Google Glass will fail miserablyGoogle glass is doomed to fail because it's simply just not a "cool" product, see below for a particularly funny site: I remember when the very first iPhone came out (I got one right when it came out). I would take that thing to a bar and everyone... 2 years 8 months

Pittsburgh this WeekendI'm going to be in downtown Pittsburgh this weekend (arrive Saturday 27th at 8/9pm and leave on Tuesday early morning). Any Pittsburgh and/or CMU/Pitt monkeys out there want to grab a beer or hang out/party? Ideally, there's some sort of pre-semester/NSO party at one of the campuses (I'm 25, haven'... 4 years 5 months
Energy Equities and Brent DisconnectOk guys, for those of you that didn't listen on my VIX call a month ago, here's another gem for ya. Look at Brent, it's at 104 (forget about WTI, it's useless right now). Meanwhile, energy equities have gone off a cliff (look at XLE and OIH). This is unsustainable. If Brent stays at these levels... 4 years 6 months
Obama Press ConferenceInterested to know your thoughts on Obama's press conference. What do you guys think will happen, both politically and with the markets? I'm very proud of the House Republicans for holding to their beliefs and trying to force substantive cuts and save us from bankruptcy. My guess is they shove... 4 years 6 months

ANT will love thisBackground: I live in a luxury bldg in Philly. Philly is currently trying to pass an updated sidewalk behavior bill, which will be harsher on panhandlers, flash mobs, and other unruly sidewalk behavior. My bldg, has an email list-serv, and I wanted to share an exchange between me and "Earl" on the... 4 years 7 months
Sweat Equity?So how many silver bananas do we have to get before we get some sweat equity in WSO? Using LinkedIn as a comp, even a 0.1% stake should be worth hundreds of thousands. ;) 4 years 8 months
Coal Production Max Imminent?I remember reading about this at various instances before. That being said, I don't know enough about coal to either refute or affirm these claims. The fact that there is even a debate at all is a matter of serious concern. Again, not saying it will, but if coal does peak in the very near future... 4 years 8 months

College only makes sense if you are going there...College only makes sense if you are going there to get a real degree. The problem today is too many people getting bullshit degrees, and "business" degrees are not real degrees at most of the colleges offering them ("business" is the number one major I believe). 2 years 7 months

I think you'd be crazy to start an ecig company at this stage of the game but just fyi that you can start a real business for ~$50K. Obviously we've seen more investment since then but that was to fund growth. There's a ton of OEM in China that you... 2 years 7 months

They don't see them as creating real value in the way Jobs, Gates, and other famous wealthy people did/do. Sadly, research shows that the general public's... 2 years 8 months
