Around 1,200 bloggers from across the archipelago came together for Pesta Blogger 2009, the third annual national blogger gathering, held in Jakarta on Saturday.
This year's Pesta Blogger theme, "One Spirit One Nation", reflects the nation's credo, Unity in Diversity.
“We put up the theme to remind us all to remain united as a nation, in spite of differences. Blog and other social media are able to break through physical, religious and cultural boundaries to keep us united as one nation with one spirit,” said Iman Brotoseno, chairman of the event, said as quoted by kompas.com.
Hundreds of participants have flocked the event venue at SMESCO building in Jl. Gatot Soebroto since morning. They came from across the country, including Jakarta, Yogyakart, Banjarmasin and Makassar; even from abroad.
