Youtube is not the first

It's not around anymore, but was the first video sharing site that allowed users to upload files in various video file formats and share videos. It was started back in 1997 by Chase Norlin, who now heads the very cool video/audio search company Pixsy.

Chase takes us down memory lane, during the last Internet boom when he launched this company whose time was not quite right. In this interview, Chase talks about the challenges in bandwidth. He marvels how the YouTube guys picked up where he couldn't at the time.

And, yes the progress since 1997 is amazing. This past 12 months has been unbelievable. To bring you to speed on video sharing sites and various monetization schmemes, you should read this terrific round-up by Nick Gonzalez at TechCrunch.

Next generation of social community

Bluepulse, a free mobile social messenger, has released its new mobile social messaging platform.

The Bluepulse executives introduced new feature of mobile Friending, a combination of messaging capabilities that enable users to build out their circle of friends through their own trusted network on their mobile devices.

In addition, the platform includes a host of features that allow users to communicate with their network of friends and colleagues. The company added that users can make introduction, send emails, text messages and they can also share profiles, pictures and videos using the new mobile social messaging platform.

Founder and CEO of Bluepulse, Ben Keighran, said the company is introducing the next layer of social networking functionality for the mobile phones with this new release.

“Making our platform available through the mobile browser means more people can use Bluepulse. We have built an accessible next-generation messaging application, which allows our users to easily stay connected with their friends, families and co-workers,” Keighran said.

“Whether it's making plans on the fly or sharing their latest photos while on vacation, Bluepulse lets them do it all from a single interface on the device they always have with them,” Keighran said.

San Mateo, California based Bluepulse is a privately held mobile social media company. Last year, the company had introduced a game changing networking application, which works on most internet enabled phones around the world.

The company informed that since the company’s beta release in December 2006, Bluepulse has been downloaded close to three million across 160 countries. Keighran added that Bluepulse is well-positioned to be the major player in the mobile social networking space.

Something memorial about PRSS

Today I opened my friendster account and saw that I got a new message. This is pretty unusual as seldom got people msg me through friendster. I went to my inbox and realised that the msg is sent by Ling Yan. Strange, i seldom hang around with Ling Yan. The message shows "for ex-pasirians info"

and I opened it....

Mr Ng Siok Yen, our PRSS principal, has passed away! Although I understand 生老病死 is a natural life cycle, I am kind of sad for not able to attend his wake. Haiz...Anyway, he and PRSS have indeed left me with a lot of memories. Some bad, some good but it is part and parcel of life.

I remembered when i first stepped into the class and Ms Toh (at that time, she is already married) was my form teacher of class 1/2. A very nice class! I got to know many of my best friends in the class. I categorized my best friends into two groups: "Bad Boys" and "Hot Babes". Bad Boys - Michael, Tse Hong, Wan Kong, Adrian, Weirong, Jeffrey, Tommy and Yi Kai(erm..sorry Yi Kai, i know you are not that bad though). Hot babes - Sandra, Meiqi, Sandi and Yumi.

The Bad Boys are, afterall, not that bad in fact most of them are working now. I think only Tommy, Yi Kai and me are still studying. Haha!

Yumi - I used to call her cai ling but now, everybody calls her yumi. This babe, i still keep in contact with her but she changes a lot. Now, she is very very hot!

Mei qi - Recently, she graduated from NTU. I even attender her convocation and we took a picture together with Yahui. But she hasn't sent me the photo. :(

Sandi - I really miss this girl a lot! A very good class vice chair and a very good sister that look after me. But, I have lose contact after she went back to her country - Myanmar. If anyone got her contact, pls let me know.

Bon Voyage Mr Ng! 你永远活在我们的心中!

Oh my god! How come Optimus Prime become like that?

Oh man! Guys, You should come and have a look of this! This is really an Art work! Crazy ang mo but I appreciate their creativity! I like the costume of "optimus prime" especially when he transforms to a truck! So far, I think that's the best among all of them. But, how come there is no bumble bee?! What a pity!

About the movie is a boy's movie! Pretty babes, big guns and robots! Not too sure about how the ladies feel about the show? but one thing for sure, the ladies like our cute yellow bumble bee.

The story line of movie sticks closely with the G1 genre of the "Transformer" original. The movie focuses on the story of high school student Sam Witwicky (Shia LaBeouf) so it is pretty and his desire to own a car. Sam’s dad has promised he’ll help buy him his first car if he can raise some cash on his own and if he delivers a report card studded with As. Sam's so anxious to own a car that he even resorts to using eBay to try to sell some of his great-great-grandfather’s possessions which the famous explorer used while making an important discovery in the Artic.

Finally finish my examination, back to full time blogging haha! Erm...I feel that i didn't do well for this semester maybe because I got too many external projects and projects to an extent that I have lose my focus to my studies. However, I think it shouldn't be that bad after all because the subjects I take for this semester is quite Math-based but one thing for sure, I can't Aces for econometrics and game theory. Anyway, what's more important here is exam is OVER! hehe! It is time to loosen up a bit!

