These are sensitive times. Since newly installed Jakarta Governor made his Protect Pribumis speech at his inauguration the P word has gained new political impetus.
One thing about the internet is that what is old can be made new again, with a new twist.

I fell in love with Bangkok after watching a Thai romantic comedy titled Bangkok Traffic (Love) Story, about a thirty-year-old woman feeling desperate on being last among her friends to marry, and her relationship with a cute engineer working on the Bangkok Skytrain system.

At the same time we read of the Wall Street Journal stopping their print editions in Singapore and Hong Kong. Sadly they are part of a trend that has also hit Indonesia media hard.
Many news outlets have tried to follow their readers by going online. The strategy, however, hasn’t paid off for most of them as online advertising is going more to Facebook and Google than to these outlets.
What should companies that have been relying on engagement with newspapers and news outlets do, now that these traditional outlets are closing down? Read More
