Content Since my previous posts Travel Stationary Geek and A Process for Travel Journaling, I thought I'd share an update on the collection of Traveler's Notebooks I've so far accumulated. Seven x 32 sheet notebooks, one for each country and a larger 64 sheet notebook for Hong Kong and Macau. I've also got a number of the Passport sized Traveler's Notebooks which are still fulfilling their functions as daily journals and for holding useful information.

For the sixteen month period that we're currently spending in East Asia, these notebooks will be all. In the middle of April, Linh and I are making our last trip to China and I've got a blank notebook for that. All the notebooks will eventually sit inside the four Traveler's Notebook folders you can see in these photos.

Content Following my previous post Travel Stationary Geek, my travel journaling is coming along nicely (if a little behind), with my efforts to document our East Asia travel experiences happening both on and offline.

In July, Linh and I went to Taipei and Seoul. The trips adds a further two countries to our visited list that includes Vietnam and Japan, as well as Hong Kong (and Macau). So I've bought another two Traveler's Notebooks as I use a 64 page book for each country in which to keep any ephemera.

Content Last week, I went to a lecture at Asia House, on Hong Kong design given by Douglas Young, founder of Hong Kong's successful lifestyle store, Goods of Desire (G.O.D). A controversial figure, he and a number of his store staff were arrested then aquitted for his "triad gang" T-shirts.

He then launched the "Delay No More" concept on a number of products such as tshirts. "Delay No More" spoken in a Cantonese accent pronounces as a particularly rude insult.

Content I've just returned from a two week trip to the west coast of the USA and having uploaded a whole pile of photos to Flickr, am spending some time reflecting on the visit. I plan to post miscellaneous (post-visit) observations in the near future, if anything, to remind myself about the things that made me think, smile, confused and bemused.

I've never covered so many miles within the relatively short time frame, having travelled between Las Vegas, Palm Springs, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. Whoever said the Americans love road trips, weren't kidding!

Content Although I've been working in the web industry for nearly a decade, its only within the last couple of years that I've really looked into web blogging technologies and set up my own blog sites. I've had a simple static website before, and typically, its my own site that is the last to be updated.

Sure, (even without a blog) as digital consultants, we can advise our clients on the world of blogs. But "doing" leads to knowledge. And "knowledge" is power, as they say.
