Getting Older

It takes time to heal when you're older. Physically, that is. But, mentally, the time it heals could be the same. It may even be possible faster. This creates frustration. Mentally, you are ready to work, but physically you're not ready. Aaarrrggghhh.

To Questions

Many people ask questions because of many reasons; to look smart, to look important, or to test another person ... other things. On the other hand, I ask questions because I don't know. As simple as that. Most people would not believe that because they think I know many things. That is true, but when I learn new things, they are usually come with new questions. So, if originally I have 5 questions and answer 1 question, I actually end up with 3 more questions. Now, I have 7 questions. The number of questions grows. I don't mind that I have more questions than when it was started. That is not my problem. The problem is that people do not want to answer my question because they think that they are being tested. They become defensive and I don't get the answer. That is the reasons for me writing this blurb. So, I asked a question, I do need help finding the answer(s).

2022 is here

Yes, I am still alive and well. But, how come I seemed to abandon this blog? My energy was focused on my YouTube channel. It's in https://youtube.com/user/rahard. Year 2020 and 2021 were the time I was trying to understand the YouTube behavior. Now, I got it up and running. It is time to resurrect my blogs; this one and the one in medium. Blogger (Blogspot) seems to be way behind Medium in terms of user experience (and look-and-feel too). Thus, I am inclining to write on my Medium account. I just wish there is a way to make me interested to write in this blog. Really. Maybe a better template? Or at least, look and feel. Oh well.

Blog to Vlog

 It is official that I am having difficulties in keep on blogging. These days I am doing vlog almost everyday. My way to create vlog is just shoot the video and upload. No edit. That is way I am so productive in generating vlog. This used to be time consuming, if I have to do more edits. I am still trying to keep this blog. I should post more, which is at least one a month. No promises, though. So, see you next month. Or earlier. Ha ha ha.

Starting to Podcast

I've been searching for ways to do podcasting. Years actually, but I could not find an easy way to do a podcacst. I am a techie person. If I cannot do it, then it is going to be difficult for ordinary person to do a podcast. Enter anchor.fm. I am not sure how I came across anchor.fm, but this is the solution that I am looking for. If you want to do a podcast, all you have to do is record your voice in a file and then upload the file to anchor.fm. That's it. They will distribute your podcast to all kinds of podcasting sites. Spotify is one of them. Interesting. Then, I realized that anchor.fm is actually part of Spotify. Ha. Now, I am podcasting. It's in here: https://anchor.fm/budi-rahardjo What I do is actually take the audio part of my YouTube videos and upload them to anchor.fm. Most of my YouTube videos do not need the video parts. They can be listened to. So, that's what I do. Enjoy.

Discussing New WhatsApp Privacy Policy

Last night, I was part of a discussion on the new WhatsApp (WA)'s privacy policy. What is the impact to all of us. My points were actually the same as the one posted in my blog. ( Here . In Bahasa Indonesia.) It's just a different audience and different way of delivering the content.   Anyway, I hope the event is useful to the audience. On to next topics.

Darn you Netflix

For the last a couple of weeks, I've been wasting my time watching Netflix. Our family has subscribed to Netflix a few months ago, but we didn't watch it seriously. At least, I didn't. But, for the last weeks (I think it's more than 2 weeks) I have been watching Netflix. What do I watch? Many things. Nothing new, actually. For example, yesterday I have just finished watching Sherlock Holmes, the TV series. I should list movies that I watched. Just for the references. Classes are starting today. I am teaching 4 (or possibly 5) classes. I should stop watching Netflix. But, I wouldn't cancel my subscription yet. I know it is expensive compared to Disney's Hotstar. I know. Let's just wait and see.
