The exciting blogosphere

How could the old media(TOM) match the excitement in blogosphere? Last few days have been tremendously invigorating, amusing and exhilarating. The cooking class and the lesser mortal episodes were given full coverage, something that TOM can never do. There were plenty of vinegar, chilly, pepper and salt added to make the cooks irresistible to savour. TOM must be able to report them as profusely as the new media or they will lose out on the readership. Unfortunately this is something they cannot keep up with. But credit must go to TOM for firing the first shot. The new media simply followed through, seized the initiative and covered grounds that were taboo to TOM. And TOM could do nothing about it except to watch silently on the sideline. Come to think of it, if TOM and the new media could work hand in hand, wow, it will be an exciting new recipe.

Perhaps TOM should send some of their executives and senior editors to the famed Le Cordon Bleu culinary school for holidays with their family.

Then perhaps they can cook up spin stories that are so believable most Singaporeans will swallow the whole bait, hook and sinker.

And the Budget? What wow? When you lump everything together, it looks so good. So much spending on the citizens. But read the fine lines and you'll know it's just another 'day in paradise'.

Careful what you wish for. When TOM and new media works together hand in hand, someone may stipulate rules to control what comes out of the new media and it could end up like a muzzled dog. Competition is good.
