About Me

MeMy name is Kai Liu (刘锴). Born in mainland China in the year 1982 of the common era, I spent only a few years there before moving to the United States. I grew up in a wonderful place: the suburbs of Kansas City. It is a place that I am very fond of and a place that my heart still considers to be home. My core interests include computers (there are three at my desk), economics, and politics (as a moderate libertarian), and for fun, I like to travel, read, enjoy natural scenery, play bridge, and watch sci-fi.

I debated for a while whether or not I want to have an "about me" page and if so, what exactly I should put in it. In every incarnation of my website (and there have been a lot since 1997), I have had such a page, but I was never satisfied with it. These pages would just ramble on, and in the end, present information that serves no purpose and is quickly forgotten (I cannot even remember what I had in my old pages without looking at my archives). So I guess I am just going to leave it at this. If you really want to find out more about me, it is not that hard to find a way to contact me.
