Changes at Sunk Costs Are Irrelevant

I have three big announcements:

  1. Facebook commenting has been removed!  I replaced the commenting system with Disqus which will allow you to post anonymously or by Twitter handle or by Facebook or Disqus or Google+.  Basically any way you want to comment, you can now.  So please comment away!
  2. Google has announced the end of Google Reader so if you read SCAI by RSS, then please know that Google Reader is scheduled to shut down July 1, 2013.  If you would like to save Google Reader, feel free to sign the petition over at  If you need a new reader, you might want check out  I don’t like it as much as Google Reader, but it does provide a pretty seamless transition between the two.
  3. I’m building a personal finance app!  I’m using revenues I’ve made from this site through the years to hire out the programming and user interface.  The app will use a freemium revenue model where we release 2 versions.  The free version will have all the basic functioning while the premium version will offer all the bells and whistles.  More on this in the weeks and months to come.  No release date is set although I have an alpha version running on my phone now.  If we are successful on Android, we’ll build an iOS version too!

  • Way to go on getting rid of Facebook comments. =)

    Have you tried bloglovin? That and Feedly are the two replacements for google reader that seem to be getting the most good feedback.

  • Dan

    Thanks for the improvements – I feel comfortable commenting now!

    • Happy to accommodate everyone!

  • Evan R

    Much better! I couldn’t comment since I only have a personal FB account. What’s the app going to do?

    • Thanks Evan. It’s going to be a personal finance tool focused on student loan debt but applicable to debt in many forms.
