One of them is Joko Widodo (49) a.k.a Jokowi, the Mayor of the city of Solo, Central Java for two office terms (2005-2010 and 2010-2015).
Please find below an article about Jokowi written by a Jakarta based Public Relation Consultant Unspun, whose company organized Pesta Blogger 2010, on his blog http://theunspunblog.com.
November 4th, 2010 § 1 CommentWhat Unspun loves about living in Indonesia is that every once in a while, amid all the muck, detritus of corruption, indecision and self interest there will emerge something wonderful, like a water lily flower blooming resplendent even though it emerged from the mud.
Last night was such an occasion. It was Pecha Kucha Night, the seventh that Maverick has organized and it had a star studded list of speakers that included film director and Indonesia’s most influential Twitterer Joko Anwar, iconoclast Pragiwaksono, “Bapak Blogger” Enda Nasution was Joko Widodo, more commonly known as Joko Wi, the legendary mayor of Solo.
Joko Wi has become a legend in Indonesia because he has shown what one man with integrity and political will can do for a city and, by extension, the country. Last night he shared with the audience of about 250 people who gathered at Es Teler 77 Resto on Aditywarman what he’s been able to achieve in Solo.
