Calculated Risk interview

Nice interview with Calculated Risk's Bill McBride on Business Insider (h/t Paul Krugman). CR/Bill was an icon to a lot of us back when (you know you were one if you recoginze his original masthead, above!).
JW: Are you surprised at the institution that Calculated Risk has become? Did you think you’d be going strong 7 years later?
BM: It’ll be 8 years in January. I didn’t even know what a blog was. I’m going to start one and figure out what it is, and I’m going to write about housing, because that’s what I’m most concerned about. …What happens is it just got more and more interesting, the truth is I’m always interested in the economy
I'm still tracking Westside inventory monthly, just haven't gotten around to posting it. I'll do a year-end summary for 2012. The short summary is, significantly lower inventory than previous years.
