Poster boy is a Blogger ... Local bloggers have waited quite a while for a time when Shar101 would start a blog of his own. I was there at the National Press Club in Jalan Tangsi when he finally did. See his debut posting here; I have never seen anyone got more comments for a non-post!
In his latest posting Class Registration, however, 101 holds back little in ticking off the Information Minister for still trying to register bloggers (this time by making them classify themselves as "pros" and "non-pros") when the PM has already said the Government will not do so [here].
Professional politician, amateur politician. Zam's proposal has reached faraway shores. ABC Radio Australia journalist Corrine Podger interviewed me on the phone this morning and asked me about the pro/non-pro idea. I said bloggers may agree to it if politicians , Zam included, agree to the same classification.
I was told the interview will be aired tomorrow morning on Connect Asia. If they can't get a feedback from Zam's ministry, you'll probably be listening to me on Wednesday. Go to www.radioaustralia.com, then follow the links to Connect Asia.
