Passive, Active and Non-Passive

I was reading how Alphabet made an announcement to acquire FitBit today. In reading the VP’s blogpost on what they think would be a great union between the two companies (I for one am excited to see where FitBit can be even more useful with Google’s platforms), triggered by the words being active and that…

All Together But Not Quite

A few things I’ve learned through the near half-decade of reading on great investing minds like Warren Buffett and Charlie Munger but also the ecosystem of commentary on the entrepreneurship business. These are random thoughts and the mostly unreality but who know they likely are. After all it’s all a fractal. Doing One Thing Well…

The Many Forms Sickness Takes

I’m currently writing this pool-side on a cruise boat off the coast of Nova Scotia. I’ve never felt farther from home.
