Data is really junk. Not oil!

Some people still believe that data is the new oil, while I still believe that data is junk. Right now I am cleaning my computers. Removing files that are not needed. Uploading photos to Google Photos and Flicker, while archiving those that are deemed not important. And this is time consuming. Really.

Yes, even junk can be converted into money. But the effort is huge. I could upload my photos into Shutterstock, for example. Maybe somebody would pick up one of my photos and pay for it. But, this is just a long shot and the number of junk photos compared to the usable ones are just huge.

So, this is just my ramblings on Sundays. Cleaning my "oil" ... er, junk!

Graffiti in my heart

Used to let anybody writes anything in my heart
Used not to care
They're just graffiti in my heart

Then you came alon
You wrote something
Is it (going to be) a masterpiece
Or is it just another graffiti?

Masterpiece or just another graffiti (in my heart)?

First post in 2019

This is my first post in 2019. As you can tell, it is way too late. It's already February. That's how busy I am.

The thing is, I still tell people about this blog. And yet, I have not updated this blog. It is so ironic. Every time I wanted to write something, something came up and I forgot to do it.

This is simply a case of want something but have no time and energy to do it. I have to try harder.

Python Language

Finally, I decided to create a (YouTube) video. This time, it is about the Python programming language. In this video I talked about why Python is the language of today. (Not sure 5 years down the line.) Enjoy the video.


Unfortunately the video is in Bahasa Indonesia. When I have the time, I'll make an English version of this. Come to think of it, there are already tons of videos on Python in English. I don't think you'll need another one. I guess, I'll make more videos in Bahasa Indonesia then.

Coffee

I love coffee. Correction, I LOOOVVVEEE  coffee. There. I made it bold to show how much I love coffee. If you read my other blog (the Indonesian one), you might already know this.

As it happens, Bandung - the city where I live - is the best place to get black coffee. You may not believe this, but if you are here, you can see that every 50 meters there is going to be a coffee shop. Most of these coffee shops are using local coffee, Jawa Barat. Although many of them have coffee from other parts of Indonesia (and even outside Indonesia).

To show you the variety of coffee that we have here, here is a list of photos of coffee that I've just got recently. (Less than 1 month.) These are just samples. I have more.






As you can see, those coffee are from places in Indonesia. I tend to like coffee that are bold. Thus, I like the East part of Indonesia. These days, I like Flores and Papua.

Most of these coffee are still beans. You get grounded ones, but most people prefer to have them in beans…

Will Blog Again

Hi folks,
It has been years (not really) since last time I blogged here. (Mind you, my other blog - the Indonesian version - has also been slowed.) The classical "I am busy" excuse is being used here. While this is true, I think I should not use it. ha ha ha.

Now, I am planning to write more. Create videos and stuff. Basically, I want to generate more creative content. We'll see how it goes.

Cheers.

1st in 2018

I know I made too many promises; more posts for this blog. My excuse is a classic one, too busy. (And I've got other blogs to maintain too.) What can I do? I'll keep on making promises. ha ha ha. This year, it should be better than last year (2017).

Another thing I am considering is to create video blog. If this is the case, then this blog will have a lesser time. ha ha ha. Anyway, the vlog thing is still in a consideration-state. It may take some time to actually becoming reality. We'll see.

Anyway, this is my 1st post in 2018.
