A private investor for 20+ years, I manage private portfolios and write about investing. You can read my market musings on three different sites: 1) The Deipnosophist, dedicated to teaching the market's processes and mechanics; 2) Investment Poetry, a subscription site dedicated to real time investment recommendations; and 3) Seeking Alpha, a combination of the other two sites with a mix of reprints from this site and all-original content. See you here, there, or the other site!

Like maps?

Check how things really looked back in the day with this crafty mash-up of historical maps and Google Earth.

Old maps are scanned, then laid over with current street names / landmark labels, revealing what's changed and what's stayed the same.
