My name’s pronounced like Karl, not Carol, but you’ll get it wrong anyway so relax.
This about page used to be “clever” and list my accomplishments (you know: “oh hey I’ve made millions and lost millions and here are some anecdotes about that” or “oh look at me I use a colemak keyboard“), but you know what? I don’t want to add to all of the self-congratulatory ego-centric bullshit in this world already. (Our President-elect does enough of that for the whole country. ha) Maybe that’ll change tomorrow. (Or you can read the brag-laden about me here and my short book about failure here.)
I rarely write essays in public anymore. And I’m prone to making my public posts password protected so if you’re not subscribed to my newsletter you can’t read them. I send e-mails to my newsletter list in spurts. Sometimes it’ll be months before you hear from me, but then I’ll send 5 e-mails in a week. And like everybody else I don’t know what we’re doing here either.
I give my extra money to Freedom From Religion Foundation*, because I escaped Poland for a reason and the separation of church and state is important to the principles of the United States.
I don’t answer e-mails. But sometimes I do.
*And people on the street. And random causes that people I know are part of. And LGBTQ rights. And abortion rights.
