About The Yak Whisperer


(Photo: Rain-soaked yak and handler by DeeDee)
The Yak Whisperer is a journal of my travels to Mongolia.  Or at least it will be when I get there.  Or more likely, when I get back.  You may find some
SPOT GPS updates here

I bought the domain name from a failed Kleiner-Perkins productivity-enhancing social-networking unified messaging cloud infrastructure SaaS virtual distributed open source crowdsource system that was, alas, ahead of its time.  Possibly by several centuries.  Despite the obvious nascent demand for the local nomadic culture to increase the size of their online ecosystem, it seems that without access to high-speed broadband, Mongolia's generation Z is going to build their social network by traveling by camel and actually meeting in person.  As if that's scalable.  

All I can say is their loss is our gain.  

Tune in again tomorrow, won't you?

Or as they say in Mongolia: Namaste, dude.

Hello Mr Yak Whinston,

My name is PRINCE JOHNSON MOYO (Jnr) the elder son of PRINCE DENNIS MOYO, of the republic of Zimbabwe. This might be a surprise to you as to how I obtained yourinterwebs. I obtained your contact from the chamber of commerce of South Africa in Johannesburg and they said that you were a very well good Venture-backed social interweb company of many fortunes and better than that Orkut crap from Google.

During the war against the farmers in Zimbabwe, supported by President, Robert Mugabe has ordered the farmers to give their farms to his members of the party. My father was one of the most successful farmers in our country, and had been the Minister of Finance in Robert Mugabe's administration, but he did not like the idea of dispossessing farmers of their land. For this, his farm was invaded and burned by the government. In the assault, my father was killed, and the invaders made away with many articles of the farm of my father including a very good nespresso machine and several cases of diet root beer, which is very rare in our country.

Before the death of my father, he called me to the attention of the sum of US$18.2 Million United States Dollars (plus tips), which he had deposited with a Security Company here in South Africa, during his tenure as minister of finance. I decided to get in touch with your company, so that you will help me in the transfer of this money from South Africa into a safer VC investment, preferably something with a SaaS/Cloud angle to it and none of that enterprise stuff.

We (my sister and I) proposed that you should receive 20% of the amount for your help in the transfer, then 75% of this money shall go to us, 5% remaining will be used to redesign our website to get rid of Adobe Flasher once and for all. (Let Mugabe keep the Flasher, we are going HTML5 and it rox.)

Would you immediately confirm your interest in this transaction through my Mobil line; +27-73-232-7570 then
I will give you more details as to how we shall conclude this transaction. In case you may have no interest you can refer me to your VC investors (except not those whiners at Kleiner). That would be quite helpful to our cause.
Thank you for your help.
