Sinchi's Collected Works



July 16, 2009 – Comments (16)

The time has come for another list of links to my recent Fool articles. While each article is conceived as a stand-alone piece, I believe that my investigative style makes them work best as a compendium. I've always been a big picture guy, and in my financial research I'm constantly looking for patterns among the reams of information I sift through on a daily basis. As patterns become corroborated elsewhere, they evolve into working hypotheses in motion that I believe are of value to Foolish readers. I hope you agree.

One of the things I'm committed to as a writer is to not suffer the same myopia that I see as rampant in the financial media ... where one's eyes are pressed so closely to a topic that you can't REALLY tell what's going on. I try to accomplish this by zooming out at every chance ... zooming out conceptually, geographically, chronologically, etc. I'm trying to weave a tapestry out of a million pieces of string. Please let me know how I'm doing ... I love hearing your feedback!

Finally, if you can believe it, I now tweet. :) Yup, the guy that's too old fashioned to own a cell phone has now entered the realm of the uber-chic instant gratification crowd. I've selected Twitter as a convenient means of posting real-time links to each of my published articles and CAPS blog posts as they come out. :) If you're hoping for updates of when I go to the bathroom or what I've had for breakfast, you'll be disappointed. However, those of you who have been asking me how you can easily track my contributions to The Motley Fool, this is the best I have come up with for now. If you're on Twitter, please come find me and tell me you're from CAPS. Maybe I'll follow you too and find out what you've had for breakfast. :)

Please enjoy these articles, and thank you as always for your readership and your feedback!

Ouch ... the links all failed ... :( That was a big waste of time, sorry Fools ... guess you'll have to search for the titles that interest you ... I don't have time to repeat that process. :(

Anyone know when links will be back up and running ... this is painful.
