  1. I reread your original post and can't tell if you have shared the two main points with the potential client: 1) You have already done the research 2) His budget is insufficient If you share both those pieces of information and the client wishes to move forward, that is his/her choice and I would sell him step one. Possibly there is value to the client just having the research done and documented, with no intent to move forward. If your boss does not want you to share that information with the client, you, as an objectivist, should not want to work there. As an aside, I will shar
  2. Hope this is appropriate here, if not feel free to move or delete it. Anyone on this forum ride a motorcycle? I suppose a motorcycle could be called an "other place"! ☺ I ride a Road King Classic. It is my primary mode of transportation. I ride all year (unless there is black ice). I'd be interested in getting together for a ride a beer and some intellectually stimulating conversation.
  3. I don't think this is exactly what you had in mind, but how about recruiting from other forums? I actually found this forum while searching for information on agnosticism. There is an intelligent young person on a libertarian forum with whom I have been discussing agnosticism. He is a huge fan of Rothbard and insists that a negative can be proven, and that since I can't prove flying purple turtles do not exist then by coming to the conclusion that they do not, proves that I have faith. Why not "troll" other forums for candidates, like my "agnostic, young friend"? As regards the moderat

  5. It was college age for me, but I was in the Navy. I read "Atlas Shrugged" and it has changed my life. I had always rejected the idea of a deity, rebelled against what I considered oppressive (though I doubt I knew the word at the time) government, and had a strong sense of self and individual rights. I was energized and relieved to discover that I was not as "alone" as I had thought.
  6. Hello, I enjoy philosophy, but suffer from intransigence, which I fight as best I can. I consider Ayn Rand one of the greatest thinkers of all time and appreciate the way her works have helped me define a philosophy. I live in Washington and enjoy hiking, reading, gardening, motorcycling and animal training. As a long time student of Objectivism, I hope to enjoy this forum as I continue to learn.
