In the early days of MI, as it grew out of the Foolish Workshop, I'd been an avid follower/participant of the MI board. Then, I foolishly left to work on the other side (Salomon Smith Barney) for a time. In the past dozen years, or so, I've only followed the MI board sporadically.

It had appeared that WWN or WWL had fallen out of favor. As an early proponent of "What's Working Now" (or Lately), I'm happy to learn I'm not alone in the "style-chasing" experiment.

I still feel it takes more effort than choosing a screen or screens and just running the "rinse and repeat cycle". I wonder how many Fools do that? I suppose it depends on how involved in the selection process you want to be.

Forever Foolish!
