Back from Malaysia

Educational as all things generally are in this world. My visit was by no means representative as the world i think conspired to shove hordes of interesting people my way. Only two Weeks though :-(

Lots of well educated people going about the business of plotting together for social justice (Friends of the Earth Malaysia...but it was the first to bear that name and in malay its got the words sahabatul Alam in the title, The Consumers Association of Penang), doing cultural J and other wot nots. Musically_ Phoenix Bangkit by M Nasir and visually through the film Puteri Gunung Ledang (the princess of Ledang mountain). Educationally and islamically through the Multiversity, The International Islamic University of Malaysia and ISTAC (may Allah protect them from screwing up or taking damage from malicious and hegemonic sources).

Technologically there are people, with resources of a kind, thinking about humanising this techie techi world of ours.

of course not every thing is rainbows, lots of bangladeshi, indonesian and southa asian exploitation going on. please malaysia sort out a love drenched policy on these matters. I understand the need for a bhumiputra policy, but this affirmative action craziness might end up being detrimental to the lifeforce of the malays.

anywway am gonna try and stick some photos up"!!
