Class registration

Now that NUJ is strongly for the formation of All-Blogs, I wonder what will be our latest Tokoh Wartawan says on these. This is the second time Norila Mohd Daud the president of National Union of Journalists (NUJ) said about All-Blogs. First was during the world press freedom day and the latest was yesterday at the world Press Freedom Day 2007 forum as reported by the star today.

NUJ backs bloggers alliance
PETALING JAYA: The National Union of Journalists (NUJ) supports the formation of the National Alliance of Bloggers (All-Blogs), said its president Norila Mohd Daud.

She was speaking at the World Press Freedom Day 2007 forum Bloggers: New Breed of Journalists or Online Journal Keepers? at Menara Star here.

“It shows their seriousness in carrying out responsible blogging,” she said in an interview later.

The NUJ also supported All-Blogs because it cared about press freedom and issues pertinent to nation-building, she said.

A group of bloggers met last month to form All-Blogs and the drafting of its constitution would be finalised for submission to the Registrar of Societies, said its pro tem vice-president Jeff Ooi.

Forum speaker Ooi said bloggers have not elected themselves as journalists but may have broken news by accident.

He said that according to Technorati, which tracks 55 million bloggers worldwide, only a minority of bloggers addressed current issues.

The most blogged topic was food, followed by technology, politics and subsequently public relations, he said.

The progress of ICT had changed the way people got their news, no longer only from newspapers but also online, PDAs and mobile phones, said Ooi.

Another panel speaker, human rights lawyer Malik Imtiaz, said bloggers played a critical role in nation-building by providing valuable information on how things worked.

Freedom of expression, however, did not mean one could go around slandering others, Malik said.

Star Online editor Raslan Sharif said that while journalists and bloggers had a role to play in bringing up important issues that affect society, the public also needs to be more involved.
“The people need to rediscover their voice,” he said.


Have a wonderful week end friends,

You have a clone blog sister by the name of ‘Nora’ ah?

Naughty boy/girl.

Anywayz, looks like everybody’s sprucing up their blogs e.g. you, Rocky (now got colours, man) and of course, our darling Elviza (dapat cincin baru, beb).

Will tweak mine this weekend coz I still got to put up my blogger badge and BU logo. Current theme not fully customizable, so, maybe have to change.

Cheers, bro.

Dearest Shar,

Hey, that s not cincin baru lah…those are our wedding bands. We snapped the pictures during our honeymoon. The only cincin baru I got nowadays are those I bought myself. Huaaaaa…..!

And no, you cannot be weekend blogger. Must be full time blogger. What are you raving about? Off to click you.

Rocky accidentally ditch me on his blog last weekend after the spruce up. I texted him in no time demanding reasons. The poor man.
