking aside, keep up the great work guys, you are each and all, an
awesome asset to the community!  More than happy to be clicking the
links!!

Best,
