I'll probably use that more than the blog to just share some links/news I stumble upon regularly. Hey, you never know, I actually enjoyed updating my status on Gmail/FB/etc. for a while.

One year since graduation.
And today it's been one year since I joined American Express.
I don't want to sound nostalgic but these 2 years at London Business School and UCLA were clearly good times. And even if I got lucky with a rotation program taking me around the world, working life just can't match student life. :/
I'll be back in London next week and I'm sure I'll find a few MBAs to reenact our student life highlights at a trendy bar or a local pub.
On that note, I think it'd be fair to add soon: One year since I stopped posting on this blog regularly. But I've been a bit more thorough with our blog in Oz and more recently with this very stupid experiment: blogging my Gmail/Skype/Facebook status.

For once, it isn't about a new product but more about old ones. The page being linked to is a memo from Steve Jobs in response to allegations that Apple doesn't do its fair share to be eco-responsible:
Apple has been criticized by some environmental organizations for not being a leader in removing toxic chemicals from its new products, and for not aggressively or properly recycling its old products. Upon investigating Apple’s current practices and progress towards these goals, I was surprised to learn that in many cases Apple is ahead of, or will soon be ahead of, most of its competitors in these areas. Whatever other improvements we need to make, it is certainly clear that we have failed to communicate the things that we are doing well.I think it's a good initiative but if Apple wants to be taken seriously, I doubt a once-a-year update and vague plans (as announced) are going to be good enough. Why not set a CSR blog instead to follow on initiatives and progress? I guess it's the Apple way again... being secretive.

May The 4th Be With You!
I just received this joke by email.
Hilarious it is, and resisting I couldn't.
