Michael Mandberg wrote software that parses the entirety of the English-language Wikipedia database and programmatically lays out nearly 7500 volumes, complete with covers, and then uploads them to Lulu.com for print-on-demand. Print Wikipedia draws attention to the sheer size of the encyclopedia's content and the impossibility of rendering Wikipedia as a material object in fixed form: Once a volume is printed it is already out of date. It is also a work of found poetry built on what is likely the largest appropriation ever made. As we become increasingly more dependent on information and source material on the Internet today, Mandiberg explores the accessibility of its vastness.< Less

Adventures in India, Nepal and Sri Lanka. Let's go to India for a few sublimely ridiculous non-adventure holidays. It's hot, cheap and freaky over there. These are the stories of my three trips to... More > India. Most of the action happens in India, but Nepal, Sri Lanka, Singapore, New Zealand, Australia, Indonesia, Netherlands and England also feature. If you have ever travelled in South Asia, you will probably relate to some of this. Look out for the story of the two laundry men who looked similar to each other. They caused all kinds of confusion. The first India trip was from the perspective of a tourist, but foir the second and third trips I brought along some larger-than-life personalities, Bongo van Latte and Streev Greebling. Third world or no third world, we're gonna party! Wittily written, well designed, and illustrated with photographs and artwork.< Less

More > Birgunj, Lalitpur, and Pokhara. Independence: In 1768 Prithvi Narayan Shah unified a number of states in the Kathmandu Valley under the Kingdom of Gorkha.

Public Holidays: Numerous holidays and religious festivals are observed in particular regions and by particular religions.

In fact, holidays may not be observed if religious authorities deem the date to be inauspicious for a specific year.< Less

El día que me convertí en indio By Daniel San Martín
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Un relato magnífico que trasmite el enjambre de sensaciones de modo maravilloso: «Hay tal saturación sonora, visual y olfativa en una sola calle de Paharganj que mis sentidos... More > quedan sobrepasados. El entorno se vuelve imposible de procesar y tan sólo reconocer el callejón/pasillo donde queda el hotel es bastante difícil el primer día... y un poco difícil el segundo, porque las impresiones sobre un mismo lugar van cambiando con el pasar de las horas: mis ojos ven por primera vez cosas que mi cerebro (aturdido) sabe que también estaban ahí anteriormente.» «El tránsito es un organismo vivo formado por triciclos, motos, autos, personas a pie, animales sueltos o arrastrando carros, carros más chicos empujados por hombres, objetos interponiéndose y, en las grandes avenidas, ómnibus. Las veredas no son para caminar sino para alguna otra cosa, a saber: exponer mercadería, cocinar, sentarse, dormir, coser ropa, afeitar al prójimo y, a veces, para dejarlas libres; pero difícilmente se las camine.»< Less
