"Is blogging an effective tool to democratize Malaysia?"
June Tan is a Masters student at the Centre for Public Policies in Universiti Malaya. As part of her Masters thesis, she is researching on the above issue.
She has set up a simple survey for bloggers as well as blog-readers to complete. I've completed it and it'll only take between 5 - 10 minutes of your time.
To find out more about her research, you can visit her research blog. There are some interesting blog culture analysis there, although they are based more on research in the United States. She intends to publish her findings and conclusions in public upon completion of her thesis. It certainly will be interesting to know how effective blogs will be, particularly for the next general elections ;)
