I’M HOOKED ON MY GPS. No more messing with maps I can never refold. No more disagreements with my wife about which way to turn. No more MapQuest printouts. I enter my destination in my GPS system, set my options, press go, and I’m off without a worry.

Although valuable for anyone involved in institutional decision making, this kind of GPS would be a particular boon for board members who don’t often travel the academic roadways.
