An updated list of useful context to understand my biases and perspective.
This is a living document meant to help be a quick reference for anyone wondering how my background, work history or personal holdings might be influencing my perspective. It is up to date and will remain so.
I have a Bachelor’s degree in Computer Science from Carleton College in Minnesota and a Master’s degree in Game Theoretic Artificial Intelligence from Brown University in Rhode Island. I also have an Executive MBA from the UC Berkeley Haas School of Business.
I worked for just shy of ten years at Google, mostly on the Google Chrome Browser leading a team of Product managers responsible for Security, Privacy, Payments and the Omnibox. I worked for brief windows at Reddit (where I led the Knowledge/ML teams) and at Pinterest (where I led Ads Quality). Since then I have been writing for Something Interesting full time. I do Product and Content consulting for a handful of different companies, including Newness, Neeva and CoinTracker.
My personal crypto portfolio is 100% Bitcoin with no leverage. I strictly use Bitcoin for dollar-cost averaged savings, I don’t try to time the market and I don’t day trade.
I often use other tokens and contracts in small amounts to learn about them. I also own a handful of NFTs but I consider them entertainment objects, not investment assets. I don’t consider them part of my portfolio.
I occasionally make angel investments. I am an investor in Promoted, The Browser Company and a trading fund run by a friend of mine that operates a simple index strategy across the long tail of small-cap altcoins.
