Three Matters On My Mind

1. Emma Trincal

An artistically gifted friend of mine, Emma Trincal, is showing her paintings between October 28 and November 4 at Shop Talk Art Gallery, at 35 Lafayette Avenue, Brooklyn, NY 11217. Follow your bliss, Emma!

2. Nanotechnology

I have written about nanotechnology in this blog before. In May of this year, I wrote that it has "potentially cosmic implications." It has a lot to do with our fate as a species, and our constant battle with the second law of thermodynamics.

Accordingly, I am happy to note that the Nobel Prize in physics went to nano pioneers this year. Life a glass with Maxwell's demon sitting at your table to Andre Geim and Konstantin Novoselov the thinnest possible flakes of carbon.

3. A New Blog

Seward & Kissel LLP has started what may prove to be a fascinating web destination, the 40 Act Blog. Well, not fascinating to everyone, perhaps, but to the huge portion of the human species that consists of finance regulations wonks.

Knowledge is warranted belief -- it is the body of belief that we build up because, while living in this world, we've developed good reasons for believing it. What we know, then, is what works -- and it is, necessarily, what has worked for us, each of us individually, as a first approximation.
