Sometimes, there are just some thoughts you have that feels like there’s something to it. I guess that’s just part of being an INTJ – your internal intuition just kind of calls to you sometimes. As I surfed the web today thinking about personal growth, this article on near death experiences really popped out at [...]
It has been quite a long while since I have written on this blog. The absolutely vast amount of new things that have happened since then is mind boggling. That’s not what this is about though. As I sit here in the middle of the night, re-reading parts of Think And Grow Rich, I had [...]
With my recent layoff from BEA Systems, I now have a lot of options to choose from! What should I do? What do I want to do? As I’d sent out a batch of resumes to three recruiters who had called me, I immediately got a first and second round interview with the company Salesforce.com, [...]
Recently, BEA Systems (the company that I work for) was acquired by Oracle. Everyone was all smiles as the stock price went up, giving us a nice gain. Of course, that was until we found out that there was a mass reduction of the number of positions available. Unfortunately (or fortunately as I’m finding out), [...]
Since my girlfriend lives in New York while I live in California, it’s not often that we get to see each other. This weekend though, we finally managed to get together and spend some quality time!

With the current traffic statistics, one would expect at most [...]
As I wrote these last two posts How To Deal With Worrying and Some Light Rail Delays Triggers Thoughts About Perception, it occurs to me just how simple it was to write the entries and get the words flowing. In fact, each of these entries had only taken about 30-40 minutes, and I felt like [...]
In my previous article The Strange Accuracy Of Bus And Train Schedules, I’d mentioned how trains seem to always be on time in my area. However, today, as I sat on the train, a familiar announcement came over the loudspeaker, “Sorry, the train is running ahead of schedule, so we’re going to wait at this [...]
A few days ago, I’d written about WM Media‘s deal in Why You Should Be Careful When Your Business Is Going Well and lamented us for not doing the due diligence that was required on the website. Today, however, we are learning an entirely different lesson from that same experience! The thing to analyze in [...]
Sometime around July last year, not long after WM Media was started, I started performing a little experiment. “How long would it take to get a website up to a pagerank of 5?” I wondered.
