My Problem With (Digital) Reading

I love reading, but these days I find it more difficult for me to read. First, the materials that I have to read increases. I thought, by the time you're older, you'll get less and less books to read. Or, perhaps the pace of everything is so fast that there are more things to read.

Second, and the most important one, is that I don't like reading sitting in a chair. I love reading lying down in my sofa or even on a carpet. I could not do that with documents that I have on my computer(s). Yes, I have a tablet that I can use to access these digital documents, but even with tablet I still have difficulties - mostly in going back and forth between pages.

I still love paper-based books. It's just not practical to print my digital documents. Now, I am stuck and complaining here. And I have to type this in front of my desktop computer. 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.
