Long-time listener, first-time caller

20 08 2010

I have avoided writing a blog, actually.  I read bunches.  I have RSS feeds that stream blogs at me so much that every once in a while I give up and mark all as read.  I follow beauty blogs, political blogs, blogs specific to Indonesia, tech blogs, and economics blogs. From these I worried that I don’t have enough to say to have a blog.  Moreover, working in Public Diplomacy for the U.S. Embassy in Jakarta, I never wanted my blog to appear as representing official policy.

However, I want to apply for a job where they don’t just want experience in social media at work, but want proof that I have my own social networks, so I decided to start a blog.  I apologize in advance for adding to the sound and the fury, but I will attempt to say something relevant to someone, somewhere.


Hello, world!

When I saw that WordPress wanted to start with a “Hello, world!” I couldn’t help but think of the old “Hello, world!” programs. So, here are some:

10  “Hello, world!”

20 PRINT “Hello, world!”


#include <iostream.h>



cout << “Hello, world!”;

return 0;


<script type=”text/javascript”>
// Hello World in JavaScript
document.write(‘Hello, world’);

Anyway, hello.
