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…

Tweet: quantity or quality?

I have a hypothesis: if you tweet a lot, you get more followers.

Granted there has to be some kind of guidelines on what you tweet to attract followers. You would tweet something that you would think it's useful, at least to you. You wouldn't tweet something that you don't even want to read. Having that, I think quantity will attract more followers.

I have tested this in my blog. I have a blog that is considered popular, meaning it is in top 10 of Indonesian blogs. (Not this blog, but my other blog. The one you are currently reading is in top 100, though.) When I write more articles, I got a lot of visitors. I know this from the statistic page of wordpress. When I write less article, less visitors.

I thought if I write good articles, but less in number, I would attract more or the same number of visitors. It turned out, not. I got more visitors when I write lots of (so-so) articles. Thus, more attracts more.

Maybe, it is not the quantity, but the update is the important fa…

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…
