The Online Citizen leads with an entry on whether it is possible for Singaporean entrepeneurs to successful, given the conservative and materialistic culture of Singapore. Fearfully Opinionated, in an entry on racism, writes that it is better to respect differences rather than to deny them.

1 more Sg Blog suggested that Singapore’s recent political problems with her neighbours was the result of complacency, while The Star Online published a story on the puzzling question of why more than half of young Singaporeans want to emigrate despite Singapore’s affluence.

A gecko’s tale discussed the importance of social media and compared its use between Singapore politicians and American politicians.

Singapore’s lack of readiness for Web 2.0 was highlighted by iBjorn, while Ian has posted an answer to the problem why young Singaporeans want to leave the country.

    Hmmm interesting. You could also alternatively put linked title in front and followed by a summarised description of the article.

    nah – I prefer the original clean look. This looks messy and cumbersome. Thanks.

    While it is nice to try something different and try to be refreshing, but I believe that this format reduce the quick scanning of the blog titles and bloggers. Some of us like to know the bloggers first, some like the titles first. Most would like to find out what their favourite bloggers have been writing. This does not seem to happen much. I like the old layout better. In internet time, three seconds are needed to grab or break your visitor’s attention span to your website. Do this 3 second test and see. Thank you.

    hi, thx for the comments.
    we have decided to go with both for the time being, the summary for those with more time, and the links for those in a hurry.

Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
