I have been blogging here at Everything Rum since 2007. My first posting was a Consciousness Riff. I used to blog at Outside Walls, mostly on Kosovo, but closed that down a while ago. In the Everything Rum space I've blogged on quantum physics, cosmology & space/time, biking, the state of the world, capitalism, the Articles of Confederation and sometimes on politics. State Department cables (cleared through FOIA) and other related material from my time serving as a US diplomat can be found at Real Diplomacy. Since 2009, I was writing on international issues at TransConflict.
Now I am branching out. I've tried Twitter and Facebook in the past but didn't stay with them. I'm now returning to Twitter to connect and to accompany my expanded blogging here. I'll be commenting as I see useful and perhaps will find others who if not in agreement at least have some reason to stop and reflect. My first effort will follow shortly on the US and Russia.
