Before I left Indonesia to pursue my tertiary education in the United Kingdom back in 2014, I recall there was little buzz around ICT and the infrastructure supporting it was notably poor, startups and mobile apps weren't really a thing either and there wasn't any ride-hailing or e-commerce solutions available (commercially at least). During my time abroad, I relish at the seamless integration of technology into my daily life. The likes of Uber, Ocado, Deliveroo, and Amazon have drastically changed my lifestyle. Everything was so convenient, I would never be able to enjoy this in Indonesia, certainly, so I thought.
