Hello World

New to blogging and with no particular sense of style or purpose, this will be my first post. Ya know, just to get the ball rolling.

I'll be discussing whatever I feel like here, but the primary focus will be the intersection of monetary theory and technology. Bitcoin and its ecosystem will undoubtedly be the most oft-discussed topic for the time being. I have no fundamental opposition to the existence of any of the so-called altcoins, but I subscribe to a winner-take-all model of money (albeit path-dependent), and thus believe that the most likely outcome is that all the altcoins will die out eventually and should garner attention only as idiosyncratic case studies.

But alas, we'll be tackling the why and the how of such conjectures in more detail in the future. Check back soon!

Finally, I'll end with a quote that will simultaneously be a caveat to my readers and a theme of this blog, even if it's not yet apparent what that is.
I guess I should warn you, if I turn out to be particularly clear, you've probably misunderstood what I've said.
