Wow, some developments are seriously taking place in the Malaysian Blogosphere.
At the 1st gathering/meeting of Malaysian bloggers, they’ve apparently elected a pro-tem committee already. There are lots of movements right now, which is really interesting. It’ll be fascinating to see how and if the blogging community can be mobilised to institute real change, at least in being influential opinion leaders in the socio-political scene. Will this be the 4th Estate, a powerful determining voice that politicians must listen to?
There’ll be a Bloggers United Malaysia Gathering on the 19th May as well, so I read… here. (that’s a day before my birthday hint hint) To be held in conjunction with World Press Day on the 3rd May. I think this will be a massive gathering, first of its kind. All sorts will turn up. A defining event.
What will Malaysia’s Blogging Scene look like in a year from now? Will politicians clamp blogs down? Will they debate it in Parliament? Will they require strict registration, and will this curtail freedom of speech on the web?
