This month really crept up on me fast. Tomorrow I'm headed to Boston then Martha's Vineyard to assist at Betty and Meg's workshop (so excited!!!) and then the following week, I'm headed back to Oahu for a dear friend's wedding. When I say the month crept up on me, it's because I really felt like I had wayyyyyyy more time till either one of these trips was occurring. Yet, here they are, and I'm pretty pumped. My gym routine, however, i...

Suppose you could bring historic figures forward in time? Could they adapt? Ben Franklin certainly! He'd never drive a car but would soon host a talk-show. Adam Smith? He's already up and running the Evonomics site, filled with weekly insights about how we can save creative market enterprise from its age-old enemy, that Smith despised - oligarchy. Monopoly and cheating.

Till Evonomics came along, I was the person discussing Smith the most - how the left misunderstands him and the right has betrayed him. Now I should retire my role, as scores of economists and sages have a place to talk about this vital issue - how we can save our mixed-pragmatic economy and civilization from fanatic over-simplifiers. 

How to prevent feudalism - the error of 99% of societies across 6000 years - from spoiling our creative, flat-open-fair competitive system. How to be practical, creative and compassionate - like Adam Smith.

It seems like all I use Twitter for these days is arguing with antivaxxers. And occasionally flat earthers . . . no, seriously. Unlike "effective homeopathy", they exist. That's not at all why I started tweeting - in fact,...

And so it begins… Resettling the first American ‘Climate Refugees’ The first allocation of federal tax dollars to relocate an entire community – the Isle de Jean Charles in Louisiana.

Sweat Bee on a Sour Grass Flower

Technique: I went out in the yard early in the morning, hoping to catch some Sweat Bees that might be a little lethargic. When I found this one I simply held on to the flower's stem with my left index finger and thumb, and then rested the lens on that same hand to keep the scene steady.

Tech Specs: Canon 80D (F11, 1/250, ISO 400) + a Canon MP-E 65mm macro lens (about 2.5x) + a diffused MT-24EX (both flash heads on the Canon flash mount, E-TTL metering). This is a single, uncropped, frame taken hand held.

Story
Tagline
It is I! Ranko!
Introduction
Without a heart, how am I to feel love? Without love, how am I to feel hate? And without hate, how am I to know the exquisite sensation of mild annoyance?
Bragging rights
I survived several colds and throat inflammations. And angina and a flu. Measles, too. I also fell of my bike a few times. Got a few scars (I hear chicks dig those, and I love chicken). Also, a kidney stone (do not want again 1/10 experience), and heart murmur when I was a child.
Education
  • Life and stuff
    1980 - present
    Learning to walk, and generally use my bodily functions. Practical lessons in getting wiser (or at least less stupid). Finding out about interesting stuff, then seeing something shiny and losing train of thought.

    Technical high school. Electronics and information technology subjects.
