Knowledge is humbly interesting.

My grandfather often used this simple and elegant drawing to illustrate the interesting relationship between knowledge and humility. He would draw a small circle on a chalk board and ask you to imagine that the sum total of what you know is represented by the area...

Bitcoin Voting.

Here's my attempt to delve deeper into how Bitcoin voting works without using the words hash or blockchain or even "ledger". I realized after I summarized the Bitcoin voting process in my Bitcoin Cheat Sheet, you might have been imagining something like each voter raising...

Jehova’s Soldiers?

I have a lot of respect for the Jehovah's Witness church. They don't merely warm the pews for an hour on Sunday. Nope, they get out there and share their beliefs in the face of scoffing and rejection. And the loose dogs around the neighborhood. That takes guts! My...

I Understand Women!

Hahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Sorry. That's ridiculous. But, I think I made some real progress today! After mocking some guy trying to explain Bitcoin to his girlfriend the other day, I decided I would demonstrate how it's done.

I consider myself to be an uncertified expert in the field of public restrooms.
