In the Event of My Disappearance, You Know I'm Writing
I've gotten some questions lately to the effect of where are you & what's up with the blog. There are a couple of reasons I've been laying back. One is that I'm very busy right now, writing the investing book and also, in beta, doing the investing. I would rather spend my time that way and I think many of you would rather that I do that as well.
In terms of when, the book will be done when its finished and there are always surprises in these things so it's best not to give an arbitrary deadline. As the date gets closer you'll get some heads-up comments.
Another reason I have not written much lately is that there isn't much I want to say about Buffett or Berkshire. At some point, people have accomplished enough in their career that they should get to rest on their laurels, meaning that it isn't appropriate to comment on every little thing they do and say. If anything important happens, I'll write about it -- probably for Bloomberg -- and post the link here. I have a Bloomberg column coming out on another subject shortly that you'll learn about if you subscribe to my feeds, twitter, etc.
From time to time I read something noteworthy enough to pass along. This is an interesting piece from the Templeton Foundation that has implications for investing as well as life in general: The Hodge Hill Prophecy.
I hope you've enjoyed visiting the blog and I will continue to tune in, but for awhile at least, not as often as in the past couple of years.
Best to you all,
