Ayan Mahamoud: Somaliland: Host to One of the World's Most Remarkable Artistic Gatherings

Ayan Mahamoud: Somaliland: Host to One of the World's Most Remarkable Artistic Gatherings | World News | Scoop.it
It may not be as big as Edinburgh's summer festival or as long established as the now 25-year-old Hay event but the Hargeisa International Book Fair can lay claim to being one of the world's most remarkable artistic gatherings. For the annual Fair is attracting a growing number of authors and artists to the Horn of Africa - a region usually in the international news for famine, conflict and piracy rather than animated discussions about the arts.

Ty Findlow's insight:
I think this is a fantastic way to share books and get to know other authors. Authors can also get feedback from other authors to help improve their writing. They could also get some fantastic ideas for a new book. When think of authors giving others ideas you might of that as that would never happen. But you are wrong, this isn't for the World Series or the Super Bowl. There isn't competition in writing, so they could give ideas to others that are looking for ideas to write a new series to get published.

In building drones that kill people, the US has a couple-decade head start on China.
Ty Findlow's insight:

I think this could be a pretty good thing for the world. A lot of countries get products from china. This will save money but it could take away jobs. This could take away jobs from the people who deliver the packages.

I like this event because everyone can get together to eat seafood. Even though, I am not a big fan of seafood I still that this is good so everyone can make new friends. They can also learn things about themselves when they are meeting other people.
