Some words from blog to blog

Some words from blog to blog

As some of you may have already noticed, we are working intensively on a new project, which you can find at burmablog.net. Like many other projects, we started from private funding after having identified the need. The question of funding is not yet solved and like our dictionary we might just continue it for the time being as a voluntary activity until we have reached a critical mass of users.

Fortunately, not only is the Burmese cyberspace full of enthusiastic bloggers and active supporters. The Czech branch of T-Mobile kindly provided us with a free mobile Internet connection, ICanLocalize and a free version of their multilingual plugin and Flattr has admitted us to their charity support. A big thank you to all of them!

Hope to also meet you on the new website!

but the important thing is that i can finally write something! to rush through the beginning, we arrived safely late saturday night and spent sunday getting the lay of the land and then welcoming the three czech journalists who had followed us on different flights.
