no, they didn't ... most emphatically! smile

neither did any other foreign "blogger" (whatever that is, anyway).

see http://www.jakchat.com/forums/ubbthreads.php?ubb=showflat&Board=7&Number=62291 for reasons why smile

There was some coverage in the JP on Saturday about the event ... lots of quotes saying "everybody is welcome" What a load of pish!

I am not a blogger, just a moron with a key board so not fussed one way or the other. However it does amuse me that a medium which has such potential to bring down barriers and provide information that isn't held accountable to advertising revenues chose to:

1. Exclude the opinions of non-Indonesian people this creating a very large barrier. Surely even non-Indonesian bloggers who aren't based in Indonesia could add value to any discussion. You only have to look at the quality of medical treatment in Indonesia to see that a policy of isolation doesn't work.

and

2. Seek sponsorship from evil empires such as Microsoft. Taking money from big corporations comes at a price. In future you will have to think twice about biting the hand that feeds you!

Exactly Chew,and even worse:

3. Seek to put a system of peer reviewed censorship in place.

well they can shove it up their bollocks as far as I'm concerned
