A belated introductory toot. I'm a journalist at the Financial Times, and currently work at Alphaville, our finance blog.

I live in Oslo, and I'm Norwegian despite the weird last name. (That means I am required to care more about the Eurovision Song Contest than any sane person should.) I also wrote a book, Trillions, which you should buy.

Btw, FTAV has our own server now, alphaville.club, which we might - time permitting - try to turn into a little community for finance geeks like us.

’Don hivemind… if… let’s imagine… @FTAV created some t-shirts, mugs etc.… what would you want to see?

to be here instead of on journa dot host 😇

On FTX, @louisashworth turned gumshoe detective on the blockchain in an attempt to follow the money. Brace yourself.

Not often you see a company rack up a $1.7bn loss, stop paying its bills, collapse in value from $4.3bn to $55mn — and still triple its private jet bill to $1.8mn. on.ft.com/3EDX3hU

Jemima Kelly inside Mar-a-Lago will probably be the best thing you will read this year. And, exclusive to 'Don, this link will (temporarily) jump the paywall.

Time to introduce myself. Hello!

I'm an economist, writer and professional nerd. timharford.com/

I write books (The Undercover Economist, How To Make The World Add Up, etc).

I present "More or Less" on BBC Radio 4 and the BBC World Service.

My FT column is called "The Undercover Economist"; it's been running since 2005.

I also present "Cautionary Tales", a podcast about learning from other people's mistakes.

Nice to be here.

Does anyone have any recommendations for the best iPhone app to use for Mastodon?

Hi it’s great to have to many people signed up. As a matter of urgency please can everyone ensure they got to preferences and ensure that animated gifs play automatically so my avatar produces maximum value.

BTW, if you read anything good, please share a link. We'll harvest the alphaville.club local stream for Further Reading.

So I successfully managed to migrate servers and bring followers with me, but not my own follows, and it seems my Mastodon app and the desktop version aren’t aligned so I have to manually re-follow people for each platform?
