cooper dot se.

Winter, Spring, Summer, Winter, Spring.

We're all over the map here in Chicago. I wore a sweater to work last week, sat on the warm beach for three hours on Sunday, then froze through a Cubs win tonight at Wrigley. The weather here in Chicago never ceases to amaze me. We'll be back to 70 within 48 hours apparently.

I was reading about the dot-com boom and bust today for some reason. My thoughts: there is never any "new economy". This got me thinking about basic business and economic principles. They don't change and they can't change. They can be manifested in different ways, but even I-of-no-business-classes-ever know that you can't produce nothing and suddenly be worth $97 million.

I think something kind of like this was in the Bible. Something like there is nothing new under the sun. It'll happen again.

I continue to not be able to put this thing down, despite being able to solve it in no more than eight minutes or so.

Ummm....yeah there's a little semi-stream-of-conscious-with-a-few-links-thrown-in for you. Until next time.
