A REAL Miracle of Chile – Miners survive collapse

with 2 comments

Since returning from Chile a couple weeks ago, I’ve been assembling the project site for Miracle of Chile that questions Milton Friedman’s famous phrase. As part of the project, one may run through a maze that displays Flickr images shot by participants in Chile depicting what they consider to be the Miracle of Chile. Along side of the maze are Twitter entries for Miracle of Chile. It is through these entries that I learned that 33 miners were trapped on August 5th when a mine collapsed. It’s now been 17 days and it is reported that all 33 miners are alive! Uncle Milton, that’s a true miracle!
