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.

Why @drukair must not display its poll results

Drukair is conducting a customer satisfaction poll on its website's homepage. A good idea, no doubt.

However, is it a good idea to display the results? Probably not, given the large number of Poor and Very poor ratings.

I would recommend:

  1. Finding out why so many people are not happy with Drukair
  2. Making sure visitors to the site will not be able to the the results.
