I recently quit my job to concentrate on a couple of private ventures and am sharing my thoughts on investment/trade opportunities in the tech sector.

Criticism is highly valuable and always welcome.
carefully investing but more often investigating; have had 6 decades of remembered losses in both public markets and private placements. Still a board member of a nonprofit and still holding shares in companies seeded long ago but not yet having reached their investor exits. Trying to be thoughtful about investments and enjoying the experience. Becoming less current all the time, likely finding me to be a doddering old fuddy duddy for anyone reading what I post here.

"Absolute certainty about the future is for madmen."
"The First Great Fraud is the idea that individuals in wealthy countries can change anything by putting an electric car in their garage, with or without solar panels on the roof. These are vanity purchases, cute ego boosting symbols that make no meaningful contribution to the common good, the environment or the overall health of the planet. Buyers can make themselves feel virtuous, but senseless symbolism can't make a difference on a planetary scale. It's like trying to fight a hurricane with Depends."
This is unfortunately necessary because a small minority of douchebags feel they're entitled to.........please feel free to fill in the blank.
I am an individual investor who cares a great deal about realistically analyzing companies. I generally disagree with the idea that the market is quick to 'price in' events correctly. If the market does react to events, I believe it tends to overreact, creating buying or selling opportunities. This philosophy tends to leave me slightly out of touch with the market, since it ebbs and flows to highs and lows that I find unjustifiable. I enjoy criticism, because it makes me a stronger investor with a clearer view of my goals in investing.
