230 - Papua New Guinea, the Linguistic Superpower



Funny that just a few days ago I was reading all this about Papua New Guinea in Guns, Germs and Steel. It sounds like such a crazy, fantastic place -- so tiny and yet teeming with all sorts of diversity. 

GG&S is on my "to read" list. Papua is also one of the few places left on earth where new species are still being discovered.
