  • "Internet Killed The Radio Store" – Mall Vacancies Hit All Time Record – #
  • Excellent interview with Bill Clinton in Weekend FT. This link should transit the paywall. #

  • On Brownian motion in a coffee cup, or the pointlessness of daily stock market reporting – #
  • Senate hearing on ETFs scheduled for Wed. #
  • Remarkable: 100-year-old marathoner sets world record by completing Toronto race #
  • VC firms hiring HR people as partners. Didn't we do that at the peak of the last bubble? #
  • Just finished it, & it's geekishly great: Mosquito Empires: Ecology and War in the Greater Caribbean, 1620-1914 #
  • "[The] whole damn war business is about nine hundred and ninety-nine parts diarrhea to one part glory." – Walt Whitman #
  • Briefly flipped on CNBC this morning and realized that @herbgreenberg is increasingly looking like Louis Rukeyser's younger brother. #
  • Anyone out there dropped Dropbox in favor of iCloud? I just can't get there. #
  • So, a bunch of quick responses (thanks!) on dropping Dropbox for iCloud, and it's unanimous: iCloud isn't there yet. #
  • iOS vs. Microsoft: Comparing the bottom lines #

  • Canadian real estate bubble expands, with Toronto real estate price gains now touching Vancouver levels – #
  • The most remarkable figure if you want to compare Canada & U.S. real estate prices. #
  • Two things on that real estate chart: 1) Vancouver skews market by 10-15%; & 2) CDN $ conversion makes gap wider. Gap still exists tho. #
  • Improvement in US mortgage delinquencies ends, as prime becomes new subprime – #
  • That real estate chart compares "median" U.S. prices to "average" Canadian prices. Bizarre and likely indefensible choice by BMO/G&M. #
