8/31 17:04 RT @peter_k440: *BREAKING NEWS* Gottfried from piratebay apprehended by Interpol at an apartment above Cadillac bar in PhnomPenh cambodia #
8/31 9:01 @rockportrait Haha. Good idea. Let me spend the next few hours trying to find/invent a time machine. All or nothing. #
8/31 6:45 ...but I haven't started a single slide yet or even installed the tools I plan to talk about. Anyone want to give me ideas? :-) #
8/31 6:44 In 4 hours I'll give a presentation on openness in web with state of the art tools and how the Internet has become malleable for designers. #
8/30 17:25 @dynamicscholar Assume real Coke is normalized to some standards even here. If imported & American then it's back to sucking down HFCS so.. #
8/30 17:21 @TravelinNatural The restaurant in Chua Vinh Nghiem pagoda on Nam Ky Khoi Nghia or Hoa Khai on Nguyen Cu Trinh. Hoa Dang is too busy. #
8/30 17:00 Bout time! android RT @ericburdette: Awesome. @Swiftkey has started testing of their Vietnamese keyboard. Can't wait til the release #
8/30 10:11 Biohazards on bikes. That's how Vietnam rolls. zombies saigon http://instagr.am/p/O8zOQ4MXiS/ #
8/30 9:33 With all these news reports about Vietnamese coffee being made of soy I've gone back to consuming safe and healthy drinks like Coca-Cola #
8/30 9:32 @dynamicscholar I haven't been to one in D4. That may just be a vegetarian restaurant or it may have a store too. Maybe @PedroInSaigon knows #
8/30 9:22 @dynamicscholar Off the top of my head, Au Lac also has small vegan grocery stores for their products. #
8/30 9:08 @caligarn @dynamicscholar Specifically targeting folks who'd want to improve their enlightenment odds. Meditation can just be stress relief #
8/30 8:59 Trello is NOT a bug-tracking system and it will resent you for trying to turn it into one. Unless your web project only has 5 bugs total. #
8/30 8:56 @dynamicscholar @caligarn Wait, I'm charlatan for using the E word?? I didn't say "from an enlightened person's perspective"! #
8/30 8:55 @dynamicscholar I don't think I've seen it there but a lot of vegetarian restaurants sell supplies. A few vegan grocery stores around too. #
8/30 7:37 Leap Motion, a small, $70 gesture control system that has captivated my imagination about the future of UI technology: http://goo.gl/6IS97 #
8/30 7:36 @SamuelMaruta ...or chocolate? :-) But sadly yes soon there will no longer be any endangered species alive to torture and eat :-( #
8/30 7:27 @dynamicscholar LOL if you really do want to eat vegetarian in Saigon (to avoid sketchy meat) here's a map I made: http://www.saigonist.com/b/vegetarian-week-vietnam #
8/30 7:24 @sonnylebythebay There are sections of canals in Saigon where trash tends to collect that look like that. Only difference is in scale. #
8/30 5:49 Vietnamese: famous for 2 things: pho and torturing, mutilating, and eating endangered animals: http://bit.ly/SW0x2i #
8/30 5:34 RT @sonnylebythebay: Want to see how dirty is the dirtiest river in the world? Pix of Indonesia Citarum River http://bit.ly/PRb6Rp #
8/30 4:49 @dylanduong I'm planning on doing stuff in the Twitter data mining space. Let me know if you have ideas. Entity and sentiment extraction. #
8/30 4:36 "Innovative thinking from low-cost countries (esp. India) combined with rapid action can benefit rich country companies disproportionately." #
8/29 10:30 @buunguyen Care to name and shame these crowd testing sites? Any better than just using Mechanical Turk? #
8/29 9:14 @caligarn Haha, cheers buddy! #
8/29 7:30 @deonartsy You're right, according to media (including photos with hot PR girls) and witnesses. I can't wait, but trains are not enough! #
8/28 8:41 @jon7b It appears there's a black market for empty SIMs which can send 100s of SMSs before phone company detects the abuse. Rinse, repeat. #
8/28 8:35 @NBNQ Not that any spam SMS is ok but ones that wake you up in the middle of the night are especially evil. We consumers need protection. #
8/28 8:13 1) Estimates of software tasks are inherently unreliable 2) Benefits of estimates are outweighed by the time required to make them. Discuss. #
