To become part of history

I was taught that history was constantly in the making and that each one of us was part of it. Sometimes I wish one day someone, generations ahead, would remember me. Perhaps having a child is part of this process. Gone are my childhood dreams of being a scientist, anthropologist or historian. I view legacy today in fully different terms.

Before I keep rambling, I just came upon an interesting project that will announce on 07-07-07 what the new seven wonders of the world are. I made my choice. You can make yours.

In death unpunished

Augusto Pinochet is dead. Unlike many who suffered under his iron fist for decades, he died peacefully in the company of his loved ones.

Despite a turmoil not unlike what Chileans are experiencing right now, I have come to the conclusion that even evil deserves acquittal, as long as there is repentance. But that’s probably my Catholic upbringing talking.

He is dead, and that’s all there is to say.

You can read more about it at BBC News.

Carlos’ Realm’s Birthday

Carlos' Realm's Birthday

It’s been another year since I started rambling on this spot.

The layout has changed since 2004. The design had been in place since 2001.

The green design was implemented around this time last year. Today, I introduce the current design, based loosely on the previous one, but mainly, a migration to WordPress. I got tired of Movable Type. I have also added a miniblog of what I’m reading right now, coutesy of Rob Miller. Time permitting, I will add my comments and reviews of these books. I’ve also added links to items on my Amazon Wish List.

Here’s to another year of Carlos’ Realm on the WWW.
