Afterword

ThimphuTech was the first technology blog in Bhutan. We started writing it in 2009, just as broadband and mobile internet started to take off. (Although internet in Bhutan was launched in 1999, it was either super-slow or super-expensive, and was only used by a selected few).

In the blog, we wrote about technology and food, but also about plenty of other stuff. The blog became popular and influential in Bhutan. A companion bi-weekly column -- Ask Boaz -- was published for many years in the Kuensel, Bhutan's national newspaper. (The complete Kuensel columns are available as an ebook, Blogging with Dragons).

We stopped updating the blog when we left Bhutan in 2014, but the information within the posts can still prove useful, and thus we decided to keep it online.

We thank all our readers.
Tashi Delek,

ThimphuTech is back!

In 2008 we arrived in Bhutan. A lot was happening that year in the Kingdom: The first democratic elections, His Majesty's coronation, the centennial celebrations.

On the IT front things were also developing fast - a 3G network was launched, ADSL prices plunged, Internet banking was introduced, the IT Park project started. We thought it was a good idea to blog about these developments. Thus ThimphuTech.com was created.

After a one year break in Washington, D.C., we're back to Thimphu. And so we're re-launching ThimphuTech.com. We'll ramble about technology, coffee and happiness. Hope you'll enjoy the reincarnated blog!
