I agree, Terry. Dave I liked how you highlighted that personal stats can seem important and yet be unimportant. The key is understanding the context. I have the feeling that the context of your stats belie a wonderful member of the community. Welcome!

Thanks, PC. On a related topic, I've been reading a lot about the value of small data. Sometimes we have a tendency to hammer our decisions with too much data. And in the process we're including things that add static to the decisions. It is sort of like representetive sampling. Representative sampling is great if you are looking at big macro decisions. Sometimes, a business decision doesn't require it. I think we're only starting to crack the surface on how to pick the right data, how to gather it, and how to present it to managers for the right decision. I'll be sure to go down that road. Thanks for the feedback.
