I Love Barbara Talisman!

When I was heading out to the office this morning, I glanced at the 12for12k Twitter stream and saw a response from Danny Brown to a  blog post that had been written by someone called Barbara Talisman. Knowing that there is nothing like a good fight to start the day, I felt compelled to read […]
