Writing (blog) is a curse

I have just finished writing an article (comparison of free blog services - you can get it here [in Bahasa Indonesia]). For a simple article, it took me quite a while to finish it. Granted, I am learning CSS at the same time.

Now, here I am trying to finish reading books ("The Search: How Google and Its Rivals Rewrote the Rules of Business and Transformed Our Culture," "blink," and "Computer Forensics and Cyber Crime"). I need a place where I can concentrate. That means a place without computer and Internet. Combination of computer and Internet is so distracting. Mailing lists and blogs are distractions.

So here I am at Starbucks (Ciwalk - Bandung) with books, pen & paper, a notebook. A conventional paper-based notebook, that is. No computer. I know that there is a WiFi access here, but I just don't want to be disturbed by it. And you know what, I am writing this on a piece of paper. D@mn. Can't get away from it. The temptation of writing a blog entry is a curse.

BTW, I did finished reading two (or three) articles from Newsweek magazine. Those books are still waiting...

Himbauan Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia

Kepada Hacker & Cracker Indonesia & Malaysia,

Saya mengharapkan anda tidak melakukan penyerangan atau/dan pengrusakan situs-situs Indonesia dan Malaysia.

Saya mengerti bahwa akhir-akhir ini beberapa masalah di dunia nyata membuat kita kesal dan marah. Namun kekesalan tersebut sebaiknya tidak dilimpahkan ke dunia maya (cyberspace). Semestinya sebelum melakukan aksi yang berdampak negatif, kita bisa melakukan langkah-langkah positif seperti melakukan dialog (melalui email, mailing list, bulletin board, blog, dan media elektronik lainnya).

Kita harus ingat bahwa kita hidup bertetangga dan bersaudara. Yang namanya hidup bertetangga pasti mengalami perbedaan pendapat. Mari kita belajar bertetangga dengan baik.

Saya berharap agar kita yang hidup di dunia maya mencontohkan bagaimana kita menyelesaikan permasalahan dengan kepala dingin dan hati yang lapang, sehingga para pemimpin kita di dunia nyata dapat mencontoh penyelesaian damai. Mudah-mudahan mereka dapat lebih arif dan bijaksana da…

Yummy ...

Books, books, books

A snapshot of stacks and shelves of books that I have to read. The stack on the right side is actually on a chair. You can't see the bottom of it. It's a mess. Actually, it shows that I read them.
