Merli on Netflix helps me learn Catalan

Thu, 11 Jan 2018 10:33:53 +0000

I am watching Merli on Netflix. Merli is a TV series in Catalan, a coming of age story. I am a citizen of Spain and have been in Spain on and off for 22 years but until tonight, I had never watched any video content in Catalan. What happened to me during the episodes binge […]

Quality of the 70s with quantity of the 10s

Fri, 24 Nov 2017 11:53:33 +0000

When I was a child we had vinyl records and CDs but no music streaming services. We had Nikon, Canon and Leica cameras and lenses slow chemical photography, no Instagram. When I was a child we had paper books, no Kindle. No Netflix, to see movies you had to go to a movie theater. When […]

Hopeful skeptics

Tue, 25 Apr 2017 13:50:43 +0000

The failure of education is that during 16 years students live in a world in which every problem has an answer. Then they graduate to find out that the world is not a model. That reality is more complex than any one answer. As they become adults and formal education clashes with reality the result […]

A Trump conservative agenda that make sense

Fri, 24 Mar 2017 12:29:16 +0000

What Trump is doing as a conservative pro business candidate: Rehash Obamacare without tackling the reasons why health care is so expensive which mainly are outrageous costs and margins for insurance companies, outrageous costs of drugs in the USA, artificially low amount of physicians, inappropriate meddling of liability lawyers into health care. Attacking China our […]

NYC vs Bay Area vs Miami, Pros and Cons based on my experience in those three cities

But daddy, how are babies made?

Mon, 17 Oct 2016 11:33:37 +0000

“But daddy how are babies made?” Last Friday, during Shabbat, our daughter, Mia, popped the question: “How are babies made?” Nina, my wife, is 24 weeks pregnant, and Mia, who is only 5, really wanted to know how babies were made. You would think that question is hard to answer to such young a child. […]

The next Trump 

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 20:50:08 +0000

As depressing as Trump counter factual populism is, there is something even more worrying: the conditions that made Trump happen are not going away. These are elite education and a deteriorating job market. As Trump says he loves the uneducated. And by tying lower education to residence and higher education to income, our society can’t […]

The world as seen from San Francisco 

Thu, 08 Sep 2016 02:40:24 +0000

Last night I had dinner in San Francisco with an illustrious group of people. Some of them would arguably be perceived as the smartest people around. Yet their worldview was very biased by their life in Silicon Valley.  Examples: A lot of the conversation on inequality centered around how zoning laws are pricing a new […]

Leo and I find the future

Wed, 18 May 2016 02:34:37 +0000

Today Leo (9) and I were on Messenger, using video, he in Madrid and me in Miami. We were having a long conversation as he walked around Madrid doing different things and I was doing my work. So we were virtually together for quite a while, happy the other person was there, sometimes silently. At […]

My elevator is way too dumb

Fri, 25 Mar 2016 22:00:12 +0000

My elevator talks to me. But doesn’t listen. It says  “8th floor” when we get there. But I can’t just say “8th floor” to go up, I have to press a button. And my elevator doesn’t recognize me, nor my voice. So anyone else who is not authorized can go to the 8th floor. I […]
