This is an old one, but it’s finally great to see something where people don’t behave like dumbasses.
A fascinating look Hanoi and how the city seemingly avoided something that most cities around the world have experienced. One thing though that seems unanswered: What will happen to these buildings when a typhoon hits? Who will be responsible for picking up the pieces afterwards?
In Vietnam, the city of Hanoi is going through a population boom. It has grown by several million people in just a few decades, mostly due to migration from rural areas of the country. But unlike many other urban areas, it hasn’t ever developed slums. One reason is the region’s lack of regulation.
This was great. A perfect example of when fans stray over the line from a respectful “Oh, so how are things going on the new book?” to “Finish it already because we’re afraid you will die before you finish.”
I do have to wonder what do Robert Jordan fans think about it.
All in all though folks, if you have favorite writer just be supportive and do be a pestering douche bag about when they will provide your next installment of gratification. Overall George summed it up quite nicely.
Apparently George R.R. Martin is quite, quite tired of people worrying that he will never finish his fantasy magnum opus A Song of Ice and Fire. But can you really blame him?
