One (book) down, more to go

I have just finished reading Malcom Gladwell's "Outliers" book. Phew... It's a good book, just like his previous books; "Blink" and "Tipping Point". I should've finished reading it sooner but all the busy work that I've got slowed me down. I am glad it's done. (I hope you don't think that I feel reading is a chore.)

Now, the next step is to pick a book from my to-read stack. Apparently, picking the next book is not easy. So, last night I took 5 books and started skimming those books. None wowed me. (Perhaps I was just too tired.) So this morning I brought another book with me. In the end I just read a few paragraphs from various book.

Arrrggghhh. I should be able to pick one book and read it! I'll do it as soon as possible. I have to do it to clean my to-read stack (which is impossible since I receive new books faster than I manage to read them).

Arrrggghhh...

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.
