Buzz: Craig is in the News!

This post is the second in my series of buzzes for blogs in 2008! In 2006, Craig contacted me about helping him host his website and gallery. With the changes at Flickr, this is looking like a smart move on his part… esp. if Microsoft get their hands on Flickr. They’ll surely kill it, just as they destroyed… Read More »

Drive in Taiwan – if you DARE!

Would you dare… if you saw this on the road? I was just chatting to some new friends who live in the same building as we do.

Buzz: Michael Turton’s – The View From Taiwan

The winner from last week’s competition about TaiChung is Michael Turton who guessed correctly that I was taking the picture from the 25th floor of the Splendor Hotel in Taichung.

But I do not. It really depends on who is borrowing, how much they are borrowing, what they are paying, why they need the… Read More »

The Tea Kingdoms: Hong Kong, China and Taiwan

This story caught my eye! Novel ways in which Chinese tea companies can compete with Starbucks, and Coca Cola. I’ve already looked at the tea business in Taiwan, but this video story follows up quite nicely. Enjoy!

Newsbits and bytes: Ooo, Cows, Banking, and MT

After fixing my own wordpress install , I can get back to business with posting some stuff… OpenOffice.org It seems that OpenOffice is now updated to version 2.3.1.
