Becoming a star because of YouTube

I guess, you all have familiar with this case; somebody posted a video on YouTube and s/he became popular. Well, it happened (and is still happening) in Indonesia. This time, the star is Briptu Norman from Gorontalo.

A video of Briptu Norman lipsyncing an Indian song was posted. (You can use your favorite search engine to find the video.) Apparently, people loved the way he "performed" in the video. Entertaining. And suddenly, all news and TV media wanted to show case him in their shows. He was brought to Jakarta and was asked to sing and dance just like in the video that was posted in YouTube.

Norman is an officer in Brimob (Brigade Mobile, an Indonesian National Police special operations force units). His commanding officer(s) support him because this gives a good public relationship, showing the human side of Policeman.

So there you go. Another case of a star was born because of YouTube.

It's a pity that Norman did not pursue his career as a singer. I haven't heard of him for a while now. However I do respect his decision of going back to his hometown

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.