8/28 8:00 @ducthuan89dl So phone companies should fix this loophole, consumers should punish spammers, govt should punish who registered the SIM #
8/28 7:33 Vietnam's first metro rail (subway) is supposed to begin construction in Saigon today. #
8/28 6:31 @laidbackfreak The outcome seems obvious right? Why authorities aren't doing more (less cars) to prevent the inevitable... kafkaesque #
8/28 5:50 Just imagine a semi-busy yet smoothly flowing traffic circle in Saigon with bikes replaced by cars. dystopian #
8/28 4:06 @dynamicscholar Ah. Well, I do have this Magic Mouse I hardly used if you want. We can always work something out later. #
8/27 17:40 @nguyenhimself Le Pub serves poutine but it's not great. Have seen it on menus at other restaurants too though #
8/27 9:26 Mi-Two runs Jelly Bean on 1.5Ghz quad core Snapdragon RT @CoachLeaders: Xiaomi reveals the fastest Android phone ever http://buff.ly/RjUpmC #
8/27 8:20 @ducthuan89dl Do you ever receive SMS spam from the same # more than once? I think they use disposable phone numbers, but the website's same #
8/27 8:13 @dynamicscholar Sweet. :-) Either option works. #
8/27 7:59 What can we do to destroy/annoy SMS spammers like 0938289832, 01265958459, 01249004821, or 01249004764 promoting websites? #
8/27 6:23 @dynamicscholar I have a MacBook Pro with Mini DisplayPort (not DVI) which I want to convert to VGA. #
8/27 2:42 @dynamicscholar I might have a Magic Mouse I could trade! #
8/26 13:22 Nha Hang 666 - The Restaurant of the Beast saigon vietnam http://instagr.am/p/Oy2IVTsXhV/ #
8/26 13:18 @jon7b Haha I wish I could retweet that but you protect your tweets. Is this a real meme? armstrong #
8/26 12:08 @dynamicscholar @caligarn @nguyenhimself Not any popular stores I know of. If you find a display port to VGA adapter < $25 let me know #
8/26 11:01 @Khoi_Le There is already a long list of storm names to be used, then they just pick the next name alphabetically #
8/26 7:48 @PedroInSaigon I've hacked on Moodle but find the codebase immature. What are requirements? Content management frameworks (Drupal) flexible #
8/26 5:05 BREAKING: Walking on moon leads to high mortality years later #
8/25 1:45 I have to say @Vimeo's developers and/or network engineers suck. Don't use if you expect videos to be watched in Asia. YouTube wins. #
8/24 12:27 TIL when you open a farm you should sacrifice a chicken and drink beers to garner favor (fruitful crops) from local god-spirits #
8/24 7:31 @caligarn "Thong cam" is one of the first things we learn in "Cultural Relativism 101" #
8/24 7:30 @lienh If a financial meltdown is inevitable in Vietnam (NPLs greater than publicized, etc.) then shift blame from own incompetence to Kien #
8/24 4:34 @CoachLeaders I've saved money on international flights by using a travel agent that knew of special deals. In the end, you can say no. #
8/24 4:10 I wonder if Vietnam is willfully trying to collapse its already weak banking system then blame it on the arrest of ACB's Bau Kien #
8/23 14:53 RT @layered: Interesting variation in foreign currency 3-month bank deposit rates in VN: USD 2% CAD 1.3% Euro 3.4% AUD 4% #
8/23 7:58 @chrisfharvey Agreed, voter fraud is a problem. Solution:"Voters required to correctly guess the number the voting inspector is thinking of" #
8/23 7:17 RT @TheOnion: Ohio: Voters must present valid Republican Party membership card http://onion.com/NI1Aze ControversialLaws #
8/23 4:25 Anyone in Vietnam want to tackle Stripe's CTF (capture the flag) as a team? https://t.co/u58ogSaS hacktheweb #
8/23 4:14 @christineptran Vietnam's biggest music sites (all pirating music) just agreed w/ the industry to sell songs for 1000VND (5 cents) apiece. #

8/22 9:37 @billbaren Has your Twitter account been hacked? That last tweet sounded awfully like spam #
8/22 6:42 @rockportrait Now people play online en masse. MMORPGs. No more 20-sided die. #
8/22 6:02 Yea boyii Drupal is awesome because it has a D&D Character Generator module: http://drupal.org/project/dnd_character_generator #
8/22 6:00 @deonartsy Curitiba, Brazil is the classic case for BRT. Nearer to here is Jakarta's, which was my first time. Mexico City Metrobus too. #
