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!

A meme, sure, but still way cool

Statistics come to life when Swedish academic superstar, Hans Rosling, graphically illustrates global development over the last 200 years in a brief (fewer than 5 minutes) video...

Gosh, I love Hans's use and combination of Cartesian coordinates with scatterplotting to offer almost, although not quite, the z-axis I often suggest. Still a gorgeous visual display. Enjoy!

Happy Holidays!

Think you use your iPad and/or iPhone to its fullest capability...?

Well, think again...
