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

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
topics Jimmy says are on his mind these days: lessons learned from
curating a TEDx, the pros and

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!

Nobody is happy about the current state of our COVID-ravaged education system. With a new school year fast approaching, plans for teaching students still in flux, and political in-fighting driving more fear and confusion about whether or not to re-open campuses, teachers and parents are concerned.
