We're happy to welcome back Jimmy
Guterman as a Boing Boing guestblogger. He's a senior editor at Harvard Business Review; he's written plenty
of books and produced lots of records, too.
had him here before; you can see his earlier posts here

physics behind flying sharks who can destroy airplanes.
This time we hope he'll blog more about his day job. Some of the other

their firms after defunct rock bands, the mysteries of Scott Prior's
paintings, and a secret about the great bluesman Robert Johnson.
Welcome aboard again, Jimmy!
