Culture11 just published my article on the South Seas Bubble. The subject, one of the world's first stock market crashes in 1720 England, is hopefully fascinating enough to compensate for my rookie writing.

Many thanks go to Conor for the opportunity, and for help with editing. I'm pretty excited about writing more, and better.

Oh, and anyone with any great ideas for articles...I'm listening...

celeb sighting

He was eating dinner at the same restaurant I was, but I didn't notice until he walked outside to smoke a cigarette and stood right by the window where I was seated.

I was surprised someone as famous as Philip Seymour Hoffman felt comfortable standing around on a busy street for 5-10 minutes, but nobody bothered him.

We're a well-trained city I guess.
