Commander Report
01/27/2014
Ashley Dale

I find myself in an interesting position as crew commander, with my main role being to keep everyone as equally unhappy as possible. We're not just talking about balancing things within the crew itself, but between the crew and mission support, and between the crew, mission support, and the press. Time always seems be the immovable constraint. 

This is very much a learning-on-the-job process for me. Keeping the vision of what this is all about 
at the forefront of my mind is what I try to do. Everyone wants their pet-projects, their protocols, 
and perfect shot done, but we only have so many person-hours to work with. Whilst avoiding upsetting any person in particular too much, I am trying to optimize the distribution of all of our efforts to working towards that vision as effectively as possible. This is my strategy. Easier said than done, of course. Normally I am not one to shy from upsetting people when I see it necessary, but given the situation I find myself in, I have felt it necessary to change my game-plan for this all to work.
