I’m back, after five years of this blog’s hiatus. I’ve been here and there, working here and there, messing up here and there :)
Productivity is kind of “dangerous” words for people like me, people who worked remotely. We never get accounted for our presence (except when we need to discuss something with our employer). Most of the time, deliverables are our presence.
So this is how I attempt to be productive :
In the beginning of this year (2013), just like everyone I’ve been making resolution to ourself. One of them is “I have to finish 12 books this year”, and guess what? it’s already December and I’ve only read 5 books. Well thats better than last year, but then it’s still below the target. So here I am with 7 more books to finish before the month’s end.
So to overcome that burden (its not supposed to called burden, but I like it that way) I decided to pick Dr. Seuss’ book so that the rest of the task is within grasp.
Lately I’ve been watching past google IO’s (or googletalk) video on youtube. Mostly I just want to see how engineer presenting their product or service on a convention. One of the first googletalk I watched is Linus’ talk about git, about why He doesn’t use the other version control (SVN). It is a very opinionated talk, but still very interesting though.
What is This with geek and nerd?
At some point in my twitter timeline I found someone posting geek vs nerd infographic. It reminds me of the first time I saw it, I just don’t like it. I don’t know why, perhaps I just tired seeing peoples trying so hard to earn statuses like “Geeks” or “Nerds” or “Gerds” or “Nerks”. I feel like it just waste of time. I’ve seen TwitWar from two groups of people (that I know of) debating on which one deserve the “Geek” Title.
Oh hi, hello there, world. There’re too many reason i’ve been changing blogging platform, from wordpress to tumblr no matter what, i think my will to write is just too low. I’ve never really want to write about anything, especially if my writing should be read by others, yes i hate that obviously (i’m an introvert). But my soon to be wife, let say she enlighten me about writing , she said that i need learn how to write, It’ll help me someday (or something like that). So here i am trying to write anything, let the little guy inside my head to swarm the internet.
