The move to Saigon was smooth & uneventful. Hanoi was fine, but if I want to develop www.RealisticScenarios.com (which I do), then Saigon is a better choice. I have a much better network down here — and I just wasn’t able to meet the right kinds of people in Hanoi.
I am set up in the Thao Dien section of District 2, Ho Chi Minh city. https://goo.gl/maps/i9ow5ezC2GoMJvdF7
It’s a foreigner area — kind of artsy & hipster. Like the Williamsburg of Vietnam, I guess. I usually avoid that kind of expat ghetto — but this move is more about business. That’s why I wanted to go to Hanoi first — because I knew that the minute I got down to business I wouldn’t be doing anything cultural.
I’m still wrestling with technology here, but I have my own router in this apt so speeds are much better — esp if I set up in the “dining area”. So I’m that guy now — the one with an office in the kitchen. I’m uploading more youtube videos, so I really need the speed. I was considering a shared office space (The Hive is the big one here), but hopefully I will be able to avoid the expense until I need it for meetings or video production.
Ok. Working now. These are the vids I’ve been playing with. Prototype only, but this is the kind of content I’m working with. https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCEQ2kRCJ1iAZl9UcKsy3kzg/featured?disable_polymer=1
