I was the lucky winner of an iPad Air in Commit Action's sweepstakes on Facebook, by Peter Shallard. It is funny that I mentioned Peter Shallard's blog post, Why Inbox Zero works and Tim Ferriss is wrong about email, in the first issue of my newsletter, Lyceum Bulletin.

Here is my unboxing Vine video:
Hat tip to Bryan Armentrout for his nice congrats comment on Facebook.

As a sidenote: I had to pay circa $100 in customs, taxes, and fees, for this gift. As supporter of free trade, this is another example of protectionism by the Swedish state. If you want to support a "poor" capitalist, you could send a donation via PayPal.

3 WORDS FOR 2016

I haven't updated my first blog since my 13th annual blog report. I will continue with EGO blog, here on Blogger / Blogspot, but I will not write so often in the future. My main focus will be to update my forthcoming "umbrella" site, TeaParty.Media, for my social media activities and tea hobby business.

Please, check out my crowdfunding campaign for my first book on tea, over at

On this blog, I will publish cat photos, philosophical ideas and retro blogging stuff, e.g., blog carnivals, memes, etc.

My three words for 2016:

  1. Tea
  2. Win
  3. Book

Do you have 3 words (or more / less) for this year?

I have now been blogging for 13 years and published 2765 posts. Pageviews so far: 695,844. I will update this post with a podcast session in the near future.

Podcasting will continue to be my main focus during the rest of this year and for the years to come. I haven't been active on this blog lately, and I had thoughts on putting it on hiatus for some time, but then this happened at the Curtis Culwell Center in Garland, Texas on May 3:

Please listen to my interview with Bosch Fawstin (September 7, 2011).

I have now decided that I will update EGO blog on a regular basis, at least a couple of times per week. The main topics (labels) will be: cat, politics and religion.

It is time to ban circumcision. This cruel practice is linked to irrational ideas by religious leaders.

Listen to Dr. Leonard Peikoff's answer to the following question:

Do you think the legal guardians of a male child have the right to circumcise him before he is old enough to refuse?, April 25th, 2011.

Check out the Intactivist of the Month (of April, 2011): Penn Jillette.


How did you commemorate the fall of the Berlin Wall? Read Scott Holleran's post, Lessons of the Berlin Wall.


I will update the layout of the EGO blog template over time. I have started with adding an about me page. You find the link to the about page in the right column.
