What a crazy week — and the market is the least of it!
We moved from our old space on Park Avenue & 49th (across from
the Waldorf) to larger quarters a few blocks over on 5th Avenue. I have been switching back and forth between Starbux and Bryant Park for internet access (and posting less because I have been out of the office more than in). The
furniture is in, the phones are hooked up, and tomorrow, rumor has it
Verizon will light us up with a big fat pipe, connecting us to that
series of tubes.
But what’s been really odd is that a dozen seperate projects I have been working on for a few years now — some big, some small, all eclectic — have practically all-at-once, simultaneously, lurched towards fruition.
A major media project
I may join a new BoD
A fun little web project (its potentially very, very funny)
A significant quant application (this is a very powerful tool)
A brand new video venture
Two fascinating blog related advertising concepts
An expansion of an earlier book blogging idea
A new private equity fund
And that was just this week!
We will discuss more about these in the coming weeks; Just about all of them have a market/stock/economic component to them. I’ll keep you up to speed with these as they develop.
I expect/hope that at least 3 of these 7 close before Halloween. . .
After an exhausting 3 day road trip away, the first thing I like do on my first night back is kick back and relax.
Depending on the time of year, that could mean any number of things. Could be a cigar, a walk by the beach, or a glass of port.
Tonite, it meant pouring a glass of Shiraz, firing up the TiVo, and watching Curb Your Enthusiasm. Absolutely laugh out loud hysterical — and that was before I drank the wine. You can really recognize LD’s stylistic fingerprints all over Seinfeld in the plot of this Curb.
I’ve seen them all, but I may have to go grab a few box sets of this; it will make for good airplane viewing . . .
Too, too funny . . .
