Another topic suggested by a listener, @PocketHifi, who just had a painful experience of losing critical files.

We managed to pull @PlaJazz, @iPattt, @iNattt and @iChattt to share their musical performance at various wedding functions, some common mistakes that they had witnessed. It was very obvious that they had been to numerous functions because they could comment on various aspects of the wedding ceremonies; catering, hotels, rooms, etc. This was another long recording with many funny moments that we had to break it into two episodes. This was the second one.

Curiosity killed the cat and it might also kill our site. However, since this was a somewhat taboo topic in Thailand, we would like to test the water as well as producing a fun topic to discuss. We had our old friend @RudSooparb to share the info, as well as having four other friends to make it more fun, they are @Pawoot, @PorpeangSeller, @JetBoat26 and @Ripmilla. As expected, we all enjoyed the conversation so much that we had to extend it to two sessions, this was the second one.

Our co-host, Ning, invited an interesting couple to share their biking experience. Both, with a group of friends, went to Switzerland for a bike trip. That showed how serious they took their biking as a hobby. Also, K.Pakasit, the husband, rode his bike to work on a daily basis to Sathorn road in the middle of Bangkok. This was another long recording so we splitted into 2 recordings and this was the second one. Unfortunately, we needed to divide the second episode into 2 files, otherwise it's gonna a very long episode, almost 100 minutes.

The news of Rakuten investing in his Tarad.com in 2009 was talk of the town among IT people. We invited him over for share his entrepreneur experience.

We first met Pakorn, AKA iNattt, at Wawee as the lead local of the iHear band. And over the year, he became famous in his own right. He posted what he encountered during the chaos in Bangkok in May of this year. And over night, he gained thousands followers on Twitter because of the incidents. However, there was another side of him that most people were not aware of, he was jewelry designer, more of him at http://www.inattt.com. On this episode, we asked him to share his experience and expertise in jewelry design. By accident, we had Rud coming over to join the conversation and it turned out to be a long discussion. We decided to break it into two episodes; one on jewelry design and the others on singing. On the second episode, we focused on his singing experience and how he became an iHear member.

51 Minutes - September 27, 2010
From the event, organized by the Aspirers Group at the Siam City hotel, on Saturday September 25, 2010, we decided to use this session as an episode in Changkhui. The event was live broadcasted over the internet by Beenets. On this session, there were six digital media enthusiasts shared their views on current development on digital media and devices. They were @Sresuda, @Jakrapong, Poonlarb, @Kafaak, @Kkpt and @Pariwat
Changkhui 183. DualGeek at Changkhui
1 Hour 44 Minutes - September 20, 2010
One of very first, if not the first, podcasts in Thailand came to our show. The DualGeek podcast, Wee Viraporn (http://www.DesignPaiBonPai.com or http://www.twitter.com/comicstudies) and Rawitat Pulam (http://www.Rawitat.com or http://www.twitter.com/Rawitat), came to host an episode for us. The two usually talked on various Mac topic, and since Apple just recently launched an update on its iPod product line, a listener then suggested that DualGeek and Changkhui hosted an episode together to talk about this. And they promptly agreed. It was really a pleasure to have them on our show.

Changkhui 181. Love Is All Around
1 Hour 25 Minutes - August 23, 2010
Something we have been wishing for but did not really push for it. We incidentally stumbled upon a listener, @VirusFowl, who was blind. It's been an itch to find out how the blinds surfed on the Internet, so we could not pass up this oppportunity. Then we asked a long-time volunteer for the blinds in Thailand, also, a long-time Changkhui listener, @VisEua, to share his experience. He then tried persuading @NooKao, another volunteer to join the episode. But we would need @OuiMu's help, so she would come along. Finally, we found @Ripmilla on Skype, so we pulled him in just for fun.
Changkhui 180. Androids and Others
1 Hour 36 Minutes - August 16, 2010
A topic suggested by @Paul_Lin, as we were running out of topic. Once a topic was established, the rest started falling into place. We managed to get @Ripmilla and his significant others, @JoyZ, to share their experiences. Since this was the fourth-year anniversary of Changkhui, it would only be appropriate to get the new-blood co-host, @FordAntitrust, to host the episode with the original co-host since episode one, Worawat. As to be expected, having five people chatting, it was just a matter time when someone would steer away from the intended topic, hence, the name of the episode.
Changkhui 179. Telecom Trends
1 Hour 30 Minutes - August 9, 2010
Due to a few comments over episode 176, we decided to try to do it again, with the same set of guests and co-host. Jor and Nim came back to discuss what 3G could do and what happened in other countries. And towards the end, we talked about Femtocell.
Changkhui 178. Color, part 2
55 Minutes - August 2, 2010
Another episode suggested by @FordAntitrust. After discussing about photos in episode 175, there were some discussions about the color profile of cameras, so we invited our guru, khun Kajorn (Twitter.com/Kajorn), to share his knowledge on the subject and he did not fail us. Also, we had @RabbitMoon (Twitter.com/RabbitMoon), who was a post-graduate student on this very subject at the faculty of science at Chulalongkorn University, and @PocketHifi (twitter.com/pockethifi), who was a professional photographer, to share their experiences on the episode. The entire recording was almost two hours so we decided break this into two episodes. This was the second one.

Our guests on this episode are Nuttaphol http://jows.blogspot.com and Kanokporn http://www.oknation.net/blog/nimkanokporn from a telecom company with Worawat as a co-host.
Changkhui 175. Graudation Day Photos
1 Hour 37 Minutes July 5, 2010
July is the starting point of graduation ceremony in Thailand. Since we have quite a few listeners who are quite active photographers, we may as well try to make an episode out of it. This time we have a newly-arrived-from-USA listener, Jane or Twitter.com/JaneMontr, Guy or Twitter.com/KraiWa, Ford or Twitter.com/FordAntitrust, Bay (Thanaraj) and me. All shared their experiences in taking photos in various graduation days with some funny stories.
Changkhui 174. Live Experience
1 Hour 12 Minutes June 28, 2010
From listeners to a team, this is an episode that gather a group of friends who have been working together for some time. @FordAntitrust requested that we should have an episode about this. It started from producing an episode at Wawee in October 2009, then there were events after events and, finally, we had a team. @Simplywit was in charge of all audio-related setting and recording, @FordAntitrust was in charge of network and IT setting, @MueNue was in charge of video, @Mr_Aum was in charge of overall setting and I was the producer. Too bad that @Mr_Aum was missing, so we all ended up toasting for him.
Changkhui 173. WWDC 2010 Experience
1 Hour 19 Minutes - June 21, 2010
@meneeeee attended the Apple annual conference on her own so we asked her to share the experience when she came back. It was very obvious that she had a very good time there, enjoying every minute of it, although, it's a very tech-oriented conference. Due to the NDA required for attending the event, she could not reveal much about what the actual conference, but this should provide an idea of what to look and expect, should someone want to attend in the future.
Changkhui: 172. Marvelic and Open Source
1 Hour 26 Minutes - June 7, 2010
Having listened to their presentation on open source development at the first WordCamp in Bangkok 2008, I could recall my impression, it was fun and very informative. Later on, I got to know more about k.Akarawuth via Twitter and friends. Eventually, it's time to talk and invited him over for an episode in Changkhui. He also pulled along his friend, k.Pisal, to join the conversation. We talked about how he got started in the IT world and, later on, open source community. It was a very impressive story for me, personally, but, at the same time, sad that these great people did not quite get the recognition that they deserved in Thailand. You could follow k.Akarawuth at twitter.com/joomlacorner and at his blog (Akarawuth.com) and k.Pisal at Twitter.com/lungkao and Lungkao.com.
Changkhui: 171. Experiencing iPad
1 Hour 9 Minutes - May 31, 2010
Having been using our own iPads for a while, it's time to share our experience. Kangg (Siampod.com) and Menn (mene078.wordpress.com) both use their iPad on daily basis. I also have one, so it's time to share what each thinks of its practical use and favourite apps.
Changkhui: 170. Web Design Issues by @iMenn
1 Hour 11 Minutes - May 24, 2010
It's been more than 2 years since I listened to him talked about Wordpress at the first WordCamp event in Bangkok. Eventually, I met him at a Twitter meeting and managed to know him. His name was Jakrit Talawat, AKA Menn or @iMenn on Twitter. He was one of the most well-known web designers among Thai Open Source community. We talked about making an episode, it was a little awkward since he lived in Pai, yes, that's Pai up north of Thailand. Finally, while he was in Bangkok, I managed to get him to record this. We talked on various issues, especially since I had my own difficulty in designing and coding for Changkhui site myself. He was a great representative of the up-and-coming generation of Thailand. You may visit him at iMenn.com
Changkhui: 169. In Light of Working from Home
1 Hour 19 Minutes - May 17, 2010
In light of working from home, we were stuck with nothing much we could really do, so we decided to make an episode out of it. K.Visanu (@VisEua), Oui (@OuiMu) and Ford (@FordAntitrust) had agreed to contribute to the episode. Due to ongoing unrest in Bangkok, we tried to keep the tone of this recording as light as possible. Please forgive us if this was too light, life had just been tough lately.
Changkhui: 168. Hosting in Thailand
1 Hour 17 Minutes, May 3, 2010
For those who were active in Thailand's Twiter communities, you could not help but notice a lady who tweeted regularly with some very inside information about the ICT movement. Of course, this was khun Moui, who was the chairlady of the Thai Web Hosting club. A few days earlier, relative to the time of this recording, she was invited to talk to the Thai police headquarter to share her experience about web hosting. So out of curiosity, we invited her over to share her story about her encounter with the law enforcement communities. This was one lady who really knew a lot about the Thai ICT movement.
Changkhui: 166. Concert Production 2
1 Hour 14 Minutes, April 26, 2010
I was very impressed with the Innocent concert DVD, the 5.1-system audio on the DVD was, by far, the best audio on any Thai concert DVD I have ever listened to. So on these two episodes, we invited @muenue and @mr_aum to share their experiences in the concert production and post-production. We went through pre-production, production and post-production processes. It was an enjoyable recording session. This was the second episode.

