Dispatches from Southeast Asia on construction, transport, and infrastructure
Introducing a new section of the Future Southeast Asia Newsletter. This week features Dubai in Danang, a rail bridge to Samui, and LED lights of Southeast Asia.
Hello Future Southeast Asia readers! This week I am launching a new section of the newsletter - Dispatches from Southeast Asia. The current format is that I publish a minimum of one article a week at futuresoutheastasia.com and a free weekly news roundup in this newsletter. This format will remain unchanged.
When I first started publishing the newsletter it was once a month, and even then it was thin on content. As my news curation system has grown, so too has the amount of information I collect every week.
I am now at the point where there is more than enough news to publish every week. This news roundup is also taking longer to edit, so I will make the weekly news roundup just for news links, and remove comments and editorials.
The new section is going to be a weekly or fortnightly post for paid subscribers. It will feature thoughts and observations from the road, and editorial about construction, transport, and infrastructure in Southeast Asia. It will include blog-style reports about my research trips around Southeast Asia, while sticking to the main theme of the site
I don't know what it will become yet, or when and how often to publish, but I know that I need to start writing it to find out. I saw this Tweet recently which summed up what I mean…
I know that once this section gets started it will evolve and show its future format.
One of the reasons I started this site was that I couldn’t find a site that writes about what I want to read about. I want to continue that with this section of the newsletter.
I have a lot of notes for future article ideas, some of which may never come to fruition. Some notes probably don't warrant a full blog post either, so they will fit in this newsletter section of collected thoughts. I will use this writing as an anvil for ideas, where I can hammer out concepts for future writing.
The topics for this first edition include the Dubai of Danang, thoughts on a rail bridge to Koh Samui, and the spread of LED lighting on skyscrapers in Southeast Asia.
