Don’t do stupid things

It’s hard to believe another year is coming to a close, and so much work remains undone…. I stumbled upon a lecture titled “Don’t Do Stupid Things” by Dr Joseph Lstiburek on youtube it is worth the time to listen.

He makes Building Science more interesting, and honestly more interesting than my pitch. I can’t agree with him on every point,  although he is primarily focused on the US/Canada region,  I have witness the same type of mentality every day in Asia.  Finally, I would like to wish a Merry Christmas and a prosperous new year to you.
