I only know of Johan Ismail through his weblog. His sometimes witty, most times succinct and bold account of current affairs was a refreshing read. I can fully comprehend the loss felt by fellow bloggers at PPS who are grieving at the demise of Johan. He must have been an enormously well-liked person for such a heartfelt outpouring of sadness and respect. His passing on is a great loss to the Malaysian blogging scene. My deepest condolence to Johan?s family for their loss. May he rest in peace.

  1. Like you, most of us know him only through his blog. Even then, we all felt as if we lost some one we know very well.
    Amazing what a blog could do to your readers.

  2. Most blog about the mundane. Johan blogged about issues that affected our everyday lives. That was what made him stand out.
