Interesting posts — Where am I from? edition

I attended a good friend’s wedding in Colorado last weekend, and found myself constantly stumped by difficult questions like “Where are you from?” or “Where are you living these days?”

Some of you might understand the challenge I faced when answering such questions. I had arrived in Colorado from Kenya, and I was flying next to the DC area (where I am now). Later this week I’ll be back in NYC to find an apartment for the next year. Who knows where I’ll be after that. So where am I from? By the end of the weekend, I had a somewhat coherent answer that started with, “Well, I’m kind of in transit at the moment…”

And since I’m in transit, I haven’t posted in a week. I don’t have much to offer besides a few links to interesting posts from my RSS backlog.
