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,
Boaz & Galit.

Help a baby owl

I re-posting an email from Hendrik and Marianne of the Pilou Animal Shelter.
This may seem off-hand a bit of a weird request, but we are looking for small dead rodents and birds. We have rescued a baby owl and for his nutrition it is important that s/her eats fur, skin, feathers and small bones next to meat. Since we do not want to kill any animals, so we would like to ask anybody who may find a dead small animal to give us a call so we can pick it up. Of course we need to be careful, especially concerning the rodents, that they are not killed by poisons or pesticides, since that would also pose risks to the owl. So if you know this is the case, please do tell us!


Your help is really appreciated, since without this kind of food the owl will have very little chances of survival. That one dead mouse you find may just make the difference!


Thank you very much in advance!
