I’ve never written a blog before. Blogs seem appropriate for shareable thought fragments, ramblings that are too long for twitter, and the germs of ideas that may eventually blossom into something more. I am not sure yet if my blog posts will fall into any of these categories. Topically, most of what I will have to say will likely touch on topics related to housing policy, urban and regional planning, local government structure and finance, and applied social and political philosophy. The line between these topics and science fiction is very thin and fuzzy, so don’t be surprised to also find a post or two about the latest sci-fi novel I’ve enjoyed.
