| the 10 minute segment on VTV.  I know several 
| of the guys featured on the program including 
| An Nguyen of SaigonLUG and Professor Son from

| source community is starting to grow in 
| Saigon but it still has 5-10 years to mature.  
| It is definitely more active then 5 years ago 
| which is very positive.
