Singapore to monitor Pokemon Go. For what?

Reference: How can the Singapore government monitor Pokemon Go?
I can’t believe I’m defending Minister Yaacob Ibrahim’s Pok√©mon Go comments

This is what happens when there's a business so powerful that it can cause disruption in Singapore. Just like when Airbnb and Uber entered Singapore, they had to be monitored. Now we're monitoring a video game.

Rather than thinking of how we can MANAGE these technology disruptors, why not focus our resource on how we can create these businesses instead? How can we promote creativity and entrepreneurship in our country to come out with business that make an impact around the world?
