Finally started writing my book. A little tease here: http://simonyoung.co.nz/mandarin-for-lazy-learners-a-taste/
This is embarrassing. For about a year (a YEAR!) I've been planning to write the book on how I learned (am learning) mandarin Chinese through social media. It's got the attention of a lot of people, and I think there's a market for it. So, I'm finally putting virtual pen to virtual paper.

Just reading this after a nice walk!
 
You can spend days or even years sitting alone in the darkness, over-analyzing a situation from the past, trying to put the pieces together, justifying what could’ve or sould’ve happened.  Or you can just leave the pieces on the floor behind you and walk outside into the sunlight to get some fresh air. - via: http://www.marcandangel.com/2012/07/30/12-things-to-know-before-letting-go/

Very interesting book and very interesting author. I heard him speak yesterday as a keynote at the "New New Zealand forum" put on by Massey University and Westpac bank. Lots of facts I already knew, and a room full of mostly-converter people, but New Zealand's biggest challenge seems to be taking "the Asian Century" seriously, followed by approaching Asian cultures (especially China) with curiosity rather than fear.
