Making The Jump to Twitterspace


Dear friends, family, and followers of Kaoboy Musings:


It's been almost 6 months since my last missive using this medium as I've come to realize that the Twitter platform is much better suited to my objectives: 1) to stimulate discussion, 2) to educate, 3) to learn, 4) to interact with smart folks with similar interests. Those were the 4 objectives I had in mind when I set up this site a little over a year ago:

For those of you who know me well, I tend to go deep when I get interested in something, so learning WordPress/CSS and setting up the site was fun.  However, after writing for about 6 months, I realized that I was missing the primary psychic gratification of being able to interact with you all in a community-based setting and that I was wasting a lot of time trying to recreate the wheel when such a platform already existed. Kinda reminds me of when I tried to set up an automated observatory dome on my hillside because of a casual interest in stargazing/astronomy -- before long, the process of setting up the infrastructure pretty much consumed all the time and joy from the underlying impetus for the project. Just like how my objective was to simply enjoy astronomy, my objective here is to have an interactive platform/conduit with smart folks like you.

The bottom-line here is that I've greatly enjoyed the one-on-one interactions from writing these musings and miss those interactions; therefore, after several months of experimenting on Twitter, I'm deciding to move all of my future musings to this platform and invite you to join the Kaoboy Musings forum on Twitter: @UrbanKaoboy. I will leave my existing content and past posts intact on this site for now.

I look forward to reconnecting with many of you and hopefully interacting more frequently!

Kaoboy Musings is a private distribution list/blog that I created to encourage dialogue regarding the economy & markets, geopolitics, investment ideas, and life in general. I have a passion for the markets and investing, and even though I no longer accept investor capital, I try to keep current on global events and opportunities and remain active in the markets.  I’ve always found that writing my ideas down, sharing them with smart people, and encouraging two-way discourse and devil’s advocacy is often the best way to validate or invalidate a thesis and stay mentally flexible.
