34 BLOGGERS from Malaysia and Asean met for about 4 hours before they agreed to adopt a KL Consensus, a document of fundamentals that the bloggers hope will form a basis for future cooperation.
The bloggers represent 8 countries with a combined population of easily over 100 million Netizens. The Asean bloggers will join over 200 Malaysian bloggers tomorrow (Sunday) for a day-long conference.
PM Najib Razak has agreed to drop by for lunch. Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad has agreed to be patron of the Blog House Malaysia, the grouping of mainly socio-bloggers which is putting together the 1st Malaysia-Asean Regional Bloggers Conference or MARBC (pronounced as ‘Ma-Back’).
