 I certainly would like to meet Denisa when she's here,
 
though I have followed the diybio movement in some way, I'm not aware of people in the region doing this as yet, but I could ask around,
 
I copy Sunit Shestra who is well connected in thailand and may have some ideas, and ARthit, both in cc: John berns is the regional barcamp organizer and may also forward to jan delefsen of the bangkok hacklab (I don't seem to have jan's email)
 
all of these people also have facebook accounts
 
thanks bryan for putting us in touch
 
Michel

Hello Denisa. I think that Michel Bauwens might be your best contact
for that region. Michel, is there anyone in these areas that you can
point Denisa towards? You should both meet, too.
