(Our portcos weaved in the links)

Our wishes for the rest of 2021. The holiday fairy missed our request,
so here is it in all its glory to some new recipients. Santa and Hanukkah Harry
finally got their vaccinations and are able to deliver this gift to you.

Dear Easter Bunny and Passover Elijah,

From Tony at RampRate, many years of age

I tried to write this wishlist to Santa

But the elves seem to have quarantined that page


We’re not home free, so some help is still required

So as much as my rabbi might look askance

I’ll write to the Bunny and to Lakshmi for Diwali

To the Spaghetti Monster if it helps my chance


First, please keep helping the world heal back better

Like the spring that blooms after the darkest nights

Help us blossom from the year that went on forever

With more peace, joy, and love, a lot less strife


Instead of shiny cars, let’s get some better drivers

Instead of newer gadgets, more moments to connect

Instead of money, fewer career and social climbers

That only think of the profit that things net


The second thing I’m humbly requesting

Might be too big, but still, I have to ask

Is for the world to really start investing

In tech for everyone, not just addictive apps


Help us find a natural path to healing

Medicinal and tribal psychedelics, even cannabis

Vetted by doctors and with no concealing

Of odd supply chains, harm, or ineffectiveness

Please rid us of the quacks and fakers

As the world gets back to work in full health

Build new communities of difference-makers

Build new see ways to measure our real wealth

New internet – fast, simple, with security

Financial independence for students 

Investments that democratize opportunity

Data so that our wallets fund what’s in our hearts


A bit more sanity in our social network feeds

Even a couple dozen reasoned thoughts would do

Cops who protect and serve those who don’t look like me

Laws that help the many and not just the few


And finally, the present that’s most exciting

Whether in an Easter egg or under my special tree

It’s probably the main reason that I’m writing

Is a newer, better, more impactful me


The me that breathes love and kindness

The one that finds joy every day at work

The person who bikes and exercises

The kind who’s calm even when faced by jerks


And for my RampRate  team, a brand new focus

A bit more of what bright stars like them crave

To earn something more than cash and tokens

To go beyond the millions we make or save


For them, a product and service to heal the corporate psyche

Aligning teams, suppliers, people, and the world

To help supply chains invest in impact more wisely

Stay tuned, it’s something we will soon unfurl


The world is changing – I believe it’s for the better

And while I’d love help from the bunnies and the elves

If the post office misdirects this letter

That’s still all right – we’ll fix the world ourselves


Since cookies are not the healthiest treats for browsers or reindeer

And chimney visits could spread more than holiday cheer

I’m maybe sending you botanical treasures from Kauai which I hold dear

Let’s take some time to reconnect in this refreshing year

Here is an update on RampRate and my personal investments:
