I've cut millions off of deals by eating beans with my hands

Judging by the post-super-bowl reaction, the office linebacker commercial was the biggest hit (hah!). If you haven't seen the view yet, you must check it out:

Here's an e-mail from an anonymous friend:

You should never have shown me that office linebacker video. It is such a fantasy piece for people frustrated with the decline of modern life. When I was flying out here there was the normal thing of people cutting line to get on the plane, or standing right in front of the door, waiting for their row to be called and blocking people who had been called. Or people with way too much baggage trying to force it in an overhead, etc.

I was just wishing so much for the office linebacker.

BLAM! ONLY ONE CARRY ON AND ONE PERSONAL ITEM! DOUG!

BLAM! WE'RE ONLY BOARDING ROWS 25 AND HIGHER! WAYNE!


Was up at IU for three days this week to do a bunch of stuff and give a seminar talk on LAM/MPI on Thursday (which went well). Did lots of SSI coding while I was up there, and drummed up more interesting LAM. Woo hoo!

The mini-llamas (i.e., all the students doing work on LAM) are doing good work -- it's great to see lots of positive progress being made. They've all suffered minor setbacks here and there (e.g., misunderstanding what LAM does what they need to do for their projects), but that's to be expected because LAM is so huge and there's so much to understand. I'm just thrilled that there are now so many people working on LAM, and I can actually see tangible results from their work. Woo hoo!
