See You in Two Weeks (or on Twitter?)

I will be traveling the world over the next two weeks with limited access to the Internet (actually that is not true, just not bringing a laptop). What will you all do without me? Actually, here are a few options...

1) EconomTwit? Not exactly (I'll stay with EconomPic, though it will be curious to see how my thoughts come across in 140 characters vs. 1 chart). Warning: at this stage I have no idea what I am doing with Twitter... but if I come across anything interesting, I will try my best to share through my Twitter profile starting next week (; you can join the whopping 14 people that currently follow me there).

2) Post yourselves! I learn more from you than you from I. Lets build on that. Use the comments section of this specific post to share interesting economic / market / security specific / political items you come across. Either in words and/or add a link. How to link in Blogger comments you ask (the full links often get cut off)?

Hyperlink: How? Go here to learn the simple code

TinyUrl: Use TinyUrl to create a shortened link

See you all in a few weeks...
