Friday was a highlight in my personal finance writing career. NetworthIQ and Expensr hosted a meeting in San Francisco. I got to meet Flexo, Jim, SVB, J.D. and his wife, Cap, Sam, John, Jeffrey, and James. The idea was to brainstorm about the next generation of personal finance tools. If you want a good recap, I suggest these article from Get Rich Slowly and The Digerati Life. I find it funny that I just finished writing that personal finance isn’t about the tools and here I am consulting on them. Perhaps soon, I’ll detail how my “ideal personal finance tool” would work.
