Kalo baca posting di milis INHERENT (Indonesian Higher Education Network) misalnya, hampir sebagian besar membicarakan video conference (vicon).

My New Blog @ UG

Posted in Miscellaneous by mkusuma

As of today, every Gunadarma University staff can have their own blog, hosted in the university server. Thanks to the university, especially BAPSI which stands for Biro Administrasi Perencanaan dan Sistem Informasi or Bureau of Planning and Information Systems Administration. Keep rocking guys, particularly the Three “GUNDUL” Musketeers who worked really hard :D

Now I have my own new blog that I’m going to use for publishing my research and my personal opinions as well as information about many things. I hope that I have time to update the contents (classic story isn’t it?), so you won’t be disappointed when visiting my blog. Cheers.
