On Emails and Google Inbox

Despite the volume of the emails I get daily, I keep my unread emails below 100. No, I don't read every single one given the number of subscriptions I have. That would be a pain. But I see to it that I at least skimmed through the subjects before deleting them. And they have to … Continue reading On Emails and Google Inbox


On Mute

Marcus is on mute. Well not totally but he’s definitely not going to make any sound without assistance from now on. Marcus is my Macbook Pro. Yes, I named him. I figured, if I’m going to have an intimate relationship with an inanimate object, I better give it a name. No. I’m just making an … Continue reading On Mute

Rosetta spacecraft set for comet crash

http://www.rappler.com/science-nature/earth-space/147772-rosetta-spacecraft-comet-crash?utm_source=twitter&utm_medium=referral When inanimate objects served their purpose and now must be switched off. We're weird. We feel for these creations. But we don't know which is more sad, Rosetta shutting itself and landing uncertain of what will happen to it? Or Philae on standby mode uncertain of what it's waiting for in the cold dark … Continue reading Rosetta spacecraft set for comet crash

In Retrospect: My First Year in a Tech Startup

So yeah, it has been a year since I left the corporate world and became a part of a tech startup. This serves as my review of the year that has just passed.


No, I’m not one of those startup founders trying to convince the world and myself that I made an excellent decision. Maybe not yet. I am one of those consultants working for one.

Last November 25, 2014 I celebrated my first year in the startup I joined after I thought that maybe the corporate world is not for me. Up to now, I can still recall the mixed feelings I had and the reactions I got from people who were around me at that time. Why a startup? Why not some big company out there that offers good pay and a lot of benefits for relatively less responsibilities? Aren’t you being a little too hard on yourself?

Special Dumb Review: Big Hero 6

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=khtFNzVPIh8 I watched the movie with my nephew. He requested for it. Right from the moment I saw its trailer in one of those movie dates I had, I knew it was going to be cool. I'm a creative working in the tech industry; inventions fascinate me. I thought that was it, that it's the … Continue reading Special Dumb Review: Big Hero 6

Have You Tried Turning It Off Then On Again?

I just moved. Perhaps to a lot of people's dismay except mine, I moved out of a convenient place and joined a startup. Thanks to my habit of keeping everybody's contact information, I was able to get back to an opportunity I previously declined by sending in a carefully thought email at 1:10 in the … Continue reading Have You Tried Turning It Off Then On Again?

So I was looking for something I could get happily busy with, the mobile applications development team to which I belong was into all this business model canvas thing, and I made it as a goal to get exposed and be active in IT events. And guess what? Startup … Continue reading The Startup Weekend Experience
