mac osx on intel core2duo laptop

I'm currently making effort to install osx on my laptop (LG LW25 Advanced). I installed it through vmware 5.5. Installing was quite easy comparing with Windows XP. But the problem was drivers. The notebook native keyboard was usb and touchpad was ps/2. It have to be use same interfaces in order to work. As a result, I had to plug another usb keyboard. OSX was really beutiful. Now I know why people are fallen love with apple. If you want to use it, go to forum.insanelymac.com and x86osx.com.


web2.0 submit video link

Kevin Rose is the famous people of this year as far as I think.

He is the founder and chief architect of digg, where he oversees all aspects of the management and development of the digg web site. The basic idea is not that unique though, the interface of the site is easy to grasp. He's 2 years older than me.
digg.com is based on bloggers' participations.



tourist attraction

Well, I've never been abroad so far. And one region that I want to be is Swiss. They're invention exhibition once a year.(web search needed here). Of course I can see the major contents though, seeing is better.
May be learning is experiencing new things like kids doing. So the main purpose of tour is learning. Some part of learning would be get fresh ideas. In this aspect, going to a design gallery is exactly the samething for me. When I see creative works done by designers reminds me to think and act out of box. Such break-through *** can be learned as far as I think. But unfortunately I haven't get much free time to take a trip, I've tried to see fresh galleries. It's not like eat fastfoods. Anyway I hope to be in Swiss someday. Are there a site that shows me greate inspiring videos? Yes. The Ausraila **** site does. Here is the link. Nature is another source of creativity. Why creativity is crucial for me? Now it's changing too fast that only parianoids survive.

Basically I fully agree with "The World is Flat". So if you want to survive, you have to creative and know where my strengths are. Traveling and communicate various people based on multi cultures will broaden(?) my limits so that make you flexible.



What I most hate leisure would be bungee jumping that I never tried before though. At my leisure time, I usually watch movies and animations that I downloaded from internet. And read new articles through google reader. I rarely do physical activities. Some day I should give a shot for in-line skating. May be I do not make social contacts in these days. Or my friends are too busy currently. It's easier to say than to act. Most of us knows what we should do but we do not make something to action. Bungee jumping is one of those things for me. Well, I could be the one who do not like changes. Uncommon things are avoided. I want to be a man with a strength who got no fear to fail. But as I said, it's not that easy to get a character like that. When I first learned to ride a bicycle, I learned for myselef. It was unavoidable not to fall for me.

ruby on rails


Well, ruby is not that popular though, I'm planning to digg it further. There're only one ruby-on-rails hosting site in Korea. So I paid them for my school web project. For now, we didn't make any significant progress. Still working on it. But the codes of ruby is so beautiful that I just can't resist to use and learn it. May be that could be one reason that ruby manias are after it. The address of our site is http://jaigouk.koruby.com/prisonbreak/public . In the future user applications would be based on web. Without learning web technologies like ajax, it would be hard to survive as a programmer. There're already plenty of API mesh-up sites(http://www.programmableweb.com/matrix). Now it's time to ignite your ideas.


About hobbies

I don't usually go to theatre for it's a costly way of killing time comparing with internet downloading. My love of films is in the crime and thriller genre. Favorites movie lists are Matrix, The Seven, The usual suspects, Fight Club, Lock Stock and Two Smoking Barrels, Snatch, Prison Break, and japan animations like Ghost in the shell.

People, including myself, like stories. They love storytellers. In internet era, it isn't easy to find original stories. It's highly possible to confront copies. If you want to grab real source of the article, you would do googling. And then narrow down your search results. This isn't that easy as to say.

In my free time, I surf the web in order to catch up on the recent edge-tech, interesting business stories. It's not about the money but about the stories that everybody would enjoy such as StarWars or HarryPotter. There are many other web-surfers like me who want to grab real original stuffs. To help those people, some guys devleoped filters using web2.0 technologies. This could be one reason why blogging is spread so widely in these days. The Long tail theory is all about these filters. Bright ideas are come from a few people, and you can visit his / her blog.

You can go to my favorite blogs right side bar on this blog. There are venture capitalist blog and the other blogs related with web2.0. I recommand you to visit Life Hacker and TED.com. At Life Hacker, you will find s/w, web sites reviews that make your life more productive. The TED (Technology, Entertainment, Design) conference is an annual event where leading thinkers and doers gather for inspiration. The TEDBlog covers the same ground, on a rather more frequent basis. Here is one of those. Malcolm Gladwell, the author of "The tipping point", on TEDTalks.



