Re: Chilean Crime Novel in English

Physically publishing a book is massively risky. E-pub can establish that there is an audience and generate some buzz. "Sell it to real customers for real money then the investment will find you."

Re: Funny but useless account of trip to Chile

The author is said to be "Special to the Montreal Gazette" yet the tiny publisher did not consider his article on Chile special enough to publish.

HUDWAY Cast sits on the dashboard and wirelessly streams your smartphone screen to a reflector lens positioned right in front of you.
Not yet on Amazon, but their other products are poorly rated -- especially the apps. This thing won't work without a good app.

Re: Irishtimes hatchet job on Chile

At least the author admits his world view is as distorted and simplistic as his universal answer. Isn't a more mature and useful philosophy to understand reality and accept it and respond according to your values, rather than to only ask "why"?
