Crazy Eyes is BACK!

From the Slope of Hope: I saw a headline on December 24 which put a damper on my Christmas Eve: Ummm – – so why on earth would this bug me? I don’t have a dog in this fight. If Theranos goes bankrupt, it doesn’t hurt or help me one bit. If they become the […]

Fickle Fate as Proved by SNL

From the Slope of Hope: One of my favorite coffee table books is an anniversary retrospective of Saturday Night Live over the decades. In the volume is a picture of all the big-shots around the writer’s table. During each week, they all gather for a table read – – Lorne Michaels, the week’s host, the head writers, […]

What Bitcoin “Deserves”

From the Slope of Hope: I will preface this by saying I don’t have a dog in this fight. Whether Bitcoin plummets to its intrinsic value of $0.00 and makes people look like idiots, or whether it goes to a trillion dollars per Bitcoin, it doesn’t matter to me. But I want to point out […]

Measuring the Mania of Crypto

From the Slope of Hope: It seems everyone is talking about Bitcoin these days. On ZeroHedge, I’d say easily half the articles are crypto-related. And why not? The equity market has become a bore. How much can you say about a market which basically goes up about half a percent day after day until the end of time? I’ve […]

Holding On for Dear Life

From Slope of Hope: Checking the Bitcoin chart has, for me, become kind of like watching a huge auto wreck. Even though I have nothing to do with it, I just can’t stop looking. In the past 24 hours, three milestones have fallen away – – $13,000, then $14,000, and $15,000. Let’s just say $BTC owners have had […]

From Millions to Dead URLS – – 2017 versus 1999

From the Slope of Hope blog: On my crowded bookshelf of history texts is one book called Dot Con, which recounts the build-up to, and the bursting of, the Internet bubble. I hadn’t read this book in many years, but I pulled it from the shelf yesterday to thumb through it, since we seem to be […]

Quixey Makes Sense Now

From the Slope of Hope blog: The main drag here in Palo Alto is University Avenue, which is lined with pricey restaurants and retail. One city to the south of us, Mountain View, has their own main drag, and it’s called Castro Street (not to be confused with the gay mecca in San Francisco, half […]

Is Crypto The Only Truth?

In the nearly thirteen years that I’ve been writing Slope of Hope, perhaps the most ironic post (out of over 20,000) was one I did last January called Bitcoin’s Massive Bullish Base. The reason it’s ironic is because Slope is largely dedicated to seeking out short-selling ideas for stocks, whereas the post was about going long a cryptocurrency. Seven-hundred percent later, It turned […]

How Times Have Changed

From the Slope of Hope: One of my favorite little books is called Hey Skinny! Great Advertisements from the Golden Age of Comic Books, which pretty much describes the contents exactly. It is a hodgepodge of cheesy ads from the mid 1940s to late 1950s for all manner of junk, and it’s eye-opening to see via […]

God is Dead

From the Slope of Hope blog: That’s something I’ve got in common with Private Pyle: he wants to be different. For whatever reason, I’m a contrarian to the core. Indeed, one of the appeals of messing around with personal computers back in 1980 was that practically nobody else was doing it (in case you hadn’t […]

Is the Difference Now Permanent?

From the Slope of Hope: I will start off with a chart that, in a sea of tens of thousands of charts, stood out as shocking: What the chart represents is the percentage drop from whatever the record high was. In other words, it shows the percentage loss a person would have had if they […]
