In constant pursuit of “The New New Thing”

The New New Thing by Michael Lewis

“The New New Thing” by Michael Lewis is a fantastic trip through the history of Silicon Valley, and beyond that it’s the story of Jim Clark.

He starts by stating that “this book is about a search that occurs on the frontiers of economic life.” But it is also about the history of economics and the technological advancement that brings about growth and change, not just for economics and the market but for everyone.

The Road to Clammr Clip 1,000

1000clips

On January 21st, 2016 I posted my first Clammr clip and then I kept going and going, right through to July 4th, 2016, a mere 165 days later when I posted clip 1,000.

What is Clammr? I’ve covered this before, but in short, it’s a way to easily create and share short audio clips. Now it’s commonly used for podcasts, but it can be used in many other ways too.

How did I manage 1,000 clips in 165 days?

Clearing out the clutter of my mind

Clearing out the clutter of my mind

I’m not sure if I’ll do this again, or if so, how often, but I’ve a lot going on in my head and just want to unload some it. Consider this a “take out the trash” post, if you will.

Some of these things will be connected, some will surely not. This just happens to be where I am at right now, so please don’t look any further into connecting these things than necessary. In all likelihood, there is no connection.

Have you heard of Preacher? This is how I came to know Reverend Jesse Custer.

Preacher Comic

Have you read Preacher? I’m not asking because there is a show on AMC based on those comics. I’m not asking because I was on a podcast called “Preacher vs. Preacher: A Comparison Companion.” I’m asking, because it is flat out a great read!

How did I come to find this comic from the 90’s? How did I end up on that podcast? Truthfully, it is all Bill Sweeney’s fault, Bill being a friend and the host and creator of The Wicked Theory Podcast.
