Stool Sampler

Since I'm on the topic of health, I can think of no better time than to to tell this story. I related some of it to Aki, and he inspired me to post it on my blog.

Several weeks ago, I decided to visit my doctor because I was worried that I had some sort of bacteria or parasite in ... more »

Let's Work to Improve Global Health
Mar 28, 2006, 9:00a - Health and Medicine
Here are some things I think we must fund to improve global health care:

1) Poor country disease eradication

Many diseases, such as malaria (which kills 1M/year), don't get the attention or funding that they deserve. Some drugs that would only benefit poorer countries aren't developed because there isn't enough money to be made to be worth the effort. Beyond ... more »

I spend about 3 hours commuting roundtrip to work everyday. As they say, necessity is the mother of invention, so here's my latest: rent-a-carpool.

The premise of this business is simple: drivers rent a companion to drive with so they can drive in the carpool lane. You could imagine charging drivers $0.20 per mile or minute for the companion. Each ... more »

Bill Gates' Monopoly Trial (Clip)
Mar 17, 2006, 12:26p - Videos

"This is Bill Gates before Microsoft was declared an illegal monopoly in 1998. In this video Bill Gates is apparently being grilled by a tough government lawyer. This video was thought to be scrubbed off the Internet after 1998 by Microsoft -- so someone must be an insider to get this."

Book Notes: My Inventions - Autobiography of Tesla
Mar 4, 2006, 12:00p - Book Notes
Last week, Dave piqued my interest about Tesla, so I decided to read his autobiography, which is available online for free. Tesla was an amazing inventor, "at one point creating an earthquake which shook the ground for several miles around his New York laboratory. He also devised a system which anticipated worldwide wireless communications, fax machines, radar, radio- guided ... more »
