|Pinoy Book Project|
|Do you want to write a book, together with about a zillion others?|
|Our goal: To compile zany, useful, good stuff on Filipino culture, art, and literature.
|Our first ideas:
book title: Pinoy Stuff (alternative suggestions are welcome!)
chapters: - opening hit on the consciousness - any thoughts?
- FAQs - e.g. who is Epifanio de los Santos? (Pinoy trivia)
- The state of Philippine history (calling on Ambeth Ocampo?)
- The Filipino artist hall of fame (describing the greatests)
- Search for roots - contributions from those who looked for lost
family or loved ones (e.g. Charlie's story)
- Terms of engagement (Love, Pinoy style)
- Money matters (how Filipinos handle such things)
- Manias and Bubbles on the PSE (stories on how to invest)
- Philippine charities (where to give, and why)
- Classics - reading list for the literate Pinoy
- The color of skin (how we look at race)
- Hanep (glossary of cool Pinoy terms of the last 20 yrs.)
