硅谷的这些事儿(1)

今天硅谷阴雨绵绵。。。就像大宋的江南三月。周六。

对于硅谷的工程师来说,特别是华人工程师,就是一个睡懒觉,然后去永和或者大华超市买个菜,然后整1,2根油条,喝点豆浆的快乐时光。。。生活本来就是这么简单。

在网上乱逛,看看Techcrunch,有篇文章很有趣, “Get Rich or Die Trying”。有写quote非常不错。摘抄如下:
“Nothing in this world can take the place of persistence. Talent will not; nothing is more common than unsuccessful people with talent. Genius will not; unrewarded genius is almost a proverb. Education will not; the world is full of educated derelicts. Persistence and determination alone are omnipotent.”
President Calvin Coolidge

Determination is critical to success as overnight successes actually take years to build; indeed, “overnight successes” are a myth.

大概的意思就是:坚持,专注是发财的不二法宝。想整点easy money是不太可能的。。。Determination这个词在洋文里很subtle。你要认准方向,然后坚持。

文章还列举了N个例子。例如,上个星期被Zynga 2亿美金卖断的OMGPOP,一年之前几乎破产关门。。。

有的同学会说了,那不能死在沙滩上呀。。。

这东西其实就是任何事情,你都可以找到一个相反的谚语,然后为自己的行动做解释。就看你的屁股的位置了。

所以,一切都是性格决定命运。成也好,败也罢。愿玩服输就好了。。。

其实过过peaceful的生活就很好。

这篇文章写的很好。同学们都应该读一哈。。。总比没事看porn强。。。

这几天没事琢磨Apple的股票。600左右。一年之后,如果是1000美金,那时的人会觉得600的价位是多么的便宜呀。。。如果谁买500股,每股gain 500美金,就是25万银子。。。
