This is the entire keynote I gave at this conference --- it was one I called 'The Two by Four' talk.
An uncompromising, unrelenting talk designed to get the listener to either take action and start fixing the problem, or storm off in a huff determined to prove I was wrong (and then contact me later to say I was correct)