8/21 17:07 @deonartsy @NextAmCity I'm a big fan of BRT/busways and I really think it's what Saigon needs to build to complement any metro rail system #
8/21 15:56 @rockportrait Unfortunately iPhone only comes in one price: status symbol. Any phone shop should carry it but cheapest I saw was Pico Hanoi #
8/21 13:41 @chrisfharvey Ah, but these mere anecdotes don't compare to months - nay - years of rigorous naked sleep research. #
8/21 13:37 @shilkytouch As the world faces global warming and global air-conditioning it's a hot field of research to enter. No pay. Citizen science yo #
8/21 13:32 @rockportrait It's a functional Android device, or a toy for hacking, but don't get any hopes up as an iPhone replacement #
8/21 10:05 "The comfortable temperature for sleeping naked is around 84F if a fan is on" - Japanese naked sleeping temperature researcher #
8/21 6:23 @TylerWatts http://www.diathan.vn. Do you have turntables? Happy birthday btw! #
8/21 6:10 There's a new online vinyl record store in Vietnam selling mainstream classics and modern from ~500k VND up. But it's not for DJs. #
8/21 5:42 When religion seeks money.. RT @AsCorrespondent: Thai "Buddhist" cult claims to know afterlife of Steve Jobs http://bit.ly/PzfILz Thailand #
8/21 4:15 @nguyenhimself Just answered @jon7b the same question: Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300 #
8/21 3:32 @jon7b Samsung Galaxy Pocket S5300, a small but feature-complete Android smartphone running Gingerbread. But not for me :) #
8/21 3:29 @nguyenhimself Sub-$100 as in an Android device (phone) costing less than $100. Straight up competing w/ lower end Nokia price points #
8/20 11:10 @sonnylebythebay I think corruption is by default for any government. Democracy despite imperfections at least introduces accountability #
8/20 11:07 @paddytan What further bad news are you expecting to drop the stock price? I expect click fraud, but poor mobile monetization isn't new #
8/20 10:47 I just received delivery of an order for a sub-$100 Android device via Vietnamese ecommerce. Is this the future? #
8/19 12:44 @LauraGeneOnline Haha you mean Gangnam or the remix part, which I kind of improvised? I hope you've heard (and seen) the original by Psy #
8/19 9:26 Psy - Gangnam Style (#DuMa Nuoc Mam Viet Kieu remix): http://goo.gl/cpjQv #
8/19 5:30 On the fence about using Facebook comment widget on sites (when most visitors to the site also use Facebook) #
8/19 5:21 @caligarn @nguyenhimself IdeaTorrent as well as Ubuntu's website itself are built on Drupal #
8/19 5:19 @caligarn @jon7b Easiest would be to use a ready-made open source script for that purpose. But constructing w/ Drupal would be more flexible #
8/19 5:03 @MienHPham Tell her Ann Arbor is cooler ;-) But East Lansing has a really nice concrete skate park #
8/18 13:44 @MienHPham Michigan is full of peaceful and charming towns and cities. :-) I noticed a previous post about the West Coast of Michigan #
8/18 12:04 @jon7b Friends are nuts. I think it has something to do with decreasing rent by being married, but mostly for fun! #
8/18 11:06 Stops mosquito bite itch quick: RT @careyz: I want one ! RT @BoingBoing: Cheap-looking bug-bite zapper actually works http://dlvr.it/21MLg7 #
8/18 10:41 Waiting for a sham wedding between an American and Vietnamese to begin, to be followed by a divorce party #
8/18 9:09 Citizen science, big government data, seafarming, microtask crowdsourcing. I'm stuck in the wrong place at the wrong time. #
8/18 8:18 Unfortunately, bio-diesel conversions in Vietnam are rare b/c motorbike engines rely on gasoline, used veggie oil is burnt to a crisp #
8/18 6:06 @ShaneinSaigon Wow, crazy. Did you just laugh in their faces? #
8/18 5:45 RT @walterm: The most common Buddhist sutras in Vietnam http://goo.gl/qtb0x #

8/15 12:29 @joannayeoml Open Chrome's task manager, sort tabs by memory size, kill w/ some prejudice. Flash/Shockwave can hog memory quickly w/ YouTube #
8/15 11:46 Potentially awesome for testing out available cloud hosting providers & CDNs in random countries like VN: http://cloudharmony.com/speedtest #
