14th March 2010: Following Your Hunches

Gardening, housecleaning, writing, playing with our border collie/blue heeler dog Monkey.

I last ten minutes into John McTiernan’s film The Hunt for Red October (1990), before falling asleep. Alec Baldwin’s portrayal of analyst Jack Ryan is cited in management literature as a case study in following your hunches. Author Tom Clancy claims to have used open source intelligence sources for his 1984 novel.
