Кұрметті оқушылар! I want to let you know about a very cool project in the Central Asian blogosphere that I had the honor to participate in: neweurasia’s book project, CyberChaikhana: Digital Conversations from Central Asia. The book is an edited compilation, a sort of ‘contemporary history’, of the region from the perspective of its digital youth.
Despite their best editorial maneuverings, an excerpt one of my earliest posts was selected for the Kazakhstan chapter. The book is available in both English and Russian, and contains a lot of fascinating writing, most more substantial than the musings on sidewalks and football you find here in Molapse. A hearty молодец! to everyone there for their great work, and to the Hivos organization for sponsoring it.
