Infrastruktur


Setelah sekian lama tidak update blog ini, malam ini timbul kangen menulis tanpa dibayar 🙂

Beberapa presentasi saya di Slideshare.net telah dilihat dan diunduh beberapa kali. Hanya satu yang hari ini saya buka untuk diunduh, yaitu tentang “Telco & Media in Indonesia“. Bahan presentasi saya di kelas “Bisnis dan Industri Televisi” ini banyak diunduh tak hanya kalangan mahasiswa, tapi juga pebisnis… bahkan pebisnis telekomunikasi dari Norwegia! (FYI: Slideshare membolehkan siapa saja mengunduh slide asal kita mendaftar sebagai anggota Slideshare, dan kebanyakan kita menggunakan nama asli untuk bahan *serius*).

Kembali ke pebisnis telekomunikasi. Saya takjub dengan presentasi Hans Rosling di Ted.com beberapa waktu lalu. Rosling mampu menyajikan presentasi tentang statistik yang mudah dicerna. Presentasi saya tentang Telco (telecommunications company) dan Media di Indonesia itu sesungguhnya terinspirasi dari Rosling; bagaimana saya bisa menjejerkan dua sektor berbeda di era 1990-an dan batasan keduanya menjadi sumir hari ini. Yang lebih terpenting lagi, bagaimana saya melihat buruknya infrastruktur berbanding dengan kapasitas kemampuan negara ini, dibanding negara tetangga, Malaysia.

Saya yakin pemerintah masih punya niat baik untuk meneruskan Proyek Palapa Ring dan jalur kabel serat optik bawah laut Australia – Indonesia – Jepang, daripada selalu bottleneck di Singapura. Kedua proyek multiyears, multiplatform ini seharusnya lebih prioritas dari gedung wakil rakyat atau proyek-proyek renovasi fasilitas ini itu yang tak terkait langsung dengan kemaslahatan rakyat. Jika rakyat makmur, yakinlah pemerintah bisa merevisi kantornya di Planet Mars sekalipun.

Terakhir, pebisnis Eropa pun tak punya data akurat tentang industri telekomunikasi dan media di Indonesia hingga harus percaya saja dengan presentasi saya ke mahasiswa… *just kidding, guys*

 

Long Weekend: ?


Still had the same wonder everytime I passed by that area. Fifty men not working, sitting in warung. Sipping coffe or just smoking. Not doing anything only catching up same old, same old. Tonite I am still awake, tired but not sleepy. I conclude a new horizon about dialog on theory of economy. That Stephen Hawking shall come up with new theory of big bang particles and the rest of the universe. A dialog of Einstein and Newton. Of Milton Friedman and Robert M. Solow. Of me and my new pair of glasses.

This song keeps playing inside my head, “You had a bad day, you’re taking one down…” and I am having a ball today, exhaustively speaking. I feel very responsible seeing those men laying low while I wish I had more time and energy everyday to finish many things. I must read all materials on distribution theory. I must finish the proposal by 16th this month. I must meet someone err two people tomorrow. I must arrange the new column. I must go to my shopping arcade first thing in the morning, feed all the babies well (even the daddy), and I think any public-policy related topics are not for tonight’s writing. “Will you need a blue sky holiday? The point is they laugh at what you say… and I don’t need no carryin’ on…”

 
 

Waking Up: WordPress yourself


*yawn* Already Jan. 30. Just now, after a quick napping I made some hot tea. Need to freshen up to start writing a loooong due presentation.  Sipping my tea, I started reading J Kristiadi’s column (again) in Kompas Jan. 29. His writings always soft but sharp.

Thinking and putting thoughts into good writings required 3 things:

  • the thoughts (of course),
  • hard work (exercising in the brain is more than muscle-wise work), and
  • experience in writing (how many thousands of letters and rejections, this matters most).

I don’t like writing poem, btw. I used to. I don’t like writing journals. I used to, too. I just find it easier today to express thoughts in longer longer words. I hated the skyrocketting tempe price and kedelai v. corn; I wrote them. I searched long hours just to find out how agrobusiness really worked out. I wrote them in 10 minutes. I love the idea of sertifikasi guru, I wrote it. Many many more things I read and think in a day, I just wrote them. Thanks for sharing.
