I’ve been a little overwhelmed here lately. I didn’t realize that Khoi Vinh was also speaking. You’ll have to fill me in when I see you next.

Re: the “a lot of paperwork before the project starts” and “lack of focus” and scope creep thing: I’ve found that it’s extremely important to get people to put what they want and need in writing (otherwise known as an RFP). It doesn’t have to be formal or fancy, but the act of writing helps to clarify thought in a way that speaking doesn’t. It’s surprising how difficult this is for some people—even how resistant some people are to it—but it makes all the difference in the world.