A long-time listener of Changkhui and great commentator on our webboard appeared on this episode. Visanu Euarchukiati, the webmaster and podcaster of http://www.KhaiKhan.in.th, was a long-time Astronomy enthusiast and a member of the Thai Astronomical Society (http://thaiastro.nectec.or.th). He shared his knowledge on the topic with our friends, Piyatad and Peng. With a party of four, the conversation took for hours and we had to break it into two episodes. We covered from where, when, time-of-night, equipment and FAQ on the topic. Sadly, the very first 50 minutes of the recording was mysteriously missing from the Garage Band recording. We had to schedule k.Visanu for a Skype recording to repeat it just for the part. So on this recording, you would hear the re-recording and whatever-was-left on the first recording. And this was the second and final episode of the topic.

Changkhui: 160. eCommerce Issues by Pawoot
58 minutes - February 15, 2010
After meeting him on several occasions at Wawee, public events and social gathering, we finally had a chance to talk to him at Changkhui. About over a month ago, he posted his comments on Twitter about taxes policy and that by itself could be topic in Changkhui so we invited him over. We touched on various issues; Thai competitiveness in IT market, how to lure international companies into Thailand and so on. Here was a good introduction to know him and you could see more of him at Pawoot.com, Twitter.com/Pawoot and Tarad.com.
Changkhui: 159. Buying Smart Phones
1 Hour 40 minutes - February 8, 2010
Back in the first half of 2008, people would not have much of a choice in terms of selecting a smart phone, most, if not all, would have to pick iPhone. However, in the last quarter of 2009 and up until now, it ain' t that easy anymore. There are iPhone, Blackberry, Android and, yes, Nokia is still around. @ripmilla had direct experience in using all of them and was very happy with iPhone, while @FordAntitrust was content with his Blackberry. Sorry, I am still using my 2-year old Nokia N95 8GB. However, at the end of the conversation, we did not have any real conclusion on which was a winner but it should have some ideas to those who were interested in getting one.
Changkhui: 158. GeoCaching and Augmented Reality by Koson
54 minutes - February 1, 2010
This episode was recorded on January 6, 2010, a few weeks before the Apple announcement of iPad. Koson was in Bangkok for the Christmas break, we met briefly and still had to record this via Skype. He picked three topics to cover. Geocaching seemed to be his favorite game at the time that we spoke.
Changkhui: 157. Thai-characters Encoding
1 Hour 15 minutes - January 25, 2010
In 2007, I had an opportunity to attend the Apple Pro Day event in Bangkok. One of the talk I listened to to was khun Kajorn Bhirakit's session, he was talking about workflow in Adobe's InDesign. He pointed out about the Thai-character encoding standard that was missing and caused a few headaches among the Thai publishing industry; a simple txt file could potentially gave different display, depending on which operating system and software you were using to open it. More than 2 years went by and I managed to have a chance to talk to him. We talked at my place and he patiently explained what went wrong at the beginning and some possible solutions in the future. You can follow him at twitter.com/Kajorn and ThaiAdobeUser.com.
Changkhui: 156. #ThaiNoSniff

Changkhui: 155. @ThaiShortNews
1 Hour 15 minutes - January 11, 2010
After some begging and cheering from a few followers, he agreed to appear on the show. @ThaiShortNews, AKA Doctor Jimmy, was actually a medical doctor but decided to turn his back to hospitals and became programmers. He was in the industry since Windows 2.0. He was based in Chiangmai and still very much active in IT industry. The easiest way to contact him these days is via Twitter.

1 Hour 34 minutes - January 4, 2010
We were suggested and introduced by Guzzie Ang to Leong Wong-savuns, a Thai who worked in a CG production company in the USA. He was part of the post-production team for the movie Avatar. Because of our lack of depth for the topic, we invited a listener over to help, he was @NotJiam, who was an award winner for his animation during college years. This was one episode where we felt we should have prepared for the discussion, however, Loeng saved the day by sharing his working experience.

