I was rather struck by this post about SAGO. Hang on a moment - do try and work out what it is before following the link!
By accident I also read Clarification which I posted pretty much a year ago, on 14th January 2011. I think I have written something along similar lines more recently - Different Offices. Having re-read the first of these posts, I realise that I wasn't being as original as I thought when writing the second!
In their own ways, both posts relate to the theme of Ben Trovato's post.
