Officially Mothballed

Since 2012 my posts here have been exceedingly irregular, and after 2013 I virtually stopped posting at all.

This is actually my first new post in nearly a year.

For a number of reasons, I simply have less time to blog than I used to (among other reasons, I've been putting more of my time into my books), so that it's been a challenge to keep one blog going, let alone two. And I don't expect that to change in the foreseeable future.

So I'm going to declare this blog officially suspended. When and where I continue to write about the topics to which I devoted this blog (international affairs, space issues, etc.), my posts will appear at my other blog, Raritania (alongside my posts on its principal theme, science fiction and contemporary culture more generally).

In the meantime, this blog will remain up, its content available to anyone who is interested. I even expect to continue responding to all who leave comments, so please feel free to do so if the mood strikes you.

To all who have taken an interest in what I have had to present here--thank you for your time and interest, and I hope to see you over at Raritania.

New Most Read Post

Recently my blog post "Twenty Years After the Cold War: A Strategic Survey" (originally an article I published in the journal Parameters) became this blog's most-read post ever.

The principal country source of traffic to my blog during this period, interestingly enough, has been Ukraine, which hadn't been a big source before. (The top five countries in descending order had been the United States by a long margin, then Russia, Germany, France and the UK.) A comparison of the numbers also makes clear that many of the visitors from Ukraine are looking at that particular page.

Given the events recently in the headlines, I can't help but be intrigued. Everyone's invited to comment here, of course, but if you're one of those visitors, I'm particularly curious as to your thoughts.
