She sounds like a very smart woman and I hope that she uses her intelligence to better the world.  I am not going to try to pronounce her name, haha.

This is kind of a fun one James Dray . It was fun trying to pronounce her name correctly and at first to determine if she was male or female (or one of 87 other gender bender designations today).

Good morning, James... I had no idea there was an Internet Hall of Fame. And that is quite the distinction for Kanchana to be a member (as well as the first Thai person to use the internet).

Good morning James Dray let's just hope she wasn't also the first person to send spam.

Hi James:

I was not aware there was an Internet Hall of Fame but it certainly seems appropriate she received the honor of being inducted.

It's easy to forget how groundbreaking email was back then. Now we all just take it for granted but few of us could live without it.
