Everybody is a Somebody


Finally back in Singapore after two weeks in US. Arrived back early in the morning at 5:30am and have to get back to office at 9:30am :P And gosh, I am not looking forward clearing up the 3000+ emails in my inbox :-(

Anyway, it has been a great trip. On certain days, I feel my brain exploded from all the information – sometimes I lost track who I met.

Like this guy who excitedly told me how he used to work in Mindef when I mentioned I am from Singapore . Didn’t registered in my brain until few days later – Duh, Chris Anderson!

Or this guy called Bob who spend one hour talking to me about some crazy idea to reinvent the Internet Protocol (IP) – I figure he is either lunatic or pure genius. Later, when my brain managed to make a connection again, duh, Bob Frankston of Visicalc fame.

Everybody is a Somebody (at least in the geek world) at ETech.

I mean when is the last time you sit beside the guy in charge of Thunderbird by picking a random seat at lunch break?

ps: Incidently, my previous post regarding 仙剑奇侠传 attracted quite few emails asking me where they can buy the VCD in Singapore. (My wife calls it the pretty-girl-effect :-) I really haven’t seen it in Singapore.

However, I might be wrong about not ever coming to Singapore. There is one (minor) character 刘晋元 which is acted by a Channel U artist 王禄江. Watch out for it :-)
