Okay, so there weren’t nearly as many posts on this as I had hoped. I was aiming for a breathless account of the adventures and intellectual transformation that we would undergo during our year at Stanford. Those things happened — lots more than I could have ever imagined. But it turns out that leading an interesting life also means leading a busy one. Life - 1, Blogging - 0.
We’re packing up our house today and tomorrow and headed on yet another adventure. We’re going to spend next year living in the East Bay, in a small town adjacent to Berkeley called Kensington. There, I’ll be working for ProPublica with two of my colleagues who are already located out here. I’d call it ProPublica’s Berkeley Bureau, except it’s not quite big enough to merit the name.
In any case, we’re staying in the Bay Area another year. It’s not so great for uprooting the kids (again), but it is great to have them close to our family, all of whom live out here. So come and visit us in the East Bay. The new house has lovely views of the Golden Gate. And room for visitors, unlike our teeny tiny Palo Alto home.
