I'm catching up on my backlogged blog reading and came across an interesting page – 31 days to Building a Better Blog. It's focused toward people who are trying to actually make money at blogging, something I can't quite get my mind around, but in any event, it's got some nice tips for bloggers, worth […]

One of the things that I often do before a meal (at least when I'm being conscious) is think about where the food came from. When I was driving down to Santa Barbara from Berkeley yesterday, I passed fields and fields of food crops, some of which were being picked. At one field, there was […]

As I was in the process of selling my condo, I thought a lot about housing prices, and whether there was a housing bubble. As I learned lately, I sold my condo just as the housing market in my area was softening. Anyway, one of my favorite columnists, Paul Krugman, has an interesting column on […]

I'm sitting at a cafe called Trident. It's on Pearl Street, just a block from the Pearl Street mall. It's been 11 years or so since I was last in Boulder, and it's hard to believe – it feels like it was just a few weeks ago, somehow. It hasn't changed a lot, from what […]
