Looking at various sites / blogs / forums, I read complaints that smartphones and all those tech gadgets are anti-social. Hmm ... This is ALL WRONG. If you look closely, at the other end - and also using smartphones - are people. Not wall or dead objects. Human. They are socializing through smartphones. It's just that most people see they are talking to the device. No! They are communicating...
kenapa ya kok kita sibuuukkk ingin tahu kabinet? ini hanya sekedar untuk menunjukkan betapa hausnya kita akan informasi.
Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook (as if you need this introduction - ha ha ha), is Indonesia. He met with our next president, Joko Widodo - famously called Jokowi, in Jakarta. Joko Widodo will be sworn as our president on Oct 20th. One of the photos that made me laugh (happy laugh) is this. In this picture, Jokowi showed Mark some kind of pants (I think it's a pair of jeans) from a small...

A couple weeks ago, friends came to Bandung and asked me what's new in Bandung. They were looking for something to eat. My answer was ... "Mafia Fried Rice" (Nasi Goreng Mafia). Where can you get it? Krang Kring cafe is one of them. To be frankly, I haven't had a chance to test it myself. I heard it is spicy. Well, my stomach is very sensitive to spicy food. Ugh. So there is a chance that I...
Bandung is a food barometer in Indonesia. Well, not just food, but also fashion. This post is the food side. Next time, I'll post the fashion side. I am so glad that I live in this city. The new food buzz in Bandung is Bon Chon. This is a Korean-franchised fast food. It's the Korean KFC, sort of. Their favorite menu is the honey-glazed chicken. It's sweet and a little better compared to KFC, in..
Just got back from Singapore. We flew from Singapore to Jakarta and went back to Bandung using train. The Argo Parahyangan train was okay. Lots of tourists were on the train. Arrived in Bandung, we decided to take taxi to our home. It has been a while since I took taxi from this train station. I didn't know what to do. So, when we were just off the gate, we were swarmed by unofficial taxi...
This blog has been distracted for a while. At one point I have not touched this blog for quite a while because I have another blog to maintain. But, then I remember the purpuse of this blog; to share my knowledge about Indonesia (for those who are far away from Indonesia). I was away from Indonesia for quite a while. At that time, late 80s early 90s, there was no World Wide Web. Email was also...

This afternoon, I am going to give a talk on technopreneurship at Institut Teknologi Bandung (ITB). One of the points that I am going to address is when to start. Many people have plans and dreams of becoming an entrepreneur but never actually made it. They wait for the perfect moment to jump. Well, there's no perfect moment. You have to get out of your comfort zone. There's a saying, "Life...
For those who are not Indonesians or not in Indonesia may not know that presidential election is coming real soon. 9th of July 2014. And apparently there have been lots of negative and black campaign over the internet. Mostly on social media. Everyday, no correction ... every minute! there is a post on the candidates, followed by flurry of pro and contra messages. Then, the brawl began. Hate...
Pemilhan presiden sudah dekat. Salah satu calon yang muncul adalah Joko Widodo - atau lebih dikenal dengan nama singkatannya Jokowi. Banyak orang yang menyukai Jokowi. Namun salah satu kendala yang ada adalah orang juga kurang suka dengan partainya, yaitu Partai Demokrasi Indonesia - Perjuangan (PDI-P). Ada banyak pengalaman buruk dengan partai ini. Kombinasi ini yang membuat orang menjadi ragu...
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...
While the world is becoming faster, internet-wise, here in Indonesia things are still slow. I still cannot open Google+. Seriously. Nobody believed me. Now, I found the proof. Here's an infograph I found on the internet (need URL). As you can see, we are still a hippo(?). We are even slower than Vietnam. Ouch. With this condition, it is important to design applications. Your application...
I just got back from  InnovFest 2014 reception (dinner). One of the frequently questions I got was if I were from a business incubator. I said I am not. I am just a technopreneur and a mentor for several startups. Then, I keep on thinking, do we really need a business incubator? Business incubators are similar to incubators used for premature babies. They are used to give those babies fighting.
Today, April 9, 2014 is election day in Indonesia. While many people will not vote, there are more people who are going to election booths. You'll see lots of tweets (twitter of course) and posts on Facebook, Path, and the like. Myself? I have just got back from voting booth a few minutes ago. God Bless Indonesia ...
