what can i say.....?

Ø Regular naps prevent old age... especially if you take them while driving.

Ø Having one child makes you a parent; having two you are a referee.

Ø Marriage is a relationship in which one person is always right and the other is the husband!

Ø I believe we should all pay our tax with a smile. I tried - but they wanted cash

Ø A child's greatest period of growth is the month after you've purchased new school uniforms.

Ø Don't feel bad. A lot of people have no talent

Ø Don't marry the person you want to live with, marry the one you cannot live without,,, but whatever you do, you'll regret it later.

Ø You can't buy love . . . but you pay heavily for it

Ø Bad officials are elected by good citizens who do not vote.

Ø Laziness is nothing more than the habit of resting before you get tired

Ø Marriage is give and take. You'd better give it to her or she'll take it anyway.

Ø My wife and I always compromise. I admit I'm wrong and she agrees with me.

Ø Those who can't laugh at themselves leave the job to others.

Ø Ladies first. Pretty ladies sooner.

Ø A successful marriage requires falling in love many times, always with the same person.

Ø You're getting old when you enjoy remembering things more than doing them.

Ø It doesn't matter how often a married man changes his job, he still ends up with the same boss.

Ø Real friends are the ones who survive transitions between address books.

Ø Saving is the best thing. Especially when your parents have done it for you.

Ø Wise men talk because they have something to say; fools talk because they have to say something

Ø They call our language the mother tongue because the father seldom gets to speak!

End of Web 2.0

it is interesting to note that doomsdayers and soothesayers invariably try and predict the fall of a particular service, or phenomenon. They would have recieved a much needed moral boost with them predicting the dot com bust.
I guess the bust was a case of economics and chaos, and that when the two come together, they are like oil and water. You cannot hope to implement a "business plan" on a system that is built from chaos, unless in the chaotic system, there is a form of semblance to sanity. Amazon.com a surviver, but why? because they streamlined the web within the portal. all links were inside the portal to various other parts, selling, cross selling and upselling. However, any other portal needed 1. information from somwhere else, revenues from somewhere else, and found it difficult to keep people on the site because links were leading to : somewhere else.
Wiki's and blogs however are a system that require no investment, no advertising, and there is no "economic" model based on this.I would relate this to iPods' disruptive innovation.
More importantly, wiki's and blogs do not try and tame chaos, they are chaos as well. a butterfly flapping its wing sets off a ripple effect. bloggers start writing, and posting. millions of posts in all directions.
It cannot die.

the news from china

I came across the google site, that had the headline "Al-qaida in Iraq names new leader", so i click on it, and i am taken to "china daily.com" now, this is true globalizaiton where china is taking over where news first breaks from china as opposed to CNN or BBC!
