What you can do about the CPB

There’s been quite a lot of buzz about the CPB, thanks to irate techs.

Another blogpost to read on the issue:

If what you read about the bill made you mad enough to, oh, do something, here’s what you can do:

1. Show up to the Open Day being held by the Ministry of Science, Technology and Innovation (MOSTI) this Tuesday. Details are below:

Date : 13 Disember 2011 (Tuesday)
Time : 9.30 pagi – 5.00 petang
Place : Dewan Perhimpunan
Aras 1, Blok C4, Kompleks C
Kementerian Sains, Teknologi dan Inovasi

Official FB page for event: http://www.facebook.com/events/205572512858664/

 

2. Write to your MP and voice your opposition to the Bill. Urge your friends to write/call/Tweet their respective MPs.

In the meantime, enjoy Ikhwan Nazri (@tekong)’s take on the whole thing, YouTube style:

    Nobody will need to be registered to create a Malaysian version of Facebook for all its worth.

    We will not be inconvenienced if Facebook crashes but many will if the online banking system does or if the software on the computers driving a driverless train does a blue screen of death resulting in a runaway train.
