Cyber Merdeka
(azrulhasni@gmail.com)
Who are these people
What did they do
They struggle for our independance
AND STRUGGLE THEY
      DID!!
Today …
Our independence is again under threat...
Our IT independence that is
Our government's data
… is stored in propreitary file format
… and in propeitary databases
… running on propeitary systems
… whose IP are owned by foreign
          companies
Who love software patent like Britney loves
               her poodle
Who can pull the plug on us at any time..
       you know, like tomorrow
OR RIGHT NOW!
What are we?
Crazy!!@
We have to fight for our IT independance!!
By using Open Source
So that we are in control
The government says...
We have to be neutral
Neutral??
Neutral my stiking foot!!
We have to be   BIAS
… towards our own interest
The Americans ...
… are always protecting their interest
Why don't we?
Open source not owned by anyone.
It's not ours
But...
It's the next best thing
We can modify it and change it …
… heck
… we can publish the code on TV, for all we
                   care
… and that is OK
( As if Malaysian TV is not boring enough
                 already)
What platform
Doc. mgmt     Workflow     Whatever...


    Scala,PHP,
   Ruby, Phyton          PHP, Ruby,
                           Phy...
What can you do?
Blog
Twitt
Chat
Convince
...people around you, especially if they are
                 not in IT
of the importance of IT sovereignity
Malaysians are nobody's PANSY!
I had a meeting with MDEC
50.6% of MSC companies are struggling to
       look for Java Programmers
… and yet our university grads only know
                  VB
… and VB 6 at that
Cyber Merdeka is not just a call
For hippies
Who hug trees
And burn bras
… if you do wear a bra
Of course
You can burn someone else's bra too
(Sorry I digress)
This call makes ...
BUSINESS SENSE!
So if our forefather give their lives for our
               independance
We need to give our code
… and our sweat and our time and our
             attention
… to Open Source
For our independance
MERDEKA!!
    ( Freedom )
Did I sound like William Walace from
             Braveheart?
                  :)
Is Mel Gibson in the room?
TQ
