I find a lot of interesting articles and learn a lot about interesting people at work. We book public speakers for different companies and organizations and often we get requests for speakers for whom we have no information or knowledge. That is where I come in. In addition to several other computer and design related duties, I also do research, trying to track down these unknown people.
One of those is a guy named Michael Pollan, who I have become quite enamored with since I started researching him. I just read a brilliant article he wrote. I have slowly started eating meat again and this article made me feel like I was making the right choice.
