In software development there is the idea of Rubber Duck Debugging.
I've been working on how to model projects and I have turtles in my model and I guess I could start talking to them to debug the process.
I started with the cubes. then added arrows and pawns on a dungeons and dragons grid. I am off to a data center next week to review the project ideas and I am ready for them to laugh at my turtles and modeling.
You are probably laughing, but the ideas I am coming up with are pretty good. The purple turtle frequently likes the ideas I tell him. :-)
