Air Asia boss lets fly his CEO blog. One of Malaysia's favourite sons started to blog quietly a few days before Merdeka. Tony and I first met in a cigar divan, but neither of us smoking any, to talk about his dream of Air Asia. I had one foot in Business Times and the other in Malay Mail then, and I loved underdogs. He grew big in no time at all, a tribute to his entrepreneurial spirit.
Some weeks back, Tony asked me if I'd help set up his blog and Air Asia's blog. I took that as a great compliment. Regretfully, though, I told him I would have to decline. I did give him my two cents' worth here and there. And my moral support. I hope those helped.
Malaysia's blogosphere has come a long way, despite the various obstacles posed by the authorities. Tony's The Entrepreneur is a major landmark.
Now every CEO can blog.
