A government afraid of its citizens is a Democracy. Citizens afraid of its government is tyranny!— Thomas Jefferson
To those who are ahead of me but consider me good enough at what I do and continue to give chances. That they believe in my gift. That they trust me enough to handle tasks they’d rather not assign to anyone else. My mentors.
To my girlfriend who has always supported me in my endeavors and is the first to cheer when opportunities come my way. With kind and honest words she has helped me keep a smile through dark and tough times. That she sometimes dreams bigger than I dream for myself. My constant fill of sunshine. My number one fan.
To my mum who scolds but always understands. That she wants nothing but the best for us. My source of hope. My guiding light.
To Him who makes all things possible. Some people acknowledge the universe, fate or themselves. I acknowledge Him. That He knows what I need and always finds a way to bless me even when I’ve chosen to do things my way. That He’s forgiving and just. My Savior. My God.
What happened today reminded me to always be grateful.
So thank you.
Where else would you get a chance to video chat with the likes of Lil Jon, Steve Aoki, will.i.am, Tyra Banks and The Dalai Lama? Not to mention notable people in Tech and Social Media. There has even been a concert held via a Hangout.
Of course, you could still always Hangout with your friends. I just think that the accessibility of these people—important or just plain famous—through Google+ is worth noting.
Update: Oddly enough, I’m having trouble uploading this to Facebook. I tried uploading on different browsers (Firefox, Chrome, Opera and IE9), changed the file name, converted to PNG & GIF, changed pixel dimensions, rearranged the layout and even print-screened—-all to no avail. It kept saying there’s an error with the image file. Right. Or they could have way more advanced algorithms than we’re aware of, capable of tracking and blocking posts that ridicule Zucky.
And in other news, the court is about to issue a Warrant of Arrest against Gloria Arroyo. Goodbye Singapore dreams!
When I logged in to Disapora* today.
Sad to lose people working on such underrated projects that has shaped services we enjoy now (read: Google+). Not to mention he was only 22.
If you know what I mean.
