Sadochok

Sadohok – “Садочок” is a great product from Ukraine’s Sandora. But most importantly, my kids love it. I mean there are all kinds of natural juice products, and this one seems to be the king of it. You buy them kids something else (even more expensive), no they want Sadochok. Maybe ‘coz it has fruit pieces in it?

There is usually some competition between local and imported products. It’s very good for us, consumers, because eventually we get the best quality with affordable price.

Kicking the habit

August 22, 2008

The late-sleeping finally got to me, so I used a the most powerful secret (not secret anymore) tool that I have. It’s called “The mysterious habit kicking technique of East Green Mountains”. Here’s the gist of it: You force yourself to do something (sleep at 12 at night) for some time until it becomes a habit. You keep doing this *whatever thing* until it becomes your nature.

And when it becomes your nature you become a different woman (in my case – a different man). In the end you go to East Green Mountains for extensive and extreme kung-fu training, where you become a legend for kicking some local villains. They make a contest to marry you (unless you’re already married) and you marry the most beautiful/handsome girl/boy in the country. It might be confusing to read, but actually very practical and real (except for the girl/boy part).

As a renewed person you descend from the mountains and open a kung-fu center. Everyone rushes to learn from you, but you pick only the most talented guys and have fun forever teasing them and making jokes of other masters…


Is Fire Eagle the clowd?

Seth Godin’s clowd just came closer to reality with Yahoo’s brand new Fire Eagle. It tracks user locations and undoubtedly will use this data for targeted advertising soon. Yahoo decided to let developers to run wild with whatever application, which will attract more users and eventually become very beneficial for Yahoo. Because “open” means “we will try it”.

Similar ideas fly in the air… It’s like inventors working for the first radio, but in 21st century.

When everyone’s a performer

Clown

There wa a teacher who told me everyone needs to perform nowadays, even teachers. Told me about a collegue who used to do circus tricks during lessons and earned a fortune for that.

When everyone’s an actor, a presenter, a simplifier, an entertainer. When toys are in mobile phones and shows are on every TV. When jokes and fun seems to be everywhere. Then sometimes there’s too much entertainment, and people get tired of it.

The nature of (created) universe requires truth. Not fun or acting. Whether it’s somber or serious or downright grave. It sure helps if you’re not boring (at a presentation, demonstration, lecture, negotiations). But it’s only truth and real performance that counts, not tricks. In business and technology it’s important to sell truth, otherwise customers who came to purchase solutions to their real problems will end up with a collection of jokes, and will not come back ever again.

Open source software

Open source software

Best software is usually open-source. It’s a rule, it became a rule with user-generated content of Web 2.0. In this month alone I needed an H323 gatekeeper, an H323 gateway + h323-SIP proxy, and an e-shop software. All for testing purposes. So, I found GnuGk, Yate, and osCommerce

Proprietary solutions are always too expensive and too limited. It’s remarkable how free software grows and prospers, while closed software is smothered by it’s own locks. I’m not saying all software should be free. No. But some are just meant to be, for example the e-shop script. Run away from areas where eventually something big, nice and absolutely FREE is doomed to be coded. Code something else for money and feel free to contribute to free scripts. Because most probably small and limited e-shop scripts can’t bring good profits anymore.

Willpower

Willpower

Why most self-development books are useless? They describe methods, materialistic and universal truths. It’s very boring to read and leads to disasters if implemented in real life. However, they do have good points when it comes to willpower training. For example: Start painting the house as soon as you decide it needs a fresh white paint, etcetera.

In my understanding though, it’s never about the methods. Once you believe in truths (in my case it’s existence of The Creator), then this truth starts driving you. The belief migh fade, and consequently the willpower too. Yet as long as it holds, there are always moments of truth, that sometimes long for months, when willpower rules the ego and the body and strives for a single goal. Because the belief drives it.

If the need for habits need to mentioned, then “Yes”, I agree that forcing yourself do write a post (do some exercise, jog, talk politely) for months can eventually become a habit, become your very own nature, and the willpower can deal with something next. There’s no such thing as “vacation” for a real Turkmen.


A writer’s pattern – John Grisham novels

August 7, 2008

A young lawyer. Difficult case. In a serious relationship/married. These are patterns too. But what exactly makes John Grisham so good? Patterns of MONEY.

It’s how everybody keeps thinking and scheming about money all the time. How the life in States turns around money and greed. These are the main themes and patterns. Grisham wins because lawer=money=reader’s interest.

I’ve read about 8 of his books in 2 months. So, the visible patterns are obvious; for example when a lawyer is scared, he (always he) gets a diarrhea, or when they eat a greasy catfish with someone. Those are just decorations to the main idea – people scheme MONEY all the time. Which I don’t like, and which is so true.

Coca-Cola Light and Pepsi New

August 4, 2008
Leave a Comment

Since there are people, whom I personally know, with sugar allergy problem, the Coca-Cola Light is a great substitute for soda. But I really miss vanilla coke and mad types of Pepsi around here. It is assumed by manufactureres that I’m willing to drink Soviet-type Buratino and Tarhun forever. I’m new, I want something cooler. Either more traditional, leaning to natural drinks, with more natural and healthy appeal, or something plain and straightforward cool like Vanilla Coke.

Current (and old) marketing style: unloading products on the market and waiting for the people to buy it 😀
Modern marketing: asking customers what they want.

I want nothing from the past.
