Atok Siber

Blogging program on 9. A blogger made that rare appearance on Malaysian tv yesterday, thanks to TV9*.

Pak Idrus, 68, who has been blogging since 2004, appeared in the hour-long Live Program called "Atuk Siber" or "Cyber Grandpa". Together with his grandson, Pak Idrus spoke about the digital divide and the generation gap, "and of course on blogging, a subject which is close to my heart". (Go to Pak Idrus' In passing - Malaysian to read more about the program.)

Kudos to TV9, for making this important step to try and bridge a divide.

* TV9 is part of Media Prima, which owns 43 per cent of NSTP (which is probably the only newspaper company in the world that has resorted to suing bloggers for defamation).

Bro, please dont stoop so low and end the entry with editorial remarks such as 'NST is probably the only newspaper that has resorted to suing a blogger' because it eats away at your credibility,

they sued you for personal vendetta, if you had published those articles in print, they would still have sued you

you remark is cheap and unnecessary

Tahniah Pak Idrus atas gigih anda. Panjang umur, semua akan ke usia Pak Idrus juga. Rocky tidak terkecuali. Saya juga begitu.

Rocky masih berbunyi tentang mungkin negara ini saja ada newspaper saman blogger.

Saman blogger dalam hal-hal tertentu, sama juga macam kerajaan saman majalah. Sama juga macam pensyarah UIA saman menyaman suatu masa dulu. Sama juga macam dengan Wee yang kini sedang mengatur langkah.

Kita saman bila kita rasa "tercedera" dengan tindakan yang diambil oleh pihak berkenaan.

Secara umum, saman menyaman adalah milik orang kaya. Orang miskin tidak mampu sebab saman ada KOS.

Selamat Raya Puasa Enam.
