Black Campaign Againts Jokowi

Presidential election is coming here in Indonesia. One of the strongest candidates is Joko Widodo or Jokowi. Unfortunately, there are a lot of black campaign against him over the internet. Sadly, many people believe this misinformation.

Here is a list of some of them.

  • The SMK car. Jokowi was accused of using the popularity of car built by SMK students and now people are accusing that it is actually a Chinese made car.
    Here is the real story behind it. Yeah, I know about this since I was doing the IT-version of this (for SMK).
  • Jokowi was issued as the son of Oey Hong Liong. This is a bit funny, because Oey Hong Liong is a rich person and you can find his information to find that this is untrue. He's not that old compared to Jokowi. If this is true, he would have had Jokowi when he was 14-years old.
    (Need link for clarification)
  • Fake orbituary of Jokowi. It is sad that people are doing this. How do you feel if this is done to your father, son, or husband? Here is a clarification of someone who was accused of creating it (but she was not).
  • Jokowi was accused by some to be non-Muslim. His hajj was fake. And so on.
    Here is a picture showing Jokowi and Tantowi Yahya went to hajj. A scanned version of his marriage certificate was also shown to show that he is a Muslim. And here's also another article to show that he is a Muslim.
  • When visiting KH Maimoen Zubair (Mbah Mun of PPP), Jokowi was allowed to pray in his room. Then the black campaign news said that mbah Mun was forced to allow Jokowi to pray in his room.
    It was again a black campaign. Here's the clarification.
  • Jokowi supporter was accused of thretening Islam if he is elected. This issue was thrown by "@jasmevnew2014".
    The reality is that it is a fake account. Notice the word "new" in the account. The real Jokowi supporter account is "@jasmev2014". It is easy to ignore this fact. Note: jasmev = Jokowi Advanced Social Media Volunteers for 2014 Presidential Election
  • Video of Jokowi's interview was manipulated
  • ...
I am sure there will be more. (Will be documented here.) I just wish that people are more careful when they are reading things on the internet. Check and re-check. Go to credible sources.

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…

Band progressive rock baru?

Lepas dari yang serius-serius sebentar. Kita ke musik lagi.

Terus terang saya tadinya mulai merasa bahwa musik progressive rock bakalan mati. Seperti lirik dari lagu band Asia - "Rock and Roll Dream":

When I see your faces from the limousine. No chance of our survival...

Tapi setelah saya mendengarkan The Flower Kings, harapan tumbuh lagi. Band yang dimotori oleh Roine Stolt (gitar) memiliki nuansa (melodi?) yang selaras dengan band-band terdahulu. Mereka sanggup membawakan lagu Cinema Show-nya Genesis dengan sempurna. Bahkan lebih baik menurut saya. Jadi, para penggemar sekalian, progressive rock akan tetap tumbuh subur.

Roine Stolt juga menjadi bagian dari band Transatlantic yang juga memiliki nuansa progressive rock. Maklum, mereka campuran dari Dream Theater, Marillion, The Flower Kings, dan Spock's Beard. Meski, ada lagu bootleged live show mereka yang kedodoran membawakan lagu "Firth of Fifth" nya Genesis. Ternyata band besar bisa kedodoran juga.

Repotnya, mus…

How I work, study, and listen to music

I always tell my students to find the most suitable ways to study. Sometimes, they way we study (or work) may look strange to "normal" people. So be it. Don't worry about it.

I remembered a story about a poet who always use paper with different colors when he typed his poem on his typewritter. (I guess this is a pre-computer/Internet era, eh?) He did that to make him more productive. There is no direct relation between the color of papers and productivity. You'll be crazy to research about this.

So, now here's what I do. I like fonts a lot. So when I type something on my computer, sometimes I use different fonts. At the end of the day, I converted the fonts back to the "standard" ones so that whatever I write - reports, papers, or just notes - can be shared and worked on by other people. That is why the use of "paragraph styling / formating" in word processor is important to me, because with one change I could change the whole document. Many peo…
