A new post about a recent book Book Sprints with the WWF (the one with the animals…errr…non-humans…)
They are awesome, but man, talk about a good work out on the shoulders… the paddle out is soooo much further than I’m used to! I can see why all these locals look like they are 50% shoulder muscle 🙂
We expected maybe 40 tops… over 200!
You probably won’t hear about it as not much news from Albania gets into the big media news bloodstream, but there was a 5.6 earthquake just outside Tirana today.
I have the impression (I was there a few weeks ago) that the buildings there are not prepared for such shakes. Some countries can take a 5.6 and be totally fine but I expect there will have been quite some damage in Tirana.
I hope all the folks there are going to be ok. Sounds like water etc is cut off.
I have some pretty lovely emails from people that have submitted nominations for the Open Publishing Awards. It’s funny how you doing things like this is a way of magicking appreciation out of the air. People appreciate it. Of course 🙂
Also, speaking of appreciation, I just had a drink with an old buddy Ted Byfield. He’s one of the smartest people I know and generous with his intelligence. Lovely guy. Great to see him and catch up.
I’m currently motivated to get more visitors per day to the Coko site than my (this) blog. For some reason a lot of publishing folk read this blog – I keep running across folks at publishing confs that ask me stuff about where I’m surfing and how am I finding the new camera 🙂 … anyways. Getting the Coko hits up there… any day now!
