Okay, maybe not everything. But I always enjoy when an author I like takes a "Lightning Round" type of approach — giving their short take on a number of different topics. Sometimes it'll be a mailbag of reader questions, other times just a list of topics.

SMI used to run a Q&A column in the newsletter each month, which we did away with as we got more interactive on the website with the ability to post questions right at the bottom of every article. This format is a bit like that, except I'm making up both the questions/topics and answers!

Here are the topics on my mind and my hot takes on each.
