Which website do you go when you switch on your PC/Notebook/Tablet? As a Gen-Xers, I used to check out my local newspapers online or local printed newspapers for my news fix. Now? not anymore! Facebook & Twitter is my main source of news, updated, advertisement and events around KK City! Printed material is consider a luxury to have now. All of it is available in digital format now.
How does one keep up with such rising and explosion of online digital media? B2.0 is an annual gathering for bloggers and social media enthusiasts in Borneo Island. A gathering open to individuals who apply social media tools to their businesses and personal lives, and to those who are keen to explore possibilities in this medium. The gathering focuses on networking, collaboration, case studies, ideas, critical issues, trends, and best practices around Borneo Island & South East Asia Region. It is a platform for Borneo people to stay abreast with trends in social media.

Some of my favorite session was by Tai KL from Naga DDB representing DiGi Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd in his talk on In Support of Social Media and Team Sprocket's Tristan Lee Riven who talked about their team who is currently working on their new game called Shiftling with lots of Borneo element in the designs. I love creative people working on their creativity and representing it to the world.
One my favorite video who was represented by Tai KL from Naga DDB on how DiGi Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd market their Brand. I laugh so hard I have to re-watch it over and over again! :DD
Last but not least I want to thank DiGi Telecommunications Sdn. Bhd for sponsoring me to attend this event for the second time! I have to say I truly enjoyed all the sessions and to refresh myself about what Social Media can do.
