Interesting, that so many theories and explanation for almost everything. Not only that theory being written in the book, but also read, commented, critized. In not only an Amazon.com, Quora.com, Yahoo Answer, but in a lot of knowledge exchange concept. Incredible, I just could not imagine, how far are we (Indonesian) able to fill that gap in term of knowledge based society. “…Relax, guys; there is always more to learn…”
