Apparently, Mas Selamat had been wikipedia’d! Haha… that’s really fast and this again proves that Wikipedia can be used widely as an "archive of sorts". Of course, a well written entry is important – something which is sometimes being neglected occasionally, eventually leading to journal and conference advisory committee discouraging the use of Wiki references in a submission paper.

I am surprised at how updated the news in the wiki entry is, up to the point where MMS are being issued in Singapore in an attempt to track him. However, I realised that there are no channels that engage blogs or social media on a larger extend. I guess Singapore, or the world, is not ready to engage the online media for their works yet.

Oh well.

If you’d like to see the wiki entry for yourself, it’s at http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mas_Selamat_bin_Kastari. Looks good to me. =)

    His escape got nothing to do with SAF as if he was in SAF custody he will not be taken lightly at all.
