I have been at this forecasting game for a 13 years. Like most people in an intriguing endeavor; I have continued to further my knowledge and understanding; yet my richest forecasting insights most often occur amid flashes of group curiosity. I find that classroom settings are breeding grounds for a "group think" that challenges the instructor to further simplify his understanding into a lower common denominator that makes his knowledge more accessible to both his students and to himself. To experience the fruits of giving/teaching knowledge is an amazing experience to say the least. I can only hope my insights are shared here and the group setting further expands my current understandings.
