I'm new to this list, and very excited to see that what I have been
wanting to do
for the last five years now has a name
After working the SF bay area until 2001, I started traveling
while writing Java (now mostly Ruby/Rails) code for a living.
But I am getting tired of working alone.
I'd like to find places for coworking in Southeast Asia. In particular,
I am going

What would you be worried about before booking a flight to a 3rd world
to do this?
Any thoughts for a discussion would be highly appreciated
And, more generally, anyone else out there who has gone international?
