    Children on the margins

    Outlook, Vasana Chinvarakorn, Published on 07/01/2010

    » There is light in the eyes of these children as they laugh. It shines out of the darkness that surrounds them. Under the fluorescent glare, the youngsters are giggling or convulsing with laughter at the performances of their peers. One by one, they take turns staging one-of-a-kind shows - shadow and hand puppetry, a live theatre and singing skit, and even traditional ethnic Shan dances during which some appreciative audience members present the amateur performers with small cash gifts. The memorable night will no doubt be cherished by the youths for years to come. It's a rare opportunity for the 30 stateless children in Chiang Mai to spend three days learning the basics of art and producing this unique "festival" together.

    Brunch, Andrew Biggs, Published on 10/01/2010

    » This is a column for my Thai readers only. That's because I want to teach them a lesson about their service staff. I want to make a complaint and I want Thais to sit up and take notice. Simply put ... what on earth has happened to good ol' service these days? I'm talking about restaurants.

    Dysfunctional campaign

    Database, Published on 03/02/2010

    » Prime Minister Abhisit Vejjajiva announced that he expects third generation phone service before New Year's Eve; he then announced why there probably won't be any; in a speech to mark the fifth anniversary of the Magnificent Seven National Telecommunications Commission, Mr Abhisit set out the conflicting criteria he expects to see in Asia's last, most dysfunctional 3G campaign: service before the end of the year after fair bandwidth auctions that favour small Thai telecom operators; on one hand, "3G services can no longer be postponed," he insisted, but on the other, the NTC must bias bidding to favour a more competitive structure; the English translation of this speech: DTac of Norway and AIS of Shingapore have way too much market power now and 3G contracts must show that.

    Getting creative

    Database, Published on 10/02/2010

    » No 1 yuppiephone network Advanced Info Service of Shingapore issued an "Oh yeah?" challenge to you No 1 state-owned G3 provider, TOT, to wit: If you don't let AIS use your 3G services, we won't let any of the TOT subscribers use AIS networks for calling outside the 3G area - meaning about 99.8 percent of Thailand; to rehash the story up to now: AIS has no 3G service but lusts after it, while TOT has installed some 3G carriers for a few thousand users in a couple of corners of Bangkok, and may have some service in Pattaya within a few months, or so.
