12/15 04:07 @jon7b Discouraged but allowed. We could also just all pay for our own lunches, etc. but it's actually just a small part of the budget. #
12/15 03:47 @MienHPham Last night I was blown away by a girl waxing nostalgic about a counterculture in one country arising from war in her home country #
12/15 02:37 @TylerWatts @caligarn @barcampsaigon Actually @dynamicscholar was planning one in conjunction w/ BarCamp, then our plans faltered. Restart? #
12/15 00:35 Introspecting #barcampsaigon Winter 2011. Barcamping is easy and 3 other ideas: #
12/14 01:28 @caligarn Yes. I'm reporting you -right now- #
12/14 01:25 @saigonsean I am against waterboarding because it isn't considered torture. Prefer more recognized forms, like Vietnamese @home karaoke #
12/14 00:32 @saigonsean Twitter (or a 3rd party) could warn you before you tweeted about keywords that would attract spammers... or just kill spammers #
12/14 00:02 @natalie470 @caligarn @Vietnam720 Don't worry. Soon spammers will discover you and you will get a new spam follower every day! #
12/13 23:45 @fisheggtree An idea.. create a forum for posting crowdsourced translations of deserving Vietnamese news articles (and vice versa) #
12/13 23:39 What's wrong with an SUV honking at a wheelchair to get out of the way? #
12/13 01:46 In hindsight, my favorite part of #BarCampSaigon was hundreds of people QUEUEING to register #
12/12 09:36 Swoon. RT @barijoe: My wife knows the difference between a Klingon Bird Of Prey and a Romulan Warbird #
12/10 18:24 Heading to RMIT for #BarCampSaigon on this crispy morning #
12/10 04:29 Late Reminder: #BarCampSaigon preparty at 90 Bui Vien, D1 tonight. All are welcome. I'm there from 7pm. #
12/10 03:11 We need a stamp to stamp lunch vouchers for BarCamp. anyone have one to lend? #
12/09 12:25 Not actually a headline from The Onio: 'California Cuts Budget Transparency Website From Budget' #
12/09 12:15 Law enforcement via example,right model for VN? RT @tuoitrenewsvn: China sentences woman to death in tainted milk case #
12/09 03:59 Something like 2.5 days without a proper cigarette. I might yell at you. #

11/30 10:43 'Like', retweet is a crime RT @RichardBarrow: Foreign Tourists warned they could be arrested for lese majeste #
11/29 01:26 @barijoe Any new Miyazaki film would be good. I always thought Nausicaa was already an allegory to the awesome power of splitting atoms #
11/28 07:26 Ken Schwaber is going over scrum with us over Skype. Pretty cool! #
11/28 02:45 @saigonnezumi What exactly are we doing? Volunteering to organize an event that benefits the local community? Shame on us. #
11/28 02:42 @playingwithsid If @barcampSaigon became Mozilla Reps, there would be outrage in the Twitter community for siding with one browser :) #
11/28 02:34 @saigonnezumi All of a sudden you're throwing out accusations that simply aren't true. Half of organizers came from open request at last BC #
11/27 07:36 @exposilver Thanks for the tip. Ended up at a no-name place near me called Kim Thuy and got it replaced for a good price, $36 #
11/27 03:51 Tricky people. Putting salt in the salt shaker leaving me with a handful of salt. #onlyinvietnam #
11/26 06:51 A few days late and sans turkey, still thankful to be celebrating #
11/25 04:47 Any shops in Saigon that fix Macbook Pro power adapters/cables? Regular shops on NTMK now only replace - for over 2 million! #

11/23 03:03 RT @AsCorrespondent: Bombs defused near Philippine massacre site on 2nd anniversity of atrocity. Tensions high. #
11/22 02:08 @caligarn Both China and Japan want to create SEA rail infrastructure. But this is freight rail. Japan wants to build passenger w/in VN #

11/16 06:07 @jobnomade There is a slight chance Dries will come here for the next FOSSASIA! Wanna check out Drupal community in India. Yes to DrupalCamp #
11/16 05:26 @saigonnezumi @jkthng I've long thought about having a mini DrupalCamp at BarCampSaigon, but need to focus on just BC now. FOSSAsia too. #
11/14 09:15 @Vietnam720 I mean thanks BEN :-) #
11/14 09:15 @Vietnam720 Haha! Thanks Be :-) #
11/14 08:28 @caligarn Honestly, I thought you did a fine job emceeing in Vietnamese. Better than my emceeing at a wedding on Saturday in English! #
11/14 05:56 @caligarn Why didn't you join a team with a good idea and MC their presentation? #
11/14 03:33 Not opposed to this in areas: As of 11 December 2008, every street corner in Johannesburg central is under high-tech CCTV surveillance #
11/14 03:24 @saigonnezumi Yes, we have Boost with Drupal. What are you doing? #
11/14 03:23 I'd like to thank this past weekend's sponsor, Ibuprofen, for making it bearable #
11/14 00:58 @saigonnezumi Yes, I run Drupal on OpenBSD and various Linux (and OSX), Apache, and Nginx. Why? #
11/14 00:57 Simple but interesting idea from Hacka2thon: all upcoming local events (or perhaps sales?) on a map: (test with 48104) #
11/13 04:15 RIP My yellow parakeet. Even after being rescued, you were never a very cheerful one. #
11/13 03:32 @ericburdette Was in Can Tho for a wedding. Nice that it only takes 3 hours to get there! #
11/11 06:07 I think most of Can Tho City is under water right now. Traffic jams everywhere #

