I'm supposed to lend my expert advice tomorrow about sampling methodologies for a customer satisfation survey we're running. Seriously, I just have a few rules of thumb and the rest is just dictated by business needs. Well, maybe I'll be able to help them think rigorously about what their needs are. But they wouldn't let me have that much control of the meeting, they just want me to say, "Um, based on what you said, sure, we can do that, we'll need X randomly selected from each group. Done." Oh good grief: I just realized something that will make this a headache. Namely, the entire philosophy of this survey.
R S Thomas: cool stuff. Very Luddite. Recommended by an ochlophobe, so, I thought, why not? I was not disappointed.
I have to figure out how to live. It feels like everything is a game of Mornington Crescent and I've left my line velocity slide rule at home.
I've got to cool it down. But I'm plowing ahead.
