I'm having a lot of thoughts, of life, these days. I need
to write these down because they are interesting, and one day
when I lose my memory, I can read them and remember who I was. I
don't expect anyone to see, to read, to care about what I
write. I enjoy them. I'd like someday others will find these
points/feelings/opinions, agreeable. But either way, I write
what I feel, what I think, what I'd like to save for memory's
sake. I want to remember, even many are better to forget.
Trip to Boston was nice, especially when I saw old friends —
uncle Tam, Eddy, Bob, Doc Shen and his parents. Not that it brought
back many memories, but to see that people who have been in my life,
of whom I wish to have a good life, are doing well ...
Who said it first, that the difference between human and other animals
is that human can make belief, that we can imagine things, a
scenario, a life, that does not exist. Therefore we invented arts,
movies, music, literature ← all the existence that human can be
proud of, and the only ...
What is people? I thought I had it figured out, but now I start to
wonder whether I'm witnessing another make-belief episode in the human
history when an abstract word such as this being used, abused, taken
for granted, without explanation, as if everybody recognizes its
meaning, knowing its ...
It's a common scene comparing ancient time vs. today, and the common
context of such comparison is that people in today's world, enabled by
information revolution and its technologies, is overwhelmed by these
bits in term of sensibility, thus deriving a conclusion that either we
are becoming less ...
I wonder, whether the bias that I feel, is actually self-selected!?
This occurred to me when I was browsing Slashdot at lunch, and started
to realize that as a pattern which applies to everybody, you will only
click into the comment for the titles you find interesting —
this sounds very ...
A country I only know by its name, Venezuela. Yet it's on the NPR news
these days, and the country is going through some terrible times. The
world feels, turbulent, really — US policy is aggressive that
it's on war with China, with Iran, with just about everybody, and ...
This is a common question any team/project will have to address
— how to structure the knowledge we know of a project so that we
are not missing things? Each project/application, of course, is
different. But the overall is actually quite common. Here ...
Once a while I need to make a 2x2 for official document such as
passport. It's annoying if I need to go CVS paying $15 for a digital
while myself owns a whole bunch of lenses and am proud of myself of
taking good photos.. well, I guess this ...
What is wrong with these story tellers!!? I mean, really, what is
wrong with you!? Can you, honestly, give some thoughts of what...
Life like a turtle
Walking back from gym a moment ago, passing the 奈何桥 I was always
joking about with her back then. Nice, cool late Spring day, beautiful
weather, beautiful sunshine, beautiful sky, almost beautiful day. Out
of the glittering sun reflection off the pond, there was this lazy
dark patch floating over ...
This, is an excellent topic, excellent!! I love it.
We need reflection of technology, of the terms tech talks use to
promote themselves and to dwarf others. I have argued before that the
so called 弯道超车 is ridiculous and outright disgusting. Period. This
implies to take a shortcut ...
I have been thinking about the word "globalization" in the last couple
days. I used to use it a lot during my MBA days as if it's a magic
word that fits into any topic, any slides, and made it look instantly
a good one, thus bringing me good ...
I have been listening to this midnight talk show by this woman/girl
for the last few weeks on and off, and found it quite fascinating, not
that it's sentimental and discussing the eternal topic of love that is
guaranteed to acquire attention and discussion and audience. I found ...
