Blogger event of the year- BUM 2010

Touted to be the ‘the blogger event of the year’, Blogger Universe Malaysia 2010 will be held this Saturday with the theme of “moving Malaysia forward”.

Set to take place at Subang Jaya Lake View Club, it will feature a keynote address from Selangor MB Khalid Ibrahim as well as high-profile politicians such as Khalid Samad and P Uthayakumar.

The event will start from 10am Saturday.

BUM will have in the same room Utusan Malaysia editor Zaini Hassan and Seputeh MP Teresa Kok MP, albeit at different times. Zaini’s write-up on the azan call from mosque loudspeakers drew the attention of the authorities to Teresa and led to her ISA detention. She has sued Utusan and Zaini for defamation.

Zaini will be speaking on media matters and Teresa on bridging the religious divide, a topic relevant to her ISA experience.

Other speakers are:

In the BM session at noon – Zaid Ibrahim, Haris Ibrahim and Khalid Samad on the ‘The ‘Allah’ issue;

Media (afternoon) – Zaini, P Gunasegaram and Wong Choon Mei

English (evening) – Teresa, Dr Dzulkefly Ahmad, P Uthayakumar and Syed Ali Alhabshee on bridging religious divides.

All the sessions will have a Q & A.
