an ethnic group living in the provinces of Yünnan and Szechwan (People’s Republic of China). They number 143,000 (1953 census). The language of the Nasi belongs to the Tibeto-Burmese group. Their religions are lamaism and shamanism, with vestiges of more ancient beliefs (particularly the cult of trees). The main occupation is the cultivation of rice and corn. The Nasi have retained a distinctive material culture in their timber-frame dwellings and their clothing.

NASI

(1) (NetWare Asynchronous Service Interface) A protocol from Novell for connecting to modems in a communications server. It was derived from the NCSI protocol. NASI provides more advanced features than the common int 14 (interrupt 14) method. It allows a specific modem or line to be chosen. It frees the call more quickly, and it transfers data more efficiently.

(2) (National Association of Systems Integrators, Falmouth, MA, www.nasi.us) An organization founded in 1991 that maintains and sells computer industry mailing lists. For example, in 2004, for the advertised price of USD $7,995, NASI offered a contact list of 40,000 system integrators and VARs.
