Sales pitches come in all sizes and shapes, as do sales people. I am not a sales person, however, I'm not cut out for it, as was clearly demonstrated at the poster session tonight. I held my temper, barely, with an annoying, ignorant little putz who was unbelievably obtuse tonight – I was ready to tell him off in so many words, but I didn't. No one will know what a huge victory that was, except me. I can evangelize something I passionately believe in, but sales – the customer is always right and all that – not a chance.
