chenla.la landing page, we have a new
web site that now points to this blog. Chenla.la will now provide an
overview of different projects we are working on, some of which we've
already announced and few big ones that will be announced in the next
weeks. All of the content from the old chenla.la site is now hosted
here on chenla.org and can be found through the links on the left.

Since studyhall is designed to be a series of self-directed study
programs that are part of a larger lifetime-learning plan, traditional

times of a person's life with different needs. So what is needed is a
flexible means of covering topics that can be approached at different
times in different contexts.

But actually this is just an excuse to get together, drink beer, show
off our new office (still very much a work in progress), and see how
people might be able to contribute to our menagerie of educational and
real research projects (it's just a shop folks). Did I mention the
beer? See the map on our contact page if you don't where we're
located. If you have any problems call Brad 010 628 234.

The full breadth of what we are working on is somewhat difficult to
grok at times. This organizational chart shows all the different
pieces of how Chenla and our commerical sister company Repozit I/O fit
together should help. Some of the items in the chart haven't been
publically released yet. All will be revealed in good time.

finally managed to
lease a building here in Phnom Penh. We had been promised a building
last year by persons who shall not be named. But the national

haven't seen it. Here is the YouTube video of Engelbart's famous

Studyhall Slide Deck on our Downloads page.
This will be the primary presentation that we will be using when
pitching the Studyhall. This took a suprisingly large amount of work

time, so expect it to change from time to time. As always, feedback

Remember. I will have more to say about her book when I'm finished,
but I wanted to mention a the CD3WD project which she wrote about in
the book. Newitz described CD3WD as something that could potentially
