HGTV.com's editorial director Jim Sexton is clearly a man who strongly believes in being cool on the job, as evidenced by a recent public display. When Sexton learned that more than a million subscribers had signed up for the new "HGTV Ideas" e-mail newsletter, he decided that this benchmark called for something radical. Sexton invited the entire Home & Garden Television staff to watch and cheer him on at the network's Knoxville, Florida headquarters.
