사람들은 대부분 높은 연봉을 받길 원한다.
아마 대부분 1억 정도를 고액연봉의 척도로 보고 있지 않을까?
하지만 현실은 정말 잔인하고 험난한게 사실이다.

생각해보자.
내가 사업주라면.. 어떤 사람에게 1억 정도의 연봉을 거뜬히 줄 수 있을까?

진정으로 많이 받길 원한다면..
가치를 창출할 수 있는 사람이 되어야 한다.

그러기 위해선 엄청 많은 노력이 필요하지 않을까?
시트콤이나 연예뉴스 같은 것에 시간을 낭비하는 것보단..
고민들을 할 시간이 더 많아야겠지.

게임의 레벨업 처럼..
물의 끓는 점이 100도인 것 처럼(?)
승화되기 위해선 많은 에너지가 필요하다.

내 인생의 임계점 역시 그렇겠지.
더 노력해보자.

블로그를 상당 기간 방치해두었다.
글도 잡다한 글들만 올리고 별로 유용하지 않다.

하는 일도 뭔가 정체된 느낌이고
하루 종일 이메일을 읽다 시간이 다 가버린다.

내가 지금 필요한 것을 무엇일까?
정리가 필요한 시기다.

내 인생 지도를 펼치고
내가 있는 곳이 어디인지
어디로 가야하는지
다시 확인해볼 시점이다.

This is the text of the Commencement address by Steve Jobs, CEO of Apple Computer and of Pixar Animation Studios, delivered on June 12, 2005.


I am honored to be with you today at your commencement from one of the finest universities in the world. I never graduated from college. Truth be told, this is the closest I've ever gotten to a college graduation. Today I want to tell you three stories from my life. That's it. No big deal. Just three stories.


The first story is about connecting the dots.


I dropped out of Reed College after the first 6 months, but then stayed around as a drop-in for another 18 months or so before I really quit. So why did I drop out?


It started before I was born. My biological mother was a young, unwed college graduate student, and she decided to put me up for adoption. She felt very strongly that I should be adopted by college graduates, so everything was all set for me to be adopted at birth by a lawyer and his wife. Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.


And 17 years later I did go to college. But I naively chose a college that was almost as expensive as Stanford, and all of my working-class parents' savings were being spent on my college tuition. After six months, I couldn't see the value in it. I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life and no idea how college was going to help me figure it out. And here I was spending all of the money my parents had saved their entire life. So I decided to drop out and trust that it would all work out OK. It was pretty scary at the time, but looking back it was one of the best decisions I ever made. The minute I dropped out I could stop taking the required classes that didn't interest me, and begin dropping in on the ones that looked interesting.


It wasn't all romantic. I didn't have a dorm room, so I slept on the floor in friends' rooms, I returned coke bottles for the 5¢ deposits to buy food with, and I would walk the 7 miles across town every Sunday night to get one good meal a week at the Hare Krishna temple. I loved it. And much of what I stumbled into by following my curiosity and intuition turned out to be priceless later on. Let me give you one example:

Reed College at that time offered perhaps the best calligraphy instruction in the country. Throughout the campus every poster, every label on every drawer, was beautifully hand calligraphed. Because I had dropped out and didn't have to take the normal classes, I decided to take a calligraphy class to learn how to do this. I learned about serif and san serif typefaces, about varying the amount of space between different letter combinations, about what makes great typography great. It was beautiful, historical, artistically subtle in a way that science can't capture, and I found it fascinating.


None of this had even a hope of any practical application in my life. But ten years later, when we were designing the first Macintosh computer, it all came back to me. And we designed it all into the Mac. It was the first computer with beautiful typography. If I had never dropped in on that single course in college, the Mac would have never had multiple typefaces or proportionally spaced fonts. And since Windows just copied the Mac, its likely that no personal computer would have them. If I had never dropped out, I would have never dropped in on this calligraphy class, and personal computers might not have the wonderful typography that they do. Of course it was impossible to connect the dots looking forward when I was in college. But it was very, very clear looking backwards ten years later.


Again, you can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future. You have to trust in something — your gut, destiny, life, karma, whatever. This approach has never let me down, and it has made all the difference in my life.


My second story is about love and loss.


