Quick policy to control Social Media – Internet censorship in Thailand

A couple of days back, I could not open my Google Apps email URL. This had never happened to me with Google services before. Then I quickly changed my subdomain to the main domain, and surprised to see my personal website cum blog has been blocked by MICT (Thai Ministry of Information and Communication Technology). However, the next morning I could successfully login back again. This was the case with HTTP URL protocol only, because I could still access mails via email clients in iPhone and Microsoft Outlook 2010.

As of now, Internet Censorship in Thailand is limited to website access only. By 2012, Thailand will most probably follow the current practices of China and India and require that the major international companies offering search and communications place servers for Thai users inside of Thailand ~ quoted.

Understanding LEACH Protocol in Wireless Sensor Networks

LEACH, Low-Energy Adaptive Clustering Hierarchy, is an application-specific protocol architecture for Wireless Sensor Network (WSN). It has become one of the bases for developing new architecture protocols or modifying the existing one in WSN.

It is an adaptive and self-organizing protocol that minimizes the energy consumption in WSN. The underlying idea behind LEACH is the use of randomized rotation of the aggregators so that energy dissipation is shared evenly among all participating sensor nodes. LEACH is suitable only for smaller networks where Cluster Head Nodes communication with Base Station (BS) directly, that’s why we use LEACH in each independent cluster-like networks.

While I keep updating this article, here is my current presentation about Understanding LEACH protocol.

Analysis of AIT’s web services & related technical suggestions

Since long AIT’s main website has been one of the best to demonstrate worst examples in design and related web services classes in AIT itself, seems like even professor’s couldn’t suggest the people behind the website.I had compiled a list of pitfalls and bad design points of the AIT website, namely ait.asia, back in my first semester; and after attending my forums (later CLIQ’s ones) I thought everything gonna be alright with time. But it remained the same after all. So, I’m not only going to figure out problems, but also related solutions from my technicalities (and maybe sometimes my suggestions are limited to my knowledge), hope it will be some betterment.

Website update, btw what’s that? This article doesn’t talk about why AIT’s website is not updated at large(sorry about that.) Continue reading

10 Myths of Modern AIT

Disclosure: This article was scheduled to be published on October 23rd 2011, but since we had to evacuate AIT after the disastrous Thai Flood that ultimately inundated our AIT mother campus; it was kept in draft. And now, I finally decided to public it. AIT, now after flood, has got another big opportunity to grow in huge the campus infrastructure and the environment even better than previous. Hope some points in this article can account for the improvements.

Based on my experience of AIT, I have prepared 10 modern myths of modern AIT. Most of the points are based on what I did expect before coming, even before being accepted to admission and what actually I found here, what many of the students find here. These are randomly list, not prioritized in any order. 10 Modern Myths of AIT (unexpectables?) is my personal experience and believing, AIT’s different (show your love).

AIT is Different!

Spread the word: Innovation and motivation; image from AIT's facbook pageAsian Institute of Technology, popularly AIT, is very popular in our part of the world. Every good student wants to earn a prestigious degree from AIT. There are many fields of studies among three schools in AIT namely, School of Engineering and Technology (SET), School of Environment, Resource and Development (SERD) and School of Management (SOM). On this blog post, I’ve managed to quote (tho’ very few) expressions about and its uniqueness;as told in various orientations and school interaction with the students including the forums.

AIT is not like any other university. This is not where you come, attend classes, give exam and pass away. This is something totally different. What is different you have to come and realize being an asset of AIT or I’ll share over coffee (really it’s secret)
