Resilient Ways: Imagine a free world …

What the blockchain is AND isn’t … (and Lenny Wilkens’ Basketball Camp)

Resiliently share this:

Some Background: I doubt that I’m the first to write an article on this subject – the misunderstandings and meandering interpretations of WHAT the “blockchain” is … FYI – I should explain a little about myself. I’ve been a professional software developer, engineer, architect and project manager for 14 years (it feels like 15 for some strange reason). I got into computers, seriously into them, kind of late – after 30 years of age. When I was 10 years old I’d asked my parents if I could go to computer camp … this was the year 1980. My dad, in

So many bonds to choose from …

Resiliently share this:

Of course, these bonds are meant in JEST … but really – are these hypothetical financial instruments any “scarier” than the bogus crap the FEDERAL RESERVE does, all the time? – no. Janet Yellen WISHES she had these bonds … especially the “Singularity Bond” … because once the inflation gets too far, well … sawdust bread folks, and other even more horrible crap. (and sawdust bread? – check your sandwich roll at Subway … already there man)

We might have found our PHASE 1 property! (but I don’t want to get too excited)

Resiliently share this:

I don’t want to jinx it … I’m a rational guy, but I have some superstition about “good luck” … I suppose I expect to “have nothing good” in this life – certainly nothing good that lasts. This is the best I’ve felt in a long time, and I feel like my heart has started beating again – and seeing this piece of land, and speaking to its owners was energizing … that’s all I can say about that. (without incurring the wrath of the fates)

My anarchy (continued) …

Resiliently share this:

Several months ago, just after I abandoned the Libertarian Party, I began thinking about my own anarchism – what it meant to me, the decision. Here is a link to that article (as PDF) … I don’t want to reiterate too much of that, but to simply give you an update, of sorts. I have been, since the end of 2016 and until quite recently, in a very dark place regarding the “human condition” and freedom. In many ways, choosing to recognize that I was an anarchist, that I was free – no matter what the state might want to

Last day in Hocking County, this trip …

Resiliently share this:

Jim and I (Dan Sullivan) have surveyed some of the area. This morning we had a decent trek (small hike) through some property off of 664 – 17 acres, currently being used as a laser-tag site. It is likely outside our price-range, but it gave us a sense of what to expect. The second property we looked at, further north-east, was beautiful and not far from what we think we can fund for our first site. 22 acres (roughly), a nice brick house and other features. Plenty of land, quiet road, and beautiful vistas. It might also be too much
