Links and posts largely on what I find interesting or compelled to write about. Expect a lot of fintech, commerce and tech related posts, but I promise there will be hodgepodge of random tidbits as well!

This week we look at the best of 2018, the holiday season retail sales, Hans Morris’ view on fintech investing, Apple’s decision to manufacture iPhones in India, Isaac Asimov’s predictions for 2019 (from 1984…) and more! Enjoy.

In an effort to improve, I love your feedback and input. Thank you again, and I hope you have a great 2019 ahead!
