This page is out of date as of late 2011. We'll get a new version up at some point, but don't hold your breath. There's some good crazy posts lately though, look at November and December 2011 as a jumping off point.
New around town? Good. Howdy. Welcome.
I'm Sebastian Marshall. You can read more about me on my About Page if you want the details. Long story really short, I'm a strategist, entrepreneur, technologist, avid reader and writer, casual historian, cowboy scientist, and I like doing some adventure and travel type stuff.
I make myself way more accessible than most people do. You can email me at sebastian -at- sebastianmarshall.com (brief emails get faster replies than long emails).
More contact info - please feel very welcome to reach out through any channel. I'm @sebastmarsh on Twitter - if you follow, I encourage you to send an @message to say hi. "@sebastmarsh hi how's it going?" will do. Here's Sebastian Marshall's Facebook - I spend traveling through countries where it's blocked (Vietnam, China, etc) so don't panic if I don't accept a friend request immediately. Next time I'm on a proxy or outside those places I'll approve. You can also find me at LessWrong and Hacker News. I comment extensively on HN, my profile there is lionhearted.
Wow. We've had over 10,000 visitors in the last 24 hours. It started with "How do I write so much, you ask? Well, glad you asked -" hitting the front page of Hacker News, but then there's been a steady stream of tweets and blog referrals. It's been crazy, and it's still going. After it settles down I'll do an analysis post on the traffic, comments, emails I've gotten, etc.
This leaves me scratching my head - hmm, I now have a lot of new visitors and readers (hi, welcome, glad you're onboard). And like I said in "How do I write so much?", I don't think someone can exactly control the quality of their output. You give your best, but you're not always firing at your highest level.
So I'm cheating, and I'm producing a best-of here. I took the best posts on here, and grouped them in a way so you can find exactly what you're looking for. I'd also like to invite you to comment on which you like, make suggestions, ask questions - I read every comment. Alright, here we go -
