For me, the miracle of this blog is the sheer diversity of the posts: Andrew veers from public policy to neuroscience to inane YouTube clip in the span of thirty minutes. He might write 1000 words on Israeli politics and then, a few seconds later, feature a window view from Uzbekistan.

Andrew has pioneered this blogging trope, the idea that a blog need not be constrained by a single subject or theme or tenor. Instead, he has shown us that it's possible to project an individual mind (and all its contradictions, idiosyncrasies, etc.) into cyberspace, to create a public dialogue out of our private thoughts. Like so many others, I feel like I really know the guy. And we've never even met.
