Back @ home

Finally I’ve arrived back in Indonesia, actually since 29th January. I’m already very busy doing consulting work for Abang Adek and Rayspeed Ltd, currently in charge of building at least 4 computer systems.

So, sadly, you can expect this journal to be updated less often. But, I’m quite certain that it will be worth it, especially since 2 of the projects will be released with open source (most likely GPL) license. It’ll take a while though.

  1. Harry, welcome back 🙂 Kapan nih kita ngumpul2? Gue sekarang di cinere bareng 2 anak dan istri gue. Salam ya buat semuanya, terutama your parents – just as old as mine too. Wassalamu’alaikum!

  2. Indonesia houses the most extensive rainforest cover in all of Asia, though it is rapidly developing these lands to accommodate its increasing population and growing economy.

  3. Indonesia’s forests are being degraded and destroyed by logging, mining operations, large-scale agricultural plantations, colonization, and subsistence activities like shifting agriculture and cutting for fuelwood. Rainforest cover has steadily declined since the 1960s when 82 percent of the country was covered with forest, to 68 percent in 1982, to 53 percent in 1995, and 49 percent today. Much of this remaining cover consists of logged-over and degraded forest.

  4. Indonesia’s forests face a discouragingly grim future. While the country has nearly 400 protected areas, the sanctity of these reserves is virtually nonexistent. With its wildlife, forests, coral reefs, cultural attractions, and warm seas, Indonesia has tremendous potential for eco-tourism, but to date most tourism is focused on cheap beach holidays. Sex tourism is a problem in parts of the country, and tourism itself has caused social issues and environmental problems from forest clearing, mangrove development, pollution, and resort construction.
