Math or Eyeballs?

For those not following the recent work here for subscribers, the short version  is that we have been hard at work on building a spreadsheet “Golem” in order to better advise our trades. While we are not releasing our underlying spreadsheet, we have...

Conning the Flock: Useless News

Years back in my Major Market News Director’ing days, I saw lots of market research about what people wanted to know about when the news came on. Some of the thought-leaders at the time included the Associated Press and (Frank N.) Magid and Associates -both of...

Coping: Lazy Man’s Home Automation

When the idea of X.10 home automation came out, I was lukewarm to the idea of using computer technology to make living “lazy” – as in “turn the lights on for me” lazy. When I went through the X.10 commands list, there were obviously some...

EU Shoots Archduke Android in WWWeb

We think Google should kill all Android phones in Europe and tell the EU to piss off.  Details follow… If you are a shareholder in Google, how does it feel to have the Hoodlums of Brussel’s (the “sprouts” of socialism) declare themselves to be...

Coping: America’s “Hot Language Crisis”

Coping: The “Freeboard Follies”

We don’t often talk about prepping as related to “water safety” but a phone call this week not only caused my hair to stand on end, but also spontaneously combust! Some people we know were planning a boat-ride.  It’s summer and while fun, there...

Webolution: The “Media Minefield”

We begin this “summit week” with a few notes about the online digital revolution that’s underway.  What we shorthand as The Webolution. For new readers, there are now two governments in most countries of the world.  A constitutional government (old...

Coping: “Messin’ with Authority”

I have (like I need it) another new hobby. OMG, what now? Turns out on eBay, there are all kinds of now-defunct magazines available on CD and DVDs for a reasonable price.  I think in the last month I’ve picked up $150 worth of such collections.  Great sources of...
