Build Your Next Website with React, GatsbyJS, and Netlify
My very first public speaking appearance, a talk I did during the #36 JakartaJS meetup. Here I talk about GatsbyJS, which powers the very website you’re on right now, as well as some really cool stuff that you can do with it.
This talk is brought to you by the letters “u”, and “h”.
Spiritualized - Ladies and Gentlemen We Are Floating in Space
Do you ever have this song that you randomly encounter out of the blue one day, but you’re SURE you’ve heard it somewhere before, a long time ago?
This is one of them. Especially that ending, where it fades to a beautiful cover of “I Can’t Help Falling in Love”.
I’ve learned a little bit afterwards that the song was used as a soundtrack for Vanilla Sky, but I never remembered ever watching it.
CELUP (Cekrek, Lapor, Upload - lit: Capture, Report, Upload) was a viral campaign that has caused quite some stir in Indonesia. In encouraged netizens to take photos of unknowing couples engaging in public displays of affection and upload them to the internet.
Obviously, this sparked a public outrage since the campaign had crossed into the territory of invasion of privacy. And now, after the closure of its Instagram account, I feel the need to share the above article, which contains a good write-up about the whole kerfuffle.
So I pulled in some of my photos from my website’s git repository, but for some reason they turned out glitched and the results are, well, spectacular.
Oh wow, loving these new Formula E graphics!
F1 fans right now.
Okay, a bit of an unpopular opinion: I don’t think the new F1 logo is bad at all.
After reading through this article and seeing the whole rationale behind it, I can actually see how much the whole thing made sense and how the logo blends well with the graphics. Someone on Mastodon also brought up a good point about what the logo actually represents.
I guess it’s just my immediate reaction to anything resembling retro-futuristic, Wipeout-like aesthetic, but still, I just don’t get all the hate behind it.
Ever wonder how Bitcoin (and other cryptocurrencies) actually work?
This was by far, the most comprehensive video that I’ve ever watched explaining how the blockchain works.
I’m giving Firefox Quantum a try and I’m hugely impressed! It’s a massive improvement over the old Firefox, so much so that it’s actually usable now.
I’m going to set Chrome aside and let it be my default browser for about a week. You should give it a try too! https://www.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/
Welcome to the new resir014.xyz!
What you’re seeing here is an experiment in new ways of blogging. The whole idea came after reading through this post, which made me consider restructuring the way I do online content. From now on, expect tiny pieces of free-form posts like this, which I call “Bits.” I will still do long-form blog posts, although they will be much less often than usual.
See you online!
