The holiday weekend was not as peaceful as I hoped. So again, please extend your hand to those in need because of the South Asia Tsunami catastrophe. The tragedy also reminds us that we shall make full use of our every day, since life is very fragile as we all know it.


That reminder is particular important these days as in a week or so, we will all start a new Chinese year. According to some fortune-telling masters, the year of Rooster is a year of:

… Family and family interests are the number one priority of this year. This will also be a great year for creative ambitions and projects, as long as they are also have a strong, practical base. This year will bring big changes, new inventions and brand-new directions. Partnerships and joint ventures bring success …

Not sure how many of the above “fortune-telling” will come true, but you know, you can certainly find one that suit your taste & needs in the Internet. On the other hand, there is one very good Internet website about how Internet evolved in the past 10 years, and how it will change our world in the next 10 years.



From the prediction above, you probably know that the producer of the Flash movie believe that after the browser, search engine and eCommerce – Weblog is the next big big thing. So how big is it nowadays, actually? You can check it out at:


Or surf to the fifth annual weblog award website and you can tell:


And no, we will not left behind, as some of new projects / enhancements will be based on Blog technologies. And every night back home, I am cooking my own blog …


If you have nothing to do during the New Year holiday, try spending some time with this 2001 movie “Life as a house” (starred by Kevin Kline, Hayden Christensen) – it is a movie that will touch your heart with a lot of great moments, and a few melodramatic ones as well. Be prepared with some tissues with you ….

Hmmm … one day we can all produce our own movie – “Life as a Website” …


If you’re not failing every now and again, it’s a sign you’re not doing anything very innovative.” – Woody Allen

In other words, don’t let failure scared you, try exploring new things all the time – it will pay off one day.
