business news in context, analysis with attitude

As is my custom at this time of year, I'm taking a couple of weeks off…

MNB will be on hiatus for a total of 11 editions, until Wednesday, July 18. (If something major happens, and I have access to my laptop, I'll return.)

I’m spending most of the time in the Pacific Northwest, and I'll be spending it with Mrs. Content Guy - biking, hiking, wine tasting, beer drinking, jogging, reading, attending the Waterfront Blues festival, and enjoying some great food. Not necessarily in that order.

Of course, I’m not off the entire time. I’m just beginning my summer adjunctivity at Portland State University, team-teaching a class with Tom Gillpatrick. Plus, I’m doing a couple of sessions at the always-excellent Organic Produce Summit down in Monterey. And, I’ll be heading to Ithaca, New York, for a couple of days, where I’m doing an e-commerce session at Cornell University’s 2018 Food Executive Program. (If MNB readers happen to be at any of these events, I hope they’ll come by and say hello.) It is sort of what used to be known as a busman’s holiday.

Between now and my return the MNB archives will, of course, be open. And, I may post the occasional note or picture on Facebook or Instagram if the spirit moves me …

Thanks…I hope you'll also get some time this summer to recharge your batteries.

And, as always…

Fins Up!
