Last week I finalized the proposal to encode the Avestan script which I had a lot of fun working with Roozbeh on. I also helped put together a proposal for a Bopomofo character (with Andrew West) and a proposal for eight more Arabic characters with Roozbeh again and with his wife Elnaz.

This week, I’m wrestling with Old Cyrillic and Meitei Mayek.

Trying to figure out how all this blogging works, I’ve found myself to figure in other people’s blogs…. James Seng, for instance, blogged about having dinner with me in January 2005! In fairness, it was a splendid Thai dinner, and it was a pleasure to spend some time with James… and get driven a bit around Singapore in James’ rather nice car.

Nice memories, though. I’m grateful to him for putting me in touch with the UNDP about the Afghanistan project. In many ways, that opened the door to some other interesting work I’ve done.

Some people have said I should blog. Well. Let’s see. I don’t know if I am much of a diarist. But let’s see.
