MacMachine Some edited footages I shot during a New York City trip for Human Rights Watch International Film Festival and the New York Asian Film Festival in June 2005. Nearly mugged wandering around. It's a little tribute to this lovely city and people but NOT to Bush and his administration. It got this wonderful creative aura energy that hard to explain. Anyway, this video here will tell on how I felt being in the "City That Never Sleeps". Edited with the background music of U2 from the album "All that you can't leave behind, New York - 2000 ".

Al Jazeera English set to launch today

There is lots of excitement & stress here at Al Jazeera KLCC office(Kuala Lumpur), about the launch of Al Jazeera English Channel. Visit this page to check Al Jazeera English revamped website. Al Jazeera English Channel, the 24 hour English news service that is launching on November 15th at 3 pm Doha time, today. This is one of the most advanced news production centres in the world - all systems are Hi-Definition (HD) and it is connected to three other broadcast centres across the globe via a high speed fibre network.

ASTRO here in Malaysia carries Al-Jazeera on Channel 92(8pm,local time). In addition to cable, ADSL, mobile platforms and satellite, Al Jazeera English will be available as a live stream to the one billion users of the internet worldwide here.

Apart from all the hi-tech goodness, the real claim to fame is being part of "Al Jazeera"! 10 years ago Al Jazeera was launched in Doha, Qatar and it not only changed the face of the media in region, but also the geo-political situation. Suddently people from the Arab world were being represented in their own voices. While Qatar may be rich in oil and natural gas, it is Al Jazeera which really put it on the world stage. Now with the expansion into English, Qatar is bound for another decade of being the home to "fearless journalism".

Some people think Al Jazeera as a media propaganda for the Al Qaeda. And the muslims say it is monopolize by zionis thinker. Please read this book by Hugh Miles, Al Jazeera to know the true story. Watch this channel - it is going to rock the world!

With the hours rapidly slipping away, everyone inside AJI is ready to go, but we're excited. Producers are getting our shows together and trying to stabilize the system. Continuing the trend of being a market leader and doing things a bit different than the rest, the Al Jazeera International Commission has created an "extranet commissioning system which will allow and encourage journalists and producers worldwide to pitch stories and receive rapid decisions." AJI will be the first global High Definition TV network with four broadcast centers around the world (Doha, Kuala Lumpur, Washington and London) that will provide blocks of programming to fill the 24-hour news cycle. Lots of space and time for freelancers to fill. So this is where I stand.

“ Better to be a Pirate than to join the Navy ”

Steve Jobs - Referring to the pirate flag that flew over Apple’s headquaters in 1983. I believe that quote was one of three keyphrases for a large Apple meeting/conference, and the Pirate flag was attached to the Macintosh building after that meeting. So the flag was actually a reaction to that.
