We're movin' on up!
"You'll be seeing a lot of changes around here. Papa's got a brand new bag."
Good morning and welcome back to the freaky shack. It's Friday the 13th in the city of critters and that can only mean one thing--we've got a three day respite waiting in the wings! While Minyans kick back to focus on the important stuff, MVHQ will work through the weekend as we ready to unveil our spanking new digs. President Fish likes to say that this isn't a website, it's a portal--a network--the "output" side of the nextgen input/output digital media experience. We're pretty excited and, come Tuesday, you'll share those very same vibes.
This iteration of the Minyanville experience is our latest effort to close the chasm between fiscal literacy and real-time experience. We often say that our mission is to "enrich human potential through financial understanding" and that vision will manifest when you see the fresh format and added functionality. We'll also welcome a few new professors to the hood and dig a bit deeper on the idea generation front. Our directive will remain educational, of course, but the process will be a bit more granular as we dig in to add value.
Looking forward, 2006 promises to build on the critter mission of forthright fiscal literacy. Professor Succo and I will head to Harvard and UPENN this spring to talk to the Minyans of tomorrow. President Fish and I will return to the 'Cuse to share some media vibes with the Newhouse kids. Matt Ford and his NKU team continue to build the UMV University Syndicate that is growing by the day (click here to join). And, based on some recent discussions, you may soon find critter thumbprints on the front end of an educational learning ladder that extends from the ABC's to 401(k)'s.
Speaking of our commitment to editorial excellence, we've started to kick the tires on the much anticipated Minyans in the Mountains: Part Tres. We're currently eyeing the second weekend in August but it's a "soft circle" until we lock down the professors, panelists and key notes. Those who trekked to Ojai can attest to the virtues of human capital and the benefit of the Minyan network. I have a hard time finding the right words to describe this annual retreat but it's....magical.
We'll walk through today's financial fray on the Buzz but I wanted to take some time to share this exciting juncture in the 'Ville. It's been a heckuva journey to date--both for Minyanville and the Ruby Peck Foundation for Children's Education--and it wouldn't be possible without good Minyans like yourself. On behalf of everyone at MVHQ and the Minyanville Circle of Trust, we wanna thank you for your continued support. This is indeed a giant step forward.
Good luck today.