Changkhui: 153. Recommended Read by Rikker Dockum
1 Hour 1 minutes - December 31, 2009
Seeing a referral from http://www.thaivisa.com, so we checked who the person was. Rikker Dockum turned out to be an American who could speak Thai very fluently. Too bad, he did not update his blog (Thai101.net) That often anymore. It took us sometime to schedule a recording session due to his hectic schedule, but anyway, when he came, he actually prepared the recording materials, so the episode was running on auto-pilot mode. He came with a few Thai books that he recommended to anyone interested in reading Thai materials, including Thai, of course. You can also follow him at Twitter.com/Thai101.
Changkhui: 5 Likes/Dislikes of 2009, episode 5
1 Hour 36 minutes - December 28, 2009
The 5th and final episode of 2009 5-likes and 5-dislikes. This time we have a first-time guest, @muenue, we met her at Wawee and saw what she tweeted so we invited her over. There should be no introduction needed for old timers for @FordAntitrust and @9aum.
Changkhui: 5 Likes/Dislikes of 2009, episode 4
1 Hour 13 minutes - December 26, 2009
The 4th episode of 2009 5-likes and 5-dislikes. This is the long-awaited episode with the long-time contributors to Changkhui; mEnE (@meneeeee) and Phz (@Phz).
Changkhui: 152. Supadej Sutthiphongkanasai, Ripmilla
1 Hour 38 minutes - December 21, 2009
Having seen him performed on stage as a moderator in various technology events and TV shows, it tempted us to get to know more about him. Supadej Sutthiphongkanasai, aka @ripmilla on Twitter, was a Thai web celebrity, appearing regularly on a tech TV show on Nation Channel, Beartai Hitech, on Sunday 10pm. He also ran http://www.freeware.in.th. On this episode, we asked how he got to where he was.
Changkhui: 5 Likes/Dislikes of 2009, episode 3
MP3 29 MB 59 minutes - December 19, 2009
The 3rd episode of 2009 5-likes and 5-dislikes. This episode reached the limit of Skype conference; party of six. We had Kangg (@Kangg), Marsh (@adct2luv), Champ (@Sitdh), Ohm (@Ohm4u) and Wit (@Simplywit).
Changkhui: 5 Likes/Dislikes of 2009, episode 2
43 Minutes - December 15, 2009
The second episode of 2009 5-likes and 5-dislikes. On this episode, we had Prode (@Rabbitmoon) and Aum (@Mr_Aum). Some of the lists were quite unique and, of course, funny.
Changkhui: 151. Games on Facebook and TwtCon
1 Hour 9 Minutes - December 14, 2009
Due to an episode on BusinessWeek This Week's Cover Story podcast on October 22 and one on Stanford's Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders October 28, with a conversation during lunch with office colleagues, those three incidents prompted me to make an episode on it. We were lucky to have @meneeeee and @sitdh to help us on the issue. We then went on to talk about the Twtcon event on November 26. The event info was at http://www.twtcon.com.
Changkhui: 5 Likes/Dislikes of 2009, episode 1
1 Hour 42 Minutes - December 13, 2009
A special episode, 2nd year in a row. We simply asked what were your top 5 "likes" and 5 "dislikes" in 2009. This time, we focused on our listeners. On this episode, whade Guy (@GuyNjoyFoto), Mob (@Pokemaniac) and Sun (@LifeIsSeeker). There were some varieties and mostly fun.
Twit Pattaya
Changkhui: 150. TwitPty
1 hour 25 minutes - December 7, 2009
We got some help on this episode. There would be a Twitter event in Pattaya on December 12, 2009, more information at http://unseenpattaya.do.in.th. One of our long-time listeners happened to be a DJ at a local radio station in Pattaya, his name was Eddie and the radio station was FM 106.60, http://www.fm10660.com. He produced an episode on the event, having both the guest and the host of the event on the show and passed it along if we could re-distribute. Hey, that saved me for another week of episode.
Changkhui: 149. GPS
59 minutes - November 23, 2009
After many postpones, we finally managed to record this episode in an office. Having noticed the popularity of GPS this year, we had to find someone to explain the practical use of it. Surached and Toom were my office colleagues who have been using it lately, so this was easy to find someone who could talk about this. All in all, the technology had been quite practical for some time even in Thailand and there were many practical uses of it, other than just maps.
Changkhui: 148. Plajazz
1 Hour 11 minutes - November 9, 2009
As a parting note when I met Patchara (iHear), he suggested that I could talk to his friend, Plajazz, the trumpet man on iHear Band on how he went from an engineer to a full-time musician. Since we had no episode in stock, so I contacted him on Twitter and he duly responded within minutes, so we met on Skype on November 10 at almost midnight. Plajazz, Kriengkrai Suntipojana, had been playing trumpet since grade 7. He continued to play during his engineering years at Chulalongkorn university. After graduation, he went through a few soul-searching years, until he realized that he was, really, a musician. This guy was still young and it was likely that Changkhui had spotted another star before it would shine in due time. His site was at http://www.plajazz.com and you might follow him at Twitter.com/Plajazz.
Changkhui: 147. Virus
1 Hour 18 minutes - November 2, 2009
Due to a request from a listener, suggesting us to talk about computer viruses, we invited @Nsom (Twitter.com/nsom) to share his knowledge. Nsom talked about evolutions on computer viruses since late 80s to present. Though we did not point out specifically what programs each was using, we did provide a guideline on how one should practice and go about venturing into the cyberworld full of viruses. Another outdoor episode, sorry for the sound quality.
Changkhui: 146. iHear at Wawee
1 Hour 10 minutes - October 26, 2009
For the last 2 months, I could not help but notice a new phenomenon in Bangkok among geeks and music lovers. Every sunday afternoon, a community is forming at a coffee shop. iHear is a loosely-formed band among friends, starting with @plajazz and @iPattt. This is a truly a social-network phenomenon. Pat is a entrepreneur and musician, he actually plays on stage and for studio recording, and the same time, he co-owns a web development company. Pat talks about how this is started, how he uses social network to market his audience. I witnessed this on Sunday October 25, 2009. You could see some of these performance at this YouTube Playlist. You may follow the band members on the following Twitter accounts, http://twitter.com/plajazz, http://twitter.com/INattt, http://twitter.com/feelinglomo, http://twitter.com/MuzikBank, http://twitter.com/iChattt and http://twitter.com/sexdrum.
Changkhui: 145. Thai Football League
1 Hours 21 minutes- October 12, 2009
Not a tech topic, but purely out of curiousity, we talked about the Thai fooltball league fever. It would have been impossible a decade ago to see what we witnessed today in Thailand. There were actually thousands of people who actually paid to see Thai soccer players play in a stadium. I saw tweets after tweets from Champ (twitter.com/tvchampion) who described or commented in various matches that he went to see. It was a rather niche topic, which might not be of interest to a few people.
Changkhui: 144. Windows 7
2 Hours - October 5, 2009
Microsoft successfully created a hype over its up-and-coming operating Windows 7. Their Thai marketing effort has been impressive, they went to various IT communities and gatherings. We invited our 2 friends and hosts, @9aum and @Ford Antitrust to review Windows 7, after having been using and reviewing it for sometime. So far, our judges gave a go-ahead sign for the upgrade.
Changkhui: 143. Alan Turing
50 minutes - September 28, 2009
We heard it on This Week in Tech episode 213 with John Graham-Cumming (http://www.jgc.org) to tell about his blog and petition to the British government about Alan Turing. It was a fascinating story. Something everyone wished he or she could accomplish in a life time. Anyway, we talked briefly about Alan Turing and the petition. We also have a new section in Changkhui, asking listeners to contribute their stories. This week, it was a story from twitter.com/attasun.
CC Salon Event
Changkhui: 142. CC Salon, Bangkok, part 2
1 hour 20 minutes - September 16, 2009
I meant to be there to record the event so that we could distribute it on Changkhui, but I ended up being a moderator. Arthit (Twitter.com/bact) was s'posed to be there but due to family matter, I was asked to perform the duty. Anyway, it was fun. The event was held at TCDC to promote Creative Common awareness on the Music theme. There were Kittsak Triyanont (Monotone) Patchara Kerdsiri and Jakkrit Talawat (TiGERiDEA), Athip Jittaruek (Underground Thrash Metal Project), Sarinee Achavanuntakul (Creative Commons Thailand), Kanes Paktrakasettrin and Pornpat Chevewat (Kanesha) to create awareness. It was fun and full of interesting conversations. This is the second and final part.
CC Salon Event
Changkhui: 141. CC Salon, Bangkok, part 1
1 hour 26 minutes - September 14, 2009
I meant to be there to record the event so that we could distribute it on Changkhui, but I ended up being a moderator. Arthit (Twitter.com/bact) was s'posed to be there but due to family matter, I was asked to perform the duty. Anyway, it was fun. The event was held at TCDC to promote Creative Common awareness on the Music theme. There were Kittsak Triyanont (Monotone) Patchara Kerdsiri and Jakkrit Talawat (TiGERiDEA), Athip Jittaruek (Underground Thrash Metal Project), Sarinee Achavanuntakul (Creative Commons Thailand), Kanes Paktrakasettrin and Pornpat Chevewat (Kanesha) to create awareness. It was fun and full of interesting conversations. This is the first part.