11/06 03:55 @ChristophK2003 Still at the camp but it's taking a really long time to judge each submission. A lot of groups competing. #
11/06 03:52 TIL that the game Go in Vietnamese is 'Co vay'. They have a club that plays at Bach Khoa University. #
11/05 11:26 Hosting my team for Saigon MobileDevCamp hackathon tonight at my house, hoping to have an app running by noon. Social, Mobile, Local. #
11/04 23:23 At Bach Khoa University for MobileDevCamp #
11/04 03:23 @dynamicscholar Haha, those were direct quotes from @tuoitrenews and still not sure if it was subtle, yet deliberate Engrish. #
11/04 03:03 @dynamicscholar Vietnamese people prefer fat, older dong, which is not so bad once you peel back the skin and wash off the fishy smell #
11/04 03:00 So who thinks there will be a Steve Jobs movie next year? #

11/03 09:25 I have a question. RT @tuoitrenewsvn: Truck hits three bikes, two women die #
11/02 05:44 @caligarn Quality of orgasms over quantity. Clearly, we can test both. (I see you've changed your avatar for the 1923438th time) #
11/02 05:14 @nguyenhimself @dynamicscholar It will be a lot of tedious work, but I'm willing to take it on. In the name of advancing science. #
11/02 04:12 "Study says a woman's walk reflects her vaginal orgasmic history" - Not sure what to make of this. May need to do further research on my own #
10/31 05:52 @dynamicscholar Any website can be attractive on the frontend. Drupal is truly beautiful on the inside which you can't see w/o admin account #
10/31 05:51 @dynamicscholar Some case studies: And list of 10 Drupal sites: #
10/31 05:07 @dynamicscholar What kind of design do you mean? Graphic design / Drupal theme? Or examples of fully developed Drupal sites? #
10/30 04:26 @dynamicscholar The charm is there, floating in the water. My street is usually passable, and I have escape routes. #
10/30 02:06 @dynamicscholar Huynh Tan Phat? You made the news! So did my hood. #
10/29 05:59 RT @mybigfatface: Today I was called a cheap dog pussy by a tuk tuk driver. #onlyincambodia #
10/29 05:28 @SaigonSean Never? Vietnamese people seem quite content to transport themselves through #poowater (ask @dynamicscholar) #
10/29 03:04 Saigon has some 100 km of canals. Instead of taking advantage of it for transportation or tourism, it's a toilet and trashbin for neighbors #
10/28 05:14 @caligarn Are they? They're in tune with Japan's mobile consumers: got adoption of 3G, NFC, smart cards, QR codes. Think mobile, not web. #
10/28 04:43 I want a pair of these gloves, built into my motorbike: #
10/28 04:25 Idea: Local network appliance that mirrors Google Apps and cloud storage for quicker, offline access. Think Git for all your work. #
10/28 04:07 @peoplewithideas Taking over a domain name is not too hard w/ a bit of social engineering. Quite hard to lose domains by lapsed renewal now #

10/13 12:21 Some days you struggle to remember a word. Today that word was "calque": borrowing a foreign word-phrase, by translating it word for word. #

10/12 10:25 Steve Jobs was the reason Apple products were good. If you believe this is true then you should not plan to buy any future Apple products. #

10/10 10:49 @PedroInSaigon If we simply correlate income/car ownership with intelligence then Americans are geniuses, Vietnamese are retards #
10/10 10:47 @VLStudies I think the ministry should clearly signal high but stable future oil prices, subsidize food input fuels and public transit #
10/10 10:38 @PedroInSaigon Having a car can mean being a driver (company car or for a family), being somebody's wife/mistress, being a son. Ability? #
10/10 05:34 @PedroInSaigon @ericburdette I'd say having a car in Saigon is more correlated to family connections than ability to honestly earn money #
10/09 11:56 Saigon temperature updates really only need 3 values: use a/c, use fan, turn off fan #
