When I first encountered the Internet my peers and I thought it was great fun to share our dev setups. We were always optimizing and always looking for new ways to optimize. Not to mention showing off. I lost interest in this practice because I settled into a system that was sufficient for my needs. Also, I didn’t have time! But I’ve recently made a ton of changes to my workflow that some might be interested in, and I happen to have some time as I’m between jobs.

I’ve been wondering what to do with this blog for a while. I haven’t had time to do the technical deep dives I used to do. But I’ve also been reluctant to pivot into different kinds of articles. I’ll write more about that in the future (the summary is that I’ve been writing fiction instead of code in my free time). For now, however, I’ve decided to publish a non-technical shallow dive on something I do not understand very well: stock markets and economics.

But many other things are much different. The hardest change I’ve had to make is the order I present information.

This was not the case with the first edition; I did extensive restructuring and rewriting before I was satisfied with the second.
