There are corporations who lie to their consumers or only look at their quarterly outlook. We'll be naive to think of businesses as a public service. What we should be thinking about is whether their interests line up with public good, and that should be the job of government. Future50.sg

So I was outstation and only absorbed the news about Chinese bus drivers who "failed to report for work" and got arrested+repatriated. Apparently our national union not only did not represent them but supported the arrests?? For the sake of investor confidence? Now, why SMRT again and why doesn't Delgro headline our news as much? Smacks of mismanagement to me. End of the day, did the drivers go through proper channels first or did they not? And if they did, what else could they have done besides an "illegal strike"? http://sg.news.yahoo.com/smrt-bus-drivers%E2%80%99-strike--a-sign-of-things-to-come--035746969.html

Introduction

Nicknamed "Gadget Boy" by friends at age 18 because he used to scribble Grafitti on a PalmPilot faster than others would type, today Nicholas Aaron Khoo is the epitome of a digital nomad who lugs around a 5kg dual-screen/dual-harddisk Lenovo Thinkpad W700ds he affectionately calls "Chewie" for conquering Zergs while tweeting on the second screen, complete with disaster recovery on the RAID drive for that good night's sleep.
