Today I was on-site working with a customer, which I always enjoy. For part of the day, we engaged in an analytical pow-wow -- a free exchange of analytical thoughts, ideas, and methods. The session was great fun, but also highly effective. We all learned from each other, and after an hour or two, we had some cool new analytical techniques we wanted to try out. These pow-wows are always interesting and never fail to be productive. Definitely something to keep in mind for planning purposes.
