Just because someone accurately predicted the future does not mean they effected it.
Dear Supermarket Managers:
Learn from Black Tuesday. There was a run on the banks. Here’s how the banks that survived handled it:
- Day one: dole out withdrawals as fast as possible. Passers-by will see there are no long lines and no runs on the bank, therefore they will not add to the panic.
- Day two and on: Make transactions move as slowly as possible. This stretches out the supply of cash on hand for as long as possible.
Granted, there is no supply shortage this time, only a demand surge. But the same economics applies. Here’s how you do it:
Colorado sends mail-in ballots. Typically I vote early. I’m going to change my strategy for the next Super Tuesday.
I spend a lot of time trying to make the digital infrastrucure my family uses safe, secure, and – to the extent possible – convenient for them.
And I feel incredibly unappreciated.
I moved off of Gmail back to my own servers. Why self-host my email again after all these years?
Recently I purchased the domain dpcn.us. Ever since then there has been a torrent of spam calls cascading into my telephone number. (I’ve been receiving a lot of spam emails, too, but those are less disruptive.) You see, the .us TLD doesn’t allow registrants to hide their identities. Perhaps that’s why the domains are so cheap.
So why am I not complaining?
