On starting a WordPress blog

Science may be described as the art of systematic over-simplification  — the art of discerning what we may with advantage omit.

Karl Popper, The Open Universe : An Argument for Indeterminism (1992)


It’s disturbing to realize that you are taking more time than you should to fully grasp what you are reading. Come to think of it, I’ve been constantly writing papers and tidbits in my own native tongue – Korean – but not in English, which doesn’t seem very wise considering that I’m planning to do a PhD in the States. So hello WordPress, you’ll serve as my scribbling wall. Thanks in advance.

Brief introduction about myself: fledgling would-be economist. Loves Count Basie, Ella Fitzgerald, Nat King Cole, and Frank Sinatra. Also has a soft spot for Austen, Brontë, and Dickens. Specific research interests still developing. 6 months spent in Malawi working for a health economics RCT project. Muli bwanji?

There you have it.
Hello world.
