March 30, 1998 (KUALA LUMPUR) — Microsoft Corp. chairman and CEO Bill Gates said the vision of Malaysia’s Multimedia Super Corridor (MSC) is in harmony with the concepts of the “digital nervous system” (DNS) and the “Web lifestyle” that he advocates.

Gates uses the term digital nervous system to describe how governments can employ technology to efficiently manage and use information, and how businesses can compete globally.

Speaking to about 3,000 people at the Putra World Trade Centre, on “The Connected Community,” he described living the Web lifestyle. He said people will rely on the Internet to interact online with the government and private companies from work or home.

Gates’ visit was part of a tour to Australia, Malaysia, Singapore and the Philippines.
