I’m now a contributor to Occam’s Aftershave, a new venture I’m starting with an old friend, J.P. Crosby. You can read my first post, “The Danger of Narratives,” here.

I don’t plan on abandoning Babel Frog, despite the recent lack of activity here. Perhaps this new venture will serve as a shot in the arm for this poor site.


I’m scrambling to pull together a coherent paper about federalism in Sri Lanka. It’s actually more interesting than it sounds.

But it also has left me scrounging for ways to procrastinate, and I think starting this blog was a direct result of that. I’ve also done an inordinate amount of cleaning today.
