Sorry it’s been so silent here. I’ve been working on my own vertical archipelago system of internet presence, in classic Andean stylee, which is to say that I’ve been establishing footholds in other niches so as to encourage close and fertile collaboration with this one. As part of this, I was asked to write an editorial piece on recent events in Bolivia and obliged…after drinking lots of coffee. Ranting ensued. Stay tuned for more speculative and impatient updates as the election year heats up!
In the meantime, check out some of the interesting and ever-growing sites being put together by Bolivians building communications bridges with the rest of the world, like Red Bolivia Mundo, put together by the prolific and poetic webmistress of Los Bosques, @xeduarda. Then there’s the unstoppable blogging behemoth Angel Caido, with every finger on a different pulse. Don’t take my word for how things are going down in Bolivia: if you’re capable, language-wise, it’s always my preference that you should pay attention to what Bolivians are saying.
