On Adversity

The Situ Gintung tragedy, as with other events of adversity, reveals many aspects of human traits and behaviors. There are those who are quick in providing any form of assistance without being so fussy about everything else, those who are quick in throwing out words, pointing fingers and put all the blames to whoever and whatever they are, except themselves, or those who use disastrous event like this to do business or build names or for things that would give benefit to them, and so forth. There are plenty of choices, and people have freedom to choose.

The Path

It was just a few weeks back when someone asked a seemingly simple question, and yet it's so damn difficult for me to find a good answer for it. It's mainly because I haven't put enough thought about it again, and I my inner state was far different from the last time I gave reply to the same question. Hence I was frozen for a few moments. The fact is that simple things all of sudden can be very complicated and on the other hand complicated matters can also be astonishingly simple ones.

Tweetback Button Inside Post

I didn't touch my Twitter account for months, was not aware that it could be used to promote a new posting to fellow users, and didn't know that it could also be used to measure a posting popularity, until the day I found out that the Indonesia Matters has changed its blog ranks criteria to include Twitter Back Tweets.

Disbelief and humiliated, those were among the first responses that came into everybody's mind on hearing the news of bomb explosion at JW Marriott and Ritz Carlton Hotel, Jakarta, on Friday morning. Deep sympathy to the victims and their families, who were killed and wounded in the blast, were poured. The Jakartans and the Indonesian people in general were deeply wounded again with this act of violence.
