An Apology to My Readers

I know I have not created new posts in the past several months.  This is no due to my lack of interest in maintaining this blog or a dearth of counter-intuitive thinking about topics of the day.  Other priorities (my day job and community activities) have kept me busy.  Rest assured I have made notes about new content and will begin to enter them as time and energy permits.  The first such post, “A Trinity I Can Believe In,” was added today and I am working on several posts related to the state of politics.  Thank you in advance for your patience.


Who is Dr. ESP?


In 2005, the entrepreneurship program at Miami University became independent of the Marketing Department in DR_ESPthe Farmer School of Business. This new status included identification of entrepreneurship courses with their own three-letter prefix. The obvious choice was ENT. Except that prefix was already used by the Engineering Technology program. So we chose ESP, inspired by former Apple executive Guy Kawasaki who wrote in The Art of the Start, entrepreneurship is the mindset of individuals who want to alter the future.

As the only Ph.D. in the program at the time, I took on the nickname Dr. ESP including the vanity license plate shown above. It is now also my twitter account.

As the opinions on this site are personal views, I did not want them associated with business and charitable efforts in which I participate. Therefore, I chose to use this alias. Though some find it humorous, it is not intended to diminish the seriousness of the content or opinions contained within.
