Director’s Greeting: Issue #13


This week’s Drive? You’ll laugh! You’ll cry! It’ll be better than “Cats”! Well, maybe not quite. But I can guarantee at least a chuckle or two (check out Dilbert and Survivalist Singles). And I don’t think it’s possible not to get at least a little misty-eyed when you read this week’s Clyde’s Corner, a moving tale of two cities (New York and New Orleans) and an intensely personal look at how they supported each other through two of our most trying times (9-11 and Katrina). I’ll admit it; I cried. And I’m not the weepy type, but it’s as moving a story as you’ll ever read, so read on.


As for the rest, we’ve got social media survey results, a question about the new ANSI standard, last chance DRI2012 registration discounts, and you’re invited to a free webinar on May 10! And keep those emails and phone calls coming. Your feedback is what drives Drive and I truly appreciate your guidance and direction. Confession – I failed map skills in the fourth grade (That’s because I spent my time flirting with my partner, Sean Workowski , who was far more interesting and way cuter than flat, boring representations of the real world). Anyway, I’m still baffled by maps, but the result is that I know when I need to ask for help to get where I’m going. And I need your help to make sure Drive keeps heading in the right direction. So, send me your feedback, funnies, questions, and concerns and we’ll get there together.
