Several years ago on Coming Anarchy, “Curzon” jounred across Far East, including the cities of Tokyo, city of Nanjing, Shanghai, and Suzhou.

I just got back from a month long trip, in which I visited these cities as well as a few new ones, such as Phnom Penh and Ubud. The journey was remarkable, and the admiration I had for the writers over at Coming Anarchy played a big role in keeping me interested in traveling.
The blog Coming Anarchy is now 5 years old.
CA, along with Zenpundit and TPMB, inspired me to start blogging.
Note: This is a selection from Coming Anarchy, part of tdaxp‘s SummerBlog ’06
My interview with Dr. Thomas PM Barnett was the minor research project for Creativity, Talent, and Exerptise. The major project was a profile of Coming Anarchy — a rising blog that focuses on international affairs. CA is poised to be one of the most influential blogs in this world, and this series explores the ingredients of Chirol’s, Curzon’s, and Younghusband’s recipe for success.
The presentation is by me. The text often included below the slides was compiled by my partner, Matthew Gleason.
