Hi, folks –

I started this website in July 2010 as a personal blog… As of July 2013, this hasn’t really taken off, though plans exist to revive it.


Mainly for three reasons:

  • Keep some sort of virtual diary, so I’d be able to look back at these notes in a few years and remember how I thought and felt
  • Stay in touch with friends
  • Create a small community to discuss interesting things in a format more friendly, than conventional Facebook/Twitter.  This is primarily why I chose to go with my own web platform.  Maybe some day friends will start their own threads here and the site will grow into something bigger


I’m in my late twenties early thirties, based in London, spending a lot of time on the plane for work… Previously, I lived in Moscow (for a very long time) and New York (for a very short time). See ‘Contact’ on how to approach me.


This space will provide updates and hopefully fun discussion around topics interesting for me any my friends.  Including, but not limited to:

  • Investing and finance
  • Sports
  • Books
  • Aviation
  • PCs and Gadgets
  • Politics and economics
  • Movies and TV
  • Music


Rules are simple really, hopefully sensible too:

  • The site is free to browse, read and post comments for anyone
  • Posting a comment doesn’t require registration, only providing a nickname
  • Only first comment from a nickname/username requires admin approval
  • Comments are strictly monitored: no fouling!
  • Some sections of the site may be restricted – mainly at authors’ request
  • If you would like to contribute – please email admin@rimidalv.com

Enjoy and participate!
