I have been twittering actively for a week now. Since I don’t want my loyal blog readers to miss my twitter posts, below is a summary of what you might have missed. 🙂 — Follow me at http://twitter.com/GeekMBA360

  • Drupal, BuddyPress, Elgg, and Moddle — I love open source software!
  • Costco is permanently closing Costco Home stores on 7/3. No layoffs.
  • Case interview question: what’s your favorite pro sports team? How much revenue do you think they make in a year?
  • An excellent interview of legendary investor Charlie Munger by a Stanford law prof — see PDF at http://alturl.com/8nuo
  • Story of a shrewd billionaire banker who from 2004 to 2007 virtually shut down his bank, not making or buying loans: http://alturl.com/8ynn
  • Productivity tip: Send fax via Skype – http://www.pamfax.biz/en/. Wondering why eBay didn’t build this into Skype as a value-add feature.
  • Nothing so conclusively proves a man’s ability to lead others as what he does from day to day to lead himself — Thomas J. Watson
  • Someone bids $13K for a 2-3 month internship at Huffington Post. Is this an indication of how bad internship recruiting is this year?
  • Job search tip #2: use Google Alert to track start-ups that just get funding. Contact these companies for jobs.
  • A goal without deadline is hallucination — to set career goals for yourself, make sure you’ve clear and specific goals with dates.
  • Job search tip #1: cannot find a permanent product manager job? Try to provide PM consulting to multiple start-ups who need your expertise.
  • More than half of my colleagues have high cholesterol level. High tech workers — please get out of your cubicle and move!
