As usual, spent most of the day in front of the computer… which is currently a 55” TV. I basically have 4 screens at once and it works decently.
Stupid me forgot that I washed my bike jerseys yesterday so they were still wet and I couldn’t ride this morning.
Excited for tomorrow!
Surprisingly did a good job of staying off this hellhole today.
Read a friend’s draft for a blog post. Otherwise, again I’m illiterate.
Listened to one of the recent Invest Like the Best episodes. While latently interesting, there’s nothing really actionable from it. Not really into trading stock- I think it’s pretty -EV. Just a completely time and energy sink. And plus, if you really new something, you probably wouldn’t give it away for free.
all this coronavirus discourse gave me the sickness of wasting brain cycles on keeping up with whats going on in the stock market— canzhi is at home right now (@canzhiye) March 9, 2020
Nobody who is any good at investing gives actionable trading advice online. I’ve never found an exception.— Naval (@naval) February 27, 2020
Thinking about doing some covid-19 modeling. I’ll read through the metholodogies of what’s currently out there and see if I have anything to add. If not, I’ll leave it up to Smart People. Just want to once again harp on the point that modeling confirmed cases seems very unwise.
UPDATE: Saw this before bed, and I swear I came to the above opinion independently!
We're have no way of measuring the number of cases. This is a chart showing the number of **detected** cases. Is a rapid increase in detected cases a good thing or bad thing? That's not at all clear. https://t.co/XYoRV97DDK— Nate Silver (@NateSilver538) March 20, 2020
