    FYI, keep a watch out for ‘Easter Island: Children of the Moai‘ on Discovery. It’s an hour-long documentary exploring the history of the island. Much of it I already knew from reading Collapse, but it was great to put images with that knowledge.

    I was also very surprised to see how developed it has become, and their plans for the future.
