“Fifteen years ago, as long as you had the best distribution you would win,”

Mr Farquhar said in an interview.

“It didn’t matter whether Oracle was worse than SAP. These days, people are making decisions based on how good the products are.”

The wisdom of Alan Kay, the pioneer of Object Orientation, co-designer of Smalltalk, a Turing Award recipient … …

The Web is a joke. The Web was done by amateurs.

Programming today has become a pop culture.

PowerPoint is just simulated acetate overhead slides, and to me, that is a kind of a moral crime.

American business is completely fucked up because it is all about competition. Our world was built for the good from cooperation. That is what they should be teaching.

Complete vs. finished

April 5th, 2014 by Terrence Miao No comments »

No dictionary has been able to adequately explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. However, in a recent linguistic conference held in London, England, and attended by some of the best linguists in the world:

Samsundar Balgobin, a Guyanese, was the clear winner. His final challenge was this:  Some say there is no difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED. Please explain the difference between COMPLETE and FINISHED in a way that is easy to understand.

Here is his astute answer: “When you marry the right woman, you are COMPLETE. But, when you marry the wrong woman, you are FINISHED. And when the right one catches you with the wrong one, you are COMPLETELY FINISHED!”

His answer was received with a standing ovation lasting more than five minutes and it entitled him to receive an invitation to dine with Queen, who decided to call him after the contest. He won a trip to travel around the world in style and a case of 25-year-old El Dorado rum for his answer.
