  1. » Update 1 – From the Windy City Early Retirement Extreme: — a combination of simple living, anticonsumerism, DIY ethics, self-reliance, and applied capitalism

    Just for the metaphor about why it can be good to have a slightly popular blog, but not too popular: “if you’re living in the 16th century, discussing your round earth theory with fellow scientists is good. However, being publicly known as the round-earth guy will get you burned at the stake.”

  2. Peak oil, the next Kondratiev cycle, generational turnings, and ERE Early Retirement Extreme: — The choice nobody ever told you about

    Great thinking on long term futures. Kondratiev cycles, peak oil, the downturn, the next world war, generations. Well worth a read.

  3. Three different definitions of retirement and the resulting confusion Early Retirement Extreme: — when more time > more money

  4. Early Retirement Extreme: — written by Jacob Lund Fisker, Freelancer

    Fascinating to read something like this (save 70-80% of your income, invest it, spend little, retire after five years) written by someone who has the perspective to know it’s not for everyone. (via Oliver Burkeman’s Guardian column)
