Check out this guy.  A little flakey but interesting.  Given his credentials, I think he just started practicing.  It will be interesting to see what has come of this in 5 years.

Interesting perspective.
I am somewhere in between, I wait and buy and still can be way ahead of the conservative group waiting for a market leader to emerge.

Day 1

4 February 2008

day 1

So today was pretty much hurry up and wait. Up at 545, home at 5pm. We had a different lecture each hour on the hour of the morning tha lasted a half an hour. I think we covered about 2 1/2 to 3 hours of material. But hey, that is OK. I am trying to just sit back and follow the group. I think that is the therapeutic approach and maybe something I need to learn, just sit back and enjoy the ride.

I wasnt in a rush all day, even with all the miscues, or problems I wont go into here. Because after all, hurrying up wont get me home faster. October/November comes when it does. Still 250+ days to go.

I inserted the picture Day 1 from my webcam. Maybe I will do the daily picture like some people do as something to keep me entertained. I wonder how much I will be able to tell from other than when I got a haircut.

The vote is on. Leave a comment if I should or should not take the daily picture. If you don’t know what I am talking about, look below or CLICK HERE
