Penang Technopreneur Dialogue & Web 2.0 Sharing Session @ Bayview Hotel, Georgetown (1feb08)

This will be the first event of its kind in Malaysia specifically on Web 2.0 & RubyOnRails development platform, in addition to the many Technopreneur Forum/dialog over the past couple of years. At least a hundred web-enthusiasts, technopreneurs, ICT graduates, academicians are expected to congregate in Penang and share knowledge as well as concerns on the road-ahead vision on web & technopreneurship development arena especially in the northern region of Malaysia covering the states of Perlis, Kedah, Penang and Perak (northern), which were recently grouped under North Corridor Economic Region (NCER) for balanced and progressive overall development.

This event has been initiated and funded by Multimedia Development Corporation Malaysia (MDeC - the government agency overseeing the Multimedia Super Corridor initiative), and is to be co-hosted and co-organized by Universiti Sains Malaysia (USM), Penang Development Corporation (PDC) and InvestPenang Berhad.

A long time technopreneur who's now taking the key operations of technopreneur development at MDeC, Mr Roslan Bakri Zakaria, in his capacity as General Manager of TeDD-MDeC, having had a personal crash overview of Web 2.0 revolution through visits to Web2Expo San Francisco & Tokyo just last year, will spark the fire which hopefully will continue to burn and push technopreneurs to embrace the information revolution (2nd generation, supposedly) that's taking over the world especially since "You" has been named as the TIME Magazine Person of the Year in 2006.

Web 2.0 enthusiasts including Nasir (ICTpenang.net & Pajamanation Malaysia) and Azrul Hasni (a Java "sifoo" who's now with BillAdam as its CTO) will then take the floor to share their own personal experience and observations.

Master developers including KhaiLee (Mindvalley) and Kamal Fariz (Ruby Brigade) will then share their technical expertise and visions on web development trend and strategies.

After some wild ride on buzzwords and codes, and a good Friday afternoon rest, we'll get back to reality on funding for tech projects. Mr Colin Wong (Seattle-based Prosperati) along with Ashran Ghazi (NEF), Lilyana Latif (Asiastream), and Rizal Azwani (Cradle) will share with the attendees, some insights on funding or getting funded for their bold projects.
