First World Hardware, Third World Software (Piss Poor Part II)

26 April 2003 13:23

Pak Lah (our Deputy Prime Minister) mentioned the following in his keynote address to members of the Oxford and Cambridge Society of Malaysia sometime last month:

"The way I see it, the malaise affecting Malaysia that may well jeopardise our way forward is a case of having First World infrastructure and Third World mentality. From poor execution and inept management to shoddy maintenance and appalling customer service, Malaysia is in danger of possessing the hardware, but little software.”
Something very poignant indeed which I'm sure will fall on deaf ears anyways (Malaysians generally don't like to hear negative things about themselves). Enough with the technology transfer for now, I reckon. What we *really* need at this moment is an Attitude Transfer.
