Hi there, I’m Josh.

I live in Golden, Colorado. I’m a software developer, amateur urban economist, and I’m strongly interested in all aspects of information compression.

Here’s a teaser of the kinds of things we will discuss in the newsletter.

Compare these two images:

subsidized and ugly

I live in Golden, CO, and what’s true in Charleston, South Carolina is true in Golden, Colorado.

Great question! It’s a bit of a winding story, which is why it takes a series of emails to unpack. It’s extremely important to anyone living in Golden, Denver, and the surrounding areas.
