EICKnotes for Mar 31, 2014

Notes on stuff that caught my eye today:

Lots of coverage and commentary on Michael Lewis's new book Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt which was featured on 60 Minutes last night.

Some Blogosphere's Take - SL Advisor's - Kid Dynamite - The Big Picture - Reformed Broker

Good Robert Shiller interview in the Wall Street Journal talking about passive vs active investing among other topics. Really good summary and review on Buttonwood Tree

Even those with greater than 25 million in assets have trouble figuring out how to invest and institutions are finding new ways of getting them invested.

Economist covers the only reason why Bitcoin should still have any value and it's as the basis of an global internet payment system, especially for use in micro payments.

Best of the rest:

  • Reporter track's own movements through his electronic metadata (Arstechnica)
  • Tracking and selling our movements through buying up street lights (Quartz)
  • Two interesting insights from military leaders on strategy (Simoleon Sense),(Farnam Street Blog)
