How cool is the internet?

I saw that that journalism professor whose blog I read had been to Malaysia a few years ago doing journalism research.

So I emailed her and asked if she had any contacts who would be able to help me with my MRP or write me a letter saying they'd act as my supervisor abroad to help me apply for funding.

She forwarded that email to a few people.

They forwarded that email to a few people.

Now I'm in touch with three Malaysian professors and nine Malaysian gay and women's rights activists on Facebook.

To everyone who says young people's use of social networking sites is a big dumb narcissistic waste of time: Take that.
