AV Chili Cookoff Time.
Hot Chili. Cold Booze.
Today was Chili Cookoff Day at Active Voice. Now in it's 12th year, the chili cookoff sparks creativity, and slows e-mail to a slow crawl in the hours before the bash....as rival chili gangs trash-talk and promote their own. Ours was Vino Chili....endorsed by many famous chefs, including the Iron Ones.
Even if we didn't win, we scored a moral victory....by the end of the afternoon, almost every e-mail was in haiku form--even the trash-talking ones. We admit to gaining our inspiration from this Iron Chef Haiku site.
Haiku hurt your brain?
Now you can restore your soul.

It's fun to work at a fun company that encourages employees to do fun things. I think sometimes we forget that.
