day 87. reflections of thailand
cost of living affordable.
if the kids in bangkok decide to put on a barcamp, i'll be there to help. i've discovered that thailand is very much a developing to be a jewel of south east asia. despite the one year old coup, open source and the geek community has a foot hold - thailand drupal, duocore, zickr, umbutu, and thai creative commons represent the rockin nature of our global conversation.
many thanks to sugree phatanapherom for cooking me dinner and let me stay at his house. sugree, can you tell your mother thanks for this morning's conversation!?! she kept talking to me in thai and i just nodded my head as if i understood. man, i can only guess what questions i answered. :P
...more to come later, but for now i'm off to Cambodia to interview the cats at the khmer software initiative.
as for a personal update, i feel fit and overfed but developed a sinus infection. i feel horrible that i haven't taken the time to hammer several blog posts and more horrible for the fact that i'm tied to a monstrosity of a video editing machine.
