Outcomes Based Retailing

During the lunch break at the EdWatch conference last week, I went over to the nearby monolithic Ikea store to pick up the small glass shelves that were out of stock when my wife bought a cabinet. I had never been to Ikea before. I discovered that shopping there has all the charm of fighting the crowds at the airport over Thanksgiving weekend to buy a newspaper. It makes Super Target seem cozy by comparison. But my favorite part of the European industrial-tech decor was the sign on the door to the employee areas: "Coworkers Only."

The reason that I haven't gotten around to writing about the conference is that I have been fooling around with getting my photos online for you to see. You can gawk at individual photos or queue them up into a slide show. See what real conservatives look like! Enjoy; more blogging to come next week I promise.
