“That’s the thing about space,” says Dinah MacQuarrie, a character in Neal Stephenson’s  “Seveneves.” "So many smart people are so interested in it that it’s difficult to come up with a really new idea.” A similar problem also applies to Stephenson’s new think-piece of a novel.

Business nerds, how is your Spanish? For this Argentine news story in La Nacion, I tried to make the connection between Lord of the Rings, D&D and the venture capital ideas of "unicorns" and "dragons." Hopefully nothing was lost in translation. http://www.lanacion.com.ar/1789148-sin-titulo
