One of the benefits of having worked in the media in Hong Kong around the time of the Handover was that there were so many great journalists, photographers and other industry professionals living there, or running in and out of the place all the time. One of the guys I became friends with and came to respect immensely was an Asiaweek writer named Joel Tesoro. Since our days in HK, Joel has gone on to write a book that was named a 2005 Kiriyama Prize Notable Book in Non-Fiction and is now slogging away at Harvard Law School (yah, real underachiever, eh?). Joel is also a contributor to Harvard Law’s Global Voices blog. Earlier today, Joel posted an article that he wrote on a few Southeast Asian bloggers, yours truly included.
