07/06 03:04 Blackboard, the overpriced and much loathed school software, sold for $1.64 Billion. What an opportunity.. #
07/06 02:37 @caligarn There's some mandate for all civil servants and state owned enterprise employees to take the bus weekly tied to bonuses #
07/06 02:35 @jon7b Compressed natural gas-powered busses are already coming online #
07/05 16:24 Every few hours I check #bitcoin on IRC to see how much further BTC has fallen on MtGox as they slowly let everyone cash out #

07/05 03:23 What's wrong with this picture? #hanoi #
07/04 10:33 @kennedypj @saigonnezumi Cuz PHP is dumb. 5.3 introduced a lot of syntax changes, e.g. call-time pass-by-reference. Usually easy to fix.. #
07/04 04:56 @jobnomade Hear, hear! Vietnam needs Heroes and CSI: Saigon, maybe Cops too #
07/04 04:52 @betoneko Yup! Fox News is known for stretching the truth at the best of times, this time just lack of security and response/awareness #
07/04 03:45 @foxnewspolitics is reporting that Pres Obama has just been assassinated! @PedroInSaigon @betoneko #
07/04 03:18 Awesome RT @tomoakiyama: Lady Gaga on #Japanese talkshow: Outrageous outfit, pulls out candy from her head [PHOTO] #
07/04 03:01 @caligarn Google apps + Google+ + Google single sign-on? Getting there slowly... #
07/04 02:59 Also, know who has editorial control! RT @betoneko: Never trust a man who reads only one newspaper (or none) #
07/04 02:51 @veryvietnam A novel idea indeed.. a place to read books for free - let's give the idea a name. Maybe call it "library"... #
07/04 02:31 @jobnomade Local govt prefers paying small compensation to victims rather than for responding with prevention. #
07/04 02:25 @jobnomade Investigating crime isn't in job description for cops in VN. We need a new type of police, chartered to serve and protect #
07/03 07:26 @VietnamBlogs I don't know you/your business model or system, whereas that site clearly gets paid for spam; assumed mistaken association #
07/03 07:20 @tamkaizen The slopes of a pyramid are awfully slipperly. I'm sure some see opportunities in VN's lack of experience/history with MLMs #
07/03 07:10 @VietnamBlogs So it took only a cursory look for me to tell it was a made-for-Adsense site, if you need to tweak your automation then fine #
07/03 07:09 Expat pain relief in #Vietnam / (but today, naproxen out of stock in 4 pharmacies, codeine easy to find) #
07/03 07:00 @VietnamBlogs Lol, haha thanks and no worries... just keeping you on your toes! #
07/03 06:42 @VietnamBlogs Do you get paid to promote low quality / spam / copied sites? You should at least say it's advertising #
07/03 06:31 @betoneko @ericburdette Enlightened Ohioans have decided lots of beer + American football + history of rioting + GUNS is a good plan #
07/03 05:50 Where do casual games like Zynga / Mafiaville fit in Google+ or should they remain a Facebook plague, source of income? #
07/02 01:35 10s of thousands lose cash in collapsed pyramid scheme; MLMs still growing / #Vietnam #
07/02 01:12 @philip_arthur There's 'boiled egg' - white on the outside, yellow on the inside, not sure it applies though #
07/01 03:46 RT @hcmctoday: Tease an Australian by saying that you "think the South African accent is beautiful." I couldn't do it with a straight face. #
07/01 03:43 @ericburdette There are several free databases which map IP addresses to countries; better, paid ones like MaxMind have more granularity #
07/01 03:19 @caligarn Whoops, it's Dang Tat. I still saw the old cards with old addr, with some handwritten scratches maybe for the new location. Pro. #
07/01 03:14 @caligarn Friend says it's pre-Reunification Saigonese style; should be celebrated. Then again rich culture lead to the fall of South VN.. #
07/01 03:10 @caligarn Today was the 2nd time I first went to the Dung Tat location before finding out everyone's on TTT. Even cards give Dung Tat addr #

06/29 09:09 @LandonCarnie @scarlettran Need not be an expert to present, share experiences, even lead a roundtable/discussion at #barcampsaigon, #
06/29 08:20 @scarlettran Funny, I was just reading the #rmitvietnam chatter! A lot of activity, but w/o more prez notes tweeted I feel I'm missing out #
06/29 03:58 I have been listening to Google Music for awhile now. It is called YouTube and everyone else takes care of the uploading! #

06/28 18:24 @vietdlam Immigration problems at Vietnam's ports are bribes, bureaucracy, lack of queueing. What frame of reference makes that better? #
06/28 18:16 @vietdlam Check again, Vietnam isn't on that list of countries. US promotes tourism from Europe, rich Asian countries. #
06/28 17:26 @vietdlam Also, the US isn't paying millions of $$ to get visitors from VN to come, only to make it difficult once they do #
06/28 17:23 @vietdlam Perhaps it's unfair that VNese can't easily visit developed countries, but at least when they do they don't need to bribe the US #

06/22 10:58 @afieldofgrass @caligarn @realchristran @jobnomade Can't step outside w/o running into online marketing / SEO experts (w/o a year of exp.) #

06/21 00:18 @manandultraman Not so. Per capita is a bad target of measurement when Vietnam has 14x the pop. of Laos. Cheaper to make Laotian babies. #
06/20 05:17 @manandultraman "Per capita." Cambodia and Laos have tiny populations compared to Vietnam. #
06/20 05:15 @caligarn So I guess the Hong Kong movie industry doesn't count? #

06/07 05:41 @kennynguyenus But blogging against bribery, and pinpointing specific people, one is liable to be arrested or blocked. #

06/06 12:21 @tamkaizen I posed that same question a few months back, garnered no interest. @ipaidabribe #

06/03 03:37 "Made-in-Vietnam garbage classifying machine comes out" made me think "machine labels anything from VN as garbage", but is actually cool #
06/03 03:23 @jon7b I always :( a little when VNers use English names. Wish they'd choose cool names like Ice Thi or names from Decepticons #
06/02 06:44 Hanoi wants $120 BILLION to improve its appearance. How about $1B on reducing corruption and maybe we won't need another $119B #
06/02 04:16 There's even a secondary market in Vietnam to unload your unwanted Groupon clone vouchers which were hastily bought #
06/02 04:13 @tamkaizen There are at least 20 Groupon clones in Vietnam now and the biggest resort to rather shady business practices #
06/02 04:04 Sadly, @rackspace aren't opening a DC around VN any closer than HK which also won't have cloud services for awhile #
