2:46 Quakebook and Interview With Roberto De Vido

Have you heard about this yet?  2:46 Quakebook.  I hadn't either, until I just read my friend Grace's blog post over at liberal sprinkles.   

Blogger and Twitter guy, Our Man in Abiko  conceived the idea of pulling together an immediate book of over 300 stories from survivors of Japan's Earthquake/Tsunami disaster.  You can download a copy, or buy the book.  Please read all about it, and check out liberal sprinkles by CLICKING HERE.

Grace has interviewed Roberto De Vido, the guy who helped Our Man in Abiko get the book published.  There is a lot of background information on the project, and she did a wonderful job on this post.

To give her a well deserved shout-out, Grace has the neatest and most interesting things on her blog.  Her articles are very well researched, and Grace has been doing some other great interviews too.   Way to go, Grace!

If you miss a day, you miss a lot!  Don't miss out on the news ... Please click here to go to my home page and see what is happening in Mayberry today.

This just proves there is no such thing as an original thought. This morning I was thinking about Euan Craig who is a marvelous writer that lives in Japan and has an amazing blog. I was going to suggest he do exactly what has all ready been done. Not only am I not original, I am late.
I will definitely check that site. Thank you.

Hi Everybody ...

Glad you enjoyed this post. Patti, I have his blog on my sidebar under Helping our Japanese Friends. That is a coincidence, due to all the bloggers that could have been there. Grace found him too.
