This presentation is devoted for those who believe that personal journey is one of the treasures that make the destination worthwhile. It is a personal case study in creating a website as a core-document of a PhD research, and as a bridge in connecting multi interests. “Where are you from?” is a rather easy question for most people to respond. But it is not for me, especially at international conferences. The difficulties have already started when filling up the participation form. There is always further clarification needed. I cannot just write or say that I’m from Indonesia as I don’t live there anymore. And a simple word Paris poses more questions when people realize that I fly from Sweden instead of France. A long geographical way from the research base triggered the thought of creating a website. But then confusion arose. The background disorder made it hard for me to regulate how the website should look. I was determined to write the main pages in French as I was registered under Hypermedia Dept. Université de Paris-8. I also planned to make English translation for not only that it is considered an official language for global communication but also because the co-advisor, an Information Ethnographer from Indiana University (USA), didn’t speak French. And the desire to share knowledge with friends back home insisted me to also have Indonesian pages.
