1Malaysia, 1Propaganda, 1Failure

I have nev­er had to agree on the kind of bull­crap that my fel­low Malaysian friends are hav­ing on a dai­ly basis.

Just yes­ter­day, news of a new tech­nol­o­gy that the Japan­ese would love to get their hands on was high­ly pub­li­cized on local and for­eign news wires. To sum up for the day’s news, Malaysian Prime Min­is­ter announced that all Malaysians aged 18 and above would received a com­pli­men­ta­ry 1Malaysia email accounts.

Well, if I get his idea right, I think he is a very smart busi­ness­man. Give the cit­i­zens email accounts, bom­bard the said email accounts with sea­sons greet­ings and pro­mo­tion­al mate­ri­als, thus sav­ing the trou­ble of hir­ing a mar­ket­ing agency and pur­chas­ing email address from com­pa­nies to sell them.

To top it off the busi­ness, one would need to have access to the inter­net to access to their emails. Which means, more busi­ness for TM Malaysia, which is a gov­ern­ment linked com­pa­ny.

Good prof­it mar­gins, if you were to ask me.
