Setelah membaca tulisannya Pak Romi, saya jadi kepikiran apa jadinya bila youtube benar-benar ditutup aksesnya oleh pemerintah (Depkominfo, red)? Bila memang benar terjadi, maka ini adalah sebuah kemunduran dari dunia per-internet-an Indonesia.

Loh .. kok? Continue reading “Apajadinya bila youtube ….”
