흐어…이거 또한 정말 맛졌다..




2017 Great American Eclipse


Witnessed the 2017 Great American Eclipse in the morning at campus 🙂 – Reflection via sun watching shade glass & reflections on camera lens.

사진으로는 티가 별로 나지 않았지만, 아침에 몇분간 살짝 어둡고 써늘까지 했었다능…나름 씨애틀은 93% 였다는데….초등학교시절 일식본다고 다같이 창가에 매달려있었던 기억이 난다..ㅎㅎㅎ


Layoff & Online Media Advertising

Today was a bit of tough day at work – slightly different to initial rumors or communications, I learnt some of my immediate colleagues were being asked to look for new chapter in the work. Well, some things can happen and it also can happen to any one at any time, so this should be one of the moment for all to “continue the show”

However, one moment that really bothered me the most was when I was scrolling down my facebook app and noticing some obviously targeted advertisings. Don’t get me wrong, as I worked for online media business for few years, I totally get the fact that this is a perfect moment to pitch the service and especially via facebook – where people tend to be truthful on their work profile – with “target” company’s employees. But, I think, at least, the expressions or wordings on ads might have crossed the line a bit to targeted audience.

I strongly believe this is not a good way to promote things – especially taking advantage of other’s challenges – Would anyone love these ads if that person realizes these ads are targeting that person’s pains with direct words?  This was a World Taekwondo Federation moment…

Personally, I think they should have toned down on their expressions or pretended they have not targeted specific companies at least on the words in ad.

Small attention to details can make big difference…

요 몇일 인력 조정과 관련하여 회사 주위가 떠들썩했고 예상과는 약간 다르게 우리 조직도 영향을 받았다. 뭐 이제 미국 직장 생활 10년차 – 이런일에 쉽게 놀라지도 않을 정도로 심장에는 굳은살이 하나둘씩 생기고 있다.

허나 눈쌀 찌뿌러트리게 만든건 누가 봐도 내가 이 회사 직원이라고 facebook에 써놨기 때문에 그걸 바탕으로 targeting된 광고를 뿌리는 회사들이 었다는 점…. Targeting이 나쁘다는게 아니다. 단, 적어도 이런 “안좋은 소식”과 관련해서 target할때는 최소한 target해서 뿌린다는 인상을 주지는 말아야 하지 않을까? 내가 직접 당사자였다면 지금 느끼는 불쾌함보다는 수천배 더 불쾌했을 것 같다. “내가 짤리니 좋니?”

고객 설문조사할 때 잘 작성된 설문지들은 다 타겟을 정하고 설문을 하는걸 알지만 구지 모르는 척 티를 내고 설문을 한다.. 그런 소소한 섬세함이 아쉬우면서 무서운 세상이다…





E3 2017


One more year of E3 watching remotely from online. Making it worse – company presentation was on Sunday!!!!!!!

흥… 바쁘기만 했던 올해의 E3도 저물어 간다… 난 당체 언제쯤 직접 가서볼수 있을까? (회사돈으로 LA한번 가보기 참 어렵네…ㅎㅎㅎ 나 정말 LA좋아한단 말씀이다…ㅎㅎ)

게다가, 올해는 회사 발표가 일요일에 하는 참극(?)이 발생하여 일요일날 집에서 회사일로 보는 사태가 발생…ㅎㅎ
