I’m now in Pulai Desaru Beach in Malaysia for ITJourno Asia Forum 2006 organized by MediaConnect Asia.

We arrived in Singapore last night and took the ferry this morning. Over 40 journalists from across the region are covering this event, which presents the latest trends and issues in technology.

I was also one of the speakers, kicking off the Enjoy segment of the forum this afternoon with a presentation on the gaming industry and the Asian Gaming Journalists Association. Right-click here to download a copy of my PowerPoint presentation (2.43MB).

I’m also one of the judges in the Best Gaming Journalist category of the first MediaConnect Asia Tech Journalist Awards, which is sponsored by Vignette.

We already submitted the scores. Good luck to all the finalists. I’m proud to say that all four finalists for Best Gaming Journalist are AGJA members: Leung Wai-Leng of Straits Times’ Digital Life (Singapore), Blake Hoo of GameAxis Malaysia, Jaczie Lo of GameAxis (Philippines), and Alex Villafania of INQ7.net/hackenslash (Philippines).

The winners will be announced tomorrow night.
