I didn’t want to cheat on this one (again)…so I recused myself.

Last spring at a “team building event” they used these “Quantagories” as part of a departmental competition. A colleague…who I…um…don’t really get along with that well…really REALLY wanted her little group to beat mine. And I didn’t want them to. Since we were all sitting there with our laptops…I just sorta shared a couple of the websites with my teammates…and we won.

When an objection was raised…we were vindicated as the winners….because we actually used the available technology as a “team” to solve the problem and win the competition. Boy was she ticked.
