    Very nice, I watched the whole 53:26. The thing I was most surprised about was probably that Sweden doesn't have operation.

    yeah, that analogy fell flat on its face!

    However, a lot of that advice could definitely be taken into account here on dd.

    I wish I had a little more time to focus on that. I watched the first five minutes and it was interesting and apparently useful-- I learned some new things too. Whenever I have 50 minutes I'll check it out.

    I think the most relevant part to dd is the last 20:00 or so in which he discusses tangents off of conversations, or as he calls them, 'derails'.

    It's all about arguing productively (where an argument really is an argument, and not a fight or flame war) and developing good communication skills. He explains it all very nicely, too.

    Another part of it is also arguing about something worth arguing, and not, as he says, having the argument about tabs or spaces for the rest of eternity.

    Interesting video - I listened to it while I was getting ready for work this morning.

    I think I fall into the category of not being able to seperate the problem from the person - must try harder.
