Anchor.fm

Anchor.fm dropped their 2.0 release on Wednesday. It looks pretty awesome — I feel like it’s going to do wonders for short-form audio/podcasts/stories — similar to what Twitter did for text. Anyway, I’ve always wanted to do a podcast, so I gave it a spin today. Here’s my first attempt…

Stillness (my first song)

OK, taking a leap and posting this here… I’ve always wanted to make a “complete” song, well as complete as I could make it — I am definitely not a singer! Well, I’ve been working on a song for the last few weeks and I think I’ve got it to …

“Fake News” and how we are being played

Campy Creatures

I just backed this amazing looking card game from Keymaster Games, called Campy Creatures. The game is visually appealing for sure, but it also looks super fun to play. What sold me is their assurance it would be family friendly, despite the 14+ age rating on the box. I backed …

Why Trump’s Staff Is Lying

A great analysis by Tyler Cowen on Bloomberg. I could quote multiple paragraphs, but it essentially comes down to these reasons: Most people (read: citizens) won’t fact check. It’s a loyalty test to create a power structure. If your subordinates won’t repeat your lies/beliefs, they can’t be trusted. When they …

Welcome to End On End, micro edition

Last year I moved my blog to Medium after years of WordPress usage. I really like the writing experience and community aspects of Medium. Over the last few months, however, I missed the feeling of just sharing regular old links/photos/etc on a blog. Medium just feels substantial — not a …
