When reviewing a startup, scalability is one of the most important factors. If it’s not scalable, your valuation will be greatly lower down.
Talking about people, I would like to propose the same question? Are you scalable?
Tips to be a scalable person
1) You are not alone, just persuade others to help you;
2) Focus on one thing, and think big;
3) Taking more resources to support you;
Jiuzhaigou, is said to be a paradise and a fairy tale world. Huanglong (Yellow Dragon) is also famous for its breathtaking scenery. I travelled there last week, and I even could not find any words to describe its beauty, so just share soeme pictures here.
Where I accomodated, it’s a small, quiet and peaceful village.
This is one of the most beautiful lakes (I’d like to call it a ‘pool’, coz’ it’s small.).
Lots of fishes here.
This is Huanglong, amazing water terraces!
Google China becomes my concern in these two month. And I’ve never been so obsessive about google.
Mar 22, 2010, Google official blog updated a new approach to China to stop censoring its search services—Google Search, Google News, and Google Images—on Google.cn. Google.cn is redirected to Google.com.hk.
There are two voices in China now.
1. Support google’s decision.
However, it’s only a small part of people in mainland China. They have their onw ways to visit the websites which are blocked in China. I belive that they are indeed well informed with different opinions in home and abroad. This group of people are more familiar with internet so they are able to learn some technics and find a way out to approach a different world outside.
2. Follow the national media in China.
Google China is a banned topic in China mainland now. No news and discussion are allowed, especially the supportive articles. Google China is described as a evil company in China by the natinal media news reports. I’ve been talking to some friends, they belived that google’s pull-out would not affect their life, google obviously made the worst choice in this matter.
For my company, we have our potential market overseas. Without google and its service we are using, our business will greatly affected. Anyway, I really appreciate the suggestion from google for using VPN and proxies. If your business is in the same circumstance, read it here.
I am a Chinese, I love my country and my people. But sometimes I wish I could live in a place without a wall or restriction. Well, things make me frustrated and disappointed.
“Information overload” is a term popularized by Alvin Toffler that refers to the difficulty a person can have understanding an issue and making decisions that can be caused by the presence of too much information. The term itself is mentioned in a 1964 book by Bertram Gross, The Managing of Organizations. See more about Information overload in wikipedia.
I’ve spent lots of time on the internet without thinking too much and too deep. I find it become a really anxiety. Because I just let all information flow into my mind; however it’s seems a little bit hard to think them clearly. I’d like to take it as a downside.
How to avoid information overload? I figure out some tips here:
1. Filter according to profession & hobbies.
I have to know, my profession and my hobbies may decide what kind of information I would like to flow into my mind. So I set up a filter according to my profession & hobbies.
2. One hour per day for all headlines.
Before I apply my filter, I’d like to read all kinds of information to know what is happening around this world. Since there are too many good information, I cannot take them all. I decide to spend one hour perday for the browsing of the headlines generally, and mark some of the best.
3. One or two hours to think and analyze the most useful information for me.
Of course, the best way is taking some notes here, I think. Learn from the source information and be critical, what is right, what is wrong. After reorganizing my ideas, I’ll write a outline here.
