IT Gov OC 2b – Strategic IS Planning

without comments

Do not expect this long to continue this homework. This whole study thing has been constantly keeping my away from writing. Well, now here I am. So off we go. The current resources are the bottom half part of the original source site. What basically shown here are mostly master of information technology course materials under Muki’s time, joining with some of his other colleagues.
It’s quite a long list to repost, as the original source slotted some open course videos in which the sizes are quite huge for my blog concern. Some of the videos are not, therefore feasible to be seen here. I’m negotiating with university’s server management if I can get bigger space. But so far no answer from them. So again, please apologize if you can’t see all videos here. With a step wise maybe we’ll get a solution for that.
I understand if you probably can not wait too long post to get the resouces, while due to my own activity, it’s difficult to only dedicate my time to put all together. I wish for your understandinng, for I set myself to support Muki’s wish to spread all the knowledge to Indonesia.

Commemorating Muki (Arrianto Mukti Wibowo)

without comments

It’s striking me to know the news that you already leave forever from a friend. We did very few communications and, in fact we really never meet in person. One thing for sure though, we share the same interest in information system governance domain. But this unbelievably way of interaction does not hinder me to get a nice impression of how spiritful you are. Since then I claim myself as part of those who keep an eye to your website.  You even pave the road and the opportunity for community learning. You open all resources which are somewhat others might have kept in a securely locked top secret folder. This is what exactly I’m doing right now, broadcasting your knowledge to the whole universe. Trust me, I’m learning to follow your move.

Now the Almighty has decided to take you there. I don’t have any information of the cause of your leaving, but anyhow, I would say you are probably better there. God loves you more, and definitely, sending you there is much much best place to go. Please need not worry buddy, because you have stocked your own remembrance with a handful of fruitful, knowledge, which is long lasting and will not fad away or be corroded in any other way.

My thoughts and my heart sincerely are with you and your family. I cherish all the good things you have delivered to the world. Good bye Muki.
