My blog Screenshots focuses on governance issues in convergent technologies, public administration and media operations in Malaysia, trying to make sense of our strategies and efforts in propelling the country into a developed nation. It's a “tough love” affair as I have to balance reasons and rationale with straight talking. I am getting the impression that this blog has helped bring fellow Malaysians, domestic and overseas, and the global community into engaging conversations about world peace and striving a better future for all.
