On Being Effective.
It is far better to do the right thing wrong than to do the wrong thing right. – Russell Ackoff
I put this quote in here partly because it’s one of my favorites, from one of my favorite people . . . but also in part because I wanted to test WordPress’s posting capabilities. Much as what happened with posting a picture (WordPress has these quick post capabilities for several different types of content), I really don’t like how it works. I much prefer the regular posting functionality if for no other reason than you can save a draft; something that isn’t available as far as I can tell with the quick posts.
About Rick Ladd
I retired nearly 13 years ago, though I've continued to work during most of the time since then. I'm hoping to return to work on the RS-25 rocket engine program (formerly the SSME) which will power our return to the moon. Mostly I'm just cruising, making the most of what time I have remaining.
Although my time is nearly up, I still care deeply about the kind of world I'll be leaving to those who follow me and, to that end, I am devoted to seeing the forces of repression and authoritarianism are at least held at bay, if not crushed out of existence.
I write about things that interest me and, as an eclectic soul, my interests run the gamut from science to spirituality, governance to economics, art and engineering. I'm hopeful one day my children will read what I've left behind.