I was lucky — I found what I loved to do early in life. Woz and I started Apple in my parents garage when I was 20. We worked hard, and in 10 years Apple had grown from just the two of us in a garage into a $2 billion company with over 4000 employees. We had just released our finest creation — the Macintosh — a year earlier, and I had just turned 30. And then I got fired. How can you get fired from a company you started? Well, as Apple grew we hired someone who I thought was very talented to run the company with me, and for the first year or so things went well. But then our visions of the future began to diverge and eventually we had a falling out. When we did, our Board of Directors sided with him. So at 30 I was out. And very publicly out. What had been the focus of my entire adult life was gone, and it was devastating.


I really didn't know what to do for a few months. I felt that I had let the previous generation of entrepreneurs down - that I had dropped the baton as it was being passed to me. I met with David Packard and Bob Noyce and tried to apologize for screwing up so badly. I was a very public failure, and I even thought about running away from the valley. But something slowly began to dawn on me — I still loved what I did. The turn of events at Apple had not changed that one bit. I had been rejected, but I was still in love. And so I decided to start over.


I didn't see it then, but it turned out that getting fired from Apple was the best thing that could have ever happened to me. The heaviness of being successful was replaced by the lightness of being a beginner again, less sure about everything. It freed me to enter one of the most creative periods of my life.


During the next five years, I started a company named NeXT, another company named Pixar, and fell in love with an amazing woman who would become my wife. Pixar went on to create the worlds first computer animated feature film, Toy Story, and is now the most successful animation studio in the world. In a remarkable turn of events, Apple bought NeXT, I returned to Apple, and the technology we developed at NeXT is at the heart of Apple's current renaissance. And Laurene and I have a wonderful family together.


I'm pretty sure none of this would have happened if I hadn't been fired from Apple. It was awful tasting medicine, but I guess the patient needed it. Sometimes life hits you in the head with a brick. Don't lose faith. I'm convinced that the only thing that kept me going was that I loved what I did. You've got to find what you love. And that is as true for your work as it is for your lovers. Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven't found it yet, keep looking. Don't settle. As with all matters of the heart, you'll know when you find it. And, like any great relationship, it just gets better and better as the years roll on. So keep looking until you find it. Don't settle.


My third story is about death.


When I was 17, I read a quote that went something like: "If you live each day as if it was your last, someday you'll most certainly be right." It made an impression on me, and since then, for the past 33 years, I have looked in the mirror every morning and asked myself: "If today were the last day of my life, would I want to do what I am about to do today?" And whenever the answer has been "No" for too many days in a row, I know I need to change something.



Remembering that I'll be dead soon is the most important tool I've ever encountered to help me make the big choices in life. Because almost everything — all external expectations, all pride, all fear of embarrassment or failure - these things just fall away in the face of death, leaving only what is truly important. Remembering that you are going to die is the best way I know to avoid the trap of thinking you have something to lose. You are already naked. There is no reason not to follow your heart.


About a year ago I was diagnosed with cancer. I had a scan at 7:30 in the morning, and it clearly showed a tumor on my pancreas. I didn't even know what a pancreas was. The doctors told me this was almost certainly a type of cancer that is incurable, and that I should expect to live no longer than three to six months. My doctor advised me to go home and get my affairs in order, which is doctor's code for prepare to die. It means to try to tell your kids everything you thought you'd have the next 10 years to tell them in just a few months. It means to make sure everything is buttoned up so that it will be as easy as possible for your family. It means to say your goodbyes.


I lived with that diagnosis all day. Later that evening I had a biopsy, where they stuck an endoscope down my throat, through my stomach and into my intestines, put a needle into my pancreas and got a few cells from the tumor. I was sedated, but my wife, who was there, told me that when they viewed the cells under a microscope the doctors started crying because it turned out to be a very rare form of pancreatic cancer that is curable with surgery. I had the surgery and I'm fine now.


This was the closest I've been to facing death, and I hope its the closest I get for a few more decades. Having lived through it, I can now say this to you with a bit more certainty than when death was a useful but purely intellectual concept:


No one wants to die. Even people who want to go to heaven don't want to die to get there. And yet death is the destination we all share. No one has ever escaped it. And that is as it should be, because Death is very likely the single best invention of Life. It is Life's change agent. It clears out the old to make way for the new. Right now the new is you, but someday not too long from now, you will gradually become the old and be cleared away. Sorry to be so dramatic, but it is quite true.


Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma — which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition. They somehow already know what you truly want to become. Everything else is secondary.


When I was young, there was an amazing publication called The Whole Earth Catalog, which was one of the bibles of my generation. It was created by a fellow named Stewart Brand not far from here in Menlo Park, and he brought it to life with his poetic touch. This was in the late 1960's, before personal computers and desktop publishing, so it was all made with typewriters, scissors, and polaroid cameras. It was sort of like Google in paperback form, 35 years before Google came along: it was idealistic, and overflowing with neat tools and great notions.


Stewart and his team put out several issues of The Whole Earth Catalog, and then when it had run its course, they put out a final issue. It was the mid-1970s, and I was your age. On the back cover of their final issue was a photograph of an early morning country road, the kind you might find yourself hitchhiking on if you were so adventurous. Beneath it were the words: "Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish." It was their farewell message as they signed off. Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish. And I have always wished that for myself. And now, as you graduate to begin anew, I wish that for you.


Stay Hungry. Stay Foolish.

Thank you all very much.

네이버의 플래시 광고를 보게 되면
사용자의 입력을 유도하고 그에 따른 액션으로
플래시가 확대되어 넓은 화면을 볼 수 있게 되어있다.

이는 돌리면서 재밌는 사용자경험을 유도하는 동시에
넓은 화면으로 광고효과를 최대화하는 효과가 있다.

이러한 점을 바탕으로 위젯의 확대 기능은 어떨까?
평소엔 위젯의 보통 크기를 유지하다가
특정 버튼을 눌렀을 때

사용자에게 더 많은 정보를 보여줌과 동시에
작은 공간의 제약을 잠시라도 벗어나면 어떨까..

기술적으론 좀 생각해봐야할 문제지만.. (div, flash object)

하루하루 한 일이 의미없게 느껴질 지도 모르지만..
그것들 하나하나가 이어져서
나중에 커다란 그림을 그리게 된다는 것을 믿을 수 있을까?

믿고 싶다.
믿는다.
어제오늘 한 내 삽질이
언젠가 큰 일을 하기 위한 과정이었다고.

미래 계획의 일환으로 자격증 하나를 공부하고 있다.
그래봤자.. 조금 덜 흔한 자격증 하나일뿐..

내가 이 공부를 하면서 드는 생각은...
이런 기술들이 이미 널리고 널렸고..
난 단지 그거에 대해 라이선스를 획득하는 것 뿐이고..(자동차 운전면허증처럼)

진짜~
운전을 잘 한다는 것을 증명하는 것은 아니지 않나라는 생각이 든다.
어차피.. 내가 범용(범상하게)으로 일할 사람도 아닐 것이고..
어느 한 분야를 획기적으로 잘 해야하지 않을까 하는 생각이 들었다.

그림이든
설계든
프로그래밍이든
운동이든..
언변이든..

국내에서 10년, 20년 기술자로 살 수 있는 여건도 아닐 것이고..
영어회화를 꾸준히 하는 것도 그 미래 계획의 일환이 아닐까 싶다.

장모님처럼 음식을 엄청 잘 한다거나
(사실 뭐든 잘 하신다. 주식도 부동산도.. 못하시는 게 없는 분.. 사주도 잘 보시니.. 뭐)
한의학을 배워 누군가에게 도움이 된다던가..
나도 뭔가 선택하고 집중해야할텐데..

최신 기술을 좇는 사람처럼..
수명이 짧을 듯한 (?) 직업을 택한 것이 아닌가 하는 생각..
미래의 Tech Sensing도 지금처럼 눈이 반짝 빛나고 있을 것인지..

아니면 정말로 이 모든 부질없는 듯한 일들이
엄청난 시너지 효과를 발휘해서
미래에 내 큰 지식의 발판이 될 것인지..
아직 잘 모르겠다.

RIA기술이냐..
웹서비스 개발이냐..
아니면 새로운 가치를 창조하는 사람이 될 것이냐..

시난아.
넌 뭘 하고 싶은거니.
먹고 살기 위해 하는 것은 아니잖니.
그냥 개발이나 잡다한 일을 하려고 하는 것도 아니잖아.
뭔가 네가 꿈꾸고 바라는 미래가 있을 것 아니냐.
