I received an email a few days ago from the World Summit Award Team,
Dear Mr. Johari Rahmad,
We are happy to inform you that your project Kapasitor, has been nominated for the World Summit Award Global Contest (www.wsis-award.org) by Malaysia’s Multimedia Development Corporation Sdn. Bhd.(MDeC), WSA Expert Panel Member 2007, as the best e-Content example in e-Culture from Malaysia.
We are looking forward to receiving your product and wish you success in the World Summit Award 2007!
World Summit Award Team
What is WSA ?
The World Summit Award (WSA) is a global initiative to select and promote the world’s best e-Content, started in 2003 in the framework of the United Nations’ World Summit on the Information Society (WSIS). This is done through national contests, a global contest, held every 2 years, and numerous content-focused national and international conferences and workshops – the WSA Road Show.
Alhamdulillah. I feel honored and happy for this. This is a chance of a lifetime and we, the administrators of Kapasitor will try our best to win and bring your works to the eyes of the world just like what we promised in Prasasti; Unleashing Talents to the Plateau of the World or Menjulang Karya Jalanan ke Mata Dunia.
Thank you to MDeC for giving us this opportunity.
Thank you also to you. Yes, you; readers, writers and supporters of Kapasitor.net. You are the reason how we managed to get to this level. You are the reason why we burned up our nights by staying up late, scolded by our girlfriends and boyfriends for not spending more time with them and fall asleep at office during working hour. And we will try our best to let people all around the world, recognize your talents, skills and strengths.
We do this for you.
We have 170 countries to compete with and we need your prayers to help us win. Let’s pray for the success of Kapasitor so that we could bring your talents to the plateau of the world.
P/s: the dateline for Merdeka’s contest is 15th August 2007 and you have 24 days left. Send your stories or poetries now and grab the chance to win up to RM550 in cash! . Cepat! Fai tit! hayaku!
