Friday Fun -- Just finished the DVD set for Babylon 5, Season 3 last night. Eight years later, it's still some of the best television ever, including my favorite quote from the series...
"You know, I used to think it was awful that life was so unfair. Then I thought, wouldn't it be much worse if life were fair, and all the terrible things that happen to us come because we actually deserve them? So, now I take great comfort in the general hostility and unfairness of the universe." - J. Michael Straczynski, via his Babylon 5 character, Marcus Cole
(More memorable quotes here, and suggestions for watching the DVD set here on my non-business blog.)
Somehow, I get the sense that Marcus' mindset could serve a project manager well.
(By the way, 10 bonus points to the first person who writes a comment with the quickest connection between the Babylon 5 series and the Theory of Constraints. You don't even have to go through Kevin Bacon.)
