My friend Chad, who is a freelance reporter living in Jakarta, Indonesia is in Jogjarkarta, about ten miles from Mount Merapi, reporting on it's impending eruption. He has set up a blog, and is making his first foray into Net journalism. He's in the process of setting up a Paypal tip jar to help with his expenses. Stop by, and if you can, help him out.
Also, check out Trish Anderton's personal blog about life in Jakarta. An amazing writer and reporter.
There's a new update on the Chad's volcano blog.
I'm trying to help him get a Paypal button set up so he can take donations for his work.
Until then, stop by and leave some comments and encouragement.
