Mahmood Al-Yousif · January, 2006

Mahmood's Den, my blog, has taken a life of its own over the years. Credited with being one of the first blogs to emanate from the Arab region, certainly from Bahrain, and whose intention at first was simply to test content management systems technologies, it has mushroomed beyond the original intent. I would like to think that through it some contribution to rapprochement between East and West has occurred, and judging by the various discussions it witnessed and the frayed tempers it calmed or fueled, good exchange has happened through it. As for me personally, I own and run a company specialising in the supply of broadcast technologies and services to customers in Bahrain, Saudi Arabia and Kuwait.
