Here I wrote my thoughts regarding SOA (Service Oriented Architecture) in Ministry of Education, which may be good to be shared.
Basically, I tried to identify issues in a ministry of education. Then I wondered whether computing system adopting SOA could contribute to addressing the issues. I consulted the issues from, first, notes made by Brotosiswojo who was an officer in the ministry of education in Indonesia for about 20 years. Also, I consulted some notes by Drost, whom, although I’ve never met, I admired. From his notes, and from hearing from other people’s stories, I think Drost is a person who has strong determination to improve the quality of life of people. Although the issues were in Indonesia, I believe to some extent they are also found in other countries.

Hearing so many arguments about war and terrorism these days, from newspapers, TV, emails, etc. that feel so.. confusing
What to hold?
A message from Pope John Paul II “For the Celebration of the World Day of Peace” a few years ago feels so.. universal:
“..individuals are essentially social beings, situated within a pattern of relationships through which they express themselves in ways both good and bad. Consequently, society too is absolutely in need of forgiveness.”
“Forgiveness in fact always involves an apparent short-term loss for a real long-term gain. Violence is the exact opposite; opting as it does for an apparent shortâ€‘term gain it involves a real and permanent loss. Forgiveness may seem like weakness, but it demands great spiritual strength and moral courage, both in granting it and in accepting it.”
“No peace without justice, no justice without forgiveness..”
