A Public Record
AVC has been going on for almost 14 years now. I write every day, mostly about tech and investing in startups and observations about entrepreneurs and entrepreneurship.
WordPress says I have posted 7,622 times. That is more than once a day but that is because I used to post multiple times a day. Now I can barely find the time to write once a day.
Anyway, posting your thoughts and investment ideas every day creates a public record.
That can be bad when you are consistently wrong about something, like I have been about Apple since Steve Jobs left the company.
But all in all, I would not have it any other way.
A few days ago, Founder Playbook posted a timeline of my writing on Bitcoin and Blockchain, stating that “Since 2011, Fred has been bullish, yet critical, on the crypto market.”
I have been a believer in Bitcoin, Blockchain, and Crypto since 2011 and my confidence in this macro investment thesis gets stronger every day.
And I will continue to critique the sector, calling it out when I see things like greed, infighting, or other issues that get in the way of its collective success.
One could do a similar lookback on my roughly decade long obsession with social media that led me to blogging and ended around the time I fell for crypto.
I tend to get obsessed about one thing and write a lot about it. Which creates a public record. You can’t hide from that, but then again blogging is the opposite of hiding.
