So, this happened…
Grabbed a photo with Tun Dr. Mahathir and Tun Dr. Siti Hasmah at the ASEAN bloggers conference. Got the chance to talk with Datuk Seri Najib as well.
Both men spoke at length about the Internet as a medium for political discourse and their shared view that it should be used “responsibly”.
Datuk Seri Najib seemed to suggest that the government wouldn’t censor, in the way that we’ve become accustomed to them doing with broadcast and print media, but would continue to use defamation and libel laws to clamp down on those who blog “irresponsibly”.
*Pause for effect*
I got nothin’!
