James Do (Đỗ Bá Phước) was active from the the early days of Unicode when he worked to shape the encoding of both the Latin-based Quốc ngữ script now used in Vietnam, as well as the traditional Hán (Literary Chinese) and Chữ Nôm. He brought together Vietnamese experts in Hán and Chữ Nôm to facilitate Vietnamese participation in the IRG. He worked tirelessly in Vietnam and overseas to promote the adoption of Unicode. He co-founded the Vietnamese Nôm Preservation Foundation as part of his long-term interest in making the largely untranslated corpus of traditional Vietnamese literature in Hán and Nôm, and the cultural legacy it contains, available to students around the world in digital form. James was also interested in the sustainable development of Vietnam through improved education, to which end he helped found the Pacific Links Foundation. James moved from California back to Vietnam in 2007 to work as CTO of InfoNam Inc. until his passing on January 10, 2015.