8/15 9:28 @nguyenhimself @jon7b I'm happy to connect with more people. For marketers what matters more? Artificial followings don't help though. #
8/15 8:04 Browser zooming leads to pixel rounding. Chrome vs Firefox. Anyone deal with this or have best practices? Just let sites break when zoomed? #
8/15 7:47 RT @sonnylebythebay: China finishes railway linking ASEAN http://bit.ly/NzeHmW Pan-Asia Railway network runs from Yunnan to Singapore. #
8/15 6:56 @caligarn @WAYFUNBAA @nguyenhimself What are the symptoms? Maybe you made it on a sensitive bloggers list and gov hackers target you now #
8/15 6:53 @jon7b Wow, you block them? I periodically cull, and recently wrote a script to implement an ignore list for when people tweet too much ;) #
8/15 6:51 @fisheggtree I agree, poor quality followers = spambots. Anyone who's "following" 10k people is actually following 0. #
8/15 6:02 Do most people follow-back new followers? Why would you follow strangers with 1000s of followers who follow 1000s and will just ignore you? #
8/15 3:51 @PedroInSaigon @fisheggtree Conspiracy theory, voodoo magic, or verifiable routing changes to network topology. Take your pick. #
8/14 16:34 @fisheggtree Vietnam is interesting in that it's one of few countries with 2 large expat population cities, not just the capital city #
8/14 15:06 @chrisfharvey Sweet! Let's shoot for next week. Maybe continue where your last gathering left off. #
8/14 15:05 @jon7b Yup, that's the place. Lunch set for 65k VND is more reasonable than their dinner prices. When are you back? #
8/14 15:04 @PedroInSaigon @fisheggtree If not just lag, that would be on your ISP, not any cable cut. I've been fine with Facebook on FPT and Viettel. #
8/14 14:02 @fisheggtree The Internet has protocols for routing around damaged links & that happened. No sites were offline. Rerouted traffic just slow. #
8/14 7:15 @PedroInSaigon @dynamicscholar @fisheggtree Who's your ISP, Peter? FPT is f*d but Facebook still ok. Any Vnese divers would surely drown! #
8/14 7:08 @laidbackfreak I think 'bumbling idiots' is the more obvious explanation by Occam's Razor ;) It could've been more coordinated, effective #
8/14 7:02 @chrisfharvey No idea when, or whether it was rogue fishermen again. For now you can find cafes with VNPT/Viettel which may be faster.. #
8/14 5:13 @fisheggtree Internet in Vietnam is not temporarily offline nor are there any signs that it is targeted censorship of any sort #
8/14 2:35 "In Cambodia, no one wants to be caged, but they got into the cage by themselves" - Cambodian police on delusional PETA protestors at KFC #
8/14 0:38 The undersea Asia-America Gateway (AAG) cable which connects Vietnam to Hong Kong has been cut again, affecting international internet speed #
8/13 10:05 So disappointed that Khoi Thom's "rice milk drink" is not horchata that I might just cry. But who wants to join me for Taco Thursdays? #
8/13 9:20 Sounds like there's a pretty widespread (unplanned) power outage in District 1 #
8/13 8:07 @caligarn $50 for a banner on a top Vietnam news site, definitely. But what events website has traffic to justify that in this market? #
8/13 7:08 @jon7b @caligarn @TylerWatts But then tiny countries luckily winning 1 medal look great, despite not being a generally true trend #

8/13 6:14 @TravelinNatural Facebook is where people post their own events and share with groups, AnyArena for nightlife and some regular events #
8/13 5:03 BREAKING NEWS: "Tourists ripped off by vendors in Hanoi" http://www.tuoitrenews.vn/cmlink/tuoitrenews/lifestyle/tourists-ripped-off-by-vendors-in-hanoi-s-old-quarter-1.82954 #
8/13 4:17 @caligarn @TylerWatts A competition between nations with different resources and priorities, yes, but how is it unfair? #
8/13 4:12 @caligarn Nope. I was just talking about the London 2012 Olympics. No fun running against the dead. But Russia is no zombie.. #
8/13 3:32 @caligarn Haha I think the Soviet Union loses by ceasing to exist. Or do you mean Russia? olympics winning #
8/13 3:22 So I heard America won the Olympics. #
