Lombok island is an area famous for its natural beauty also known as the island of 1000 mosques
Every street corner you will find a coffee shop here. Coffee shops are places where all people from all walks of life, including millennial young people, spend their daily time chatting or doing other useful things. Internet connection is also very easy to find especially in a coffee shop / cafe. Seeing this situation, Lombok island has become a city that has extraordinary digital literacy because information that comes from all directions is easily accessed by easy internet availability. But it is unfortunate, there are things that arise from the ease of access, Relax.
The ease of internet access should not be used optimally for millennials. The early hours, the more crowded the parking lot filled with millennial young people. Wasting time becomes a normal thing and over time becomes a culture. The lack of availability of digital literacy that evokes the willingness to create and innovate as is appropriate for millennial youth in other regions (outside the island of Lombok) is one reason.
Just name examples in the capital and other famous cities. Co-working space mushroomed on every street corner and building became a "relaxed" place for millennials. Relax what is meant is to continue to catch up with the times, keep learning, and not complacent. They realized that the disruptive era was real and had wetted all corners of the country. The presence of successful technology businesses such as Go-Jek, Bukalapak, Tokopedia, and Traveloka opened their eyes to the world. 10 Last year no one was aware of the motorcycle taxi business, just selling online could become a millionaire, and even renting out his own room could be an extraordinary income like that done by AirBnB.
Millennials on the island of Lombok see this as all normal and not too confusing.
Enjoying, enjoying, and being addicted to being a consumer has become a culture that is inherent without even wanting to create and even become a producer. When disruption outside has led to technology, business, and even jobs & careers, most millennial millennials are still "doing this".
Because of that situation Egg Geek as a Startup in the field of media & event intends to become a driver of change in order to build a technological ecosystem and startup in Lombok while building a creative ecosystem, pioneering creative hub Lombok island, with the aim of promoting creative industries in which one is startup information media.
Egg Geek will intensify its wings even bigger. We cannot just walk, but have to run and relay to catch up with what happened. We hope that our activities will be able to trigger the emergence of a technology and startup ecosystem that has not been there. Here we show the form of our activities in 2019 by taking lessons from our previous shortcomings.
EG. Disrupt EG.
Disrupt is a public discussion event that aims to raise relevant local issues and find solutions from resource persons with capacity and involve young people to make the island of Lombok better and more brilliant. This activity is held once a month.
EG.Disrupt has been held several times with the theme of the current issue, one of which is "The effect of digitalization in the changing paradigm of business in the field of public transportation services". We raised the issue because of the occurrence of some conventional local transportation parties demonstrating to the local government. During the discussion, we presented representatives of Lombok Gojek, Lombok representative Grab, the Government in this case the Lombok Transportation Agency, and conventional local transportation.
GeekTalk Geek Talk is a local gathering held in a time filled with speakers or speakers who are brilliant, inspiring and talk mind-blowing. The event with the concept of relaxed gathering aims to generate new ideas, inspire and educate the public. This activity is held once a week.

But obstacles still come over. Individuals who are competent and experienced actually do not live in Lombok, our lack of resources to invite them here is a major obstacle not to mention the technical matters of the event as we have described above and many more.
Audio recording podcasts that are later uploaded to several platforms such as anchors that aim to share the viewpoint and editorial opinion of Egg Geek to the audience to inspire and provide new perspectives. The podcast contains topics & issues on Technology, Lifestyle, Startup, and Video Games and other disruptive issues. Weekly podcasts.
The best of our podcasts cannot always depend on the editorial Egg Geek. Every now and then we also have to visit an expert in their field who is able to provide solutions to issues raised. Once again we are constrained by insufficient resources such as transportation and technical parts.
In the future, we plan to do an open mic to spread startup "viruses" by picking up the ball. For this reason, audio equipment is needed because we have used cellphones / laptops as media recording so far.
The production of short documentary films / videos that raise issues of social life in Lombok and which are still taboo to be discussed which aims to educate the public visually and have an idea of what actually happened.
We want to make a short film with several episodes that represent the situation, the issues that occur, and the local culture which of course provides a new perspective for the audience. But unfortunately, we have very little equipment such as cameras, mics, lightning and minimal standard film making tools.
Indigenous and Lombok culture has actually been promoted to National and International, but from a disruptive point of view no one has started it. In fact, short films that are associated with disruptive issues can have extraordinary effects. The change in the mindset of the Millennials is our hope and that of the Lombok people in particular. Maybe with a short film, the intentions and goals are conveyed easily.
Egg Geek Platform
But behind it all, there is an egg geek journalist team that never gets tired of making news releases and personnel in the technical section who edit and upload the news articles without even getting paid. Not to mention when we set aside pocket money to pay for website hosting, internet billing and paying for social media advertisements for our content and event traffic.
