Why ask why? (Seth Godin)

Seth's Blog typically has short posts, but provocative and interesting messages behind them.  I thought this one was particularly good, and I'll include just a couple of his here (click the link to read 'em all):

  • Why is that our goal?
  • Why is this our policy?
  • Why are we having this meeting?

And I'll add a few more of my own particular to ICPSR:

  • Why do we count downloads?
  • Why is this the way we curate data and documentation?
  • Why do we conduct a disclosure reviews?
  • Why are grant budgets very detailed and specific, but the deliverables are completely flexible?

I think "Why?" is a great question.
