Rice University Study Queries Linux Community
Utpal (Paul) Dholakia, an Assistant Professor of Management at the Jones School of Management at Rice University in Houston, Texas, is "conducting an academic research project, studying social interactions online more generally, and specifically how communities organized around products or brands are formed, from a sociological perspective."

"In this regard, we are conducting a survey of people who belong to Internet-based Linux groups such as mailing lists, websites etc. seeking information on different elements of their thoughts, feelings, and motivations of participating in such groups, and the value of the group to them," Dholakia explained.

Dholakia emphasized that the survey is targeted especially at those individuals who interact with the more-or-less same group of individuals online within the mailing list or on some other online forum (more generally). That is, those who have online friends that they interact with regularly.

"Of course, our research is strictly academic, and has no commercial links or interests whatsoever. We hope to publish this research in a sociology journal," Dholakia said. "As a small token of our appreciation for participants' time, and in the spirit of the philosophy underlying the open-source movement, we will donate a total of $500 to the five favorite organizations/ groups of our participants' choice (we ask the participant's to nominate their favorite groups in the survey)."

Heh, semalam aku lupa masukkan entry ye?
Tajuk berita utusan hari ni: "Siva dipanggil ke Bukit Aman -- Polis tubuh pasukan khas siasat isu dakwaan pengasingan pelajar".
Hmm...dari roots sistem pendidikan pon dah ada pengasingan pelajar.
Kalau taknak bising, takyah la wujudkan Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Cina, atau Sekolah Jenis Kebangsaan Inda. Pastu bila kat sekolah ada segregation, nak siasat2 pulak. Tak ke pelik tu? Tak tau la...my two cents opinion, biar je bebudak india, cina, melayu duduk satu bumbung. Makan masa tu makan masa, tapi at least kalau try for 5 years ke, 10 years ke, tengok apa jadi...tak salah. Lagipun, we've been trying it out this way for generations, and the outcome is somewhat the same.

What? 120 bytes/seconds?? Slow gile internet semalam. Nak post ke website sendiri pun tak lepas. How unfortunate i'm only on 28.8kbps. But the management is preparing to change to wireless broadband 128K. I've got my MP3 list ready for action.

Well...

Hah! This is my first post. Aku pun tak tau ada faedah ke takde faedah buat website ala-ala journal ni. Belasah je.
For all those wondering who the hell i am: i live in malaysia, i work as a systems developer, and i i hope this web will give everyone updated of how i'm doing. (Hopefully, keep myself updated as well). Heh, dengan pertambahan kerja yang mendadak sejak akhir2 ni, memang tak sempat nak mengenali siapa diri sendiri.
