There’s a version of this story that makes the following completely obvious, but, all the same, I’m putting Lithchat on hiatus. When I started the bloggy version of the site, it was still rather difficult to get news about Lithuania in English, and I felt connected to a large network of people who were eager […]
The old version of Lithchat (the mailing list) used to sponsor NCAA tournaments. That role has been overtaken by the various March Madness software packages available all over the web. The FIFA 2010 Men’s World Cup Finals, however, seem untouched by such software, so Lithchat is offering its own World Cup Challenge: Lithchat 2010 World […]
As I wrote here last year, I was interviewed by lietuviams.com. Somehow this made me eligible to be chosen as lietuviams.com’s Person of the Year. So if you feel like voting for me, click this link and then tick off the stars (yes, you can vote proportionally). Then you can click here to see everyone […]
I’m pretty excited about announcing two new functionalities to this website that will hopefully allow users to interact with it more usefully: Twitter and Facebook Connect.

Every few years, I changeup how Lithchat looks and works, in an effort to make it more available to whoever stumbles upon it. Four years ago (or so), the idea was to move it to an intensely complex CMS (joomla), so as to make it more multi-authored. Sadly, Joomla is a terror to maintain, and […]
As I mentioned in the last post, a more detailed interview with me (and a neat photo!) appeared in lietuviams.com on Monday. It was since picked up by delfi and alfa, and my comment about envisioning Vilnius as a Disney World Fantasyland even ended up being the “dienos citata” at delfi. So that’s that. So […]
I met yesterday afternoon with Monika Bončkutė, the correspondent to Lietuvos rytas and editor of Vakarai. We talked at Caffé Florian for over two hours (well, I did most of the talking), and she collapsed it all into a brisk little article that is now up on lrytas.lt. A more, how shall I say, pensive […]
