I recently attended Gartner Group’s Annual Symposium held in Orlando, FL Oct 2011. At the symposium Clayton Christensen gave the best presentation/keynote that I have ever heard in the 12+ years that I have attended. He talked to the IT audience about Disruptive Innovation. This presentation is an hour long, but it is incredibly good and would highly recommend it:
With the recent comments by a prominent Dallas Pastor calling Mormons a cult and non-Christians I received a question from a Clifford Keys, Colonel, US Army (Retired) asking whether Mormons are Christians. I of course responded affirmatively. In response Col. Keys wrote a letter to Dr. Jeffress, the LDS Church, CNN, his email list of hundreds of other retired military personnel, and myself. With his permission I have posted his letter here: Baptist Pastor
“Hello, is this the Sheriff’s Office?”
”Yes, What can I do for you?”
” I’m calling to report ’bout my neighbor Virgil Smith…. He’s hiding marijuana inside his firewood! Don’t quite know how he gets it inside them logs, but he’s hidin’ it there.”
”Thank you very much for the call, sir.”
The next day, the Sheriff’s Deputies descend on Virgil’s house. They search the shed where the firewood is kept. Using axes, they bust open every piece of wood. but find no marijuana. They sneer at Virgil and leave.
Shortly after, the phone rings at Virgil’s house. ”Hey, Virgil, This here’s Floyd…. Did the Sheriff come?”
”Did they chop your firewood for the winter?”
”Happy Birthday, buddy!”
Rednecks know how to git-er-done!!!
