Why it happened again. An earthquake just hit Chile, before 9pm, local time.
Ordinarily, I don’ t use language such as “morons”, “cheapskates” or “duh” (OK, sometimes “duh”) but I make an exception in this article. I think I was venting. The following questions were proposed on Facebook a few days ago by a friend of mine. Is there such a thing as getting something for free? Should
Really, I don’t understand the commotion about instant messaging (IMing) at work –since employees (as well as employers) are still going to waste time if they want. For instance and perhaps not the case where you work and maybe extreme, but in Chillán, Chile bosses are never in their offices, anyway. They’re always “en terreno”, most
Baya, no entiendo como algunas mini-empresas de provincia no quiebran. Éstas empiezan porque sus fundadores tienen algo de dinero, y no (necesariamente) por un amor al producto o calidad de servicio que proveen.

I got into an argument w/ a sociologist about identity at a BBQ. Is it self-imposed or external? I argued for the external being more important.
Update The newspaper La Discusión decided to mention the exhibition. Even yours truly shows up in a picture. Works by various German artists entitled Exposición Artistas Alemanes-Grabadores de Sajonia Dresden were displayed at the Museo Internacional de la Gráfica de Chillán on January 28, 2011. On the one hand there was no central theme to
I usually write in English, but here I’ll have a go at writing in Chilean (and at times, an informal) Spanish. The italicized words are either common everyday (informal) Chilean Spanish (Castilian if you prefer) and English terms (mostly sociological). Si hay una cosa que me molesta de algunos Chilllanejos (y de muchos Chilenos en
This is a little tardy (something I wrote early on and never published) but people are still asking me about media exploitation I’m not sure to say the media is exploiting it. They (some? channels) certainly have been leaving regular shows aside (telenovelas [soaps] aside) just to televise every single little thing about the rescue
