“I’ve always been intrigued by the way people use the analogy of a train to describe their companies. Massive and powerful, the train moves inexorably down the track, over mountains and across the plains, through dense fog and darkest night.

Driving the train doesn’t set its course. The real job is laying the track.

“We also value good food made by small farms and manufacturers, but we don’t need to tweet about it all the time. We’re okay eating a foraged mushroom even if no one knows about it.” The 22 Most Hipster Foods on the Planet.
