Barcamp Saigon

Why should i join the Barcamp?

Barcamp to me is kind of social activity, where i can meet new people. I would like to meet and share my thought, and my experiences with others. Moreover, to be more understand other culture espcailly my neiborhood country.

I have discovered one theory that "I do not believe in something easily" so before I believe in history or in old theoryof old generation i have to come and see things by my own. Cambodia and Vietname has been in bad and good relationship since it was discovered. People in the past have done a lot bad and little good things so the new generation has a duty to make our relation of neiborhood country better,or to make a better world together. Obama is a black skin, and now he's a president of USA, and i remember of his power speech that "Nothing impossible in America" so Cambodia, Vietname, Thailan, Iraq, and other Country will make new history of no more dicrimination .

What is Barcamp?
Barcamp: To my understanding and my previous experiences joining Barcamp Phnom Penh,
and Barcamp Saigon, barcamp is a place where all background of people meet, talk, and
discussion their own thought, experiences…mostly they are so called GEEK. Every audience can make their speech or presentation of anything they are interested not only about technology but also about international globalization. Ex, I myself I presented about “Sexy Cambodian Blogger”

I would like to thanks Preetam so much for being such a creating minded that could think of a very attractive topic. ^^ {please take a look below of my draft speech}

BarCamp is an international network of user generated conferences — open, participatory workshop-events, whose content is provided by participants — often focusing on early-stage web applications, and related open source technologies, social protocols, and open data formats. By Wikipedia!

BarCamp Phnom Penh is open for computer enthusiasts, technologists,IT professionals, geeks, and nerds to talk and discuss all things technology. As the event is open for the public, and hopes to inspire IT community in Cambodia. In this event, it will be available for all of you to access free wifi internet. So, you should bring your own laptop by yourself. By Vutha,!

BarCamp Saigon: Perhaps BarCamp needs a little explaining. It’s a technology educational event that does not fit any traditional molds. But it’s more than an educational event, it’s a way for people with similar interests and passions to meet and share knowledge and experiences with technology{...}

Here are the list of people impression about Barcamp Saigon:

Me with awesome barcampsaigon t-shirt. People are writing their speech on different sessions. I was one of them too ;")Sitting on floor is comfortable more than anything :P Actually, our laptops were run off battery!
Preetam Session is crowded, people are so interested with the topic about pretty women in Asia :P but Ramana and I are not that interested...Plz Preetam, next barcamp you should speak about handsome guys in Asia.
Geoff(Cambodian/American/Koran) is working so hard :)

Finally, i decided to have one drink....er..it's a real earthquake

i'm having fun at Saigon, VN with some folks. And tomorrow we're going to join Barcamp Saigon, i'm so excited.

Op...I still have to take some time to read and do some work too :( no choice!


un-name-able :s

I don't understand why and why, why bla bla.... but i do try manage myself to hard not to think too much or i might be mental illness sooner or later! Sigh!!!

Life is really hard and complicated as usaully to me, but i keep telling myself i was born in live in difference reason. And I live with only hope from inside me not really from others. There are too much ego now, it's almost exploided. It's rarely to have a peaceful sleep since my head is always working like unstopable, who i am, where i came from, why i have to live, why and why....

though i am really Choav Chak Smouk (complicated...) girl, I always keep myself h**l busy so my brain doesn't have time to think or work out of scope :D oh i do enjoy myself too. Always WORK HARD, PLAY HEAR.

I just realize one more thing, i must improve my Self-Esteem(loving yourself, encouraging yourself, being urself bestfriend, always positive, healthy minded). it's the way to enjoy beautiful life.

that's all for today.
