The thinking behind collection building as we know it would mean to identify certain parameters to determine our gaps and requirements. Without going into so much details the new perspectives of today is to make sure we are covering new tools and channels like Facebook, Blogs, Wiki, Webinar, Podcast and the like. Also comprehensiveness today could mean never to physically own a single physical content or any content. The idea of having a distributed collection is a possible reality. Thus we need to have a new paradigm in our thinking process. This brings me to the topic of strategic insights which many thoughts to be conveyed, presented and thought out comprehensively. In this challenged environment comprehensiveness in strategic planning is a misgiving conclusion as well as something that is not possible. How can you deem your plan to be comprehensive with the parameters around it that are fluid and dynamic? Also, too much control and always demanding for ROI would make it worse.

I saw two persons reading today and both were ladies. Boys and men were being, at least they thought they were, macho again. I did not know what good that going to be for them.
I was seriously thinking that I have to start to make what I believe and expert in solve real Malaysian problems. I would be a tall order but if I would want to remain certain I have to do it. It is the real test of my raison d’etre.

For whatever reason today I was drained, physically and mentally. There I was sitting in the office late in the evening mentally tired waiting for my laptop to shutdown so that I could go home. Although quantity wise I did not do much but my brain was working overtime. When I boarded the train it was almost empty and I just let loose until I decided to type this.
The train was almost to the full capacity when we were at KL Sentral. Boarded was a group on an Indian youth along with their natural instinct wanting to have fun. But they over did it my putting the handphone speaker on to play their music. Since my ears were plugged I did not mind and enjoying my own music but it could be annoying to others in the train. They got down at Serdang and immediately the train was quiet and everyone was in their own thoughts or tired demeanors. If I had the ability to read minds I could hear all sorts of troubled mind waves crisscrossing in the train. The lady on my left was worried about her event. She keep on looking, thinking and texting to somebody, I guess, about the event. The lady on my right had her mind in never neverland as she was slepping most of the time. A man in front of me was thinking what the hell I was typing he he he. My mind was actually still in a thinking mode rushing from one thought to another. But deep in my mind was the thought of pushing the KM agenda further.
It was at Kajang station when I looked up and out that I saw the evening yellow sunset. My stare was too long and fixed that the girl in front of me thought I was staring at her. The wonder of Allah, thing so simple can be so beautiful. It took away some of the stress.

So I stepped onto a hot metal container KTMB called a carriage. I tried to walk down to another carriage but was told it was hot as well so I did not bother and sat myself down to type this piece. When we about to reach KL Sentral an attendant came by to ask where I was going and when I said Bangi he advised me that the last carriage has it’s air conditioner working. I thanked him but did bother to move. I had been in worse so another one won’t matter.
