Joel Leonard reports that he has lot to learn while in Amsterdam. He just learned the special markings on the sidewalks dedicated for bike traffic, the hard way.
While taking in the sites of the canals, buildings several hundred years old, modern buildings and watching ducks fish in the canals, a group of bike riders almost mowed Joel down. And he couldn't get out of the way without getting hit by the other lane of traffic that appeared out of nowhere, so he wisely just stayed put and let them move around him.
He said it was kind of wierd to get cussed out in Dutch-- as he had no idea what they said but knew what they meant.
Well, he hopes the collisions he causes at tomorrow's Enterprise Asset Management conference is the crash of new ideas against status quo and outdated business processes. And Leonard hopes not to cause too many international incidents.
