Blogger Registration Act - A Follow-Up

The report, "Bloggers don't need to register after all", was published on the The Straits Times on Friday.

A copy of the report has been uploaded, accessible above, for reasons of completeness to the debate. Apologies for the two days' delay in processing it.

Aww. A blogger registration act might have been a good thing, in the long run. Why? It would have riled up a good portion of the community, and would have been virtually unenforceable.

Are there only 22,000 blogs? That seems like a low amount. I predict at least a 100,000 - considering how many students have them.

With one fell swoop the establishment could have alienated itself from an entire generation of students, students with the capability of voting in 2011. It would also demonstrate to them that since the PAP can't enforce one law effectively, it could have sparked a slippery slope that would encourage students to ignore more and more laws, like "you must get a demonstration permit before demonstrating".

Oh well. There it goes, down the drain.
