The Wall Street Journal asked my opinion on a few investment issues. I was happy to oblige.

On Warren Buffett's Investment Strategy

Sorry about my lack of blogging this past week. The startup I'm working on is busily getting the beta ready to share with those of you who were nice enough to volunteer for an early peek at it. More on that later.

You're awesome. That's all I have to say.

Warren Buffet's investment strategy is very simple: He's following Scott's advice on actively managed mutual funds. Except he is the manager.

Colbert IS Dogbert! Made this realization last night watching his interview with Clinton.

I think a lot of online journalism just revolves around pissing off the greatest number off people possible. It helps spread the article when others comment on it, and it's always easier to attract criticism than praise. This drives page hits, which helps advertising. Half of what I read I just roll my eyes at, often feeling compelled to comment, then realizing that they got me again.

Obviously, something's wrong with the software of the "expert" picking, moist robots at the WSJ.

I laughed and cackled uncontrollably, funny stuff.
Now if you'll excuse me, I need to trim my eyebrows.

Take financial advice from a cartoonist? No way. Scott Adams told me not to.

Define 'expert'.

You're famous, do a good job poking fun at management and business, have a number of controversial opinions (and do a decent job of making them at least SEEM rational) and supposed opinions (ie, things some folks here and there THINK you believe) and are a former member of Mensa.

Apparently thats enough for the WSJ to call you an expert and publish your opinions.

Actually, Buffett made most of his money through opportunities and information that were available to the average person. He stresses often that most of what he does is read annual reports, and most of his ideas come from there.

Admittedly you are not an expert (though since you have multiple successful businesses you kinda are however that could be sheer dumb luck) so here's advice from a definite one. http://cdixon.org/2009/08/22/why-you-shouldnt-keep-your-startup-idea-secret/

I have a *hunch* you'll find this useful ;p

P.S. Is part of your marketing strategy to 'keep people wanting more' so they get super interested in your idea without actually telling them what it is? If I'm part of your target group, you're !$%*!$%* up. I keep coming back here regardless of your annoying behavior.