Life isn't that long if you think more deeply. And it's not always happy. Once you get your goals in your hand, soon it turns out boring . Nothing goes forever. So what's really important in life? I mean literally real stuffs by your heart. Let's think about this just a few minutes with me.

Though it would be variable depend on your sense of values about life, working is one of them. Because you can plan something interesting to you, and then see it's outcomes. How things would end? Curiosity could be one reason for that. However if you've chosen something boring , there would be no curiosities and pleasures. Have you seen a movie "The Matrix"? You've got to choose only one pill. Red one? Blue one? It's up to you. Take whatever you want. But you may end your life chasing the money. I encourage you to get out of "the matrix" and live your own life. Of course it's not that easy. Reality isn't sweet. Though I say choise is crucial to begin your journey to freedom.

Are you following me? Now it's time to talk about the ways to accomplish our goal. It seems like gather pirate companies who are eager to take risks for treasures.

Best Friends

My best friends are now running a business in NY. They are eager to deliver bright ideas to reality. Somehow they got funded. It's not easy to get in touch with them for now. Some day I'll go to NY to see them. A few years ago, I've tried to launch an idea related in RFID which was closed without any outputs. It's always hard to overcome the barriers in real world. However without any adventures, life is boring enough. My friends and I likes to take risks to enjoy our life. That's me. And that's my real friends having no fear to embrace the hard facts that lies infront of us. In a way, we are pirates who went to unknown sea to discover tresures. I'm currently in South Korea studying computer science for now. It will take about 2 years to finish it. I hope to join my friends soon...


Web programming class - project team logo

I'm attending a web programming class which need a project team. Team name is "Prison Break", I made a web2.0 style logo via http://msig.info/web2.php. This site automaticaly generate Flickr style logos. I thought this solution is just appropriate for us.

I requested a free web hosting at http://www.freeonrails.com/. Still waiting the administrator's answer. I'm plannig to use Ruby on Rails as our web server framework. Here is the message that I posted.


Hello. I'm a student majoring in computer science in Korea.My friends and I are studying Ruby on Rails and ajax. By googling I found freeonrails, and registered without hesitating. For now we want to make a project site. In class, we are practicing javascript. It wan't easy to find a hosting site which give little sapce with Ruby on Rails capability in Korea. I'm 28 years old, and interested in Web2, Long Tail theory. I think there still are posibilities to start a biz through web. Ideas are flowing everywhere, and changes are too fast to catch. Agile development with Ruby on Rails would help at this point. I'm looking forward your permission.Thank you.


Future of Web Apps

Tom Coates gave one of the best conference presentations ever today at The Future of Web Apps in San Francisco. It doesn't look like his slides are online, but you can see his presentation from the last Future of Web Apps conference here.

How can I add value to the Aggregate Web?
A web of data sources, services for exploring and manipulating data,
and ways that users can
connect them together

Native to a Web of Data
1. Look to add value to the Aggregate Web of data
2. Build for normal users, developers and machines
3. Start designing with data, not with pages
4. Identify your first order objects and make them addressable
5. Use readable, reliable and hackable URLs
6. Correlate with external identifier schemes
7. Build list views and batch manipulation interfaces
8. Create parallel data services using standards
9. Make your data as discoverable as possible

Starting your job - making good impression

Good first impression comes from the attitude and your answers. Those are rooted on your thoughts about the way you look at other people. So before you make some actions, consider about yourself. How do you think about other people? With respect of someone else, even though some people look naive to you, you can speak and behave nice. You don't have to rethink about your behaviors are appropriate or not. Without such mind, you may make some mistakes by accident. Having respects for others guides you to open but affirmative view points. Because you accept others' opinions, you will not underestimate any little possibilities. Hence your ideas grow richer. Though a company has its own corporate culture, they need new ideas. Because they're always seeking new business models. With your out-of-box mind, feed them your imaginations. You will be welcomed. Your unique view points about recent social topics will help you to go on conversations with new co-workers. If you have gone to army, such experiences would be one choice among general topics to break the ice. Now you can reinforce your impressions with little more skills such as memorizing your team members' names, and sparkling eye contacts.

Trust and reliability needs some time. Therefore check your mind time to time not to lose it. First good impressions are crucial for your job. But long-living reputations are more critical for your future. When you start to feel that you're losing such minds, go to kindergarten and talk with kids. Soon you'll find how kids are creative and smart. There's no limit. Once you get back to this respect-oriented mind, your behaviors will be appropriate.
