The economist Andy Xie once wrote that the internet is a place for people to express their narcissism cheaply. If that's so, then here is mine: some blogs and videos about my observations of world culture, language and history. I've been lucky to have lived in a lot of different places and studied some languages along the way, and so I'm writing down some of this on the slim chance that it's of passing interest to anyone. And the videos — they are fun to make, and maybe one day I'll find a way to turn a dollar from them — I hope you enjoy them. As for me, I am Michael, I work as a news editor and live in Los Angeles with my wife and two kids. I can be such a fool sometimes, but I promise that whatever you read in the language blog is accurate to the best of my knowledge and research. The stuff in the history blog is sometimes just based on my memory, but for the most part it's corroborated by journals that I've kept throughout much of my life, and so I believe it faithfully records what happened. Thank you for visiting this website!