8/13 2:59 Cultural relativism! RT @TheEconomist: Pfizer seems to have been violating a US law that criminalises bribery abroad http://econ.st/QseAYT #

8/11 3:53 @jon7b Lol. Bet Twitter thinks you're bicurious now too. Or a Martian. We could do better ourselves. #
8/11 3:39 @TravelinNatural Great to hear! If you have any comments to add please let me know and I'll update the map #
8/11 3:38 @TheGalvanic Saigon Pinoys would know about Catholic churches. I'm not sure about Protestant. Maybe @tamkaizen #
8/11 2:55 @cnualart Are you talking about Future Living Studio? #
8/11 2:53 RT @grapealope: We spend 80% of healthcare costs on the last year of life. Technology can play a huge role here. @daniel_kraft medhack #

8/11 2:00 @caligarn Haha actually I tried to login to the live stream last night but it was over for the day. Probably view recordings later. #
8/10 11:40 @TylerWatts Dude! You know the place. Pitched up vocals, breaks, cheesy pop remixed, the works. #
8/10 11:17 I just rode my bike past a cafe. It was playing happy hard core for all street goers to hear. In Saigon, anything is possible. #
8/10 4:51 @caligarn WTF, they're just copying a set of pictures from the artist from an old Flavorpill article and passing it off as original #
8/10 3:24 @caligarn What do you think? The original paper is interesting, looks kosher, but called for further testing. Science writing often distorts #
8/9 7:04 @TylerWatts @jon7b Is it any less creepy when a 55 year old calls a 25 year old "em"? Maybe it's not creepy in the V eyes... #
8/9 6:50 @jon7b Haha, well at least Twitter thinks you're human, right? #
8/9 6:50 @caligarn @manandultraman 99% believe in ghosts, see fortune-tellers, burn votive dollars, just don't belong to Unified Buddhist Church #
8/9 6:26 Sigh. Twitter's "similar to you" lists 3 accounts. 2 are robots. 1 is a school. #
8/9 6:17 RT @manandultraman: 23% fewer Vietnamese claim to be religious now than in 2005-the biggest decline in new global poll. http://ht.ly/cQocP #
8/9 6:01 @caligarn Looks like they just use software to translate the Reddit homepage, then turn all links into shitty ads #
8/9 5:58 @caligarn I don't think http://reddit.com.vi.mk.gd is the Vietnamese Reddit not affiliated with Reddit in any way. A scam actually. #
8/9 4:30 Doctors obviously live differently from normal folks. They also die different, w/ realer expectations: http://goo.gl/QV3hj zen #
8/8 13:17 @rockportrait Yup, American. I defy some people's stereotypes of Asian. I'd suggest people cling less to (incorrect) racial stereotypes. #

8/8 5:09 @rockportrait @nbnq Yea, could depend on context, level of exposure to oversea Asians. If my accent isn't unmistakably US, I need to go home #
8/8 4:58 @shilkytouch LOL it's cool we can still be friends on Twitter where it's okay to be ugly #
8/8 4:43 @CotterVN Nice. Ever think about having one custom fitted for you? Regular bamboo bikes are so much cheaper.. #
8/8 3:35 "Having physically attractive Facebook friends make you seem more socially attractive." Apologies to any ugly people I just unfriended. #
8/8 3:16 Vietnam has 2 v.rare species of bamboo good for construction. 30 shops worldwide make bamboo bikes, racing bikes only in VN #

8/7 5:43 @nguyenhimself How about in Terminal? Space means ' ' there :) Shift-Fn-up/down is F'n ridiculous. Bad Apple design. #
8/7 5:32 @NBNQ J/k.. I'm embarrassed for them, for assuming Asian people can't natively speak English. Honest compliment but from a closed mind. #
8/7 4:45 @NBNQ From time to time, white people compliment me on my English speaking abilities. Not sure whether to be proud or embarrassed #

8/6 5:09 I never realized how much non-Americans supported and followed NASA. We should turn it into a giant Kickstarter project. #
8/5 14:38 @kingceejay Isn't it crazy? Vietnam's no less corrupt. You could make a whole movie about 1 case. Like Face/Off w/ John Travolta. #
8/5 14:33 @deonartsy That's what I fear. No reason to think Vietnam is above that, esp. the old legal system. BTW nice meeting you the other night! #

