About

Mae Mai was the title of a blog that I frequently used between 2002 and 2005.  It was probably the one blog that had most of my interesting thoughts on a variety of subjects.

The phrase, Mae Mai (Thai: แม่ไม้), is from Muay Thai (Thai kickboxing) and designates the “Master Tricks” or major moves of the discipline (as opposed to the Look Mai or “Complementary Tricks”).  The term literally translates as “wood mother” or “Mother of the woods.”
