The middle management Olympics AUG 19 2008
John Kenney goes for the gold in bi-monthly-status-meeting commenting. Even as a young student, Kenney seemed tailor made for this event. As his teacher recalls:
In twenty-five years of teaching, I'd never seen a student with less energy, interest, or charisma. It was almost like he was catatonic. But then, when called upon in class, he was able, at an early age, to take a fresh, cogent thought that a classmate had made moments before and restate it as if it were his own. I knew then that he had the raw skills to become a truly great middle-management-meeting Olympian.
