I went today to the Safety week exhibition at Bitec. More or less by accident as it was next to the very boring Fast Car Show I actually wanted to attend. But the Safety fair was a better choice. It was quite a surprise to see how advanced safety standards can be. The tools and gear is there in Thailand, even the knowledge. Quite a few universities were looking for students to get a bachelor in Occupational and Health or safety majors. (The picture are Khon Kaen students, who were the only ones who dared to approach me in English of course).

Again, it seems to be lack of enforcement of laws that makes your average Somchai ignoring safety issues, because rules and laws are in place, and as I saw at the fair, hardware isn't an issue as well.

The first Arts camp in Laos
The camp thing follows me since I am in Asia, but I called a bit for it, since I organized quite a few events, Barcamps and a Filmcamp. And I always advocated to use the Camp-Concept for other industries, for example Art. Now the dream came true to have an ...

Arrived today: My pebble time. So far I like it, the colors are good, readability even indoor is good. Unfortunately one of my favorite apps, Up for Pebble, doesn't work, so I have to use another app to count steps. Also a bit of a disappointment is the voice recording: it only works (so far) to reply to SMS and certain messages. But this works pretty well - requires internet connection of course.

The wristband is way better then the one for the original pebble, feels softer and smoother.On pictures the bezel looks bigger than it appears in reality, not disturbing at all. The timeline feature is nice, although I would like to see more apps feeding into it (ToDoist, for example).

I think Pebble will start developing more functionalities once the headache with shipping is over. In particular the smart straps are a big issue: although the Pebble Time has the connector, no straps are on the market yet (or in sight). Let's hope something will be done soon.

Sometimes when you try to get rid of something (like graffiti) you may accidently create something new, in this case a new pattern...

We went to a rugby game at Pattana school, our friend Cholt is member of the women team of the Bangkok Bangers.. they lost in the final, but it was a funny afternoon. I don't understand why this ball has such a bad shape.. more round would make it way easier to catch..

Please help to make this book real! Every dollar helps!
 
Hi awesome people!
We are making the first science book in Laos "Big Stories In A Small World" which is a book in Pop Sci genre. It’s about stories in science, scientific finding that change the world, thinking in science perspective, concept and the important of it. This book will open a brand new world for Lao reader to enter the world of science in a very easy and enjoyable way, which I’m sure it will help people to love in reading more, think more reasonably and motivate Lao kids and citizens to study in science.

Please help backing our project if you can but that doesn’t mean you can’t help, you can still share about our campaign via Twitter, Facebook, Email, Tumblr...

Thank you so much for taking the time to get involved. This means so much more to us than you will ever know.

There is a small but interesting exhibition at Bridge Cafe and Art Space (BTS Sapan Thaksin) Bangkok from a Thai and a French artist.

From the Facebook page:
"Kanjana Chonsiri and Alexandre Poisson, the two students selected in 2015 for the exchange program between the Faculty of Painting, Sculpture and Graphic Arts of Silpakorn University and Paris’ National School of Fine Arts (Ecole Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-arts de Paris - ENSBA) present the works they created during their crossed residencies of three months in France and Thailand.

Through their own perspective, Kanjana Chonsiri and Alexandre Poisson have established an artistic dialogue, a plastic testimony of their experiences and meetings, lived by both, in each country."

Personally I really like Kanjana Chonsiri's work quite a lot. She has a well developed sense for aesthetics and colors, brought together in well expressed small sculptures.

Since the space has a coffee shop as well and really nice staff, I can only recommend to make a stop there.

This is not only the cutest coffee in town, it is also a meeting place for the young Lao filmmaker scene. Homemade excellent cakes, free Wifi, good lunch. If you want to get in touch with open minded Lao people, spend time there. Eat the Sukijakisoup.

Popular with some NGOS, UN-staff etc. but for me totally overrated. Nothing special, and the branch in downtown is noisy and dusty.
