Abstract: This note addresses two aspects of Minkowski measurability. First we present a short "dynamical systems" proof of the characterization of Minkowski measurable compact subsets of $ \mathbb{R}$. Second, we use a renewal theory argument to point out that "most" self-similar fractals are Minkowski measurable and calculate their Minkowski content.