Recently, I go and dig into the drawers for some old CDs. I found a "Andy Lau 99' concert" VCD. I can't remember why I bought Andy Lau VCD during Pre-U/Pre-NS day. I just remember that is one cantonese track in the CD that I used to like a lot and i mean really A LOT. The ironic part is that I don't know cantonese haha! I remember I actually practised how to sing the song. I read the lyric again and do some self-reflection about my teenage days. Although the tune of the song is quite cheerful, the message it is conveying is quite sad. The lyrics goes by saying about a relationship between an ex-couple. The guy didn't cherish the relationship and in the end, the girl left him. The guy didn't know the importance of her till the day he found out that she had alreay married to someone else.

Erm...I realise that there is some similarities between the story and my teenage days. (Maybe that explains why I like the song then haha!) When I was in relationship, I took thing for granted and don't really care much about the other party's feeling till the day I initiated a break-up. I still remember I went out and "chong" as if there was nothing happen. About 5-6 months later, I got to know from our close friends that she was attached. I remember that moment my heart unknowingly become very "painful" but I didn't show it up. That failed relationship has become a thorn in my heart and the thorn actually accompanied me during my NS.

However as time goes, I started to ask myself "Why must I alway so unhappy?" By then, I can't find an answer so I kept myself busy doing a lot of things trying to explore as many things as possible. Luckily, I did find a few answers for this question. Although I am not sure whether it is a definate answer, I feel that the best conclusion I drawn for the question is that I have 'self-induced' the unhappiness in my life. Do you think that a person who kept on thinking of his or her unhappy memories is a happy person? I think the answer is pretty obvious. Life is just a process! What's happened had already happened! Why bother?! Just look toward your future! Now, I have changed the attitude toward life and work hard for my future. Although I have learned during the forecasting module that no one can predict what's going to happen in the future, I believe that I can shape he future that I want it to be if i am willing to sacrifice.

I have decided to share my teenage experience because I feel that it is part and parcel of life. For those who shared similar experience as mine, I hope you have already recovered. For those who have not, try to find some goals in life and you will realise that there are so many things that you have not accomplised in life. As time goes, you learn how to let go. Nevertheless, I have included a podcast of this song from baidu. I hope that you guys will like it!Below is the lyrics you can refer to (to the benefits for those who don't understand cantonese)

Spiderman 3 Trailer!

Yo! Finally, I have been waiting for this show ever since Spiderman 1 & 2. So what's so happening in this final show down.

In Spider-Man™ 3, Peter Parker has finally managed to strike a balance between his devotion to M.J. and his duties as a superhero. But there is a storm brewing on the horizon. Forced to choose between the seductive power of the new black suit and the compassionate hero he used to be, Peter must overcome his personal demons as two of the most-feared villains yet, Sandman and Venom, gather unparalleled power and a thirst for retribution to threaten Peter and everyone he loves.

Time Series Report

Oh man! Uncle Choy has finished marking our Times Series Report. That's fast! He commented that he can see all of us put in effort in this report and he is generally happy with the results. He also mention that all of us have good marks and the difference between one another are not really big. Erm...he is just trying to say that there is no outstanding team in this Time Series Report. Anyway although this is the second time that i didn't manage to succeed in my project in the semester, my favourite phase again "i didn't win but neither have i lose". I am not finding excuses for myself. To be able to do econometric or time series, i believe you need to have enuf experience in the field to be able to do a good job.

I think the failure of the report is not the method. I think Pin Ru, Francis and Xun Ning have handled it well. It is just the way we write it. I think we have forgotten Uncle Choy is different from Uncle Randolph. Uncle Choy is an extremely technical and particular person. He will pin point all the possible technical errors in your report even though your accuracy is good. Well Uncle Randolph is a very practical person. As long there is no fundamental mistake in method and accuracy is good for forecasting. Randolph's attibute is that "as long it works, who cares?!"

End of Year 3 Semester 2

Finally, no more business plan presentation and forecasting (haha...dream on! only for this semester!) Now, back to the all-time-favourite spooky building: Innovation Centre. I believe you guys are aware that I usually study over night for exam in the ghosty building of NTU. Luckily, haven't seen any casper at the time being but to be very frank, this place is quite scary especially you are alone in the office in the night time(especially when you are walking along the corridor to the toilet and you hear nothing but only your foot steps!)

Nevertheless, it is a quiet place to study. I still remember last semester that I have to spend the whole night at innovation centre looking at computer to do the Applied Econometric. Really amazed by my determination! Perhaps the availability of online entertainment website: YOUTUBE! A big Thank you to Chad Hurley and Steve Chen for the founding of Wanna know more about youtube and its future? Below is the interview of the founders with Charlie Rose(Charlie Rose is an American television show that interviews well-known thinkers, writers, politicians, athletes, entertainers, business leaders, scientists, and other newsmakers).

Also, youtube has provided me a mean to search for very old Cantonese Pop MTV. I hope that my generation group of friends still remember the movie "Young & Dangerous"?! I alway fond of its movie themes. I like Jordan Chan and Ekin Cheng in this movie especially part 3. I still remember the sadest scene of the show is when hao nam see xiao jie ba being shot to death in front of his own eyes! Below is the classic song for this scene of Young & Dangerous III. Enjoy and standby your tissue paper!
