Bali, one of the most beautiful and culturally rich areas I had visited so far, appears to be attracting entrepreneurs, too.
“Bali has all the core ingredients to build a business, but most people would never think that, especially when it comes to technology,” Andrea Loubier of the U.S. said in a BBC story, noting that internet speeds here rival many developed nations.
Along the same lines, Peter Wall co-founded Hubud (“Hub-in-Ubud”) as a high-tech shared work space.
“When you think about Bali, you think about vacation, but I think as more and more of our lives change from, ‘This is my working life,’ to, ‘This is my home life or this is my working life or this is my travelling life,’ it’s all getting mashed together now,” he told the BBC.
Of course, the article also includes a section about Bali’s monkey troubles.
“Once in a while we get a monkey that comes by,” Wall said. “That doesn’t happen in a lot of other places.”
