Any Thai readers out there?

While R- randomly was googling my website came across this site, a Thai blog that mentions my home page, my dissertation, and my cv. I used this site for a very rough translation, and still sort of intrigued.

No english speakers know about me, but neat to see that I show up on the blogs of south-east asian speakers. My website showed up on another blog a while back in an unidentified south-east asian language. Kinda funny how things spread on the internet.

The writers there seem well informed. They also mention my friend Saum, and correctly note that he is currently interviewing for jobs, and so don't know where he'll wind up. Weird.

Hi Ben,

I follow the link from this site where it mentions this post (

Yes, I can read Thai. Basically, the web is a discussion forum about the graduate education. The original poster came across your blog and introduced other members to read yours (and other interesting academic people's blogs). Your work is interesting and I know that several of my Thai friends have read your blog quite regularly.

Neat thanks. I am always curious who the readers are. My hit counter tells me there are some, but always interesting to get a glimpse of who it is. Thanks.
