Here are some things that I do when I'm not busy slacking at taxpayer expense - in other words, working for the University of Michigan.
Chinese studies has been the focus of my academic career in one way or another for the past 7 or 8 years. Some years I was less focused than others, to which several UT faculty members can attest. To those folks I owe a great deal.
Chinese history and literature are my primary focii for study. I think that literature of a given period allows for unique insights into that period that straight history texts do not give.
More links as I find them...if you know of any good ones, let me know.
Forget the hype - it's not just a bunch of college freshmen trying to pick up each other from their dorm rooms. Sure, there's a bunch of them out there, but with 20,000 users and expanding, it offers much more if you allow it to. You get out of it what you put into it.
I can frequently be found on #hottub during the daytime. A pox on each and every one of the people who have publicized #hottub as a sex-channel; it is my fervent wish that karmic retribution involve taking their home phone numbers and advertising them as phonesex numbers on late-night TV commercials featuring tackily-clad models. Then, and only then, would they begin to realize the lameness we now deal with on a daily basis.
#Hottub is, for all intents and purposes, a whimsical oligarchy run by a dysfunctional extended family. A fantastic web page is maintained by Arsenio Santos for #hottub . It's worth looking at on design and technical merits alone, even if you're not particularly curious about #hottub.
