It ceased publication a while back, but hopefully it will be resurrected cos Jakarta/Java Kini is unmitigated crap. Roy's Hair should know more, as he used to write for Jakarta24 under a sensible pseudonym.

Java Kini might be crap but it's got that upper demographic thing going which must help no end with advertisers, never saw Jakarta24 but if it was going for the younger, poorer crowd that can't have helped on the money side.

Jak 24 were not happy with Java Kini. Editor Uncle Mick alleged dirty tricks to put off potential advertisers. Java Kini is still going with the poncy restos and Jak 24 alas folded. Shame, I thought it was a pretty good mag (and they paid me a decent wedge for articles). Now you can check out the new Kabar magazine, I've met the young ex-JIS editors, nice people. It's widely available too.
Hot gossip : Kini editor just moved to Sunday JP. She'll probably axe me column.

If she axed you would it matter? Assuming I wrote anything that was publishable in a newspaper/magazine I think the only reason i would want it published is for strategic reasons, to get better known, to have a 'straight', legit side to my thing, because that is still very important with traditional types, people who are slow on the uptake with the internet thing, - because i think you mentioned elsewhere the pay for such articles is not huge.

Kabar I've seen, just the web version, they seem to be on the right track there, i've spoken to avi the web guy, gave him loads of tips which he never thanked me for but well he gave me a link on their front page, that'll do.

Why, that's fabulous news! Were you at Bugils on the night she presented the quiz? Filled it with fascinating tidbits of artistic and cultural trivia. Extremely informative and educational. I still get hard thinking about the finer points of pointillism. Almost as good as one of Jeroen's perspicuous quizzes.

Anyway, if she axed you, would it matter? Let's be brutally honest; just because your column is the only thing worth reading in The Jakarta Post, it's not shallow enough to attract advertising's dumb dollars. I mean, really, could you imagine "Metro Mad - Sponsored by the hotels of the Suharto clan and cronies"? And don't try to defend your writing with "strategic reasons", such as "I need the beer money".

By the way, if the Kini editor is moving to the Sunday JP, does that mean Chitatos is out?

Yes the famous quiz. I think you inferred some foul play when Ms. Kini was MCing. Do tell all here.
