Some Recent Ups and Downs (Including Twitter)

Because I am caught in between all the social websites, I am trying to have a life as well. I think the following video does speak some of our geeks’ heart out, well, only occasionally. There are few things I am monitoring lately, starting with Google’s I/O conference with much attention on the upcoming Android…

Guy Kawasaki, who is going to Malaysia to give a talk soon, has a good idea on this, but I am not talking about him. He’s Gary Vaynerchuk, interviewed on CNBC on his ideas how he has realized his dream, and how they helped other people.

Facebook Applications – Are there really fewer?

Lost in Translation

“Beating someone is to care for someone and scolding someone is an expression of love…” – Estee Teo This translation is so direct, which keeps me wondering if the author meant that way when he wrote it. There is indeed a Chinese term called “打是情骂是爱 (da shi qing, ma shi ai)”. But according to my…
