Hate to fix PC other that my own.....

The problem of being a person that "knows" computer, is that. People just expect you to just fix the computer.

It is a problem especially for Asian, because it is rude to say NO. If it is not bad enough:
  1. We might not have extra stuff, like keyboard, monitor, etc. We actually rely on google too, so we need the extra gears
  2. They just assume it is easy to us
  3. They just assume we have windows disk, which I don't. Worst IT IS ILLEGAL TO SHARE.
How we can fix it.
  1. Force computer literacy to people. I hate to listen to people saying they don't need to know. If they know the basic of fixing car, what stop them, from learning the basic of computer.
  2. Give open source software to people, until proprietary software is more stable, and more affordable. Then problem will happen.
  3. If they are going to send computer for us to fix. Bring the WHOLE THING. Stop just bringing just the casing minus the keyboard and stuff.
Just a thought, just a rant...

BarcampKL: I'm SO There

Barcampkl will be held 4th April, in Inti College in Subang Jaya.

Barcamp is a event where everybody share, and learn. It is an unconference, where, everything is adhoc. The participant, tends to be tech people, and entrepreneur, but previously in Barcamp JB, we have a number of non-tech and non entrepreneur topic, it is also not commercial.

What make barcamp different is, it is organize by volunteer, and topic is from volunteer. It is free. And everyone is a participant. This is not  just a (un)conference, it is also a place to network with people. And you shall see, why we are all a fun loving people.

So if you want to learn, or have knowledge to share, come and enlighten us.
