Help Google to help Malaysia

Does the title sounds interesting?

Thanks to Avijit Paul, I knew about this news, Googlers will come to Malaysia and need our little help. They want to collect Malaysian’s voice sample. I’ve once tried Voice Search in Google Maps Navigation Beta on Nazroll’s Nexus One. I must said it failed. I have to pronounce Kuala Lumpur or Ampang, the way John Doe pronounce it.

Now how to fix that ? How can Google detect fellow Malaysians speech slang?

Little contribution to Balsamiq

One of the assets I’ve been using is Balsamiq Mockups, to create Mockups for website development. Having use Flash for many years, all the tools provided are quite straight forward. So I suggested to them to create ‘ Grouped Items easily editable like Symbols in Flash ‘ in their Get Satisfaction, a website served for feedback. Right now the group/ungroup are quite tedious. Why not ‘enter’ the group and edit inside. I figured out, well base on my Flash experience, that would work better.

And now, Balsamiq implemented it and announced it here in their latest Balsamiq Mockup update. You may read the full update there.

That’s my Raison D’etre. Reason to live. I want myself to become meaningful and useful to others. I want to be missed by my contribution. And as supported by Prophet Muhammad Peace be Upon Him (PBUH) said,

The greatest human is those who become useful to others. / Sebaik-baik manusia adalah mereka yang memberi manfaat kepada manusia lain.

Or alternatively, you may hear Givers Gain.

Thank God for my brain.

P/S : I hope one day I able to become what people acknowledge as Forward Thinkers. That must be as equivalent standards as Scientist. But currently I didn’t see that much in myself.

P P/S: I can’t stop rhyming I should be rapping. <- sengal

P P P/S: Are you a website developer/designer/info-architects/workflow activist/whatever? Haven’t heard of Balsamiq Mockups??? I’ll say this, you missed one great piece of Mockups-development-software. Go on, click here.  ( no I’m not being paid for this line nor receive free software or betas )

Berfikir ke atas

Pelik tak tajuk tu? Teringat ada sekali dalam tahun 2008 rasanya aku mengajar Flash kepada pelajar2 UITM. Pengiring diorang berkenalan dengan aku dan saja sembang sembang. Kemudian dia tanya apa maksud Flavert, dan aku mengatakan Flash Vertical. Vertical = Paksi menegak. Dimana kitorang sentiasa mahu advancement ke atas.

Kemudian, beliau pun menerangkan biasanya orang berfikir secara ‘meluas’. Gaya pemikiran vertical / keatas akan menyebabkan pandangan aku sangat terhad. Aku tak boleh pandang kebawah dan ada dua kawasan pandangan sahaja. Manakala kalau konsep horizontal, dia boleh melihat depan, kiri, dan kanan. Fikirku mungkin sebab kita boleh kekiri dan kekanan dan melakukan kedua-duanya untuk kekal dalam garisan lurus ke depan.

Memang ada sebab aku berfikir keatas. Aku tidak fikir beliau salah. Masing2 ada pendapat sendiri. Tapi aku sekarang rasa makin faham dengan konsep berfikir keatas. (sendiri puji ke ? bwahaha ) At least aku hanya ada dua option, atas dan bawah. Kejap diatas, kejap dibawah sedikit dan kembali ke atas.

Cuma yang payahnya pendakian tu agak tinggi banding kekiri kekanan kedepan. Biarkan aku ber-retorik macam ahli politik.

Apapun, kalau korang tak sedar, Officekami makin banyak update. Paling latest aku ada bagi lightning talk pasal Officekami di Techcrunch Meetup KL.

Bagi aku, @officekami tu walaupun trend yang dah sedia ada, tapi trend Telecommuting masih kurang awareness di Malaysia. Dan itu salah satu hasil pemikiran keatas tu.

Selamat bekerja semua!
