Blogs I have been reading these days

I have to say I am glad to see many people from Burma blogging. Back in 1998 when I was in the States, there were not many web sites about Burma except by the activists, such as http://www.burmanet.org. Back then, the Internet was just starting to grow up. I remember using a very old version of Netscape to go online from my Alma Mater, Indian-Purdue University.

The Internet has come a long way since then. So are web sites from Burma. My web site has been up and running since May 1998 and I can't believe time flies whether you are having fun or not ;-)

My old web site was at the student web server from my school. It no longer exists because I am not a student there any more. http://www.student.ipfw.edu/~moel01

Dr. Than Tun, the great historian, died today.

He is a great scholar. He came to MIT once to talk about how to do research on history. He commented about censorship. I am sorry we lost a great scholar of Burma.
