Hooking Price Filters into Product Search Engine

As a user, I want to be able to search “cheap tape” or “expensive tape” and have the outcome bring to to relevant filtered results.

The Making of a Slider

This blog is about this slider. First a little back story. This is a price filter. But in order for a price filter to work, you need to have products and prices which were feats in and of themselves. These prices come from competing distributors such that best prices are always calculated from the cheapest […]

Let Alex Guberman Write the Questions to be posed Between Two Ferns

I first became aware of Alex Guberman’s YouTube Channel E for Electric at the Semi unveil. His live stream was actually better than Tesla’s which was seemingly having load issues.

Tesla Test Drives – Tesla Referral Program 2.0 (or 3.0?)

At one point Elon outright cancelled Tesla’s referral program. Why do this? Why discard some well-developed money making program? Because it was losing money. You see, when you have more demand than you can meet, driving up demand doesn’t make sense. And incentivizing people to increase demand is counter-productive. Increasing demand is not good for […]

Engineering a TSLA Short Squeeze

I actually did read Jim Cramers Mad Money book. One of the few books I have read. Doesn’t make me an expert, but he described how he himself was short squeezed and since it is way worse than everybody is talking about for TSLA, I feel like it is a good thing to write about […]

Redoing Vs. Leaving it be

This is the big question. And everybody should give you a different answer because there is only so much you can do and redoing shit doesn’t move your forward. Unless it does. The answer can often depend on how short-sighted you want to be. There is always an option to leave things alone, preferably stable […]
