Upcoming Events, West Coast Edition

Well, an event and a bit more.

Uzbekistan’s Ambassador to the United States, Abdulaziz Komilov, will be speaking here in Seattle tomorrow night at the University of Washington. His speech is titled, “Uzbek-American Relations in the Context of Uzbekistan’s Regional Policy.” I am sure that I will be briefly speaking him and his wife (Gulnora Sharofovna Rashidova), though it will be as a member of the university community, so I will have to refrain from asking anything that might cause any official Uzbek unhappiness with Registan.net to be transferred to the university. For a full announcement on this event, see below.

Second, if you have not already visited Global Voices Online this week, go check out the redesigned site. It rocks pretty hard. Go check out the Central Asia & Caucasus section and play around with the maps.

An added bonus to visiting GVO is that you are more likely to see my work there nowadays. Between finishing up things at school and looking for a job, I am absolutely swamped. Of course, you are more than welcome to help me free up some time by helping me find a job. (My resume is here — PDF.) I’m also not above accepting bags of money, preferably the natural cotton kind with big dollar symbols on them 🙂

Why not just ask him why Registan was blocked, and if the block has or will be lifted? It shouldn’t embarrass the university. He probably will say he doesn’t know. But who knows, maybe he’ll say something specific that you can report…
