kaFE depok on top 100 Indonesia's english blog

Some blogwalking lead admin to Indonesia Matters that came up with top 100 blog composite index from various indicators.

Surprise came when kaFE depok is listed today at rank 30 on the top 100 Indonesia's english blog. After all we are still so young, dealing with specific subject (albeit with all the quasi extensions) and could be more active. There are certainly a lot more worthy blog to rank higher than us.

The honor surely motivate us to climb higher (in term of quality and quantity) and dig deeper into more queries on the multi facet of the economic life. Thanks for all the readers, your visits and comments are always appreciated.

The Ballad of John and Joko

John and Joko live far away from each other, so they use postal services to communicate with each other.

Joko have another friend name Jamal that live closer to him but also communicate by letter. Lately there have been instances where Joko’s package could not deliver to Jamal due to oversize packaging.

John is worry whether the next package to him would be oversize too, so he asks Joko to stop sending him momentarily until there is a checking system (ex: always measures the size before delivery) that ensure size compliance.

Instead of asking another person known and trusted by both John and Joko to verified whether a good checking and compliance system is in place, Joko is furious and threaten to no longer accept package from John until he can send one.

Joko could end up sending none and receiving none.

Fictitious? Silly? Just change Joko to Indonesia, John to EU, package to international flight and size to safety. And you get this story (click here).

In March I already wrote on what to be done (click here). Apparently some people go back and forth without delivering much (click here)
