I’m working on a big change for this site. For almost a year, I wrote from Washington, D.C. Over that time some of my goals have developed, and I have a more complete vision for what I’d like to create in this space. Right now I’m at Stanford University in California working many hours a day to learn Mandarin as quickly as possible. As I mentioned before, I’ll be moving to Beijing to sink myself further into studies and to learn about how people and countries interact in East Asia and across the Pacific.
In what spare time I have here, I’m working on a relaunch for this website, something which I expect to complete by the summer’s end. Some of the content may change, but the goal of providing insight into the relations among China, Japan, and the United States will not change.
While I’m working on the relaunch, I will have less time to write, but I think you will appreciate the new structure. And I am sure moving from the capital of the United States of America to the capital of the People’s Republic of China will provide ample subject matter.
