  • Crypto China

    I was reading through Mary Meeker’s massive Internet Trends 2018 deck and was floored by the numbers on China. Side Notes, need to learn Mandarin. The specific slides on internet leadership by market value was the real indicator. Based of 2018 rankings, the top 20 internet companies are either US or China based with (11)…

  • Is the herd coming?

    Is the herd finally coming? We’ve been hearing about this herd of investors for a couple years from Mike Novogratz, this is the idea of institutional investors coming to crypto and then all their retail customers following them. Last week there was significant moves made on the institutional side that I believe are strong signals…

  • Governance

      How many nights have you laid in bed and thought about the importance of Bitcoin governance? Countless, right. It’s not the sexiest thing in the world but it is worthy of thought. Especially when you think about the implications of other more broadly used blockchains in the future. When we start dumping all our…

  • Feedly is getting an upgrade

    One of the first things I install on a new device or bookmark on a new machine is Feedly. It’s my rss/blog reader of choice and was the heir apparent after Google shut down Google Reader back in 2008 or something like that. Feedly has rolled out constant improvements over the past few years and…

  • The New Standard

    I’ve been elbow deep in Crypto Twitter for the past couple weeks and finally picked up a copy of The Bitcoin Standard by Saifedean Ammous. The book covers the history and definition of money, pitfalls of national fiat and central planning, and a strong argument for sound money and why bitcoin is the best money…

  • It’s Electric

      The AK-47 manufacturer,¬†Kalashnikov, is bringing an electric car to market. Did you read that right? Do I need to say it again? Okay…. The AK-47 manufacturer,¬†Kalashnikov, is bringing an electric car to market. Truth is stranger than fiction, and this rad looking hatchback is no exception. What I’m sitting here wondering is what makes…

  • Remember, it’s a journey

    I didn’t read the news enough this week because of life happening, but believe me when I tell you, stuff happened. The biggest news from the blogosphere was leaks from Intel, absolutely ridiculous benchmarks on Threadripper, and crypto bouncing like a dead as f cat. After reading about the new Threadripper, i really want to…

  • Ready for a pet robot?

      I was thinking about how cool it would be to have a little robot that lived on my desk a couple months ago and look what the heck was just announced…. VECTOR! The brains behind Cozmo, Anki, are releasing a 2.0 version in October of the cute robot that could but now is tailored…

  • Censored

      We’ve all known about the Great Firewall of China but this is a first for me. Google is, reportedly, standing up a censored version of it’s core service. I understand the Chinese market is massive and if you’re in tech and not there, then you will probably not be relevant in the next 10…

  • Slowdown Is The Tactic

    Remember how everyone was up in arms about net neutrality? Remember how we were beating our drums about throttling websites violates our unalienable rights granted by our creator? Remember how Google has “Do No Evil” written in their very code? No, wait, they removed that. If this article is true, then I think it’s time…
