Great article about how HFT impacts investors/traders and how the IEX came about. Wonderful story-telling.

I just heard from a friend that CNBC and others went ape-shit about this book.

Always good to know what to eat when traveling around the country. Good to see that Katz's Pastrami made the list :)

I always liked being able to work on the whole system/all the systems under my group's umbrella. It gives me the ability to see everything that's needed for our customers and understand the dependencies better. I also like working on non-related projects simultaneously so if one project gets stuck, I can still move forward without being stuck on someone else.

If you want to get known quickly, better to target a niche market and figure out how to delight them.

Never believe someone who claims they'll turn your company around by using leverage. Don't bother to stay at a company that is getting LBO'd to death. Carl Icahn...the kind of investor companies pay to leave them alone. Glad Apple didn't roll over for him.

Now that's cool work! Setting up fake charities and sending modified boxes of Monopoly games to get POWs out of camps.

I'm setting mine to "Extended Circles" for now. If you're not using Circles/Google+, you'll probably want it set to "No one"

I really like this technology pyramid similar to the pyramid of human needs.
