Where’s ZGBriefs?


Since 2002, I have had the privilege of compiling the ZGBriefs Newsletter each week. I travel a lot, which means that I have to pull it together wherever I happen to be on a Wednesday or Thursday. As I was putting it together last week, I got to thinking about all the different places that I have worked on ZGBriefs.

Bangkok, Thailand
Beijing, China
Boston, MA
Cape Town, South Africa
Changchun, Jilin Province
Chengdu, Sichuan Province

My commitment to producing ZGBriefs each week is unwavering. Which means that if you spot me huddled over my computer in some
random location on a Wednesday or Thursday, I’m probably working on ZGBriefs.
