During a tour of Singapore's enlightened and forward thinking Jurang Public Library , I met Ivan Chew, and we hit it off, because we shared a love of literature. But when Ivan disdained blogging, I was quick to take issue and managed to persuade him to look closer The result was Ivan began his own blog, which is quite good. He also started evangelizing blogging in the South Asia blogging community, including his own staff who has started this and that . Further, he's been told he influenced the chief librarian at Hong Kong University to start a blog.Ivan reports that since I was in Singapore, bloggingwhich was almost nonexistent last June has started to gain traction with lots of bloggers coming on board. In fact, come this May, the bloggers will be holding their own version of BloggerCon, and that they are looking for ideas on how to make it great. If you have an idea to help, please leave a comment on his site or email him. Scoble, you should get Winer to chime in on this. It's wonderful to see both librarians and Singaporeans linking into the Blogosphere.
Here is a micro blogroll of some neat Singapore blogs to check out:Mr Brown
