    5 Oktober 2014, bertepatan dengan hari lahir TNI yang ke-69. Postingan ini saya himpun dari beberapa sumber untuk sekedar mengkilas balik tentang sejarah kelahirannya dan sekaligus untuk menyegarkan ingatan kita yang akhir-akhir ini cenderung termarginalkan.Dirgahayu 69 Tahun TNI Negara Indonesia pada awal berdirinya sama sekali tidak mempunyai kesatuan tentara. Badan Keamanan Rakyat yang dibentuk dalam sidang PPKI tanggal 22 Agustus 1945 dan diumumkan oleh Presiden pada tanggal 23 Agustus 1945 bukanlah tentara sebagai suatu organisasi kemiliteran yang resmi. Dirgahayu 69 Tahun TNIBKR…

    29 Oct 2014 | 5:50 pm
    Gue pikir argumen “ngga apa-apa tatoan dan merokok asal kerjanya sebagai mentri benar” itu berat sebelah dan egois. Mereka itu mentri yang merupakan pemimpin dan kalau gue ngga salah mengingat, Pak Jokowi & JK sendiri yang bilang di debat calon presiden bahwa yang dibutuhkan Indonesia adalah pemimpin yang memimpin dengan teladan. Lu yang udah cukup umur dan bisa menghidupi diri lu sendiri bisa ngomong sesuka hati bahwa itu hak dan privasi Ibu mentri. Tapi yang bersangkutan itu teladan. Lu bayangin kalo beberapa anak SD ((Anak SD jaman sekarang kelakuannya ngga bisa diprediksi karena…

  • Terlalu Aktif di Media Sosial Karena Kurang Perhatian?

    Fikri Rasyid
    25 Oct 2014 | 10:20 pm
    Setiap kali ngeliat orang yang terlalu sering nge-posting hal-hal personal dan emosional di media sosial (Apapun itu: Facebook, Twitter, BBM, atau Path), pertanyaan pertama kali terpikir oleh gue: Apa yang menyebabkan orang ini sering-sering amat nge-posting di media sosial? Hipotesis sementara gue saat ini: penyebabnya karena kurang perhatian di luar media sosial ((Dikotomi dunia maya vs dunia nyata sounds incorrect, IMO. Hence the "di media sosial" dan "di luar media sosial" thing)). I think of this as the answer because I had been there: I was someone who post too much on social media.

    Sejak resmi melakukan perubahan nama dan logo pada Mei 2014 lalu, platform online classified ads OLX Indonesia (dahulu bernama Tokobagus) mengklaim tak banyak kendala berarti yang ditemuinya perihal brand awareness di masyarakat.
