Looking back at the $GME GameStop story

Howdy, I watched "Eat the Rich: The GameStop Saga" on Netflix last night. I thought it was entertaining and accurate. I started paying attention to the $GME story about a year after I got into crypto. I wrote a blog post about it on heyheyrenee - Pay attention to the

Almost no one is talking about the problem

Here's a post I wrote in 2020. I'm posting again here, in it's entirety. #### The beginning of the end was early on in dotcom, when newspapers sucked up to the search and ad engines. Newspapers should have put up paywalls. But instead they listened to the mob, who told them,

"The Right to Privacy", Warren and Brandeis

I posted this on heyheyrenee.com on March 14, 2012 #### Published in the Harvard Law Review, December 15th, 1890. This is on zeldab.com, but it deserves its own shout out. If you read this and still think there's no right to privacy, eh, you're mistaken.

Field Notes


This was the 2nd post on my first blog, heyheyrenee, from 8.30.2010. After I sold my first company in 2000 I needed something to do. So I built a treehouse. It was great, I spent a lot of time in it, like the week or so when I

Invest in Education

I wrote this on March 14, 2012. #### Our culture, our children, are falling behind each day. In China, kids march and wear uniforms. Average students take high level math classes at an early age. Our kids need to understand they’ll not only be competing against others in the room

This is one of my first posts I wrote in March 2014 concerning the environment. I've edited the post to note broken links. It's an important piece, why we stopped using pesticides years ago. One of the big reasons why our planet is crumbling is the widespread use of pesticides.

Garrison Keillor Summer Love Tour

This was the first post on heyheyrenee, back on 8.30.2010. The 2nd link is broken, I left it that way intentionally. Garrison was fired from the show he brought to the radio for allegations of sexual misconduct. I think, firing him was bullshit. I had the pleasure and
