Juwono Sudarsono Well, this was certainly interesting. Indonesia’s Minister of Defense Juwono Sudarsono has gone online… with a blog. So far, he has been talking about politics, development, and defense-related matters as well. His blog even accepts comments, and the exchanges with the global public in his post “Military Business and the Reform Process” are especially interesting. Back in March 2005, DID covered US Strategic Command’s 4-star blogging general. That was an internal effort, and from scattered reports apparently somewhat successful. This effort is somewhat different, and would be unusual even in a country like the USA or Sweden.
