Last month, I asked investment writer/analyst Eddy Elfenbein how his thinking had changed since the start of the financial crisis.

Elfenbein, who writes about investing at Crossing Wall Street, was named by CNNMoney as "the best buy-and-hold blogger" on the Web. To hear how a long-term-oriented investor has adapted his thinking over time, I expanded the question in the below video exchange. (Run time: 1:39; there's also a transcript below.)
