… for making BUM 2007 a success!

We are glad to have seen some posts on this event already and we will be tracking them in due time. We also hope to put up (links to) pictures and video soon. Feel free to place your link to your post on the event in the comments section!

We also appreciate feedback so feel free to pop in what you thought about the event for reference to other committees who plan to organise similar events in the future.

However, we know the event wasn’t perfect so apologies for …

… those who had to wait for dinner.
… those who felt the speeches dragged on for too long.
… those who came and had payment matters raised.
… (insert complaint here!)

What to expect
Each panellist will share their thoughts based on their field of activity, expertise and experience, for 8 to 10 minutes each.

They will spend the last 2-3 minutes of their speech on stating if they agree OR disagree with the following

That the media environment under the present Prime Minister Abdullah Ahmad Badawi’s administration is more open and liberal compared to the previous administration under Dr Mahathir Mohamad.

Special speaker Rocky will speak on the National Alliance of Bloggers.

Hope to see you all there! :)
