[Orkut & Networking]

I was into the social networking service called Orkut which is developed by one of the engineer of Google. I think my networking is expanding since I started this, from 10 years old friend to the friends who share same interests with me.

I think this system has many possibilities to connect people around the world, not only expanding friends and business relationships but also to establish trust. I feel like my network is expanding, and I'm sure it will give some ideas to produce positive things for the project I'm working on.

Also, Orkut reminded me one of my favorite thinker and respectful Professor, Derrick De Kerckhove, who is the director of McLuhan program. Orkut, especially the combination with blog, reminds me his book called "Connected Intelligence". I met with him several times when I was in Kyoto, and thought that he is one of the most connected person I have ever met in my life. I think he should be in Orkut. ;-)

Well, I'm back to blog now. I would say that the connection with trusted people I made through Orkut is definitely motivating me in many sense. Thank you for everyone who sent and accept the friend request. I'm sure I will talk with you more in the near future. :-)

AIR : Talkie Walkie

I just got the CD yesterday, and am listening the album almost all the time. This is really a good one. MY favorites are "Cherry Blossom Girl", "Universal Traveler", "Alpha Beta Gaga", and the "Alone in Kyoto" which reminds me of the spring atomosphere of Kyoto. Highly recommended.

G5 Rocks

I had a chance to play wiith Power Mac G5 today.
It's amazing, ultra fast, and very comfy with Panther. I think Apple is doing great work.
