I'm here at the Warp Internet cafe on the 7th floor of MBK mall in Bangkok, which boasts up to 8 Mbps high-speed access.
The minimum fee is 30 baht for 50 minutes — they give you coupons with a username and password. Not bad at all. Just finished editing stuff for INQ7, checking my e-mail, YMing and now updating this blog.
I'm in Bangkok with Lawrence Casiraya of Computerworld Philippines to cover a Juniper Networks regional conference which kicks off tomorrow. Lots of exciting stuff ahead regarding voice over IP, IP TV and other value-added services for enterprises and carriers.
Sure, convergence is an overused word, but now it's becoming a reality.
Bangkok is an amazing city. It's only my second time to be here, and the last time I was here was about 7 years ago, so lots of things have changed. We've been here since Saturday — we decided to fly ahead in order to have time to explore the city. Plus I'm also in charge of INQ7's RoadTrip travel and transportation site, so I'll also be writing stories about our adventures.
