Featuring discussions on Taiwan, the US, cross-strait relations, science, academia, culture, and more…

Twitter is a revolutionary platform for engaging with people and ideas from all corners. What it lacks is nuance. To compile a coherent thought in the space of 280 characters is not only challenging sometimes… it can also be time consuming. Often there’s just a lot more to unpack, and we need to do it in a format that gives the reader space to breathe, and allows the author to be heard uninterrupted (at least until the audience’s attention is lost). Sometimes you need an article.

QUASI-STABLE will examine issues that consistently provoke me to speak out, especially when a tweet just won’t cut it. My hope is that ideas can be explored here with more care, and less concern about how an errant word might be deliberately or inadvertently misconstrued — issues that are thorny, issues that ask for some temporary understanding between the reader and the author, that for now anyway, we’re endeavoring to understand one another. The world is complex, and it deserves to be treated as such.

I hope you enjoy it.
