WHO WE ARE
We are residents and ratepayers in the Subang Jaya municipality, Selangor.
We volunteer our time to promote a knowledge-based community that leverages on the vast potentials of Internet and pervasive communications technologies.
This e-community portal, founded on October 26, 1999, is our community hall on the Internet.
www.usj.com.my won two coveted awards – back-to-back - for Best Community Development Website in 2000 bestowed by PIKOM and Malaysia Internet Awards – a record that remains unbroken till this day. ( Click here and here )
HOW WE OPERATE
We believe in grassroot democracy. Hence, we take pride to proclaim ourselves as a 100% citizen-run e-community portal that has not taken a single sen of government (read: the rakyat) funds or subsidies to be who we are.
We use Open Sources tools and applications to run our dedicated servers. We aggregate efforts of collective volunteerism in running the portal. We advocate freedom of speech and provide the space for the community to talk to itself.
We just need sponsorship for hardware upgrades and high-traffic bandwidth.
