There must be a reason for my jumping with joy whenever I read in a blog (or in a post on NV or in a personal e mail) that at least a few of my fellow participants haven't yet started pre reading...Oh hang on a minute ! I know what it is-I HAVEN'T STARTED IT MYSELF ! But at least I won't be alone when I arrive in France
Fellow blogger Res I(p)sa wrote about Tony Blair's exit. It really was a poignant moment. Iraq did the poor sod in (He did have his good points though). Credit must, however , be given to Gordon Brown for sheer dogged determination , will to succeed and relentless pursuit of his goal. Whether or not he can best his predecessor remains to be seen. But as future leaders I think we can all take a leaf or two from his book. I am probably coming out as a huge Brown fan but I must say that I am just a curious observer and will reserve judgement on Brown until later.
An interesting fact came up during my search for a pair of wheels. INSEAD may be the best B school in France ( Shut up HEC! It is.) but its students are still persona non grata for one of the giants of French industry--Renault. It seems we are blacklisted by Renault and they wouldn't lease vehicles to INSEAD students. Weird indeed!
As the date of arrivalof the new horde of students at INSEAD gets closer Net Vestibule has found a new life of its own. The traffic has increased immensely in the last few days. One good thing about this interface is that no one arrives at school totally unaware of at least some of his/her future classmates. I personally have formed a few relationships on NV that I will strive to strengthen when I meet these people in class.
On that note ( and noting it is 3:30 am in the morning ) , dear readers, I bid you adieu. Fare thee well , dear reader, and pray for my employer's soul ! He knows not what he is doing to me....
