Awesome, Lisa! The word I'm going to use as I develop my values for the expanded Bock's Office (watch for details in 2007) is Audacious. I've loved that word since I read about it in Steve Farber's The Radical Leap. The dictionary says audacious is 1) extremely bold or daring; recklessly brave; fearless: 2) extremely original; without restriction to prior ideas; highly inventive: 3) recklessly bold in defiance of convention, propriety, law, or the like; insolent; brazen: 4) lively; unrestrained; uninhibited. I didn't really have to list all the definitions, but I didn't know where to stop - I like them all!

So bring on the sass - and the audacity! If we're not inviting dialogue, we're not learning anything new!

Jodee: I like audacious a lot. There are several words like that that contain energy. By that I mean they evoke an energetic response just by thinking about them. It might be fun to explore those a bit more...

Let's do a joint post about the energy of words - and do some sort of informal survey to see what people think about the baggage some words carry with them - and the energy others have. I think sometimes we think we know the meanings of words, but we've been using them ineffectively (in my book I talk about dialogue vs. discussion ... and I've got lots more). I'd love to continue this thought!

Jodee - Sure, sounds fun. I am sure that there are very diverse opinions on baggage versus energy.
