Room For Two

Room for two, please.

Are you expecting someone else, sir?
No.

But, why room for two?
I don't want to be alone. I want to be with my consciousness.

You don't need room for two for that one sir.
Have you ever been with your consciousness?

No sir.
There you go.

Here's your room for two, sir.

Learning Other Culture

One of the things I like about Discovery Channel (and their "friends") is that I can learn other culture. Like this morning. I watched a story about South Africa. I am trying to understand their struggle (as a nation) and how their future is going to be.

Looking at their limitation and how they are trying to progress gives us hope here in Indonesia. Our resources are much better then them, but how come we (Indonesia) are not thinking ahead. Many people think about themselves. I am not talking about them as individuals, but also as families. Not many people think about the future of the nation!

I am sure there are people like that, but they are just powerless or they are swampped with their daily lives. (Maybe I should say "we", instead of "them" since I am part of them myself.) We forgot to think what our nation will be in 10 or 100 years ahead.

Film or story like the one I've just watched is needed to renew our interest in building our nation. Are you with me? (Or ... this is just an impulse response after watching moving story? Maybe tomorrow I will forget what I am saying to day. Never mind ...)

We have to learn other culture to make us better. Let's move forward!

A Visit From MyCERT

I wanted to write this earlier in this blog, but did it in my other blog. Anyway, friends from MyCERT (Malaysia Computer Emergency Response Team - now known as CyberSecurity Malaysia) visited us in Bandung. Whoa! This is a surprise to me.

I knew that they had a presentation in Jakarta, but I didn't expect them to come here. I wanted to meet them, but I had to give presentations (in three days, straight). After my presentation, I took a travel car back to Bandung. Arrived in Bandung, I took a taxi cab heading home.

In front of the gate, a car pulled over. A bunch of guys came out from the car. There they are ... Time to take a picture first :) So here it is, a picture of Malaysian and Indonesian techies (white-hat hackers?)




Thanks guys for visiting us. Next time I'll visit Kuala Lumpur, I'll give you a call. In the mean time, let's do a follow up with collaboration between us.
