At the Cambodian Blogger Summit

Update: There was a reunion in 2019

I am here at Pannasastra University in Cambodia for the Cambodia Bloggers Summit. I have been following Cambodia blogosphere for about two years now and impressed with the diversity of topics that bloggers in Cambodia talk about and the fact that many young bloggers write in English.

Cambodian bloggers are also more active in outreach going out to the provinces and universities and helping people understand the internet and blogging. Also impressive is the use of web-based technologies to set up the conference. The entire registration and scheduling was done on wikispaces, and there is a live feed and discussion on uStream.

Clogger Summit

My presentation featured some of the blogs I follow and some characteristics of Cambodian blogosphere. Though both Vietnam and Thailand have a higher number of Internet users, I know more about Cambodia because a lot of Cambodian bloggers write in English.
