Acorn Community Spring 2009 Update

Well, it’s been a crazy winter for Acorn. The business’ rapid growth in the past couple of years has given way to breakneck growth this winter. Southern Exposure Seed Exchange grew at a rate of about 70% over last year for January and February of this year. The community population, however, has not and the resulting situation has meant widespread craziness and long long hours. So significant has been the growth that this year we’ve begun, in a charming bit of historical reciprocity, to hire Twin Oakers to help us handle the extra business. For the first many years of Acorn’s existence we supported ourselves making hammocks for Twin Oaks and it’s nice to finally be in a position where we can be there for them.

Why I Watch the Stock Market: Fairy Tale of the Collapse

I do not now, nor have I ever, personally owned stocks. I don’t think I’ve ever even felt the slightest financial interest in investing in the stock market. It’s likely due, it part, to my more pressing financial interests in groceries and heat bills, but I’m not sheltered or dense. I’m aware of the systems and carry some layman knowledge of its mechanisms. I read history and I didn’t sleep through my economics class. And, I’ve got this unending, morbid fascination.
