White Board

Early in my career, when I was but a youngster at Northrop Corporation, I worked with a group of high energy, brilliant, and humorous folks. The work environment, like many work environments, was frequently stressful. One tool the “team” used to relieve stress while imparting invaluable tid-bits of erudition, knowledge and insight was the “White Board.” With regularity, someone would grab a marker, and impart a pearl of wisdom on the White Board. Gems such as “I’m about to do a Mach two arm wave” or “I’m dripping with the nectar of knowledge.”

When I decided that my website should be a tool to provide folks with a bit of knowledge (not legal advice, mind you) about matters that may impact their business, I wanted a unique name for where such knowledge might reside. It seemed fitting as a tribute to my former colleagues and friends from the old days to dub such, the “White Board.”
