This should help Malaysian public check for themselves if a site might be block by running tests on Sinar's servers and rule out local network issues.

We will add more networks such as Maxis, Digi as we get access to servers on this network. More tests,  and hopefully better user interface improvements.
 
Our initial version of a suite of tests from multiple servers to give status of whether a website is blocked or censored in Malaysia.

Suggestions for improvements & and code contributions welcome:

Several men wielding machetes showed up around 2.40am on Sunday in a white car.

"The boss and a staff member were sitting outside and there were two customers in the shop.

"Around two to three men got out of the car and robbed the restaurant of RM2,000 cash and drove off," he said when contacted on Monday.

The Borneo Project has released Broken Promises: Displaced by Dams, the third film in their series about the hydroelectric dams proposed for construction in Sarawak, Malaysia. Broken Promises tells the story of forced displacement of indigenous peoples to make way for these dams. Although the dams are being built on native land, indigenous communities have not been properly consulted and are being forcefully relocated from their communities. While the government promises full compensation, better schools, access to healthcare, housing, and adequate farmland, these promises are rarely, if ever, kept. 
 
In the case of the Baram Dam, the next dam in line to be built, indigenous communities have been denied information, excluded from participation in studies and decision-making, and coerced into accepting the dam through threats and intimidation. They have thus been denied their rights to their lands, territories, and self-determination. In response, the people of Baram have actively protested the dam through rallies, conferences, and two blockade sites that have halted progress on the dam since October 2013. 
 
Broken Promises can be viewed in English and Bahasa Malaysia on The Borneo Project's website, www.borneoproject.org, or through the following links:

Network graph of 1MDB related people and organizations, from +Sinar Project popit public governance database.

As Claire Rewcastle Brown shared, we don't have much information, but we have to piece it together bit by bit.

We can start mapping quite a bit with public information, each day my research adds more nodes. I'm going to add a few more for the PEMANDU directors, as hinted in this graph.

In short, what network graph shows us is that, there these people in 1MDB related companies are all connected in some ways, some tighter than others, by sitting on same boards in several companies, or even taking over positions in same problematic companies.

These neo4j graphs are mostly used for internal debugging, to make sure our database is actually usable as we continue to add information to it, and extend it with more popolo standard fields.
It's interesting because 1MDB is a hot topic, but the database can also be used for more mundane but important things such as mapping gender equality of legislative assemblies, age structures, political structures and committees and more.

For now though, even initial glimpse of political connections, hints that 1MDB issue is going to hopefully bring down a whole lot of these people.

From what I read, it looks like father was picking up wife, and stepped outside, probably to attract attention of wife. I would guess that he didn't think it would be dangerous in front of shopping mall in Subang Jaya.

A lot of our MPs are on Twitter and that info is updated and maintained in our public database of MPs on Popit

https://sinar-malaysia.popit.mysociety.org/organizations/53633b5a19ee29270d8a9ecf#posts

This sort of up to date information now is publicly available to all to build your own apps, to do research or automate maintenance of lists such as Twitter.

For example in python to get social media accounts of MPs in simple to follow iPython Notebook format:

It's been unsafe for some time around Subang Jaya, always be wary. This is Saturday night around Subang Parade/Empire/Aeon so even then there are criminals lurking about outside when there is lots of people around.

Internet censorship for sharing information on political corruption and fraud now in effect. Threats of persecution to online media and public for those that reshare content from Sarawak Report. Those circumventing DNS blocks are labelled as malicious intent.

Introduction
I'm working with a group of other Malaysian developers on the Sinar Project, an effort to empower Malaysian citizens by making government information more transparent and easily accessible through current web and mobile tools.

In 2004, I worked on the International Open Source Network project as part of the UNDP Asia-Pacific Development Information Programme promoting open source, open standards and open content to developing countries in this region.

In what little (if any) personal time left after spending time with my kids, I play basketball, dabble in gardening, playing keyboard and following what's happening in the different fields of design.

Explanation of my tagline.

Great public park to take the kids out for a picnic. The kids love playing and exploring the water feature as well as the playground. You'll need a car to get here though.

A fairly complete local aquarium that's great fun for the kids. Has a dolphin show, sessions with seals (allowed to touch) and penguins. Other attractions include feeding turtles, and small bridge to a small rocky island.

Serve steaks and burgers, but a meat shop and not really a restaurant. Cooked well, but simply. Best value is if you buy the kalbi slices, tongue and some cuts for home BBQ . Beef bacon and sausages to buy are not too bad either.

Great place for work visits to Jakarta. Free Wi-Fi everywhere, nice rates on studio rooms with kitchen. Laundry facilities for those long stays and a great restaurant.

The food at Chinese vegetarian restaurants are usually very good, and this restaurant is no exception. Let down however by poor service. Appetizers served without chopsticks, forgetting about tea and long wait.
