Indonesia Anonymus

We are a group of Indonesians, ranting about our beloved country. This blog is a result of many people grumbling about many things in many ways.

Anonymus is the Latin word for anonymous, the correct English spelling. The Latin spelling, however, is traditionally used by scholars in the humanities to refer to an ancient writer whose name is not known, or to a manuscript of their work. Read more at Wikipedia.

We Don't Fit

We unfortunately are too busy slaving away again. But we love to blog, so let's have a short one.

The other day a colleague showed us the Jakarta Post's reader's profile [1]. Have you seen it?
It's interesting.

Apparently, if you are a reader of the Jakarta Post, chances are :

You are an Indonesian man, married, and above 50 years of age. You have the newspaper delivered to your home, and you read it every morning.
You have a post-graduate degree, hold a job (very possibly a senior position) , and -- read this -- you spend more than 10 million a month in household expenditure...

Eh? more than 10 million? Each month?

We read the Jakarta Post, you see.

Now we are wondering: Whose 10 mil was it that we spend each month? And what do we possibly spend it on?

Above 50 years of age!

Now that explains why after I cancelled my subscriptions, I've become a lot younger.
