Went to Digi's headquarters on Jan 9 to listen to how Digi transformed itself into an innovative company. Morten Lundal, CEO of Digi explained how he changed a typical corporate culture (dominated by old ranks and organization practiced by most organizations)into a new innovative company which embraces creativity, efficiancy and innovation. The staffs are working in a paperless environment with no permanent seats. They have a one and only unique staff welfare scheme irregardless of the rank of the staff. The 'Happy' product was also introduced to the crowd organized by MACRI. Now I understand why Digi won the best workplace practice and culture for Malaysia's CSR from PM in 2007.

Took two weeks to prepare Boon IP website in English and Bahasa Malaysia. The website is one of the very few IP website in Bahasa Malaysia, the national language of Malaysia (Even today MYIPO doesn't have a Bahasa Malaysia website). There is a need for Bahasa Malaysia content because it is the main language used in our education system. I took the trouble to consult Dewan Bahasa and Universiti Malaya's web page a few times to validate some of the terms such as rekacipta, rekabentuk and hakcipta. The result of my effort may be viewed at www.boon.com.my
