Welcome to ฝรั่ง.com (farang)

I’m going to offer my perspective on all things Thai on this blog. I am an American who visits Thailand frequently and has interests in Thailand. But my perspective is that of a foreigner, so it may not match the view of native Thai people.

Technology policy in Thailand is at a critical point in my opinion, as issues have been festering, times are changing, neighboring countries are getting increasingly competitive, etc.  So this is the goal I have for this blog.
