  1. Congratz!
    I congratulate RUJAK for being the change.
    Looking forward for progress.
    Cheers,
    -K-

  2. Thx Koko. Our apology that rujak has not appeared in its maximum form yet. In its final form, it will be much more complex in terms of content and inter-relationship between categories, but at the same time easy to access. Friends are working hard to make that appear by the end of this week. Please use Rujak. Please share your thoughts, experiences, ideas and practices (do you still bike to work?), answer to questions, etc. Let make Jakarta a better place!!

  3. Selamat om marco, semoga ini langkah awal untuk melangkah selanjutnya, untuk tidak masuk kelubang yg sama, kami anak muda siap membantu lahir dan bathin untuk memajukan Arsitektur indonesia, karena sy yakin Bangsa ini akan besar. tidak ada kata gagal dan terlambat selama kita masih hidup.

  4. Rikma, Maria, Putu, terima kasih. jangan lupa mengirim tulisan kepada kami untuk dimuat ke Ruak ya! Mungkin berita dari lingkungan/komunitas masing0masing? Ide, pengamatan? Benar, tak ada kata terlambat.

  5. congrats!!!
    saya deg degan sebelum membuka, karena mengharapkan sebuah situs media yang “dekat” dengan apa yang saya jumpai di kota tercinta ini, ternyata harapan saya terpenuhi. selamat sekali lagi…pak Marco !

  6. An excellent initiative, Marco.

    You have my wholehearted support and can expect regular links, especially if you set up a mailing list.

  7. More public and open space. More public and open space. More public and open space. And of course public safety…

    Enough with hanging out in the Mall.

  8. Kalapa, jayakarta, batavia, betawi adalah tanah yang subur dng puluhan sungai mengalir di tubuhnya. Namun akibat “monster Pembangunan” menjadi belantara be ton “megah namun tak membumi”, belantara kekumuhan, kerasnya hati yg kadang tak beradab. Let’ support RUJAK toward Jakarta to better place for sustainable life. Long Live Pak Marco
