Eliezer,

I don't know if you respond to comments added long after the post, but on re-reading this I remember that I was really curious about why you specifically disclaim being a "fan" of Tim Ferriss. What in particular do you object to about his writing(s) that you want to distance yourself from? I'm curious not because I am a fan per se, but because I happen to keep up with both of your writing and would like to know what points of intersection or disagreement you see. Even a short, point-form response would be much appreciated.

-Joe

Just wondering, why do you keep referring to Einstein's achievements as 'cute'? Unless you've done more in your life, can you really belittle the impressive stuff he did?
Unless, of course, if my hypothesis is true, then you can.
But if, and only if, you really ARE the Internet blogging.
