New Mandala readers keen to follow different arguments around the current patent brawl will find contributions from two of the best Thailand-focussed blogs particularly useful.

  • Thailand Jumped the Shark‘s combative approach finds fresh material in a thorough deconstruction of Tulsathit Taptim’s recent The Nation op-ed. The comments that follow are also very much worth reading.
  • The Lost Boy (who is, by the way, worth regular visits) provides his thoughts from a very different perspective. He also has some important commentary on the controversial website (which cannot reportedly be accessed from Thailand).

As always, New Mandala reader reactions to this evolving story are very welcome here.
