我們在思考,然後呢? 2007-06-24 明報 P02,P03, 我們這一代, 健吾


an inspirited article. good job.

well, read between the line, the title is reflecting something. "we only think, without action." we have alot opinions, ideas. so what?

the problem arise from the article is complicated. i guess, even the writer can't not clearly write it down. but good try.

i think, the problem is. when a culture, the honor is lost. people will lack of self-confession, self-inspection. people only think of themselves, what kind of benefit can bring to themselves. people become selfish and only see other false.

i will think about this issue. and re-read the article later.

in American, as i see, they are selfish, but also considerate. how? well, in their point of view, selfish is not a bad thing. this is nature. the first consideration should be one's self, right? so, they will not try to cover their first motivation when move. however, hong kong people, always emphasize on consideration. but in my view, i think they only want OTHERs consider themselves. is some kind of selfish covered by "Consideration". well, no matter you got it or not, when i back to Hong Kong, i will tell you.

think about it : when people going to help you, you don't need to think whether they have other purpose, they already think about themselves before helping you! i guess, Selfish is some kind of easy misunderstanding word.

i think, it is more a cultural problem than a social issue. and it seems to beyond my knowledge and observation.

American are simple. they also prefer short term happy. they prefer to live simpler. i see, in some sense, HK people and them are the same. however, the way to move is different. i would like to say, HK people is not independent, not even close. American, they will make their own way, neglecting others's eyes. they like to try, no, i will say, they are not afraid to try, not afraid to be fail. even old men in here, they like to take a risk.

more over, they focus on their own history, they know where they come from, what they have done. and they value the ancient wisdom and knowledge. today, i walked in the business district. i saw inside a bank, there is a free public historical museum. amazing. and this museum is not "HEA". very serious. in there, i can feel the connection between the bank and the people, the land.

what i want to say is. the link to the past, is a way to make people proud of themselves. to gain honor. by educated ancient or past wisdom, we will have some "common sense of the common sense"( a common sense of what we need to know)

thus, the problem may be originated to the recent history of modern china. in the school, we know how great is the china, 1000 years ago. how about now? how many people in Hong kong, know about Hong Kong History in recent 50 years? no, not even HK people, mainland people don't know their recent history too. i mean, they only know little.

ok, the recent history is empty, or almost empty. how about ancient part? we learn Confucian school, and than, many teachers will tell you, this is outdated. Fuck up. who say human mind has been change for only 2000 years? only in few hundred generations? if our mind did not different from the ancient one, why Confucius can not be applied? and the most important thing confucius told us is the attitude of life. nevertheless, in school, we only learn knowledge, not attitude. knowledge is like gases, and attitude like the car itself. ( i am sorry, i can't not give a proof of this) so think about it. and i almost spend out my point too wide and lost contest.

so, all in all. our historical sense is almost empty, we lacked something to enrich our culture. we learn form outside without a real action. our financal market become the only way to our attitude. (i am not saying it is not good of our financal market, but i think, there is a better way to let the market enrich ourself, it need creation, ok, thing back to creation. and creation will be back to knowledge and attitude. a terrible but easy loop to solve indivially.)

The plot:
I am dining with my dearest u-mates from 7pm-12am, but in the meanwhile, I need to have a tele-conference from 9-10pm with one of my client from US for discussing technical issues on a new product.

The process:
Really enjoy the dinner but...

The climax:
I got fucked up by the CTO, because of being the smallest in the meeting... But I know one fact, I will not get sucked unless I am willing to.

I need to go to work tmr!!!


The going gets tough, the tough gets going!

Take care and all the best. :))
Really thx for your encouragement!

And I wish I could go just as the saying!
If you think you can, you can. ;)

Idea a day:
98. Develop a total solution of recuiting to SMEs.
For hugh companies, they have many resources to HR, in order to ensure hiring the best and the most suitable.

For example, they could have email / CV scanning software, to screen out all the irrelavance and unqualified automatically, after email screening, online testing of personality and logical decision could be another step of candidate choosing.

The result of all the record and testing could be stored efficiently, in case they could come in handy someday. For example, your company may in deadly short of man-power, and dont want to waste time on cumbersome multi-step processes, you could check record for suitable candidate to choose for.

But what for SMEs, with only limited HR resources, for instance, the HR manager is actually the boss?

Any ads in careertimes could attract hundred of emails and CVs, if there could be any total solution, for which all the screening and recording citeria could be talior-made by yourself, it must be very useful.

The total solution, other than the scanning and screening, it could be act as a kind of recuit planning.

All the canadidate email & CV are stored in that company's server, at one point could reduce workload on SMEs' servers / email accounts, on the other side, could help busy boss to plan for date and time for interviews, with a few clicks, boss could send template email for interview invitations.

During the interviews, busy boss could access the profile of candidates neatly, without any haze. The aptitute result of that candidate could be shown for reference from the testing statistics, to have a further judgement if the candidate could match with the culture of your company.

Of course the platform could be itself a ads platform for recuiting, or in another way, the solution could be a added value to ads platforms, like careertimes or Jijik.

Nearly all the recuitment solutions avaliable in the market is head-hunt-like or consultant-like, for which all the recuitment processes just like outsourced.

In the total solution, the whole control is in the boss. Through the web-interfaces, boss could set all the citeria for screenig CVs, the kind of tests and questions could also be tailor-made, but there could also be field-related templates to choose from. Unlike consulant-like firms, as less man-power is involved, the cost could be lowered, but at the same time, the hiring philosophy would not be distorted or affected by the culture of consulant-like firms.


On solution / platform for SME HR:
How about feedback on interview / previous employer?
Track record and reference is the most difficult to verify and in fact most useful indicator of potential performance of each job seeker.
If there is a way for registered personels to feedback on the SME HR system on the performance of the job seekers' record, then this info should worth buying.
Question is: how to evaluate the job seeker? Then how to keep the evaluations valid?
I was thinking something like '正面誠信記錄' that was shared among registered employers.
Yes, it could be a effective reference checking and it should be one of the killer app of the total solution.

Idea a day:
97. Another application of bubble index-like index to the stock market - relative strength.
The principle of bubble index is to count the number of articles containing a certain kind of wording. Actually you could compare the number of articles having contrasting words to show the relative strength on both sides.

In practice, you could count articles having wording like "buying", "買入", "追價", etc. On the other side you could search for wording like "selling", "沽", in addition, you could also search for "hold", "楂" etc.

When you compare the number, you will know which side is stronger and reflecting the buying /selling /holding signal from the crowds.

For 2 Jun 07, the relative strength of buy : sell : hold is 100 : 86 : 224.

(This index is not so representive as there could be a wide range of wording to represent actions of buy /sell /hold in the stock market, and I could not exhaust all the possibility, in order to have a total account.)
