Can you imagine your facebook account shut down after years of uploading all your precious memories? Honestly, I also feel like Facebook is responsible for me being able to get in touch with so many past classmates and finding friends I haven’t talked to in years. How about all those chats via the walls? It’s like all those funny conversations basically disappeared?
Well, it may be a possibility. Facebook has grown too big for it’s britches. In this Businessweek article, Facebook is reported desperately seeking cash to finance it’s operations. At one time, the wunderkind Mark Zuckerberg was compared to William Gates, but now he may just become another dot bomb CEO if his management skills don’t start to step up. Perhaps it’s not just him that’s the question though at the company. I wouldn’t honestly want to be the Chief Operations Officer. The COO may be blamed for the lack of foresight in the traffic. I remember my days in Doubleclick where that job was literally impossible. It’s so hard to predict and the hardware costs are enormous. The bandwidth issues, the storage issues, the database issues… I would be stressed out. Continue reading
Oh my gosh this made me cry laughing the first time I saw it…

Actually, Will Ferrell in his typical great impersonation of some random character reminds us how Football coaches appear to everyone. He preceded Ronnie Lott in the Lott Trophy presentation I think in 2006? He also mentions there’s another “tough kid”, Rob Cho’s Korean brother “Rick Cho….” Ha!
I think it’s somehwhere around 1:35 he starts joking about the Cho’s. He of course stick’s with the “cho” theme and starts blurtin out stuff about Na-cho’s which in High School I was made fun of a bit by my debating team members when one of the partners I had at the time was Susie Cho. We were called Nacho by this annoying classmate Marty McGuirk.

I think I’ve heard of the “South by Southwest” (aka SXSW) event before, but was just reminded of it after noticing it on a friend’s facebook page. It’s going on right now until the 18th…with Music, Film and Interactive emphasises…

I was about to complement my mom recently in how perseverant she was with our family over the years. It’s one of the reasons why our family is successful. Without her perseverance, I definitely wouldn’t have many of the opportunities I have now along with my Dad’s hard work — have never seen someone work harder in my life. These two are a testament at what two people who were never a match from the beginning and even up until now can do in an English speaking country without strong English skills.
Please excuse the mess here including all the excess categories for links, topics, etc.
I just added a few other blogs I had failed to keep up to date – unlike The Real South Korea. As a result, it does a bit of “adding” verses optimizing which is what computers have failed to learn how to do thus far. We can thank technology for the fact it can never do what we do well as humans. 😉
Anyway, if you see anything a little too messy or what not, feel free to comment. Thanks for visiting!
While I haven’t bought it yet, I’m definitely a click away from so…
Just saw the HP Mini 1001 yesterday when our “computer guy” brought one in. The notebook is literally almost as light as a thick ringed notebook and easily tuck’able under your arm. You can throw it in your backpack with ease and probably do a bit of work on the subway to work or pop it out almost anywhere.
