NaNoWriMo

November 3, 2011

I am participating in NaNoWriMo this month. My book is about my three dogs, which I realize is only slightly better than one saying they will write about their three cats. But bear with me. These are funny girls and I have some funny stories to tell. You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, you’ll buy the hardcover […]

The Case for Polygamy

October 14, 2011

1

In a recent republican debate, Ron Paul was asked his feelings on gay marriage and then whether polygamy would be okay too.

I just watched the Charlie Rose interview of Michael Sandel, a professor at Harvard University and teacher of the most popular undergraduate class there. I highly recommend watching it. I had two transformative experiences watching this video. The first is that there is a role for undergraduate education in this country. I have been very […]

How to prevent corruption: simplify

June 15, 2011

The US Government provides public education because we believe that democracies require an educated populace. Many decentralized notions including democratic governance and free markets require that people have the information they need to make good decisions. I see the obfuscation of information through legalese, hundred-page bills, and, less perniciously, through lazy design as a primary […]

I have been ultra fascinated by the economic breakdown and surrounding government, banking, and foreclosure scandals. My news and documentary consumption is at an all-time peak. I have watched many, many shows on the topic. I have been using these shows to get the knack of money, central banking, and the economy. In the process, […]
