Subject:so long, and thanks for all the fish
Time:08:44 pm
well... not that bad, but I've been finding myself more on facebook rather than LJ. so... if you haven't done so already, add me as a friend on FB instead.

Subject:Hooray for firefox plugins!
Time:01:15 pm
I would highly recommend the NoScripts plugin. It prohibits Javascript, Flash, and other plugins from loading on a per-site basis. Great for reducing memory usage from 200 mb to 50 mb for firefox alone! and the browser is fast again! yay!

Time:04:53 pm
Looks like the term "I googled you" is become the norm, and that people expect others to google them. There's a new site, www.zoominfo.com, which is like google-a-person on steroids! It found one of my friends as a PhD candidate at MIT, on the exec board of MITBDT, and competition placements. The site is like typing in the person's name to google, except that it's optimized to find identity!

On another note, when Northwest airlines needs to decide which planes to delay/cancel, they weigh the frequent flyer miles of all the passengers on the plane, and pick the least favorite plane to delay/cancel. Kinda infuriating, frankly.

Subject:Marketing: Update from last weeks' post
Time:02:50 pm
alright, so last week I promised some results from a preliminary test. I grabbed data from about 6000 users on LJ on what type of music they listened to, and see if friends mimc the behavior of friends. Turns out not enough people use the music feature(especially with the client, or maybe just my friends don't), so nothing conclusive.

on another note, I'm highly addicted to Google trends It plots the number of request for certain key words. Most interesting are words like "youtube" where it's almost a perfect S curve(it's mostly in theory, but rarely seen in nature). But in contrast other technology products like Motorola Q or smartphones do not have this S curve, but follows news articles - as expected.

anyhow, no new direction yet for next week's update. In the meantime, I leave everyone a picture of dancing hamsters:

Subject:Myspace, match.com, jesus, and LJ question!
Time:12:29 pm
okay, well, maybe not jesus, but more like "jesus christ! what the hell are the up to?!" anyways, logged on to myspace, and saw an ad for match.com with video. It ressembled those stripper/camgirls, and I couldn't stop from watching them! of course, the girls weren't naked, just cute girls smiling, one is doing her hair, etc...

looks like match.com is getting desperate.

anyhow, anyone know of a social network website which includes a client let others know what music you are currently listening to? Is there an LJ client which allows you to do that? What do you recommend? Is that how people update their Music field in a post?

Subject:MBA secrets revealed!
Time:04:27 pm
In this episode, we will talk about faking that genuine smile! The key is all in the eyes to get a good Duchenne Smile: http://www.mindpub.com/art458.htm

Better start practicing!

(for those more academic, it's been rigorously tested and used in multiple studies. I think actors are particularly good at this)

In the next episode of "MBA Secrets Revealed", I hope to have preliminary data and results about whether you mimic your friends or not!

Time:05:04 pm
writing code to crunch numbers, you type "maxBeata1" and the computer says "unknown variable name" when you meant "maxBeta1".

dancing has been going alright, kinda slacking, and it shows. Comp last weekend went okay, we lost to some couples who we didn't lose before. bleh.
