Paul, · Categories: Alumni and other friends, General, Information Commons, Virtual Communities

Xeni Jardin‘s Day to Day story for today is about the wireless networking in Dharamsala/McLeod Ganj. The NPR site doesn’t identify Phuntsok, but the Boingboing story using the same picture does. The same picture is on her Xeni.net/trek blog with a nice caption — it’s Phuntsok in every case.

Phuntsock, see you guys up in Himachal Pradesh in a couple of weeks.
