I’ve been slow to keep up with my Feedly, and just came across this post at the Duck of Minerva. Someone has nominated me for an Online Achievement in International Studies (OAIS) award—known also as a “Duckie.”

I am completely flattered. To my unknown nominator: thank you! To my readers who enjoy my methods discussions, maps of Southeast Asia, obsession with microfoundations, movie reviews, musings on language, and other miscellany, thanks for reading. To those of you who remember the earliest days of the blog at indolaysia.typepad.com, and early posts like this one where I discuss the Boxing Day tsunami from Jakarta, well before anyone had any idea how bad it was, thanks for sticking around.
