I was invited back to BFM Radio as a guest on their Hard Tech show with Mei Ying (@meiyingt).
The topic of our discussion is the latest social network that has got everyone in a tizzy – Google+. Listen to the interview on the BFM website: Hard Tech: Google+. I’ve also mirrored a copy of the interview here, so you can listen with the audio player above.
P.S. I have some Google+ invites. If you want them, tweet me (@blogjunkie) your Gmail address. First come first served!

Yours truly was quoted in The Star regarding the MCMC block of file sharing websites:
The online file-sharing community remains active despite the Government’s move to block 10 such websites to curb piracy.
Blogger and online marketing consultant David Wang said most users simply moved on to other websites offering the same facilities and services to download content.
“Users can also continue using the blocked websites by getting around it in a few simple steps,” he said.
Wang, who published a blog post titled “What is a DNS (Domain Name System) block and three ways to get around it” following the Government’s ban against the websites, said IT expertise was not necessary to gain access.
Read the full article on The Star Online.
Some nitpicks with the first sentence of the article – I think it would have been more accurate to say that “online file sharing activity remains active”. The reasons for the block is clearly following the official line from the Government and doesn’t accurately reflect why web users circumvent the blocking i.e. to bypass censorship.

Yours truly was quoted in the New Sunday Times today in an article called Blogging, so yesterday. The article title is not really accurate though, since both Julian and I say quite definitively that blogging is here to stay and not going away. I’m very humbled by the opportunity and I think it’s pretty awesome to be quoted an article together with Kenny Sia and the super-smart Julian Hopkins.

Yours truly was a panelist on The Digital Edge Podcast (Episode 26). We talked iPads (I’m bullish), PM Najib Razak’s social media strategy (decide if you want to be in or out) & Maxis’ 1Store mobile app store (what a half-assed effort).
