Indonesia: Defence Minister's Blog

Unspun is glad that the Indonesia's defence minister's blog is attracting global attention. The blogger links to couple of international blogs that are talking about the minister's blog. “At any rate I am glad that Juwono, if nothing else, is helping through his blog to help dispel an image that Indonesia is in the backwaters and its ministers are all banana republicans. Perhaps, in time, the World Bank would not be so easily “shocked” by an Indonesian minister taking to blogging.”
