Why subscribe?

To read my musings and to become a more informed person on matters technology, genetics, history and politics. I’ll do my best.

The title of this Substack is lifted from Churchill’s great book Thoughts and Adventures, which I first read when I was attending that conference. A man, I think, should be dedicated to a life of thought and adventure.

The inspiration for this work comes from reading Churchill’s collection of essays, Great Contemporaries, which left a stirring impression on me when I read it in my late teens. Some years ago I attended a conference on Churchill put on Professor James Muller at the Hotel del Coronado. My grandparents are from Coronado and I regard it as the closest place to heaven that I’m likely to see.

Coronado is a special place.

"Hear this, young men and women everywhere, and proclaim it far and wide. The earth is yours and the fullness thereof. Be kind, but be fierce. You are needed now more than ever before. Take up the mantle of change. For this is your time." — Churchill 

Full disclosure: I am also a somewhat successful entrepreneur and investor and the companies I have backed are valued at over $8B+ and counting. I try not to mix church and state but I’m human and likely mix it too often.

I am currently serving as CEO of Traitwell.com.
