So I’ve talked about the problem with just saying that you “want more”. In most contexts, I hear it about money, but there are plenty of other areas where we use this wording. People want “more” time. People want “more” community. I ran the Shamrock Run again this past weekend, and the temptation to say … Continue reading
I wrote about my favorite posts for this year. But what about yours? Just like I did in 2015, 2014, and 2013, I ran a report and came up with the ten most-read posts for this year.
What a year it’s been. This site has now been humming along for over four years now. As I continue to post twice per week, that means that there are over a hundred posts on this site over the past year. Some of them, I’m quite pleased with. For this reason, and to give me … Continue reading
So, maybe it’s starting to happen that not everyone “needs” to work in order for all of our basic needs to be accounted for. If you are given enough money to live, would you still work? A study in 2013 on the effect of basic income on the poor and unemployed in Uganda found that … Continue reading

Well here we are at the end of the year. At a rate of two posts per week, there have been over a hundred posts on this site since this time last year. I’m sure you haven’t read them all. Because of all this, just as I did at the end of 2014 and … Continue reading
It doesn’t necessarily matter what my favorite posts for the year are. I’m more curious what has resonated with you. So without being able to ask each and every one of you, I’ve compiled your top 10 posts from this year as determined by the good-old analytics on my site. And as before, I … Continue reading
Last year, I highlighted my top 10 favorite posts for the year, and with the year closing out I decided to do it again. This gives you a chance to read some things you may have missed, and also to revisit some posts you may have read already. To be fairer to the posts … Continue reading
