Turning Problems into Passive Income

COVID-19 Killed My Day Job With the event industry completely shut down for the COVID-19 pandemic, I’ve found myself with a little extra time on my hands lately. I’ve been putting that time to use developing my various passive income projects from the safe social distance of my apartment. One of my projects, Checkered Hat,... Continue Reading →

Building a Better Doorbell

One of my side hustles is managing an apartment building in Seattle. It’s one of those brand new “micro-studios” on Capitol Hill. One of the most common complaints I received in 2019 was that there wasn’t a call box down at the front door. The peephole on the door doesn’t help when your guest is... Continue Reading →

I haven’t always been a big fan of banking. It’s one of those things that the more you dig into it, the creepier it gets. What exactly are these tokens we spend all our time chasing? Where do they come from? Who decides how it’s going to work? I’m no conspiracy theorist but the whole... Continue Reading →

A Bunch of Hot Air?

  I started college in 1995. When I stepped into the computer lab for the first time I discovered a nubile internet and I was ready to absorb as much of it as possible. It’s worth questioning whether it was endless sleepless nights waiting for the 14400 modem to download blocky, blinking websites to my... Continue Reading →
