Happy Holidays

Merry Christmas. Selamat Natal. Wilujeng Natal. Maligayang Pasko.

Also Wonderful Hanukkah, Joyful Kwanzaa, Great Yuletide, and ultimately Happy Festivus to the rest of us.

I wish you all happy holidays, but if yours aren’t that happy, please don’t blame yourself as statistically the chance to be truly happy during the holidays is near zero 😉 Having said that, please just spend time with your loved ones and try to enjoy, OK? 😀

Sending you all my best from the coldest capital in the world.

Cyber-urban space

So, by the invitation of the editorial team, my term “cyber-urban space” is officially included in The Wiley Blackwell Encyclopedia of Urban and Regional Studies (edited by Anthony M. Orum)
