Singapore Schools Hit By Disgraceful Disease With No Known Cure
Singapore has this national blogging competition for students going on, supported by the education ministry with product placement from the biggest telco Singtel. Although most would probably agree that a 'blogging competition' is a strange and bizarre idea, I'm sure a committee has determined that everything should be a competition in this country, including online diaries/journals/blogs. One benefit from this is that more people will put up their writings on the Internets. I'm from the school of thought that believes that everyone should be encouraged to write, no matter how 'good' or 'how bad' it is. So sometimes, even gems can result from bad ideas, like the following entry on a new disease that threatens us all. (Via Molly the Meek.)
