"It was the really boring things like the fact that there was really good insulation and you could walk around indoors in your underwear even though it’s minus 20 outside that got me," he tells The Local, laughing. “So when people ask me if I’m a love refugee I say no… it’s insulation. And the other thing is I like the fact that there are seasons here. Ireland has not so much variation between winter and summer. I enjoy the seasons we have here that are very different.” Ryan was working for Greenpeace when he first came to Sweden as part of a six month project in 2007, and indeed has spent most of his adult life working NGOs. Though he had long wanted to go out on his own and run a business, he always found the prospect of compromising his morals to be tricky: “The only thing I could think of is that it’d be interesting to start a business that could use some of the ethical principles of non-profit, and in a way that both the consumer, … [Read more...] about ‘When people ask me if I’m a love refugee in Sweden I say no…it’s the insulation’
I’m taking a trip around the world that will have me travelling for many months on end as Business Insider’s International Correspondent. I wanted to bring only a carry-on suitcase and a backpack so I could travel lighter and avoid baggage fees on the numerous flights I’ll be taking.

When I started planning my round-the-world trip, there was no shortage of packing liststo draw from. But most packing lists are laughably small. Minimalism is the dominant philosophy of travel bloggers everywhere. That wasn’t going to work for me. My … [Read more...] about I’m taking a trip around the world with only a carry-on suitcase — here’s everything I packed
For two years, I had owned a cryptomining machine and never even known it. I currently have two of the most powerful graphics cards you can buy at the moment – the GTX 1080, which I then upgraded to the GTX 1080 Ti – which just so happen to be some of the best graphic cards for cryptomining. Cryptomining is basically the process of solving complex problems to verify digital transactions using computer hardware – in this case, a graphics card. By mining, miners can either create a cryptocurrency, or they can get paid for their processing power in a cryptocurrency. Those graphics card cost me a pretty penny, even if I bought them before the massive graphics card price hikes caused by cryptominers buying up all the cards. And when I wasn’t gaming, my GTX 1080 and GTX 1080 Ti just lay there, doing nothing, not making me money. No more. One day, I randomly decided to try mining cryptocurrency with them. I was making some profit at first, but not very much. So I got … [Read more...] about I’ve started to mine cryptocurrency and I’m making a profit — here’s how I did it
