    I don’t think I would pay $13 to renew KOEN.IM. Last year I only paid $3. Maybe I have a bit personal attachment to Isle of Man, the state of which CCTLD IM belongs to. This is an island, located between the Britain island and the Ireland, and governed under the British Crown, but is excluded from the United Kingdom (which means: it is not governed by the British Parliament). I might plan to visit this unique island, with its celtic culture. But that’s another story. For now, I guess, I have to terminate my domain.
    My tumblr page now has a new domain: KOEN.ASIA

    I plan to visit Malang on June 19th. Will provide an IEEE lecture on new convergence in my almamater: Brawijaya University. The term new convergence here refers to nth phase of digital convergence, in which we have to determine the position of IMS against SDP, SOA, Web 2.0, CDN of IPTV, etc. All digital IP-based network infrastructure and platform; yet without clear path of integration.
    Expecting a stormful discussion 🙂

    eMail, eFax, eGovernment, eElection, but also iTunes, iPhone, iMobile, etc. We’d say i represents the Internet, one step ahead of Electronics. Also i represents personality, humanness *heh* or I-ness.
    But honestly, I always read e as transcendental, and i as imaginary. So, are you working in unexplainable and irrational projects, or imaginary ones? Or both 😀

    In a week I haved moved the major non-personal sites that I manage: IEEE Indonesia Section, Comsoc Indonesia Chapter, Santri Indigo, Bagimu Guru, and Plasa Indigo. For the IEEE and Comsoc, I need a more secure host, and for the others I need a less secure but more flexible host. All sites were also redesigned. Now I will revive my old techwiki too.
    Maybe I also need to redesign my personal blogs 😉

    The same night last week, I was crossing the South China Sea. I just attended the IEEE Region 10 Meeting (Asia-Pacific) on Mactan Island, Cebu, Philippines; and then lead my way to WICON (Wireless Technology Conference) in Singapore. The interesting things about Cebu Meeting are the commitment to reform, both the organisation of the IEEE and its approaches to the members and the community. IEEE will be redirected back as the professional organisation that focuses not only to the academic world. Technology will focus on ones that are relevant to the present and to humanity.
    Unfortunately the transitions of the month and the country resulted to unattractive effect. Unusually, Singapore greeted me not very friendly. The arrogance of the academics was still felt. I was not complaining. But I realised there are works to do together. C’mon,let’s improve, enhance, and promote the organisation and our profession.

    Last night BBC interviewed me, again, via international voice. The previous ones were about Twitter, Tumbler, Nexus 1 (which I then forwarded to Aulia); and last night it was about 4G mobile. In my lectures I must explain it, in compressed version, in no less than 90 minutes. But now I only had 5-10 minutes to explain all aspects, in basic, to the listener. It was the 1st time I asked for a repeat to explain the concept, and accepted by Mr Arifin, the interviewer. In 10 minutes, I discussed the 4G requirements: data rate, cognitive spectrum, backward compatibility, OFDMA, MIMO, and other concept.
    I don’t think I would ever listen to the result of the interview. I hardly have time to listen to the radio or to watch TV.

    I have paid for the renewal of this blog’s domain: Means that I have been blogging here for a year. Positioned as my “travelling blog” :), this blog was almost always neglected when I was on the road :). iPhone effect, I guess. It is now easier to blog to my other sites using iPhone WordPress app, or to tweet using Tweetie or Tweetdeck on iPhone. Also I started writing at least one other blog as the child of

    Jedi are the guardians of peace in the galaxy.
    Jedi use their powers to defend and to protect.
    Jedi respect all life, in any form.
    Jedi serve others rather than ruling over them, for the good of the galaxy.
    Jedi seek to improve themselves through knowledge and training.

    In a country or an earth like this, sometimes we can still feel happy. I think even with more oppressions and depressions, we can somehow still find happiness. There must be happiness in societies under Stalin’s rule, Israel’s oppression, the German concentration camps, etc. As in the myth of Sisyphus. Even after we die, and being thrown into hell, we could somehow maintain happiness. Why not?
    What really set the sadness and joy, and happiness? Chemistry (about hormones, etc.), or at a higher layer: symbols manipulated in the brain? Both could be regulated by one or other ways. Heidegger was right when he implied that those who seek their own happiness have shallow minds.

    Oh, I don’t mean I know what would happen after death. Not at all. Death is most probably just nothing beyond death. Nothing. Purposeless. Just like this life: transient, short, the loops make us think & feel like being alive between non-existence and other non-existence. Purposeless. Enjoy it. Happily. Passionately! Purposefully! And celebrate our short-time living without regret :).
    Be true to yourself without afraid of death, of life, of anything.
