2009 HighlightsIt's time for the Fall 4Q09 quarterly highlights post, which also sums up all of 2009 (if you've been outside recently, then you clearly understand that we are now officially in the 'Holy Crap It's A Cold Winter!' quarter). These posts have been chosen with a particular focus on significant ideas I'd like to see kept alive for discussion and action, and they're mainly targeted at new readers who want to get caught up with a quick overview of the Houston Strategies landscape. I also like to track what I think of as "reference posts" that sum up a particular topic or argument.
Don't forget we offer an email option for the roughly twice/week posts - see the Google Groups subscription signup box in the right sidebar. An RSS feed link (Atom) (or RSS 2.0) is also available. As always, thanks for your readership.
