Green Room - Week 3 - Day 7

The poll will be open until Sunday night, so you still have time to read and get your votes in


A couple nights ago we were talking about David Dondero and his influence on Conor Oberst/Bright Eyes. If those names mean nothing to you - the conversation was basically how often it's better to be the *second* one to do something. Not the "trailblazer" but the one following in their footsteps.

You get to learn from their example and avoid their missteps. Or in the literal case of trailblazers, you can follow their path and have the benefit of all that brush being out of your way.

In different kinds of racing, there is a similar idea of "drafting", where you ride behind someone else to get them to take the brunt of wind resistance and make it easier on yourself. You then wait until it's closer to the finish line to get a burst of speed and pull out in front.

Who are you drafting off that helped blaze the trail you are on?
