I am a big believer in living an open life.
In part, this has to do with philosophy, but largely it is based on economics – that if you reduce barriers to trade such as the perception of asymmetry of information between you and a future partner – you are likely to encourage trust and keep yourself honest and encourage sharing of information. For these reasons, among others, I have a del.icio.us account, don’t lie about my weight, tell people my SAT score, my grades, etc. Honesty is the best policy and it lets you know if you are being competitive enough with those around you.
So part of that policy of honesty is letting you know how the Claremont Conservative has been doing. After all, at some measure, you – the viewers – are all shareholders in this dream. So there you have it. We’re at 50,000+ unique visitors since I started this little experiment back in late September.
Some months, particularly the early months, were abysmal, but now we’re growing, growing, growing.
Expect video and audio content within the next six to eight months. I'm working with a few people to bring it online by Fall.
