George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), Man and Superman (1903) "Maxims for Revolutionists"
You see things; and you say, 'Why?' But I dream things that never were; and I say, "Why not?"
George Bernard Shaw (1856 - 1950), "Back to Methuselah" (1921), part 1, act 1
Don't let fear convince you that you're too weak to have courage. Fear is the opportunity for courage, not the proof of cowardice.
McCain, John (2004, September). In Search of Courage: Finding the Courage Within You. FastCompany, 51-56.
In the search for character and commitment, we must rid ourselves of our inherited, even cherished biases and prejudices. Character, ability and intelligence are not concentrated in one sex over the other, nor in persons with certain accents or in certain races or in persons holding degrees from some universities over others. When we indulge ourselves in such irrational prejudices, we damage ourselves most of all and ultimately assure ourselves of failure in competition with those more open and less biased.
J. Irwin Miller, Chairman of the Board (1951-1977), Cummins Inc. From 1983 letter about diversity at the company.

Blog traffic: Length of visitor stays
My morning RSS reading includes several keyword searches through PubSub's searching facilities. One of my searches brings me new posts that use "blog research" in their text. This morning I caught a dilly from Blog Business World. Check out Blog traffic: Length of visitor stays.
Blog visitor traffic is composed of several components.
Along with numbers of visitors, their entry page to the blog, and whether the blog was accessed from a search engine or an external link, is the matter of how long a visitor stays at the blog.
Research conducted by my good friend Darren Rowse of the must read Pro Blogger has determined that the average visitor remains at a blog for all of 96 seconds.
That's an entire minute and a half.
That's not very long.
It's an interesting article with some very useful numbers. I've already added the sources to my Reference Manager database.
