A video clip for the long weekend

Did you play imaginary games with yourself, staring out the car window? I do, too. And here's a video suggesting that, well, we all do it.

Jack Kerouac probably wasn't the first, either. What does this have to do with my numbers blog? Well, we all think we're unique. It's one of the arguments I get when I work with staff in programs that are starting to use outcome measures (and sometimes when they've been using them for a while): we're all different. Lumping us all together to count things overlooks our differences. Well, yes. But we have some commonalities too, and it's occasionally helpful to be reminded of that. The Atlantic posted a brief interview with the creator, Ian Bennett, here. Enjoy the long weekend!
