There are 20 millions bloggers on the internet.  How do people start?  When is the takeoff time? When will bloggers reach the peak?  What affects the diffusion process?  Might be an interesting research term paper if the data is available to plot into the Bass model.

Elizabeth emailed me today and told me that Kristen and her want to take me out for lunch next week.  I wonder what this is all about…. Is it a bad news or is it just to apologize for the screw up on the comp card?  Are they pulling the trigger for me so I will finally end my employement and go back to be a full-time student?  Since I haven’t been able to pull the trigger myself so far…..  (to be continued)

Jen called this weekend and asked me what are we gonna do for Chinese New Year.  I told her no plan yet.  She said I ought to at least squeeze in a dinner with Funny.  Funny said she is gonna spend the time in bed.  I wish I have the luxury to do so…  I am so back up with the reading.  Wonder if Peter wanna come hang out for a couple of hours before new year eve and play some Majong for the count down. 

I asked Sun if they celebrate Chinese New Year in Korea.  He said yes, they do.  Didn’t know that one before.  He said I have to give him a red envelop since I am older.  I was like we are technically the same age #*&#(%. He said we can celebrate the New Year and dicuss the research papers that we are gonna present as well. Such a marvelous idea, isn’t it? #)^@$^(%#$&*()#$%@$&*(#.

One day in class, this guy was talking about something funny.  He claimed that in 1940’s, “Poo” is a slang meaning “new.”  Imagine people saying what’s “poo” to you when they see you.  So here you go… What’s the poos, guys??
