Your argument is invalid. ;-)

Open your Golden Gate

<As one wag has said, if the pilgrims had landed in California instead of Plymouth Rock, the rest of the country would never have been settled.>
If you drive the long stretch of Interstate 5 known as the Westside Freeway, from the foot of the Grapevine through Buttonwillow and on to Los Banos, you'll be cruising along the edge of the ri...

<Martin Ashworth is a Leather Craftsman who uses the skills and techniques of many different leather crafts. 

Every challenge is different, from making saddles, restoring and repairing antique leather goods, to even fixing the leather straps on a German tourist's wooden leg.

This short film from Artisan Media shows the final part of the restoration process of a treasured barrister's briefcase.>

Cuisine Campagne

<Like all the best defiantly provincial American foodstuffs, the history of pork roll is heavy on lore, and since it's closely associated with one of the 13 original colonies, that lore stretches back centuries. The city of Trenton, New Jersey's capital and the spiritual epicenter of modern pork roll-dom, is frequently earmarked as the first place a pork roll prototype appeared, stowed in Continental soldiers' satchels while they dusted up Hessians at the Battle of Trenton in 1776. Zip ahead to the latter half of the 19th century, when Taylor Provisions and Case Pork Roll Company, both Trenton-based food companies, began developing competing techniques en route to becoming the Yankees and Red Sox of pork roll manufacturing.>

Brought to you by The People Who Know Better About Everything

<The People Who Know Better About Everything have been developing a massive mass-transit system for the Denver area for, I don’t know, maybe 30 years, and with a massive construction program with light rail that is supposed to make everything wonderful. So, I investigated using the system.

Well, it’s about a half hour drive from my home to my meeting.

By “efficient, cheap, comfortable, and environmentally friendly” mass transit, the trip is nearly 3 hours: first I’d walk about 2 miles to catch a feeder bus into Boulder, then I’d catch the express bus to Denver, then I’d catch the 16th Street Mall bus to about 4 blocks from my destination and walk the rest of the way.

Oh, and have you heard about the Denver weather recently? We’ve had pouring rain nearly every afternoon for weeks.>

Oh Thank You pencil-necked overlords of planning!

Ashes - Phoenix - Etc.

<“When we ran out of food on Saturday, people waited outside the building until I opened back up three hours later,” he says. “We told people it was going to be an hour wait, and they were putting in orders. Then they waited for two hours, and I was like, What the—”

This week, he prepared for the crowds by investing thousands of dollars in new equipment and more than nine hundred pounds of whole hog. But when he showed up at his restaurant this morning, it was almost completely destroyed. He and his wife had gone home at 1:30 a.m., and a fire had started soon after. According to witnesses, the building was engulfed in flames by 2:20.>

<This handmade black leather bicycle wine rack is perfect for taking wine with you on the go. It easily attaches to most any bike frame with antique brass fasteners, while the hidden clamps hold the bottle securely. Best of all, the olive oil-treated vegetable-tanned leather will only look better as it ages.>

Harald Horntvedt, FTW

<The first explorers to actually make it ashore were Norwegians from the survey vessel Norvegia in 1927. Led by a worthy successor to Kapitan Krech, the equally alliterative Harald Horntvedt, they were also the first to venture onto Bouvet’s central plateau, which rises to about 2,500 feet (780m) above sea level and consists of a pair of glaciers covering the remains of a still-active volcano. Horntvedt took possession of the island in the name of King Haakon VII, renamed it Bouvetøya (which just means “Bouvet Island” in Norwegian), roughly mapped it, and left a small cache of provisions on shore for the benefit of any shipwrecked mariners. >
There is no more forbidding place on earth. Bouvet Island lies in the furthest reaches of the storm-wracked Southern Ocean, far south even of the Roaring Forties. It is a speck of ice in the middle...

The WWII Grandfather Test

<When assessing these banal market-as-mortal-combat statements, I like to use the WWII Grandfather Test, which involves me asking myself what my grandfather would say about it. He was a bomber pilot during WWII and got shot down over Germany, crash-landing a flaming heap of metal on the coastline after probably killing a lot of people with incendiary bombs. Ask your granddad: what do you think about Tradebot’s battle with the ‘the market’?>
 
>> I do not presume to know how you should feel about this. People are routinely worried about harmless things, and routinely completely unworried about incredibly harmful things. What we can say, though, is that to many ordinary people going about day-to-day work involving actual labour of some sort, the concept of a robot trader making 100 trades in the time it takes them to sip a cup of tea makes them feel uneasy. The practice may just seem unnatural, or complex, or out of control, or just weird.

[...]

Now, it’s not like these firms all use the same strategies. Some use statistical analysis and arbitrage of various sorts, while others operate exclusively in “market microstructure” strategies, which seem to involve knowing the intimate electronic guts of the exchange systems and how they can be, um, taken advantage of. One might engage in flash trading, which some argue is a form of legalised front-running. You might bludgeon markets with orders through ”order stuffing″ (what HFT whistle-blower David Laurer calls a financial DDOS attack).

You may layer orders across a market like fairy dust, perhaps trying to incite outbreaks of ”momentum ignition“, which appears to be a form of subtle market manipulation. Some have aggressive trading strategies aimed at proactively following trends and taking opportunities, while others might be more passive, like electronic Aikido-bots using minimal exertion of energy. <<
PART 1 (3500 Words). A 900 million microsecond primer on high-frequency trading. In the time it takes you to read this sentence, a high-frequency trading (HFT) algorithm, connected to a stock exchange via “low latency” trading infrastructure, could make, perhaps, 1000 trades.
