New Information Minister Datuk Ahmad Shabery Cheek to Embrace and Engage with Bloggers?

Just as if was tracing their track records, came this news - coming from the same person who asked us not to equate Kamunting with Gitmo. A new dawn?

Q: The new media has exploded. Are you going to engage the bloggers at all?

A: Well, I wish I could see them. But I don't know how many there are. Bloggers can be local and global. They can be everywhere and they emerge every day. They are important. In this explosion of information technology, everywhere is the centre of information. And people are free to express what they think. There is the good and bad about that. I wish we can sit down and talk to them and think openly what's best for the country. That's the bottom line.

Has he already contacted you two, Rocky and Jeff?
