Swamped – talk amongst yourselves…

Yesterday and today are a little hectic around here, and needless to say at this stage the blog unfortunately gets bumped down a rung or two when push comes to shove. But it’s a good type of busy that should make for some good topics on the blog down the road – “deferred inspiration” you might say.

In the meantime, It’s Independance Day in Cambodia:

In 1863, the king of Cambodia placed the country under French protection; it became part of French Indochina in 1887. Following Japanese occupation in World War II, Cambodia became independent within the French Union in 1949 and fully independent in 1953.

Additionally, I’d be keen to hear thoughts from anyone on blogging for a multicultural audience. Solutions for translation/localization etc. There’s some comments in the “Don’t need to translate…” post a few days ago. I’d love to put together a series of posts on that topic – and would be keen on other blogger’s insights.

    Globalization and blogging?
    We’re giving it a shot in Cambodia –
    we need more open source Khmer language blog resources, but also more multilingual bloggers.

    Interesting site jinja – defenitely will give it a read-through.

    Is Global Voices predominantly authored in English or are there a variety of source language’s amongst the bloggers?

    Are you doing any translation or does stuff generally stay in its source language only?