Changkhui: 140. Miscellaneious Social Etiquettes
1 hour 42 minutes - September 7, 2009
A light-hearted episode on miscellaneous social etiquettes. We gathered the original Changkhui podcasters to mark our third year anniversary episode. Also, the day coincided with the Twitter Bangkok 3 event, which was held right next door to our place, so we had 3 Changkhui listeners who went to the event and passed by to join us. Due to insufficient resource, we had to suffer another poor audio-quality episode, with very noisy children background noise. Soryy for the vulgar language.
Changkhui: 139. Sample from Changkhui Podcast Seminar
1 hour 26 minutes - August 31, 2009
Still tired from many activities before and after the seminars, both personal and business, so I decided to cheat by adding an audio version of the introduction to Audio here. The introduction music was recorded due to the fun of making it. You can find out more about the event at our blog, http://changkhui.wordpress.com.
Changkhui: 138. Podcast by Siam Technology College
1 hour 18 minutes - August 17, 2009
This was one of those unplanned and unscheduled episode. We meant to record an episode with Arthit (Twitter.com/bact) but he was nowhere to be seen, so I thought we would cancel this. But then k.Wichai (Twitter.com/XnonNano) was on Twitter so I invited him to over to share his experience on producing podcasts for the Siam Technology College (http://www.siamtechu.net). This was the college that was presented on Apple Pro Day in Bangkok last year, we also talked about them in episode 101. About 7 minutes into the recording, Arthit turned up on Skype so we invited him over to join the conversation. Turn out to be quite an interesting mix. Sorry for the sound quality but the content should more than make up for it. Thank you both khun Wichai Chareonchokepanich and khun Arthit Suriyawongkul.
Changkhui: 137. Everyday Webs
1 hour 35 minutes - August 10, 2009
Just to compare notes, we talked about webs which we visited on daily basis. This time, we had a regular listener to join us, Champ (Twitter.com/Sitdh and http://www.We.in.th). Of course, we have the usual suspects for Thai geeks, such as Siampod, Freemac, BlogNone, ThaiMacClub, but there were quite a few surprises.
Changkhui: 136. Forward Mails
1 hour 25 minutes - August 3, 2009
We intended to try do some experiments on Skype and ended up recording an episode. mEnE (Twitter.com/mEnE078 and mEnE078.wordpress.com) helped us out in preparing the script for the show and we had an honor of having Mor Maew on our show. Mor Maew (Twitter.com/Mor_Maew and Mor-Maew.exteen.com), was a well-known figure in Pantip.com community, with a reputation of providing scientific facts to counter baseless rumors and forward mails. Of course, he was a long-time Changkhui listener. No need to mention much about mEnE, by now, she was considered a regular host. We talked about etiquette in sending and replying mails and Mor Maew also shared his experience in how to counter some persistent rumors. You can see a sample of this at Pantip topic with this YouTube video.
Changkhui: 135. Predictably Irrational
1 hour 29 minutes - July 27, 2009
From one of the most famous books that came out in 2008, Predictably Irrational by Dan Ariely. Worawat did all the hard work of preparing information from the book to produce this episode. The book focused on Behavioral Economics. Dan became very famous from the book that he was invited to talk at TED talk. The book were full of interesting experiments so we invited Chalermporn (Ning), Surachai (Chai) and Sutin (Ood) to comment on these experiments.
Changkhui: 134. H1N1 Flu
1 hour 4 minutes - July 20, 2009
An episode born out of a suggestion from our familiar friend on Twitter. So we invited her to join us again, though it's the 1st time she joined us in 2009, mEnE (Twitter.com/mEnE078) was back in this episode. Also, another listener saw what we tweeted so he joined in as well, and that was Ben Philharmonics (http://www.Twitter.com/philharmonic). Since this would be about the current epidemic in Thailand, so we had Zybernav (http://www.Twitter.com/Zybernav) back to share his experience in dealing with it. This Skype conversation was heavily edited, due to very long delay, almost 10 seconds in some instances, on a Skype connection. mEnE and Ben shared how their companies deal with the epidemic.
Changkhui: 133. Webboard Etiquette
1 hour 30 minutes - July 13, 2009
Having read many topic threads on various webboards, I could not help but notice some unspoken rules on some of them. Therefore, we invited 9aum (twiiter.com/9aum) and Ford (twitter.com/FordAntitrust) to share their experiences. Both were webmasters and administrators on http://www.thaithinkpad.com and http://www.thaihi5.com and run their own blogs. The conversation went from the usual problems on webboards to what to do when you were new to the community and went on to touch on some aspects on software and tools selections.
Changkhui: 132. WolframAlpha
1 hour 2 minutes - July 6, 2009
What was WolframAlpha? And who was this Stephen Wolfram? These two questions popped up on my head when I first heard about it in This Week in Tech #195. So we asked Piyatad (Job) and Worawat to do some research for the episode so we could talk about it. This is in reference to the site, http://www.WolframAlpha.com, the computational knowledge engine (as written on the site). The service was good, full of results and we were all impressed and hope to spread some news for this site.
Changkhui: 131.Telecom in Singapore by Adit Harinasuta
48 minutes - June 29, 2009
We are honored to have khun Adit Harinasuta as our guest on this episode. He was once the chief commercial officer at TOT and went on to become the Head of Products and Services at Starhub, Singapore. He gave a somewhat different point of view on having a 3G service, since he had an experience of offering that to Singapore customers. Also, a glimpse of future telecom operators. I have to apologize for the background noise (from my two sons), but that's something I have to live with under the circumstances.
Changkhui: 130. Quad Geeks
1 hour 7 minutes - June 22, 2009
For some reasons, Ood, Job, mEnE, Aum, Tum and Kangg visited my place on June 20, 2009. Some came at the same time, some came alone. Anyway, since Aum and Tum brought along a new MacBook Pro and Kangg had also updated his iPhone to the new firmware 3.0 so we decided to make an episode out of it. Since the content was really going into DualGeek's territory and they would have done a much better job than we did, so we named this episode as a tribute to DualGeek. This was really a Mac-oriented episode.
Changkhui: 129. Naming a Panda
51 minutes - June 17, 2009
Since the baby panda was delivered on May 27, 2009 at Chiangmai Zoo, it had gained some publicity. As part of the job, I had to participate the Panda naming event on Monday June 15, 2009 at Thai Post Convention Hall, Bangkok. The event was meant to narrow down the names of 10,000+ titles to 4. There were some 30 celebrities gathered to help selecting the names. However, there were some doubts about how the voting process was done. So I decided to share what I saw on the day. Thank you Thai Post (http://www.thailandpost.com) and the Zoo Organization for the event (http://www.zoothailand.org).
Changkhui: 128. Google Wave and WWDC 2009 by Koson
46 minutes - June 15, 2009
Koson suggested the idea of talking about Google Wave but I was pre-occupied with my son, so we had to postpone it for a week which fitted nicely with WWDC 2009 schedule. So here we go. We talked about the 2 events and some other events that took place during the week.
Changkhui: 127. Surviving in Crisis by Suphajee Suthumpun
1 hour 14 minutes - June 8, 2009
Suphajee Suthumpun, from IBM Headquarter, gave a speech at the Prachachat event on June 4, 2009. Due to family matter, I had no choice but to use this for the episode. Thank you Prachachat for the invitation and khun Suphajee Suthumpun for her speech.
Changkhui: 126. Design Pai Bon Pai
1 hour 12 minutes - May 25, 2009
We were honored to host one of the first, if not the first, podcasters in Thailand, Wee Viraporn. He was a co-founder of the Dual Geek podcast. A month ago, he launched a new podcast with a different group of friends and listeners, Design Pai Bon Pai (http://www.designpaibonpai.com). The podcast was meant for those in the design industry, with as many as seven founders. We started with Design Pai Bon Pai in mind, but manage to talk about something else along the way.
Changkhui: 125. Sling and Kindle App
52 minutes - May 18, 2009
The last time he was in Changkhui was last year, meaning a very long time ago. As usual, we asked he could share whatever toys or gadgets he had been putting his hands on. So he picked Sling, as from SlingMedia.com and the Amazon's Kindle app on iPhone. Then we talked about something that fit-in in between a notebook and an iPhone; something a netbook had been trying to fill in.
Changkhui: 124. 9aum Strikes Back
39 minutes - May 11, 2009
Not because we mentioned him in the previous episode that he stroke back. But rather he had a story to tell and it made a great timing for him to tell it now. Going back a few years ago, 9aum was working in a company that was arrested for not using copyright software. Things did not turn out to be as bad as it seemed but it was a costly lesson, nevertheless. You may see his blog at ScriptDD.com
