Joget Digital untuk Dongkrak Popularitas 2009


Kalau hanya meluncurkan buku dan album lagu, ini mah sudah biasa. Coba bayangkan jika kandidat presiden yang akan datang kampanye dengan bantuan Dewi Persik meliuk-liuk dan bernyanyi mendesah, “Ah ah ah aku pilih ah ah ah…” dan kemudian klip video ini di-posting di YouTube.

Yang lebih ekstrem, seorang Amber Lee Ettinger bukan siapa-siapa sampai video klip seksi dirinya untuk mendukung Obama naik di YouTube. Hingga Januari 2008, lebih dari 5 juta orang ngeklik posting “I Got A Crush on Obama” ini. Sebaliknya, lebih banyak pencitraan buruk bagi Hillary Clinton dan kandidat lain yang sliweran di media interaktif ini (baca: blog dan YouTube). Satu hal yang perlu dicatat dari kompetisi kandidat presiden di sana kali ini adalah konsepsi “digital identity mapping”. Whuatzdat? A new format of reputation management, you guys… 

It’s your expression, publication, certification, audience, knowledge hubs all for a political campaign. Let’s sing along, shall we?

The lyrics to ‘Obama Girl’:

Obama: “Thank all of you for your time, your suggestions, your encouragement, and your prayers, and I look forward to continuing our conversation in the weeks and months to come.”

Hey B, it’s me.
If you’re there, pick up.
I was just watching you on C-SPAN
Sigh. Anyway, call me back.

You seem to float on to the floor
Democratic convention 2004
I’ve never wanted anybody more
than I want you

So I put down my Kerry sign
Knew I had to make you mine
So black and sexy, you’re so fine
Because I got a crush on Obama

[chorus]
I can’t wait til 2008
Baby you’re the best candidate
I like it when you get hot
With Hillary in debate
Why don’t you pick up the phone
Because I got a crush on Obama

I can’t wait til 2008
Baby you’re the best candidate
in the new oval office
you’ll get your head of state
I can’t leave you alone
Because I got a crush on Obama

You’re into border security
Let’s put this border between you and me
Universal healthcare reform
it makes me warm

You tell the truth unlike the right
You can love but you can fight
You can Barack with me tonight
I got a crush on Obama.

Co-working, Beybeh!


I study full time (half of it physically going to class, and half of it googling my way through anything).

I work also full time (half of it at home, and half of it going to physical office in Pondok Indah or Tebet or Sudirman).

Crazy?

Not really. I am (sort of) co-working with real people just to have ideas of anything. Sharing information I’ve learned during waking hours of working nights. I am studying for a formal degree, yet I am also learning from virtual teachers on the net. The idea of co-working came up when the network is matured and everyone is the ultimate decision maker of herself (like me). Click here for the recent study.

This is another Wiki (sort of) governance.  A word of its own, “quick” thus somewhere but anywhere. I am not opening a working space for others, yet I am providing myself a whole lot of work at different space (still) at flexible timing. Yes, Wiki-of-everything results: good performance over own personal drive in a so-called community.

Crazy?

I thnik so (typo is intentional).

 

Siapa paling berperan?


Tadi sore anak saya bertanya, “Siapa paling berperan dalam pendidikan anak?”

Sambil duduk santai di samping sang anak, suami saya menjawab, “Tulis saja: anak itu sendiri. Bapak sama Ibu juga. Bapak periksa PR kamu, Ibu periksa gizi yang masuk ke otak kamu. Pemerintah juga harus menyiapkan anggaran.  Kalau tidak cukup uang untuk beli buku baru harusnya…” Saya langsung tertawa terbahak-bahak! Edan. Anak kecil kok disuruh menjawab yang ribet. Walhasil, dengan muka polosnya anak saya menulis jawaban singkat: “anak”.

As simple as that.
