Radio postmortem

UPDATE: Here’s a link to the interview (in which I sure do overuse the phrase “y’know”), which also includes my colleague at CU William Wei.

Just finished up a brief interview on KTRH radio in Houston talking about the tensions on the Korean peninsula. I didn’t really have much to add beyond yesterday’s post on the topic, but it was a pretty enjoyable experience. Sure, I’m just one more (fairly quiet) talking head in the cacophony talk on this issue, but there’s something satisfying about having an immediate outlet for one’s expertise that can, in this case, reassure people that the evidence points to a pretty low chance of this thing escalating to war. To the extent that happened, I’m satisfied.

More to come throughout the day, especially as more of those leaked diplomatic cables hit the web. Speaking of which, here’s Blake Hounshell at FP with a pretty thoughtful take on this mess so far…

New web host

After running into space limitations at CU and disappointed with how little integration I managed between my main site and and my previous off-site-hosted version of the blog, I’ve decided to give up all pretense of making it look of a piece and move to WordPress. I’ve brought over a couple of posts from the old site, but since most of it was shilling for my own research (and since I’ll be doing enough of that on the new blog), I left it behind. Some more old posts might migrate over, but only when if I run out of timely new ideas…

So, uh, reader (?), adjust your links accordingly.

Good night, and good luck.
