I’m someone who is interested in popular culture, politics and business, and especially in their nexus and interplay. I’ve worked on Wall Street and on Main Street. I’ve studied on the west coast (economics) and the east coast (religion). Based in the San Francisco Bay Area, I’ve spent a lot of time in Silicon Valley and so have technology leanings. This blog is a random assortment of thoughts on things I find interesting. You can reach me, if you wish, via email: thoughtbasket [at] gmail [dot] com.
