Following the revelation that Malaysian’s prefer to have sex in washrooms, TV Smith produces the definitive guide.:

Joi Ito has been named one of the 10 most powerful women in the blogosphere. While I think this may be a politically correct effort to get a male in the list, congratulations are still in order. Great stuff Joi!
8. Joi Ito of Technorati (http://joi.ito.com ) has her hands in a lot of Web 2.0 companies, some you might not even know about yet. This makes her damn powerful. Often times the one you don’t know that well is the most powerful. My personal favorite because she seems to help people get shit done.
Thailand used to boast Southeast Asia’s most free press. From Magnoy’s Samsara, more grim news about the decline that press conditions have seen in the past few years.:
The gloom lurking over the Thai media grew darker last week when a prominent journalist in Pattaya was brutally slain and a bomb exploded at the Bangkok headquarters of a media company.
Media advocates observe that the incidents follow a series of events that form a concerted effort to block public access to balanced information.
The recent attacks on media freedom have become more violent and are a grim reminder of the harassment endured by the media during the reign of dictators in the past.
“The two incidents suggest a new and disturbing trend of violence,” said Christopher Warren, president of the International Federation of Journalists. He has called upon authorities to expedite bringing the culprits to justice.
On Tuesday last week, the body of Santi Lammaninin, publisher of Pattaya Post, was found in his car on the side of an isolated road. He was shot three times, twice in the head, blindfolded and hog-tied. His paper had published reports on prostitution syndicates operating in hotels that led to the transfer of police officers out of shady but remunerative positions in Pattaya.

Tomorrow has removed its link to . An understandable move as they are all public bloggers and the video has been banned by Singapore’s Ministry of Propaganda Media Development Authority.:
Recommended by virgin_undergrad: “If you were to recall, Martyn See made headlines a couple of months ago when he was investigated by the police and allegedly forced to withdraw his short film ‘Singapore Rebel’ from the Singapore International Film Festival. It wasn’t until i googled ’singapore’ under the google’s video search did i realise that the video was available on the internet.

With the US State Department issuing terror alert warnings for Guangzhou and other areas, it’s refreshing to see that the capital has started taking precautions.:
This sign I noticed in the Sanlitun diplomatic compound in Beijing: You are not allowed to blow up your car! Not sure if it is a temporary sign (Mr. Bush will visit Beijing this week) or whether it has been here longer already. Or does it mean something else?

Via Danwei, a brief translation of an excellent Caijing magazine editorial criticizing reportage on the Avian Flu by China’s media.:
But despite [the greater transparency of the government in the wake of SARS], the domestic press still lags noticeably behind in its coverage. News about the virus often takes a detour to reach domestic audiences: it is first covered by foreign media, and then picked up by domestic press. Journalists sent to infected areas also say that local officials have not been cooperative enough…
…Clearly, we still have a ways to go in China to create completely transparent mechanisms for media scrutiny and the release of information to the public. But only by doing this can we build an environment conducive to enhancing public health and national health standards. In this sense, the latest round of bad news about avian flu, as worrying as it is, may prove to be a blessing in disguise. It calls attention to our inadequacies.
The Caijing piece is a fair assessment of the failings of China’s media in this matter. While it has been pointed out elsewhere that China’s media has been reporting on the flu, contrary to some media reports, it has been lagging.

Although the five friendlies, Beijing’s choice of Olympic mascots, have been getting critical reviews elsewhere - AsiaPundit is giving them a thumbs-up.:
Note that AP has been a big Powerpuff Girls fan, and the endorsement of the Five Friendlies is tentative. A demonstration of superpowers is required. Better still, a duel. I think the girls could take out the ‘Friendlies’ as easily as they did the Gangreen Gang. Blossom looks concerned, but Bubbles and Buttercup seem confident.
(While admitting to liking cute Asian things, note that Asiapundit still hates the damn mouthless cat.)
