Ho Nam on Conviction, Balancing Open Mindedness with Skepticism, and Herding Sheep

Ho Nam wrote a very thoughtful blog entitled Herding Sheep that resonated with me. It reminds me of a quote that I saw on a plaque on my grandfather's office wall when I was a kid. It said:

"Protest against the rising tide of conformity"

This is a philosophy that inspired me all throughout my youth. While I have had to learn to conform where appropriate, like by sporting Brooks Brother shirts to board meetings :-P I still have this philosophy in mind. In fact, I inhereted the plaque from my grandfather and it's been the only piece of art hanging in my house for the past 6 months.
