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.

SSEASR conference is on, website is off

No mountains here!
RUB is hosting the 4th SSEASR conference on "Mountains in the Religions of South and Southeast Asia: Place, Culture, and Power". The conference started yesterday and will go on during this weekend.
The conference title seemed interesting, so I went online to find out the program. The official website is http://www.sseasr.org/. Unfortunately  the site is down  - just when you need it (see photo). According to Google, which keeps snapshots of many webpages, it was up only a few days ago and so I was able to find an copy of the SSEASR's home page from last Sunday, but not a lot of information is there. I also found this nice "call for papers" poster, but it doesn't contain the program. If you happen to have an online copy of the conference program, please let me know.
