  1. John, the dot density maps are great fun. I checked the areas of good friends in several places in the UK, and found it all fascinating. Thanka and cheers, BT

  2. BTW, John, having spent most of my wokring life in HR in various fed gov’t orgs, my job was usually associated with helping my clients make changes to their orgs, structures, and personnel. I am very comfortable with uncertainty. Cheers, BT

  3. Dan Garner’s Uncertainty offering is very interesting. I forwarded to some friends, as I also subscribe to this Substack.
    Thanks for noting it, John
