Why Do I Pay For Courses If Knowledge Is Freely Available?


If it’s not clear from the subtitle of this blog or many blog posts, I like learning. In fact, I love learning. A lot of that learning has recently been in the form of paid courses and nano-degrees. Most people I know ask me why I prefer paying for knowledge that is freely available in other ways. Let me share my side of the story and let’s see if it makes sense to you.

The Silence Of Living Alone


I live alone. I wasn’t forced into it. Like all of us, I had seen movies and how they romanticised living alone. The exaggerations check out.

Last Week I (Almost) Wrote A Blog Post From A Movie Theatre


I like writing, but I’m not one of the snobs who love a typewriter. Alright, I am. However, affording a vintage typewriter and maintaining it is hard.
