With a PageRank 7 all of you bloggers out there can tell that InstaPundit is a big blog. Glenn Reynolds started this blog the way a lot of people do, just to express his views. It appears as though the views of the UT (University if Tennessee) law professor are very popular. He is very big into technology and individual liberties.
His views definitely lean conservative but he is very active in commenting on politics, religion, war, etc. Many of his posts highlight the good things happening in Iraq helping to balance out the mainstream liberal medias views and opinions. In fact today he has a post showing a Muslim in Iraq restoring the cross to a Christian church that has been there for several years. The Iraqis are quoted as appreciating the help that America has given them. Regardless of your views on the war it is nice to know that some good has come of this whole thing.
Anyways for up to the minute commentary on world events, law, and politics you would be well advised to visit Glenn and his InstaPundit.com blog.
Way Of The Turtle.com
If you have been following the trading game for a while or have read “The Market Wizards” by Jack Schwager you have probably heard of “The Turtles.” Basically Richard Dennis bet his business partner William Eckhardt that you could teach people how to trade a system and they could do pretty much as well as they did. William Eckhardt didn’t think that “anyone” could be a trader. He felt that you needed some special skills to be successful. So they did an experiment by running an ad in the Wall Street Journal and interviewed a few hundred people for positions as traders for their trading firm.
Well Richard Dennis ended up winning the bet. While several of the candidates ended up blowing up (losing all their money) a few did extremely well more then making up for the losses of others. Well these people became known as the turtles. The turtles signed a lot of non-disclosures and so they did not talk to the press except in extremely general ways for years. But the past few years that has changed. Curtis Faith (the most profitable of the turtles) came back to the public eye. He built Trading Blox Software a back-testing system building software, wrote a book, and most recently a blog.
His blog is filled with great trading related entries such as this one on Fundies vs. Technicals, this post on The Four Levels of Competence, and here is one on Thinking. Basically you get to read posts related to trading by a man who has been successful trading hundreds of millions of dollars at a time. In addition to the blog he has his book and while I am not trying to sound like a commercial the book is excellent and worthy of your time if you are into trading. Here is another blog to add to your RSS reader so you don’t miss any posts.
is a new business search engine. While this is a sponsored post I actually like this tool. I did a search for “Baupost Group” In case you haven’t heard about it, it is a hedge fund that last I heard is a closed fund and boom Masterseek has the contact info. It has a ton of good relevant contact info. When you need to find a business go try out Masterseek.
