http://www.macromedia.com[..]n/entitlement/index.cfm?e=labs_lightroom

A free (until beta period finish) competitor of Aperture. The auto tuning work excellent. However, there is no plugin yet and require highend machine to work smooth. It take 400MB RAM for just a few RAW photo and it work like a dog on my poor mac mini. This is the first time of this 5 years I wish to have a better machine

*最棒的需求,往往是在我們身邊發現的
*TA 就在身邊的好處,是可以快速 Iterate,更快找到PMF
*需要教育市場的新產品,要善用YouTube 的力量
*最初的合作通路,要選針對早期熱衷者的那種
*打開通路的關鍵是贏得店主人的推薦
*與其佔很多店的一小部分營收,不如佔很少店的一大部分營收
*就算產品再好,進入市場後,也要一段時間的醞釀
*向下相容很重要 (美國小孩間本就有編織友誼手鍊互送的習俗)
*正向力量很重要 (與其打電動,父母更希望孩子動手)
*一旦打開,小孩市場的傳染力非常強有了初期成功後,還要不斷演進,才能維持顧客的興奮與市場的領先

星軌拍攝技巧 數問 -

1).數碼機因hot pixel而唔適合曝得耐...最好分開影影夠幾個鐘...咁每張間隔之間都要俾CMOS斗下氣?
有師兄 教過 分十幾張 每張 10-20min 再合成 好過 一野 暴 幾粒鐘, (菲林 令計)

2).數碼機有D人話用ISO 100、有人話用ISO 400-800好...如果用合成方法...其實係咪都係就番光害而定...定係關雜訊事?
睇天氣 , 小弟 用 o個次 用 iso 100

5).北極星仰角澳門係23度,咁香港一樣??
4季 都唔同 位置, 用星座 搵 會準確 d, e+ 係 冬季, 北極星 位置 係 獵戶座 (lei 個最易 認, 唔會 搵唔倒 ... ) 頭頂 (腰帶 致 頭頂 距離 再過 5倍左右)

附圖 係 舊年 去雲南 香格里拉 時影, 本泥想 長暴, 不過 o個晚 太涷 個人 頂唔順 要收皮 反酒店

=====
這張是11月15日凌晨拍攝的M42獵戶座星雲, 大埔的光害較嚴重, 所以要加上IDAS V4濾鏡作長時間曝光, 分三段不同時間曝光及作Layer Masking 處理, 把動態範圍拉闊. 在月光的影下算是滿意, 希望之後可以分數晚作10小時以上的曝光並加長每一張frame 的曝光時間 (現在是5分鐘一張), 使到暗位的表現進一步改善.

project management


Linus share about project management, most importance is people, and also discuss about tools, how to collabrate people and how to delegate - http://h30565.www3.hp.com[..]Software-Development-Management/ba-p/440

Only the programmer who is going to write the code can schedule it. Any system where management writes a schedule and hands it off to programmers is doomed to fail. Only the programmer who is going to do the work can figure out what steps they will need to take to implement that feature. - http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000245.html

Never, ever let managers tell programmers to reduce an estimate. Many rookie software managers think that they can "motivate" their programmers to work faster by giving them nice, "tight" (unrealistically short) schedules. I think this kind of motivation is brain-dead. - http://www.joelonsoftware.com/articles/fog0000000245.html

Micromanagement or Macromanagement? http://boncey.org/2006_10_29_how_to_mentor_programmers

But, unfortunately, as a general rule, Project Managers have no training. Even if they do have training in the form of an MBA, MBA education is impractical and useless; the academic community has completely failed us in this respect. Furthermore, Project Managers are more often based on personal friendships and company politics; they are rarely based on management skill.
And, finally, most managers do not acknowledge that management is a skill that they must study and learn so they don't study or learn it.