Changkhui: 123. 10+2 Recommended Thai to Follow on Twitter by Ford Antitrust
1 hour 5 minutes - May 4, 2009
Ford dropped by at home, so we might as well make an episode out of it. And no buzz word was hotter than Twitter in April 2009, it's everywhere you listened to. Since Ford was quite active himself in Twitter, having 600+ followers and 600+ followings, so we asked who he would recommend. He came up with sugree, markpeak, bact, celerachan, YashimaExteen, mormmam, plynoi, kengggg, rawitat and 9aum. I also added Adamy and iWhale.
Changkhui: 122. iPod by Kangg
1 hour 30 minutes - April 27, 2009
It's been a wonderful experience using iPod for the last three years, so we decided to make an episode out of it. Kangg was, ofcourse, an obvious choice. We talked about what the first iPod was like, how Apple branched out to varieties of iPods and what we thought would happen to Ipod in the future.
Changkhui: 121. ER in April 2009
52 minutes - April 24, 2009
One of our long-time listeners, Zybernav, happened to have a first-hand experience in handling those who were injured during the Bangkok riots in April 9 - 15, 2009. He was a doctor, who volunteered at Narenthorn EMS Center (http://www.narenthorn.or.th). His working location was right at the ground zero and he was there. However, after all that we had heard, the situation at ER was not as bad as we, at least me, as we thought it would be. Since it was still fresh in our memory at the time of our recording, so we decided to launch it in mid-week. You can follow him at twitter.com/zybernav.
Changkhui: 120. AIS vs. DTAC at Prachachat Seminar, part 2
1 hour 24 minutes - April 20, 2009
Banner of AIS and DTAC
Saved by Prachachat (http://www.prachachat.net). It's been a month since the latest episode. Prachachat gave us a recorded seminar, which took place at Khaosod building on October 25, 2007. Wichian Mektrakarn (President, AIS), Sanchai Thiewprasertkul (Chief Marketing Officer, AIS), Thana Thienachariya (Chief Commercial Officer, DTAC) and Dr.Ketchayong Skowratananont (Senior Vice President, DTAC) were all on stage to share their experience on competing with each other. It was a very friendly seminar, considering how they competed against each other in the market. This was the second and final part of the seminar.
Changkhui: 119. AIS vs. DTAC at Prachachat Seminar, part 1
53 minutes - April 13, 2009
Saved by Prachachat (http://www.prachachat.net). It's been a month since the latest episode. Prachachat gave us a recorded seminar, which took place at Khaosod building on October 25, 2007. Wichian Mektrakarn (President, AIS), Sanchai Thiewprasertkul (Chief Marketing Officer, AIS), Thana Thienachariya (Chief Commercial Officer, DTAC) and Dr.Ketchayong Skowratananont (Senior Vice President, DTAC) were all on stage to share their experience on competing with each other. It was a very friendly seminar, considering how they competed against each other in the market. This was the first part of the seminar. We would also be providing the video version sometime later. Lazy, really!
Changkhui: 118. It happened at Prachatai.com
59 minutes - March 16, 2009
Chiranuch Premchaiporn was kind enough to share her experience in dealing with the police on the computer crime matter. She was the web director of the Prachatai.com, the online news website. She was arrested on Friday March 6, 2009. Sarinee, Fringer.org, was kind enough to introduce us to her. We tried look at the matter on the lighter side and hoped everyone who run a web site could learn from this.
Changkhui: 117. Hua-Hin Municipal Wi-Fi
28 minutes - March 9, 2009
After a few upcountry trips, we just managed to have time to record an episode. This time we referred to the event on February 20, the launch of Hua-Hin municipal Wi-Fi service. Also, if you are reading this, please drop us an email if you are interested in supporting us on our new Changkhui shirt. We will be posting some photos in the next few days.
Changkhui: 116. Innovative Warrior, Chalermpon Punnotok
50 minutes - March 2, 2009
The Go Training Live Talk on February 27, 2009, was well received, though with half-full audience. I personally knew one of the speakers, Chalermpon Punnotok, of CT Asia, www.CTasia.com. Since he was in the IT industry and the talk was in line with Changkhui, so we thought it was only appropriate to put it here. If you like a TED-Talk-like seminar, you may want to visit our site for more of the talk.
Changkhui: 115. Everyday Programs
47 minutes - February 16, 2009
It's been a while since the previous episode. One word, slack. Anyway, we are back with some news. First of all, we would like to promote the Go Training Live Talk on February, check www.traininginfomedia.com, in February 27. And then we have another new podcast, Open Chuankhui, at www.onopen.com. And then we discussed about programs we used on daily basis.
Changkhui: 112b. the last of 5 likes / 5 dislikes of 2008
1 hour 35 minutes - January 28, 2009
This was recorded on December 30, 2008. Chalermporn (Ning) called in from Yala to discuss about the topic with Bay and Nok in Bangkok. However, due to high-noise recording, we had to get some help to, at least, make it less painful to listen to. Thank you khun Wit (http://www.polypink.com) for helping us on this. As mentioned on 112a episode, this episode may tire those who had enough of the topic and it could be too personal to some, so you may want to skip this episode, hence a sub-episode, not a full episode. Still, it's a fun episode to listen to.
Changkhui: 114. Zip Car
51 minutes - January 26, 2009
Having listened to the audio book version of "Tuned In" by Craig Stull, Phil Myers and David Meerman Scott, we thought we could make an episode out of one example. Zip Car was mentioned as a Tuned In product. We have never heard of the concept so everyone was given a task to find out more and discussed. In short, this is a community car concept, which is somewhat different from traditional car rental service. For more information, you can visit the http://www.zipcar.com site, and link such as http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Uux8uSRDFK0, can provide a visual explanation.
Changkhui: 113. Alaskan Named Mob
55 minutes - January 19, 2009
As luck would have it, another listener came to the rescue, so we have another episode even though I planned to forego it for this week. Thank you so much. This time, our listener came from Alaska, he was an exchange student there from the AFS program. For the record, I think he is our youngest listener that I am aware of. Mob just came back from a trip to MacWorld 2009 in San Francisco, so he shared his experience during the trip, obviously really had a great time. And now, he yearned for CES 2010.
Changkhui: 112a. Creative Common and CES 2009
1 hour 19 minutes - January 12, 2008
I planned to rest for a couple of weeks due to work and the new project. However, Ford was gracious enough to do some research and contribute, as usual, to this episode. We gave some introduction on Creative Common and its practical use. Then Ford talked about all he could gather from CES 2009 in Las Vegas while he was at Nakornsawan. And this was episode 112a, simply, because we had another episode on 5 likes/dislikes but thought it might be too much for a topic so you might want to skip 112b if you have heard enough of 5 likes/dislikes.
Changkhui: 111. Happy New Year by mEnE
1 hour 11 minutes - December 31, 2008
We enjoyed 5 likes and 5 dislikes so much that we could not stop it. This time, we got mEnE078 to contribute and, mine oh mine, she did not disappoint us. This 23-year-old lady was mature for her age.
Changkhui: 110. 5 Likes and 5 Dislikes by Ford, Phz and Ben
1 hour 56 minutes - December 29, 2008
This was supposed to be another lazy episode for me, since I asked some of our long-time listeners to join the show. This ended up to be one of the longest episodes. We shared the top 5 what we liked and disliked for the year 2008. There was a technical glitch midway into the recorded. Thankfully, Phz pointed out the problem so we managed to correct it but was a little too late for some significant minutes in the recording. Hopefully, the content did make up for it.
Changkhui: 109. Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell
1 hour 7 minutes - December 22, 2008
We intended not to have any more episode for 2008, but a phone call changed all that. We would like to pass along what we shared on the phone. Also, since we both finished Outliers by Malcolm Gladwell so we shared what we had read and what we thought about it. In short, we both enjoyed it. At the end, we shared what we personally liked and disliked for 2008.
Changkhui: 108. Patama Chantaruck, Managing Director, Microsoft Thailand
57 minutes - December 1, 2008
Image of Patama Chantaruck
Prachachart Business was generous enough to invite us to their 3-day annual seminars. Since two of the seminars featured khun Sorakorn Adulyanont as the show host, so we would put those there on our program. We would like to thank Prachachart Business for letting us put this on our podcast, especially khun Sompratana Kraywichian, the editor and khun Cherry Nakjaroen, the reporter. Here was the second day of the seminar.
Changkhui: 107. Anuphong Assavabhokhin of Asian Property
1 hour 35 minutes - November 24, 2008
Image of Anuphong Assavabhokin
