Musings & Observations from SHARE Orlando 2015 Blog Series – August 13 (Final Day)

By |August 13th, 2015|

Some final observations about SHARE Orlando: SHARE isn’t just our name. It’s what we do. I love the User Experiences sessions.

Musings & Observations from SHARE Orlando 2015 Blog Series – August 11

By |August 11th, 2015|

Bumbershoot is the big music festival in Seattle. For one fixed price you can roam the grounds and take in music from any of half a dozen stages. There are hard choices to be made. Every time you choose to listen at one stage you are also choosing to skip the music available on the other stages. That same principle is true at SHARE as well. Every session you choose to attend means you’re also choosing not to attend the other ten or so sessions occurring at the same time. That makes for some hard choices too.

Buffett, Mustard & Mainframes

By |August 3rd, 2015|

Warren Buffett has out-performed the S&P 500 over the last 50 years by an astonishing 782:1. He has done this through disciplined value investment which, as he puts it, is about buying great companies at a reasonable price—rather than chasing uncertain trends or short-term bargains.
