Linky Links

Stuff I found interesting or amusing and thought I'd share.

- Bitcoin mining and resource use. Would be interesting to see the same type of analysis regarding Etherium.

- How non-native pheasants protect American biodiversity 

- VDH: Radical New rules for Post-America. Sadly this isn't wholey satire.

- Jerry West's letter to Chris Snow after Snow's diagnosis of ALS is another exhibit of Jerry West being one of the classiest people in all of sports


  1. I still don't understand what Bitcoin does, despite having a vague idea about economics. Since I don't understand it, I won't be participating. Maybe it is the future of exchange. If so, how will the US Government create money out of thin air?

  2. Bitcoin has nothing to do with the US government or any government. It a decentralized fiat currency - just like the US dollar. That's the attraction.