Importance of finding out your Signature Strengths - http://traderfeed.blogspot.com.au[..]ature-strengths-and-trading-success.html

索托說:“你應該從改變行為做起,接下來,如果你能長期保持這種新行為,這種行為就會被鎖定下來。”他說,如果能獲得心理治療師的指導,你可以在幾個月之內看到持續的變化。你也可以學著自己管理你的性格特征,只是要花費比較長的時間。
那么,你應該從哪做起呢?加州德爾馬(Del Mar)的心理學家理查德‧萊瓦克(Richard Levak)表示:“首先,我們必須認識到性格中有哪些因素對我們構成了影響。如果我愛發牢騷,好爭辯,還有點多疑,我總是因為跟同事吵架,老是責怪別人而被解雇,那我就必須意識到得改變一下。”
萊瓦克說,這和糾正暴飲暴食這種壞習慣相似。要想減肥,你就得認識到自己什么時候以及為什么會暴飲暴食。萊瓦克博士表示:“如果你有戒心過重和好斗的傾向,你就要對自己說:‘好的,當我老板過來跟我說話,而我立馬感覺老板在挑我的刺,想要自我防衛的話,那我就是反應過激了。’讓自己冷靜下來,不要爭吵。”
不要把期望值定得太高。耐心一些。索托博士說,要把一種有意為之的行為變成習慣,需要花費很長時間。不要太擔心其他人的反應,因為你的變化通常是他們樂于見到的。

This, I find, is the single greatest impediment to pursuit of excellence: Most of us are simply too busy doing our jobs well to become truly world class at what we do.

In the great majority of instances, the journal entries are never revisited! - http://www.forbes.com[..]ndar-into-a-peak-performance-tool/print/

A good explanation of what is courage, and the result of didn't have courage. It also mention a bit of how to bulit courage within the team, but not much about it - http://www.xprogramming.com/xpmag/NotXP.htm

A potential issue of focus too much on people, rely on few heros - http://jchyip.blogspot.com[..]12/people-over-process-misses-point.html

Our agile process requires people to spend the effort to listen and talk to each other, working closely. You have to be a people person to like it. It doesn't suit sociopaths. Accidently hiring a sociopath is going to make XP impossible. Trust me, I know. To me this is XP's fundamental weakness. http://jchyip.blogspot.com[..]12/extreme-programmings-fundamental.html

他在公司的名言是「When you give, you get」。他在上海成立科研中心,大方讓上汽參與,他認為各懷鬼貽的氣氛不可能做出成績。合資公司理論上是獨立個體,合資公司員工應把合資公司利益放到最前,而不是自己原屬公司的利益,但很少人做得到。慢慢下來,上汽也逐漸對墨菲產生尊重。

在美國和上海工作過的GM員工,指上海GM的工作氣氛跟美國截然不同,甚至認為上海GM形成一套自己的文化,這套文化建基於信任。墨菲跟員工打成一片,工餘在家中安排活動,中美關係罕有地融洽。 http://www.thehousenews.com/finance/由傲慢製造的優秀企業/



10. 永遠記得,做出決定前要先綜觀全局。

9. 否定別人跟切換開關一樣容易。但你最好拼死抵抗這種衝動,因為你也曾經做過蠢事。你做過爛決定,然後學習、成長,別人也一樣。

8. 掃地、擦桌、關燈。哪裡有漏洞要補就去補——即便那很瑣碎、沒人會注意。你必須做這些事去造福你的產品、你的公司,以及所有你們團隊共同打造的,令眾人驚艷、神奇的事物。

7. 你無法做所有的事。閉上眼睛,向後仰倒,學會信任。

6. 顯然有某種更為有效的方法能處理你正在做的事。是什麼呢?在每天回家的路上反覆思考吧。

5. 找出總是在依賴你的人,想想要怎麼做才能協助他們,讓他們自力更生。或許你覺得當個壟斷市場的鮭魚供應商很重要,但如果小鎮的所有人都學會捕魚,便能將你解放出來去做別的事。像是學習種小麥,或是如何馴服那些可愛的小狼。

4. 別說任何對當下討論沒有貢獻的話。你的聲音並非悠揚到絕對必須被聽見。

3. 做得出最好的決定比不上處在得以確保做出更多最佳決定的流程。

2. 就像你經常發表意見那樣,多說感謝和鼓勵的話語。

1. 最重要的是:永遠要掃除障礙物。那怕只是玩玩手指、看看窗外的雲,也別讓你那愚蠢、幼稚的自我阻礙團隊前進的腳步。
