After a 15 month hiatus, I've decided to revive this site. The main reason is because Squarespace is no longer blocked in China. It was simply too cumbersome to post and edit my site using a vpn, and most of my readership, i.e. folks living in the PRC, couldn't access it, plus I had lost sight of the purpose of this blog. Now I'm coming back with (hopefully) a more coherent vision about what this is about. More to follow soon.
