Chicago has the worst traffic in the nation. This has been confirmed by the National Transportation Safety Bureau. Los Angeles gets a lot of credit for having bad traffic, as does New York. Still it takes a city like Chicago to have that special mix of bad drivers, crumbling roads, baffling construction projects and insane lane configurations to really bring home the insanity.
October has arrived. There is a chill in the air. The trees look spectacular, but all that it reminds me of is the hours spent raking and bagging leaves that awaits me over the next 6-8 weeks. It is also time to make the annual trip to the LDI Tradeshow and Conference. This year it is in Las Vegas. The town that provides me two of my favorite pastimes: golfing and gambling.
Recently I celebrated 10 years of service at ILC. Where does the time go? I started working for ILC in 1998 and was the second official employee (for those of you paying close attention to the math, yes I did take a 4 year sabbatical along the way). I was drawn to ILC by the opportunity to get in early with a small, motivated company with great potential for growth. It was clear early on that ILC wouldn’t stay small for long.
