|Post Today Online discussing launch of 'M2F'|
The answer to one question leads to another: So how will the baby differ from its parents? I mean newspapers are already mainly for the corporate people and the early birds. Newswriting is already supposed to be snappy and concise with human interest stories and information on health, work and modern lifestyle. Is that not what a newspaper is, exactly? M2F could potentially be revolutionary if it were more for the others in society, such as the youth. We're not that useless you know? Remember that a few weeks ago, young Mr. Aekawit Thongdeeworakul, from my own university (REPRESENT!), hacked Ms. Prime Minister's Twitter account to make a few bold statements - each under 140 characters - about her policies.
What I do see however, is a need to get our book-decaying youth to read. I'm sick of being the only one in my age group who "reads". First I get accused by my peers of reading. Then they accuse me of getting better grades than them. Hello?! They need to start seeing the obvious benefits of reading and stop robbing their potentials by not reading. The only thing that might attract one of my classmate to M2F is that the paper is free. But I think it would be a better idea to intentionally make the "baby-paper" for the "babies". Then perhaps we've got a real revolution in the making. A revolution of teenage literacy in Thailand.
I have a dream.
