It’s Ask Bing time again!

Hi there. I’m in Philadelphia to speak to a group of supply managers. I believe the discipline used to be called “Purchasing” until, like stewardess, waiter and fireman, the job designation got upgraded. Anyhow, I’m sure they’re very nice people and I can’t wait until it’s over. FYI, I’m generally the guy who answers a) to all the questions I offered in yesterday’s quiz. The thing is, on stage I transform into d). So I get myself into gigs and then I’m very nervous for months before and then I do great at them and then I want to do them again.

It’s called neurosis.

At any rate, today we have a number of amusing and thoughtful Ask Bings for your consideration. So go there.

For tomorrow, I’m going to tip my chapeau to my reader, Sukardi, who writes in from somewhere called Terengganu, Malaysia. (See yesterday’s comments). I’m interested in investigating the idea of a Killer Quotient that functions as a workable predictor of business success, aren’t you?