8/4 5:50 It seems @twitter has stopped notifying me of @mentions :( Anyone else stop receiving emails and updates in apps? #
8/4 5:18 @dnghia Yup. The thing is I use at least 3 Twitter clients, so need a solution that applies across my account. I did it via lists. #
8/4 4:50 @CotterVN Oh, interesting. They have some unique content then. Thanks for the tip! #
8/4 4:48 @jon7b It's a ruby gem called t which uses the normal Twitter API. Command line only, not browser - uses local. I wrap it with shell script. #
8/4 4:37 @jon7b Haha thanks for the correction, and for the honorable mention @kingceejay @Vietnam720 @nguyenhimself @tamkaizen #
8/3 16:46 @jonhoff Now I just tell people to post to my expat forum for asking most questions. Many inconsiderate requests. #
8/3 9:19 @tamkaizen Give me my money #
8/3 7:48 @tropixblue At any given moment, half of Americans deeply disagree with their govt's foreign policy. But politicos balance it well enough #
8/3 7:41 @TylerWatts This, despite the myspace url, is amazing. Mutual rainbow vomiting by medieval Jews. Adventure time. #
8/3 7:38 I have created an ignore function for Twitter. Massively cuts down my timeline without having to unfollow noisy friends. evillaugh #
8/3 7:06 @NBNQ It's easier to ask forgiveness than to ask for permission #
8/3 6:55 @cottervn Connect experts? Is there a social component not related to hiring, or is this some shadowy headhunting? Maybe they're just niche #
8/3 6:54 @bentrein For me, it's about writing tools to manage my Twitter lists. But security? It uses OAuth like other Twitter apps. #
8/3 5:26 This was tweeted using the t ruby gem from the command line #
8/3 3:30 Does anybody here use http://Anphabe.com? Is there really a need for anything besides LinkedIn (and maybe VietnamWorks + headhunters)? #
8/3 2:30 I'm excited about the prospects of crowdfunded gaming hardware makers pushing virtual reality tech w/ Oculus: http://goo.gl/rVrME #

8/2 23:52 @Vietnam720 NCC Group swoops for Matasano Security in £8.4m deal: http://goo.gl/Y2YrO #
8/2 23:15 Stoked to hear former colleague tptacek's Matasano acquisition (also where Vietnamese hacker thaidn went) for $13m #
8/2 22:54 @emporio Are you really filling out surveys for cash or did your Twitter account get hacked? #
8/2 14:51 @xxdesmus @CloudFlare I've added a 2nd discussion with "ATTN Justin" in the title. Hope it helps. #
8/2 14:36 @xxdesmus @CloudFlare Since http://saigonist.com is paused, traceroute to it now would be directly to my server not CloudFlare's. #
8/2 14:36 @tomosaigon @CloudFlare Since http://saigonist.com is paused, traceroute to it now would be directly to my server not CloudFlare's. #
8/2 14:35 @xxdesmus @CloudFlare I've paused it, but it's http://saigonist.com. http://cloudflare.com DNS was not resolving, so unable to traceroute. #
8/2 14:16 @xxdesmus @CloudFlare I've resolved it by pausing service. Can't traceroute because DNS fails. Incl. http://cloudflare.com itself. #
8/2 13:35 In English sarcasm adds a certain tone to one's voice which should be marked by punctuation but isn't. Does sarcasm affect tonal languages? #
8/2 12:34 Although their system status shows no current outages, @CloudFlare is currently down for me from Vietnam (Singapore DC), not USA #
8/2 11:10 Suddenly, Barcamp Saigon is a full time job #
8/1 19:26 Especially late night RT @CobraTran: The less you pay for Vietnamese food, the better it tastes. wordsofwisdom #
8/1 17:30 @tamkaizen Funny, I told that to your girlfriend earlier today #
8/1 17:18 Just pulled over for no reason in District 1. Explained to me in English that after midnight they want to check licenses. phishing #
8/1 14:09 @ianblakeslee Still in Saigon. Send him my way. Can get in touch either on Twitter or via my blog. #
8/1 11:22 RT @wired: BMW's Electric Scooter Blends Eco Cred With Combustion Performance http://bit.ly/Qk2VyO #
8/1 6:57 @ChrisInCambo LOL I hope you're right. $0 = 3D printers ubiquitous enough in the region to print free phones perhaps? No patent law worries #
8/1 2:55 Anyone care to guess the mid-term future global market share of Android in smartphones? Future average smartphone price? #
