Alstry's Poker Table
After blogging here of a bit over a year and developing cyber perspectives on a few of you, I started thinking who would Alstry want to spend an evening playing poker discussing the world's political and economic issues bantering back and forth as the chip stacks ebb and flow amongst the players.
What qualities about the person would make the evening interesting and entertaining???
First, the individual would have to be able to think on his own and not be easily swayed by public opinion.
Second, being an innovator would be an attractive trait and a strong ability think on their feet would round the person off.
Third, taking one's self too seriously would be a buzz recker, as a result, no tattle tales, whiners, or too tightly wound need be present....as what is stated at the poker table....stays at the poker table.
Fourth, a Black Swan perspective might be fun so as simply not play the game as presented but come up with unexpected actions that can be game changers and make the evening exciting.
Fifth, a community perspective, playing the game so it is fun for all at the table and not just a self centered night for collecting chips....but not forgetting that in the end, the game is all about collecting chips, but the evening is not just about the game.
If any of you have some additional traits.....I would love to hear them.... furthering a very fun night at the poker table.....but maybe not such a fun morning after....but the memories would last forever.
