About a year ago (July 28, 2009), I wrote perhaps one of the stupidest tweets in the history of the Twitterverse. Yes, the tweet [picture above] was written as a joke – an example of my dry humor. You see, I had ruptured my left Achilles about 5 years ago playing basketball.
Let me say that while I’ve had my share of injuries and painful incidents (like having my right leg run over by a car), a ruptured Achilles (to date) has been the most painful physical pain (doubt emphasis) I have ever experienced. I’d like to say that I was one tough dude but instead, I winced, whined, and whimpered like a baby.
And so, I thought it would be funny to write that tweet except that night, I managed to actually rupture my other Achilles.
- Da*n. [I admit, I used other words that night]
- What a sick tweet.
- How stupid.
Last year was the toughest year of my life. And rupturing my Achilles was the event that basically broke my back and it wasn’t just the physical pain…there was so much more but in the end, it was God’s way of showing mercy and grace to me and my soul.
To this day, I share that in looking back, I felt as if God had literally snapped my Achilles that night in order to slow me down or to literally stop me. Read the rest of this entry »

Everyone has World Cup fever and why not, it’s a beautiful game so I was thrilled to have my two teams advanced to the round of 16. Like a brilliant theologian, I tweeted the above
But apparently, God doesn’t answer prayers about sporting events or about my request to God bless Korea and USA and no one else… Don’t get all riled up and call the Theology Police Read the rest of this entry »

What in the world happened to MySpace? Did Robert Murdoch make a bad investment when he purchased MySpace for 580 million dollars in 2005? At one point, people were referring to MySpace as a potential Google killer. Wow – how fast things change.
I never had a MySpace account but dabbled with Q Cafe’s MySpace account and wasn’t impressed. But recents news [shared below] via the Guardian UK is not news to anyone, right? MySpace – Web 2.0′s darling a few years ago is now less than half the size of it’s younger rival, Facebook, and now officically in decline.
So, here are my questions in an attempt to better understand the fast changing aspect of social media and post Web 2.0.
What happened to MySpace? Will it be around 5 years from now?
We all know that businesses come and go; New trends come and go. But in light of our incredibly fast changing world especially via technology Read the rest of this entry »

First of all, I’ve sold out more of my soul and am now on Twitter [thanks for all the Twit advice]. My handle is @eugenecho. My goal is to get 5,000,000 followers so I can start my own international city. Let me begin by thanking all the Eugene Cho(s) in the world for not being geekier or techier and taking the ID. You all are truly servants.
But now that I’m twittering, switching over to the Mac might be the last straw before my soul is lost to the god of trendiness. I recently purchased a used newer PC but over this weekend, I was seriously tempted to get a Mac. I saw some folks demonstrate video and powerpoint stuff and was a little envious. And after my recent post about PC vs Mac, I had three people offer to send me money including one person that was willing to make up the entire difference between my church’s $800 budget and a new Mac. Crazy. I said, ‘No,’ but now, I’m a little tempted.
On Saturday night, I updated my Facebook status with this note:
Eugene is having a moment of weakness and thinking of getting a Mac…
and started laughing my head off at the responses that came in. Here’s a sample Read the rest of this entry »
