Have you checked with the good folks at APNIC - the Asia Pacific Network
Information Center <[log in to unmask]> ? If something exists, they'll likely
know about it. There is a technical network operations list for
Asia-Pacific, but it does not cover the more general IT topics you seem to
be inquiring about.
It seems likely (and preferable) that you could find a willing host
somewhere *in Asia*, but if you cannot, and you believe there is sufficient
interest, we would be willing. We've hosted numerous lists over the years
(and still do) for efforts to build country-specific, and regional,
But as this is not relevant to the AFRIK-IT folks, please reply to me
privately if you'd like to follow up on this.
