Sandra Smeltzer was in Penang and Kuala Lumpur recently. She is a communications professor from Canada and was here to research the Malaysian political blogging scene and the impact it exerts on society. We arranged to meet at Secret Recipe. On discovering that she would love a good cup of latte, we moved to San Farncisco Coffee where we had a very interesting chat that lasted more than two hours.

  2. A research topic on this “Malaysian political blogging scene and the impact it exerts on society”??
    Hmm..impressive. I know to certain extend, there is some impacts on the society.. but a proper research on that..Cheeem.
    By chance we can read or find out about the outcome? I like this topic =) How cool is that!

    There has been research on the Malaysian blogging scene. Some of them are interesting indeed, outside looking into the blogosphere.
