Do you remember LiveJournal?
LiveJournal is a hybrid blogging and social networking service started by Brad Fitzpatrick in 1999. Users could create a blog that usually served as a public diary, and then they could add people they know who also set up LiveJournal blogs as "friends." Friends' blog entries are aggregated on a single page, allowing users to see at a glance what their buddies are up to, like a proto-News Feed.
The service was many people's first experience with a Web 2.0 application, and, in particular, the first for many teens. LiveJournal quickly acquired a reputation as a clearinghouse for suburban, adolescent angst - collections of lengthy, startlingly sincere lamentations of broken hearts, occasionally interspersed with awful, copied-and-pasted Dashboard Confessional lyrics and "Which 'Hey Arnold!' Character Are You?" quizzes. (I always shot for Gerald, but I'd always wind up being Eugene - or, on a good day, Mr. Hyunh. This was a source of mild consternation.)
LiveJournal was, in many ways, a forerunner of much of the purportedly revolutionary social media environment we're in right now. After all, it was started before the word "blog" was even coined and before the phrase "Web 2.0" gained any sort of currency, and it predates both MySpace and Facebook by about half a decade.
It was also among the first social media to receive the same flak that Facebook and Twitter catch on a regular basis now. You know the criticism: It's narcissistic. It's self-important. Nobody really cares how hilarious your cat looks when he's asleep.
But I've never thought that the self-absorption was what we were supposed to take away from social media. And I'll go as far as to say, without any irony, that LiveJournal and its successors have made me sort of…...

...Today is a rainy winter day. I slept really little last night so forgive me for this ugly picture. On a rainy winter day, I'm enjoying some me-time eating hot ramyeon in my room. :D love it. Its been almost 2 weeks since we've arrived in Korea. 2 weeks here seems really long for me too. In the short 2 weeks, Shir and I have been to so many places, met so many people. But then you realise that Seoul isn't really that different from Singapore. Well there are things I really enjoy though, like taking a stroll in the park, walking around a lot on the streets with my friends, climbing up or down a mountain, just enjoying one another's company is enough. Come to think of that, I've never really done that in Singapore? Maybe we don't have enough parks. Haha, but I guess that's what I really enjoy about Korea as of now, the nature - waters, trees, rocks. I'm still feeling sore about the fact that I have not seen snow. :( after all the excitement, I never got to see snow. =.= As the weather turns cold again this coming week, I really hope there would be some snow. SOME will do. I just need to see it. TT I think I'm the silliest thing ever. Yesterday I went out without my wallet. And I travelled 1h 30min without realising I didn't have my wallet with me! I was so far from home and it was impossible to return home to get it anymore. So silly. The funnier thing was the same thing happened to my new buddy the day before. Aye, I think we are destined. love, phie...

...AC1- HUM16 Reporters: Platino, Sermae Tan, Cesalyn M. “BREAD OF SALT” By: NVM Gonzales Usually I was in bed by ten and up by five and thus was ready for one more day of my day of my fourteenth year. Unless Grandmother had forgotten, the fifteen centavos for the baker down Progreso Street – and how I enjoyed jingling those coin in my pocket! – would be in the empty fruit jar in the cupboard. I would remember then that rolls were that Grandmother wanted because recently she had lost three molars. Foy young people like my cousins and myself, she had always said that the kind called pan de sal ought to be quite all right. The bread of salt! How did it get that name? From where did its flavor come, through what secret action of flour and yeast? At the risk of being jostled from the counter by early buyers, I would push my way into the shop so that I might watch the men who, stripped to the waist, worked their long flat wooden spades in and out of the glowing maw of the oven. Why did the bread come nut-brown and the size of my little fist? And why did it have a pair of lips convulsed into a painful frown? In the half light of the street, and hurrying, the paper bag pressed to my chest, I felt curiosity a little gratified by the oven-fresh warmth of the bread I was proudly bringing home for breakfast. Well I knew how Grandmother would not mind if I nibbled away at one piece; perhaps, I might even eat two, to be charged later against my share at the table. But that would be betraying...

...Technology has played an important role in achieving economic growth by garnering economic means for consumers to travel. The development and contribution of air travel as a means of transporting tourists to different locations is an important contribution of technology to the tourism and travel industry. The significant development of low cost carriers is another means of successful technological applications to the tourism and travel industry (Stipanuk 1993). The tourism industry is often defined as the sectored system of innovation and production. This sectored system in tourism is extremely complex; given the fact that the tourism products and actors changes due to changes in the external forces. The evolvement and progress of information technology has therefore had a tremendous impact in tourism (Aldebert, Dang & Longhi 2011). The travel and tourism industry suffered a setback post 9/11 terrorist attack. Airlines were forced to change their marketing strategies and give more emphasis to ecommerce. Most airlines started including special applications like content management, personalization software and business intelligence paraphernalia. Internet technology gained importance as it became the major force to work safely and effectively. This technology also helped airlines to reduce costs and get closer to the customers. Let us find out some of the major features which gained momentum due to the information technology revolution (Kelemen 2003). The travel and...

I ate 5 times every single day and I am not willing to take exercise. When I went to school, my weight was up to 180 lb. That is very terrible for sure. When I grew up, I realized I do not even have a friend and nobody wants to make friend with me. I was inconsolable. I decided to change my life and to have a new one, to be the best one. First of all, I have to lose weight. In time of losing my weight, I spend about one hour running every morning and ate diet food, such as, vegetables, fruit, and low calorie meal. Reality is not as easy as I thought, insist on two months later, my plan has failed and my weight went back to the past. I was upset and I thought I will never ever achieve my goal. I started to eat and drink too much. I become introverted, and Id not like to talk to people. My parents saw my change and my father told me if you want your dream come true, you need to be positive, persevering, confident and use the scientific method to gradually achieve your goal. In this world, only you can beat yourself. It was then my father took me to the gym. In practice, I do not...
