MM is 2

I just found out that Mad Minerva is celebrating her two-year blogiversary. At this point, it's my favorite blog. It has good info about the Chinese scene, academics, politics, culture, thought, and other interesting observations and links. She's going to Haavaad to be a prof, and I really hope she becomes one. It's hard to find critical thinkers in academia--they usually participate in cul-de-sac thinking.

Actually, I have several blogs bookmarked, but the blogs listed on this page are the ones that I feel are the most interesting (thus the title "Personalities"). I still love Rumored (though it's a journal) because his posts are thoughtful. If I'm having one of those introspective moments, I enjoy going over there. It seems honest, as if I'm hanging out with someone at a cafe and we're talking about whatever. I don't think there are many people who enjoy hanging out and talking freely about stuff. I don't know why. Maybe it's because people are busy and they like to put people in pre-defined slots. It's disappointing, but it makes me search for the Exceptions. Sometimes I meet them, and if I don't, then I tolerate the Other Types.

Thanks for the compliment. Maybe I should update more often. :)

Yeah, but then again, you do have a blog and like a million other things to write.
