countdown to cnet asia tech blog05/26/06 at 6:25 pm | Posted in Tech | Leave a comment
While I was in Bangkok this Monday, we began the dry run for the blog network that CNet Asia is launching. I'm proud to be part of the first batch of tech bloggers whose sites will go live next week.
CNet Asia managing editor Juniper Foo talked about the upcoming launch in her column today. Here's an excerpt:
If you believe the mindboggling (mindblogging?) numbers, one blog is created every second. That's faster than you can say Avian flu. And we're about to unabashedly add 11 more to blogtopia. But here at CNET Asia, we'd like to raise the bar just a wee bit. In that spirit, over the past months, we've invited to the fold individuals whose contributions to the blogspace have been noteworthy.
Under the banner of Regional Dispatches, these tech arbiters will spin their riffs on the digital revolution from the geek frontier of 11 regional countries. The aim: To provide English-speaking Asia with a window to the technological fermentation brewing in each key Asian city. With that, I am excited to announce first up next week dispatches from China, Malaysia, Indonesia and the Philippines joining our current blogger from Japan. Following suit, the next few months will see bloggers from India, Hong Kong, Taiwan, Singapore, Korea and Thailand coming onboard.
I'm really excited, and I'm grateful for the opportunity to let tech readers across the region know more about the Philippines.