Prachachart Business was generous enough to invite us to their 3-day annual seminars. Since two of the seminars featured khun Sorakorn Adulyanont as the show host, so we would put those there on our program. I especially liked the talk provided by khun Anuphong Assavabhokhin of Asian Property, so we decided to put it here. Also, we were getting lazy. He talked about how he prepared to cope with the looming crisis and how much the property business had changed in the last decade. We would like to thank Prachachart Business for letting us put this on our podcast, especially khun Sompratana Kraywichian, the editor and khun Cherry Nakjaroen, the reporter.
Chankghui: 106. Music Innovation 2
1 hour 47 minutes - November 17, 2008
The more the merrier, so the saying goes. And so the episode duration. With four on the episode, this was one of the longest, if not the longest, episodes of Changkhui. Ben was curious after listening to episode 103, so he asked for an encore. We managed to pull mEnE to join and get Phz to share his experience. This was more towards home recording, rather than the innovation side. A rather technical for non-music lovers.
Chankghui: 105. Microsoft's PDC 2008
1 hour 12 minutes - November 10, 2008
Ford was all excited about the Microsoft event that he would like to share it with the audience. This guy deserved to be a brand ambassador or a product manager. The PDC 2008 was Microsoft's equivalence to Apple's WWDC. We both never attended the event, just shared what we heard over various podcasts and from Microsoft's site. This was somewhat an IT hardcore episode.
Chankghui: 104. WiMAX Update and Crowdsourcing
52 minutes - November 3, 2008
We read the Sprint's news on WiMAX rollout in Baltimore with some excitement. It was a good sign, though with some mixed reviews; good on speed but bad on coverage. Then we talked about the latest book we both finished, Crowdsourcing by Jeff Howe. It was one of the best books we have read this year, not that we read that many. Apart from what everyone knew about Wikipedia, the book took us to many different projects where crowdsourcing is applied. A good read, in short.
Chankghui: 103. Music Innovation
1 hour 17 minutes - October 27, 2008
A few posts on our forum triggered the idea for this episode. Our listener, Phz and more at http://www.passionsound.com, shared his expertise in music and sound production. We asked for some software recommendations for beginner, some examples for music purely generated by software and music innovations in recent years. He surely did not not disappoint me. We learnt a few things for the episode. Also, towards the end of the conversations, things turned somewhat personal, but it was in the spirit of the conversation. Hope you all do not mind. We use Amon Tobin, album Foley Room and BT, album This Binary Universe as our samples during the discussion.
Chankghui: 102. Wordcamp Bangkok 2008 and Radiohead Results
1 hour 12 minutes - October 20, 2008
Because both of us went to the event so we could talked about this as our first-hand experience. The event was held at TCDC, Emporium Tower on October 19, 2008. The event was a gathering of Wordpress users in Thailand. It was fun and enjoyable. Full information at http://wordcamp.kapook.com. Too bad, our mEnE wasn't there. She was at her graduation rehearsal. Then we talked about the news release of Radiohead's In Rainbow album. The news did not get as much publicity as it did a year ago. So we would like to make a note of their result and hope to see more things to come along the line.
Changkhui: 101. Apple Pro Day, Bangkok
1 hour 12 minutes - October 13, 2008
mEnE came back by popular demands. This time we talked about the recent Apple Pro Day event on October 9, 2008. I attended the whole event on the first day and it was very enjoyable and a nice surprise on the podcast session, and so we talked about what I experienced on the day. And another topic came up when we came across the 163rd episode on This Week in Tech, when Kevin Mitnick shared his experience at an airport. It gave a very different picture of Kevin Mitnick from the book Take Down. Hope to see more of all on http://www.twitter.com/mene078 and http://www.Twitter.com/hongsyok.
Changkhui: 100. 4 Wired Articles
Image of Changkhui Team on the 100th Episode
1 hour 3 minutes - October 6, 2008
For the 100th episode, we managed to get all founders in the episode, even Koson from New York. We talked about 4 articles from Wired magazine; 1) Driven: Shai Agassi's Audacious Plan to Put Electric Cars on the Road by Daniel Roth, September 2008, 2) Google's Open Source Android OS Will Free the Wireless Web By Daniel Roth, July 2008, 3) Analog Meets Its Match in Red Digital Cinema's Ultrahigh-Res Camera By Michael Behar, September 2008 and 4) Meet Leland Chee, the Star Wars Franchise Continuity Cop By Chris Baker, September 2008.
Changkhui: 99.5 mEnE Ain't Geek
16 minutes - October 1, 2008
We gave some incorrect information about the game Spore, so we decided to correct it by launching this episode. Ford somehow managed to get his Net connection up, but it was barely passable.
Changkhui: 99. A Geek Named mEnE
49 minutes - September 29, 2008
We tried to make a 3-way conference among mEnE, Ford and I, but failed. Somehow Ford had a bad internet connection. So We ended up talking with mEnE only. She prepared the story for the game Spore, we exchanged our view on Chrome and, mainly, on Twitter. The story she told us just showed how geeky she was.
Changkhui: 98. Software License
1 hours 31 minutes - September 22, 2008
Due to his post at http://www.blognone.com about his personal use of copyrighted software license, Ford would like to elaborate more. Now, instead of having just 2 guys talking about computers, it would be more interesting to find a lady geek to help us facilitate the conversation and we had our mEnE to do the job. As should be expected, the topics went from software license to copyrights in songs, fonts, movies and Open Source. It was quite enjoyable and we ended spending 90 minutes talking about it.
Changkhui: 97. Shit Happened
41 minutes - September 15, 2008
Due to hectic schedule, the program was disrupted for two weeks. Passakorn came back to share what he went through during the period. This was more about project management as well as resource management. He had to deliver a product in 15 days, which, in the end, he failed to deliver. The episode was on lessons learnt from the project.
Changkhui: 96. Life in LA by MonoBangkok
37 minutes - August 25, 2008
Having been chatting on MSN for a while, we felt like we could make an episode out of this, so we might as well. MonoBangkok was one of our listeners, who resided in LA for the last 6 years. However, his life there was not on bed of roses. He had to work in a Thai restaurant for 2 years before he could afford a place in a MBA class. It could have been an episode on Study Abroad, but more the content was more on life there rather than on the study part, so we decided to put it here, saving us another episode, too.
Changkhui: 95. iPhone by DTAC and Thailand Next Web Apps 2008
56 minutes - August 20, 2008
As to mark the event, we launched this episode for our 2nd-year anniversary. We managed to get Pakorn, Senior Vice President of DTAC, to share some information about iPhone, what's the big deal of having it in Thailand and when we can see this. We were very thankful for the info. And then we put mEnE, one of our listeners, Kangg (Siampod) and Ford to share their experience at the Thailand Next Web Apps 2008 on August 16, 2008. It was nice to hear such movement in Thailand and hopefully, we would see much more than this at Bar Camp Bangkok 2.
Changkhui: 94. Internet at Work
42 minutes - August 18, 2008
This was supposed to be a four-man episode, but due to unscheduled work, we had to settle with three. Piyatad (Job) was back, sneaking from the back door at home, to join us. We talked about work-life balance at the office. It was getting harder and harder to say which was work and which was not. Also, we talked about the use of Twitter and Job had an idea to use it at work and family.
Changkhui: 93. 3G iPhone Apps
52 minutes - August 11, 2008
We engaged Koson to share his 3G iPhone experience, now that he had it. The usual suspects turned up during the conversation, such as short-battery-life problem and MobileMe, but the apps were nice, and some were even free. We ended our conversation on our appearance on Prachachart Thurakit.
Changkhui: 92. Notebooks 2
1 hour 25 minutes - August 4, 2008
Due to comments on our webboards and, also, lack of creativity on my part, we talked about the notebooks. This time, we focused on monitor, battery, mouse, keyboard, harddisk and power supply. We also mentioned the up-and-coming BarCamp Bangkok 2 (http://www.barcampbangkok.org) on Saturday August 30, 2008.
Changkhui: 91. Being a Manager 2
1 hour 8 minutes - July 28, 2008
Had we known that this would be a popular episode, we would have prepared much more. Obviously, this was recorded directly after the previous episode. As usual, Wiroon prepared a script and everyone contributed accordingly. Again, don't quote us or use this as a guideline, we just shared our experience here.
Changkhui: 90. Being a Manager
54 minutes - July 21, 2008
Having heard a few arguments lately, we decided to share our experiences on this. Facing some difficult staffs, who would like to be managers, but were not qualified, we talked about what kind of qualities we look for when we promoted ones. We would like to emphasize here that not everyone wanted to be a manager and we were not discussing about leadership and manager, either. Nothing ideal or theoretical, we just shared our experiences.
