Commit

Deuteronomy 6

you must love the Lord your God with all your heart, all your soul, and all your strength. 6 And you must commit yourselves wholeheartedly to these commands that I am giving you today. 7 Repeat them again and again to your children. Talk about them when you are at home and when you are on the road, when you are going to bed and when you are getting up. 8 Tie them to your hands and wear them on your forehead as reminders. 9Write them on the doorposts of your house and on your gates.

In 2007, Fogarty left EA to found a company that could tap the expertise and insights collectively held by rank-and-file employees. Before long he had a software application that lets businesses set up a "prediction market." It asks employees to bet, in play money, on what they think will happen. "When will this product really be ready to ship?" they might be asked, or "How many units will we sell?" The aggregation of responses can produce remarkably accurate answers and improve the way companies operate. His first customer was Electronic Arts.

milestone

I140批下来了,两个星期,非常顺利,感谢主,感谢老婆,感谢kwan,感谢团契弟兄姐妹的祷告,还要感谢老爸,姑妈和其他做过贡献的人

kwan说,这对你来说是个milestone,回家和老婆好好庆祝一下

三天前做了个梦,梦见kwan过来找我,说我的case approve了

我知道神提前通知我了,就如很多年前神托梦通知我的I20到了一样

昨天下午,我去上厕所,结果就出现了梦里的一幕,一模一样

回首过去的两年,大部分的闲暇时间都用来准备相关的东西,真是消耗了好多的心血

从最开始的弄自己paper,到后来review别人的paper,弄citation,弄推荐信,到最后整理出五六厘米厚的材料

每一步都要消耗大量的时间和精力

不过感谢主,这一切的努力都没有白费

为了给材料的每一页标上序号,我还用iText,ruby,pdftools写了些程序,回头写出来

如果没有老婆,我可能就弄EB2了,那样不知道要等多少年。

老婆从头到尾,到处找资料,现在估计比律师还精通了。单从DIY这一项,就省了好几千美金。

要是我自己,早就被各种各样的条目烦死了。我平生最恨的就是办手续,比如申请出国。

另外没有kwan的支持,根本也不用谈。kwan还帮忙找了个IEEE fellow给弄推荐信,还找了两个加拿大的教授,真是给力。

这两年,老爸来了两次,姑妈来了一个多月。他们在的日子,经常帮忙照看毛豆,这样我和老婆就能抽空弄弄材料。否则要托更久。

中国人说谋事在人,成事在天。圣经说若不是耶和华建造房屋,建造的人就枉然劳力;若不是耶和华看守城池,看守的人就枉然警醒。若没有神的保守和应许,一切都是徒劳。感谢主。

无论如何,我终于可以甩开这些乱七八糟的牵绊,开始干自己喜欢的事情了。这一低头,就是七年。

 

毛豆语录

上礼拜六我加班,老婆在家带毛豆。一边打电话一边要跟毛豆说话,不小心把毛豆叫成了老公。然后毛豆立刻说

“我不是老公,我是毛毛“

等我回到家,毛豆扑过来说

“我不是老公,我是毛毛”
