First playlist on Guvera, 23 songs, thinking of doing a top 40 like the old days but a lot of songs are missing and the years on the albums and tracks are not necessarily release years. Also, many songs are not from the original album but from remastered, re-released, and compilation albums.
You know what, this calls for a hunt for those NOW CD series.
If only there’s a way to look up those old Prambors or Rick Dee’s weekly top 40 charts online for every month of the decade. One chart for each month because weekly would be redundant. – View on Path.
Life is a pitch. It’s all about convincing people about your idea no matter what you do. Want people to buy you something? Need money? Want a pet? Have an ad concept? Wanna build a business? Want a girl or boyfriend? Wanna get married? Pitch.
So a few years ago I wondered if this idea would work: live entirely based on crowd funding, getting people (not employers) to pay you every month to do what you want to do. Sounds kinda crazy. Shopped the idea around to a handful of people and they all said I was crazy. Nobody would want to fund other people’s life that way.
Today I found out that in May 2013, a site that does exactly that was launched. It’s called Patreon. The aim is to bring the old patronage system back and give it a modern spin. Everything would be tracked and the site owners take 8% fee from each pledge; 3% credit card processing and 5% commission which they say goes to running and maintaining the site.
Patreon is dedicated to funding artists or creators, people who make things, basically, and it can be pretty much anything as long as it’s continuous. The patrons can stop funding any time.
I don’t know how popular it is and it’s only been up for less than a year, so its success has yet to be entirely determined. Will be keeping an eye on this.
Why isn’t there an app to monitor your daily electricity usage which can be mapped to your calendar app and and provides you with fancy historical and projection charts so you can properly track your consumption and budget your usage more easily?
I mean these days new dwellings use prepaid electricity, so this sort of app would be something most people would find extremely useful.
The principle of this applies also to apps for prepaid voice and data subscriptions but currently apps for those only provide data consumption against allocated quota as opposed to showing actual daily data usage. with Deddy, Cak Uding, Evan, and Dolly Surya – Read on Path.
Indonesian minister for communications and informatics asked condescendingly on Twitter what people would do with fast internet connection.
This is the same government minister who linked immorality to natural disasters.
This is the same government minister who claimed to have blocked online porn in Indonesia.
This is the same government minister who said it wasn’t his choice to shake Michelle Obama’s hand on her visit to the country.
This is the same government minister who said it was a waste of money to fight AIDS.
And now he’s asking on Twitter why people want fast internet access as if it has no real benefit.