Changkhui: 89. Notebooks
1 hr. 8 minutes - July 14, 2008
In reply to a fan's request, we talked how we went about selecting our notebooks or laptops. We started from what we used and liked and ended up in what criteria we used in selecting one. Also, we talked about the notebook companion, the case. At the end, Passakorn also talked about the latest seminar that he attended at Bank of Thailand, a new process for cheque handling.
Changkhui: 88. Singapore
38 minutes - July 6, 2008
Passakorn went to CommunicAsia 2008 in Singapore a few weeks ago, so he talked about what he saw over there. Worawat, who was, at one time, a frequent visitor, also shared his experience when he went there for training.
Changkhui: 87. Windows
1hr 27 minutes - June 30, 2008
In tradition of bidding farewell to Bill Gates leaving Microsoft, we dedicated this episode on Windows, hate it or love it, this is the most successful operating system in the world. Ford and Passakorn shared their experience and opinion about Windows. It seemed that they got carried away, this was one of the longest episodes of Changkhui, so far.
Changkhui: 86. 3G iPhone
1hr 3 minutes - June 23, 2008
Due to a trip overseas, the show went missing for a week. Also, because of the trip, we could not have come up in timely manner with the launch of 3G iPhone almost two weeks earlier. However, Koson was still able to come up with some materials from the event. We talked mostly about the platform the phone promised and what to expect in the future.
Changkhui: 85. Pizza Boy
33 minutes - June 9, 2008
We had a guest on this episode. Felix was our fan, who lived in Pangan Island. He was the one who paid Passakorn a visit during his stop in Bangkok a month ago. We both read an recommended topic in Pantip.Com and shared comments on this episode. Thank you Felix and hope to host an episode with you again, sometime.
Changkhui: 84. Interent Traffic
46 minutes - June 2, 2008
We went off topic this week. Our friend, Chalermporn or Ning, just came back from Tasmania, so we decided to invite her over to share us her trip experience. She also brought along some photos so we put this episode in M4A format, and you all can view them. Sorry that we were off topic this week, we should be back to normal next episode.
Changkhui: 83. Computer Crime Bill Seminar
2 hr. 5 minutes - May 26, 2008
Once again, we used our corporate resource to our advantage. There was an interesting seminar, organized by UIH (where Passakorn worked with), about Thailand computer crime bill. The issue involved around the log management which would require all enterprises that provided internet access to have a centralized log files. There were six in the panel, there were Mr.Chaiyakorn Apiwathanokul, CSO (Chief Security Officer) PTT ICT Solutions Company Limited, a company of PTT Group, Mr.Kumpol Sontanarat, Director of Information Technology Department – Securities and Exchange Commission, Miss Surangkana Wayuparb Director of Ethical, Legal and Social Impact of Information Technology Research Division / NECTEC, Assoc.Prof.Dr.Sujate Jantarang, President, Mahanakorn University of Technology, Pol.Col.Yanaphon Youngyuen, Department of Special Investigation and Mr. Prinya Hom-Anek, President and Founder ACIS Professional Center. This was an interesting topic and the conversation cleared up a lot of fears, uncertainty and doubts among those who were yet to implement this. Hope it would be useful. Highly recommended to share this among office colleagues.
Changkhui: 82. Tasmania
1hr. 6 minutes - May 19, 2008
We went off topic this week. Our friend, Chalermporn or Ning, just came back from Tasmania, so we decided to invite her over to share us her trip experience. She also brought along some photos so we put this episode in M4A format, and you all can view them. Sorry that we were off topic this week, we should be back to normal next episode.
Changkhui: 81. at MCOT FM100.5
45 minutes - May 12, 2008
Out of the blues, we were invited to air at FM 100.5 at MCOT on the very day we were called. Of course, we obliged. A lot of the stories we talked about were mentioned a few times here and there in our podcasts, but for the major audience of the shows, these should be quite new. Anyway, we would like to thank MCOT for honoring us to introduce ourselves.
Changkhui: 80. Connection 2
44 minutes - May 5, 2008
Recording directly after the previous episode, so the mood of the discussion continued. Ood elaborated more on what he had read from Bundit Uengrungsri book. Surprisingly, Wiroon shined on this episode, and was quite funny. Sorry for the language, it was a little informal and vulgar.
Changkhui: 79. Connection 1
31 minutes - April 28, 2008
Sutin was inspired by an article he read about the power of connection, so he hosted the episode and gathered some friends to share their networking experience. The sound quality was not at its best but the fun should make up for it. Due to the technical reason, we decided to divide the episode into 2 parts to fix the technical problem.
Changkhui: 78. HSPA
33 minutes - April 21, 2008
After a long holiday, we came back with some laziness still sticking on us. A somewhat lazy episode. We talked about the movement on HSPA by AIS and the response from the DTAC. Before diving into the topic, we talked some various issues, such as fan mails.
Changkhui: 77. Lost in Translation
48 minutes - April 7, 2008
Having attending a presentation recently by overseas company, it triggers us to think of the topic. All these presentations could have been much better if they paid more attention on customers background and, also, the Thai culture. We invited our friend, David B. Aldridge to share his experience in dealing with the situation as both a listener and a presenter. We luckily caught him just a few days before he went overseas.
Changkhui: 76. Black Hat
56 minutes - March 31, 2008
We watched the Kapook press conference at http://duocore.ch7.com/xxxkapookcom with great interest. we were quite sure that not many people outside of the IT world would be able to understand the conversation, at least I don't know the term Black Hat that was mentioned a few times in the video. Also with after-press blogs from http://blog.aanthe.com/?p=28 and http://www.prachatai.com/05web/th/home/11656, we decided to talk about what the issue really was and pay more attention to the technical side, rather than the social implications.
Changkhui: 75. SongBuri.Com
36 minutes - March 24, 2008
From the TK Park event on Sunday that we mentioned on previous episode, we met quite a few interesting sites. One of the sites that we were interested in was SongBuri.Com, they were trying to be the musical web portal, they even tried to sell songs back in 2006 and found out the hard way that the business might not be there just yet. We talked to khun Nirun Chaiyadet, Web Application Programmer of SongBuri about the site business. You may want to find out more at http://www.songburi.com
Changkhui: 74. Mix08
57 minutes - March 17, 2008
From Windows Weekly (http://www.twit.tv), we went on to see the event at http://sessions.visitmix.com, this was a MicroSoft Web Developer seminar. We then asked Ford to share his knowledge on MicroSoft's SilverLight. The Keynote was interesting, it featured an interview between Guy Kawasaki and Steve Ballmer (Microsoft CEO). This was a rather technical episode. Also, we were invited by DuoCore (http://www.duocore.tv) to join a seminar at TK Park, Central World, on Sunday March 23, 10:30-12:30. There would be a few Thai internet TV producers there. If you are interested.
Changkhui: 73. Hero Master
52 minutes - March 10, 2008
We first heard about Hero Master from the Manager.Co.Th site, this was a role-playing game developed by three Thai guys, who loved playing games. It was great for the facts that they did get a lot of exposure on IT media, they were mentioned in BlogNone.Com, DuoCore.Tv, BearTai TV and a few other sites, all encouraging. Then a few weeks later, there was a post at DuoCore.TV that they might have to close shop much faster than they had anticipated. What happened, we had to ask. It was the same old story keep repeating itself in different industries, they has to succumb to the power of software piracy. So we invited them over to, at least, give them some exposure and share their thoughts on the situation. You could visit them at http://www.bigbugstudio.com, and our guest on this episode was Warit Achavanantakul.
Changkhui: 72. Angel Investing
32 minutes - March 3, 2008
Intrigued by what we listened from the Entrepreneurial Thought Leaders, Stanford University, iTunes U, we decided to make an episode about it. We referred to the episode on January 23, 2008. Ron Conway, Founder of Angel Investors LP, and Mike Maples, Founder of Maples Investments, talked about their thoughts on their careers. We can't help but think of SIPA projects when they talked about the importance of being at Silicon Valley.
Changkhui: 71. WiMax Trial in the middle of the sea, at Phuket
48 minutes - February 25, 2008
