design


即便成員每個都超厲害,團隊過大還是會拖慢速度
沒什麼比排定日期更能釐清你的焦點
從頭開始設計產品非常困難
今天你所做的一些「小」決定會對日後發展帶來深遠影響,然而有些決定其實並不重要。

presentation


one suggestion about layout of presentation - http://zachholman.com/posts/slide-design-for-developers/

Some nice tips of having presentation

Do not spend half of your talk "motivating" your topic.
Have a rhythm. Let's be honest
Tell a story.
Make sure you solve an actual problem.
Not everything you say has to be brand new.
Never let anyone touch your slides after you have last seen them.

Don't just start slamming slides together
Don't be a compulsive bullet-pointer
Don't do live demosDon't do live demos
Don't darken the room
Don't use age-old clipart
Don't drone

An average is better than an arbitrary point
A range is better than an average
A histogram is better than a range
A time series is better than a histogram

Warrant


Explain - http://hk.knowledge.yahoo.com/question/?qid=7006092100815

作為空軍必須造好五點:

一、一旦形勢不利便「Run for your life」,唔好等。

二、唔少所謂技術分析大師,只以過去股市表現去預測未來股市,但過去只可作為參考,未來唔係過去嘅延續。

三、買賣Put利潤可能係本金100%或虧損全部本金。同去澳門買大細差唔多;呢個行為係賭唔係投資。

四、買入股票最大風險係該股可能一文不值,拋空可以係無止境地虧蝕。

五、買Put贏咗錢後,最好立即計數,然後用較少量金錢買另一隻遠期Put。如股價繼續下跌,則可繼續賺錢,萬一股價止跌回升,亦可袋袋平安(只係賺少咗)。呢種方法叫做Rolling a position。

Consideration of developing software product


A very nice article about consideration of developing software product, here is a quote:

Most projects carried out by internal IT organizations suffer from budget overruns that occur for two reasons: excessive customization and changing requirements. In an effort to keep external customers—especially big, powerful ones—happy, many IT groups end up overcustomizing solutions and adding needless costs and complexity. One large consumer credit company almost doubled the time and money originally allocated to a new platform for institutional customers by trying to satisfy all of their operational and technology needs.

How Berkshire Hathaway operate


Adopt from yahoo
【明報專訊】過去數十年,有股神之稱的巴菲特一直依賴他的膽量和直覺去管理上市公司巴郡(Berkshire Hathaway)。看?他的工作,你會發現到一些不會在其他金融大亨身上看到的東西。他每日大部分時間都會呆在那沒有電腦的辦公室內。他會迅速做出投資決定,但會避開會議和顧問,從不制訂程序,甚至不會要求經理們經常提交報告。他偶爾會拿起電話聽筒,指示他的經紀落注,交易總額至少1億美元。

廣 告

75歲高齡 未擬找繼承人

最近一個星期三,他全日收到了13個電話,其中1個是撥錯號碼的。所有電話,都沒有急促和緊張的對話。當天,他可以騰出時間,為情歌《Love Me Tender》譜上新詞,用來在好友蓋茨(微軟主席)的生日會上送給他。他又會親身示範少年派報時學到的拋報紙絕技。

年屆75歲的巴菲特,年紀漸大,面對的棘手問題就愈多。包括巴郡實在太倚賴巴菲特的頭腦,那麼他的承繼人應要怎樣繼續經營這間公司﹖巴菲特稱,他未準備退位,所以他目前仍然無意尋找繼承人。

雖然巴菲特的王國多年來不斷向外擴張,但巴菲特的日常工作程序,在這些年來並沒有大改變。他表示,每日花最多時間去思考和閱讀、處理少量的電話,又會與巴郡各分公司的主管討論事項。他很少主持會議,因為他稱這沒有多大用處。

巴郡總部只有17員工

巴郡的規模雖然龐大,不過它沒有公關部、人事部、投資者關係部,甚至法律管理部。它不會為投資者或分析員安排季度業績會議,而且不會為未來的盈利給予預測。它的總部,只有17位員工。

某一個星期三,早上9點,巴菲特把座駕泊在停車場之後,精神奕奕地步進巴郡總部。最近,喜歡吃漢堡飽和喝汽水的他,接受了醫生意見,進行每周3日的健康療程。

步進公司後,他與助手閒聊幾句,就走入面積不太大的辦公室,鎖上門。他的辦公室沒有電腦,沒有股票報價機。他把電視扭到報導最新金融消息的CNBC 台,但就把聲量調到最小。他的桌子上沒有計數機,因為他喜歡心算。他稱,大部分投資決定,都沒有必要做出準確的計算。他書桌後一個小櫃上,放?兩台黑色的電話,可直接聯絡他的經紀。

投資決定毋須精準計算

當天,他就為巴郡的投資組合購入了約1.4億美元(約10.9億港元)的股票,這個規模,已經可以媲美大部分互惠基金的總值。他的桌面不會堆滿股票研究報告。巴菲特說﹕「我不會聽分析員意見,亦不會求神問卜。」。

進行交易時,巴菲特會給予經紀很大的自由度。2003年,巴菲特決定買入中石油(0857)股份。當時他的「御用經紀」、在花旗投資銀行部工作的 JohnFreund經常在香港開市、即美國時間晚上9時致電巴菲特。這段時間,正是巴菲特在家中穿?運動衣,玩網上橋牌的時候。Freund形容,他時常打斷巴菲特的休息時間,詢問他的意見。

經紀代買中石油 不用覆盤

有一晚,有2億股中石油在市場上求售。Freund致電巴菲特,要求他作決定。巴菲特只回應了一句﹕「去買吧﹗」。當晚稍後時間,一位香港的經紀通知Freund,已成功以巴菲特的名義購入這些股份。Freund聽後轉了一個身,便施施然進入夢鄉,毋須再驚動巴菲特,因為Freund知道巴菲特的需要,與他其他客戶完全不同。
