I believe it’s about time to change myself a little bit – it’s all about job/career, etc, but it may affect life as well.

I don’t think this Microsoft deal has any impact on my feeling, and I don’t think current project involved even a little. The Microsoft deal is great, I’m not saying it will bring any solid benefit to my company, but at least it leaves some room for my company to take a pause, re-think the whole strategy, and move on. My current project is kind of interesting – cloud computing is something hot, and data intensive cloud is not being well defined in current cloud/grid world.

I feel like it’s about time to change just because … it seems less people care about me now :D. I like talking to friends, but slowly friends stopped pinging me for whatever reason, it could be because my life is so boring and nothing could interest them. I’m not getting new friends either, which is because I don’t have relationship with any groups around.

So, it’s about time to change, at least I can make people start talking to/about me again. 😀

It’s a big day to some of people in the company – it was said some of us will get notice of “you are going to M$)”.

I haven’t got anything and seems I won’t get anything like that, same to other people in my team. The most interesting thing today is, the team sitting beside our cube gathered together (20 or so people) and list all the names on a whiteboard into two columns – one is green M$, and the other is purple. People laughing, discussing, taking photographs, and so on, it seems like a big party.

Well, enjoy, in the coming months groups like this will be split into two, and people who used to work together will then work for different companies.

I think I had this problem for quite sometime – I’m really slow in warming up.

This happened whenever I moved to a new group or a brand new project, that previous experience doesn’t help me. It seems I’m good at solving problems based on experience, so once experience becomes useless, I’m lost.

I’ve been assigned to current project for months, and I started my “real” work about a month ago, but obviously only till now I can have some real ideas about what the system look like, and what we should do to make it works. I don’t think people like me in previous meetings as most time I was just sitting there listening, not much to present to the team (to help the project). Now the project is about to finish the design phrase, and seems I finally wake up :D. In the past two or three meetings I think I contribute a lot to the project.

It could be another reason though – I may not be that interested with design stuffs, but once it becomes implementation I got my sense and become willing to do something.