I was away for a week due to heavy workload and I had a video to prove it. I was a part of the WiMax trial team at UIH (http://www.uih.co.th). Our president, Vichai Bencharongkakul took a few press to demonstrate WiMax capability by taking them on a cruise and demo internet connection at 1km away from the beach. Things went well as you could see on the video clip. There were some surprising moments here and there, but all were good. This clip could be a little bit personal but I think it's still fun to watch.
Changkhui: 70. Bar Camp Bangkok 2008
45 minutes - February 11, 2008
Ford attended the Bar Camp Bangkok 2008 on January 26, 2008 at the Indus restaurant, Sukhumvit 26. The event was widely considered a great success, considering the amount of people who turned up and the sponsorship received. Too bad, this went unnoticed from Thai mainstream media. More at http://www.thaicyberpoint.com/ford/blog/id/458
Changkhui: 69. What's Your Degree?
1 hr 7 minutes - February 4, 2008
Inspired by two incidents, we decided to share our experience in seeing people from non-tech degree to perform fairly well in tech field. During an episode at BoagWorld.Com, the interviewee said that the reason she came into web design industry because she was pregnant and out of curiosity, she decided to explore what she could do on the Internet and she was a dancer! Passakorn also witnessed a pretty good technical presentation on computer security from a guy who had a degree in political science!
Changkhui: 68. When to Buy
1 hr 7 minutes - January 28, 2008
This was one episode where we did not really talk about the topic that we intended to. Inspired by Steve Job´s presentation (again) on MacBook Air, Wiroon asked what would trig us into buying a new gadget. Then he talked about what to consider when getting a new computer.
Changkhui: 67. The Wired Article on iPhone
MP3 14MB 29 minutes - January 14, 2008
We talked about the article that was mentioned in Digg, the TWIT podcasts and CNET. The article "The Untold Story: How the iPhone Blew Up the Wireless Industry By Fred Vogelstein" was well-writen and insightful about the creation of iPhone from the business perspective.
Changkhui: 66. Home Media Center and Google 101
54 minutes - January 7, 2008
Koson had been hooking up his place in New Jersey with all kind of media players he could put his hand on. He tried Apple TV, he liked it but was not totally impressed, he had his PS3 player as a Blu-ray player, Wii, HDTV and a few other stuffs, but all in all, he had not finished it yet. So on this episode, he shared in experience in trying these things. We then talked about the story on Business Week a few weeks ago about cloud computing and Google 101.
Changkhui: 65. iQuit 2
56 minutes - December 31, 2007
On this episode, we also talked about being in a "Boss" position and having staffs quitting on their jobs. Some of us also had some of those difficult moments of firing people or being fired ourselves. Simply put, do the best you can do on your jobs.
Changkhui: 64. iQuit 1
58 minutes - December 24, 2007
The episode was released during the New Year period, so we decided to do what a few working people do at this time of the year, we talked about quitting ones' job. Wiroon, Sutin, Worawat and Passakorn shared their experiences in dealing with leaving ones' jobs; the reasons, the real reasons and I-did-not-think-that-this-could-be-a-reason reasons.
Changkhui: 63. Can Factory by Ben
59 minutes - December 17, 2007
Ben, our guest on the 51st episode, came back to share his working experience. He was working at Thai Beverage Can in Saraburi. So he told how cans were produced and issues about cans in general. We felt so grateful for this since Ben was gracious enough to prepare the discussion topics for us. We learnt quite a few things on this episode, such as, always open a can in two-motion; pop and fizz.
Changkhui: 62. Net Neutrality
35 minutes - December 10, 2007
We waited a year until the discussion died down in the USA, then we decided to talk about it, simply because we did not really understand the issue back then. Not that we really understood it now, but we thought we had a fair grasp of the topic. Worawat and Passakorn exchanged their understanding of the topic. If we did not hear much feedback on this, we thought we would steer away from the telecom topics and try something else.
Changkhui: 61. Bittorrent
36 minutes - December 3, 2007
BitTorrent Publisher
Worawat and Passakorn thanked our fans for showing their supports on our webboard. They discussed various issues in VoIP as a carry over from the previous episodes. Then, Passakorn talked about Bit Torrent as he was about to launch Changkhui in BitTorrent.Com.
Changkhui: 60. WiMax Update and Uncle Add
46 minutes - November 26, 2007
Worawat updated the progress of WiMax in Thailand. In short, there was none. We tried to explain what happened during the last few months in Thailand, comparing to the development on the US side. Then we picked a recommended topic in Pantip.com from the Silom community. This post/topic were series written by Uncle Add, a well-known contributor in Silom community, he shared his experience on how he became involved in selling computer in 1972, representing Burroughs. The most interesting part, so far, was how his company, Yip In Soy, managed to beat IBM in the Thai Farmer Bank (the name at the time) project in the early years, when his company virtually had no footprint in the industry. You might want to follow up the story from http://www.pantip.com/cafe/silom/topic/B6072388/B6072388.html (his latest post, with links to previous posts in the thread) and at this blog, http://lungadd.pantown.com.
Changkhui: 59. Working with Thais by David Aldridge
40 minutes - November 19, 2007
Passakorn managed to get a classmate to join a session in Changkhui, he was David Aldridge. He had been in Thailand for some time, had been with a multi-national firm and currently with a Thai firm. He gave us his 2cents on interviewing Thai and working with Thai. We touched a little bit on software pricing in Thailand.
Changkhui: 58. Justice Online by Sarinee Achavanuntakul
24 minutes - November 12, 2007
Passakorn finally had to make a monologue episode, sort of. Due to hectic schedule, we could not arrange any meeting. Instead, khun Sarinee Achavanuntakul, the writer of http://www.fringer.org, gave us a telephone interview about the Justice Online course that we discussed last week. She had her first-hand experience during her years at Harvard. You might want to follow her articles at her blog, at Prachachart Thurakit and at http://www.onopen.com. Finally, we introduced an interesting blog at http://angkul007.wordpress.com. This was written by khun Angkul Artornpathai, a retired policeman. He was quite famous during his hey days. He shared many interesting stories with direct experience. Some were quite scary, in a sense that, yes, justice was only a concept, not a reality.
Changkhui: 57. Last.fm and Justice Online
30 minutes - November 5, 2007
We touched lightly on three different topics; two of our friends are spending more and more time on Nintendo WII and we asked what it was like. Then we invited our fan to share his use of Last.fm, which none of us were using but we thought it was interesting. And at the end, we talked about the content that we saw at http://www.fringer.org, a writer's blog. There was one item that she talked about Justice Online at Harvard. It was a series of lecture given at Harvard university about Justice. It was quite interesting, entertaining as well as educational.
Changkhui: 56. Working in Hong Kong
38 minutes - October 29, 2007
We have a guest. Khun Pisit is a CitiBank manager, who has been working in Hong Kong for a few years. He was an office-colleague of Koson during their IBM days and is visiting Koson in New York, where he is attending a training. This episode is a light episode, only touching on what living in Hong Kong is like.
Changkhui: 55. Helping "Big" and SOA
1 hr 13 minutes - October 22, 2007
Supposedly a direct sequel to the previous episode, but we would like to insert some PR news. Due to the blog post at http://badzboy.10thingsabout.com/archives/195, we would like to make some contribution. The blog owner was one of our fans, who was still working at the RS company. We invited him for a short interview and helped spreading the news. As for the conversation with Koson, he touched on a few more topics such as current programming trends, CEP and SOA. We left it for your judgment for what SOA was.
Changkhui: 54. Grid Computing
50 minutes - October 15, 2007
We crossed the Pacific to talk to our old friend, Koson in New York. Since he worked in Research and Development field, so it was appropriate to let him show us the current development in the industry he was in. This was financial sector. We talked about various topics, and the conversation was quite long. So we divided into 2 episodes. For this week he talked about Grid Computing.
Changkhui: 53. Freshy Ceremony 2
42 minutes - October 8, 2007
A news triggered us to talk about the topic. This was a tradition, carrying on for as long as ones could remember in Thailand to throw a ceremony or a party to new comers especially for first year university students. And every year, things tended to get out of hand, there would be some injuries or sickness caused by such events at various universities throughout Thailand.

Some of the stories were laughing matter now, but surely were not laughing materials when they happened.

Koson managed to get an iPhone for himself, though he was suspicious about it five months ago when we recorded a podcast on the topic. You could say that he was drawn into the dark side.

Hear it for yourself about the experience.
