I study fiscal issues: state and local budget, transportation finance, and nonprofit financial management. I use geeky stuff: statistics (with R), GIS, and LaTeX. In the blog I write about my work; so it is all about fiscal issues & geeky stuff.

To blog, or not to blog?

Too much social media. Too limited attention we all have to offer.

I am debating with myself whether to permanently close this blog.

Or just make it nimbler, maybe?

At the meantime, welcome to my Twitter, or my Weibo.
