Tiyung Dayak – “The Sour Dayak Apple” in Bidayuh Politics

For the Greater Glory of Bidayuh Politics

To Blog or Not To Blog?

What’s the point of having advanced ICT facilities if we don’t use it appropriately?

I’m very impressed with the advancement of ICT technology in Malaysia. Year after year we would see progressive improvement. Two to three years ago, I came to know about the word “Blog”, but then I didn’t pay much attention to it – until recently! The “Blog” can be considered as an “electronic notice board/forum” for e-community (or bloggers/blogoticians) – where we can exchange any kind of relevant information on the spot. Most of the time, in order to get the happenings all over Malaysia and the world, I will move my mouse to the URL (Uniform Resource Locator), and then my fingers will quickly do the typing!

Nowadays, blog sites are alternative source of getting information that is free from “contamination”. Most of the bloggers are responsible individuals in transmitting/disseminating whatever information that they produced (just to name few blog sites such as Malaysia Today, Swisserikin, TBS Bidayuh, Goldart and Wong Ho Leng’s blog sites, and thanks to our e-friends in here for kindly let us know about it!).

From my observation, I found that the non BN guys are quite advanced and yet aggressive in terms of ICT awareness and usage compared to BN guys. This could be due to the “hardship” faced by people like Wong Ho Leng and the like in getting their voice to be heard in cyber space. The ruling government controls all sort of mass and electronic media, remember? I do remember at one time that Wong Ho Leng is active at Randau Ruai. And now, that Britong-like forum is long gone! I have tried my best to find it but to no avail. I wonder where the Ibans are doing their electronic political gathering right now…

And how about the Bidayuh politicians? Does anyone out there know where to get those Bidayuh politicians’ personal blog sites? I would appreciate it, as I would like to pay them e-visits. Or is it that the Bidayuh politicians are too busy with their personal businesses and have no time to create one? Or, should we wait to pay them e-visits at the very last minute whenever the next state election is just days to go, as in the case of www.warkahuntukpm.com.my, which was launched last Saturday?

Is blog not part of today’s effective communication methods in blogoticking/cyber politicking? And from such blog, one could assess the minds of those politicians from a distance. For sure, “rapid strike” in Sun Tzu’s Art of War is still relevant today…

Another point to ponder, uh?!

[I heard someone is sighing over there, lamenting “Ya oh… I should get a SAINS guy to help me set up my blog! Otherwise, I’ll lose this coming election. No winning means begging again…” (Sighing again…)]
