Blog Anubis’ Louai Alasfahani Tells It How It Is

By: Copyranter.
Monday, 28 March 2011
I catch up with Louai Alasfahani at the Dubai Lynx 2011 and ask him about his thoughts of this year’s work as well as the future of the region’s creative.
Like him or hate him, you gotta respect this man for just telling it how it is. If you don’t know who Louai is, all you have to do is google his name or just check out his blog at: http://bloganubis.com/ 

Louai’s blog broke the story on FP7’s Fadi Yaish and the scam work which tainted our region a couple of years back. The scandal ultimately created a massive shake up at FP7 and eventually forced Dubai Lynx to revoke FP7’s ‘Agency of the Year’ accolade as well as various awards and ban them from entering any work into the Lynx.

To put it bluntly, bloganubis will name and shame you if your cheating in the region. Check out Louai’s blog and his thoughts here (sorry for butchering your name Louai).
