I haven’t had the mental capacity this week to think of my own topic for a blog post. So here’s a short list of interesting things and articles I found in the past few days.
There’s been a lot of conflicting talk in the news recently about “a strong economy” vs “are we in a financial bubble”. I believe the latter is true, and here’s why. Continue reading “What does a financial bubble look like?”
A friend just asked me where to find more information about Bitcoin and blockchain technology. Here are the links I sent to this person.
I recently had a fun conversation with someone about calories, in food specifically. It’s pretty common to count calories, or at least to acknowledge those numbers that grocery stores now put on the front of packages (instead of hidden on the back). They must be very important, right?

Earlier this week I had my first ride on my slightly upgraded fixie bike. Here’s a brief look at that ride.
