TBP Site Update: G+, Search, Mobile

I’ve made a few tweaks, as you may have noticed. If there are any problems, please bring them to my attention.

1. Google Search restored (yeah!)

2. G+ added to share bar at the end of every post.

3. Mobile iPhone version. Note this is user definable, with a toggle (Desktop/Mobile) button at the bottom of site. Or, you can choose your link

Note that if you cannot switch, log out and log back in, the default is desktop.

BTW, that is a cheap off the shelf plugin for iPhones. If anyone has a better suggestion for mobile phones/tablets, I am all ears!

Post WaPo Madness

Apologies if some of your comments have been taking a while to show up. The Washington Post madness has meant we are overrun with spam, trolls and loons. I cranked the filters up to 11 and that means lots of legitimate comments are getting caught. I have been working my way through the backlog, and…Read More

Kudos to Felix and Ryan — the Counterparties site looks great. I don’t know if the world needs another MSM curator — they are competing with NYT’s Dealbook, FT’s Alphaville, and WSJ’s MarketBeat — but it looks like a legitimate competitor in the space. >

Blog Traffic Goes (Short Term) Bullish in August

I am not particularly bullish these days — 50/50 stocks versus cash/bonds — and while we certainly could see a bounce up towards the 1250 level on the SPX, I am not sanguine about the next 2Qs of market performance.
