Overview of the conference.

I must admit I was just as shocked as everyone when I was told Tuoi Tre News (TTN) would have to shut down along with the Vietnamese language version. Although I knew the shutdown was only a few months, it was surprising how much it had become a part of my life. I didn’t realize how much I would miss TTN. Sniff…where’s the hanky?

Other times I … [Read more...] about Did ya miss us?
