Panel in Singapore to study impact of new media
27, March, 2007 2 Comments
In my earlier posting, I talked about Singapore’s take on new media. To show how serious Singapore is about new media, the government has set up a panel to look into the impact of new media on society. The panel will look into issues such as how new media affects the young, how people interact in the future, etc. The panel will be headed by the former editor-in-chief of Singapore Press Holding’s English and Malay Newspapers Division Cheong Yip Seng. In fact, a look at the members in the panel reveal many to have media background such as editors and journalists of local publications. This goes to show the convergence that many see between traditional and new media.
