'펠프스의 탄생비화'라는 제목의 E-메일이 왔길래 무심코 열어봤다.

1, 2, 3초 후...


그런데 문득 이 친구는 정말 그랬을 수 있겠다는 생각이 들었다.

펠프스. 그때부터 빨랐구나....

MS got left in South Korea

life 2007.09.03 09:44

"We do not care any more how they think and write about MS." said one worker at Microsoft in Korea, "We only hope that they are trying to see us itself."

I do not reveal his identity, but his distrust against media was quite severe. he insisted that media like as newspaper and magazine should not distort news about MS and they have to convey news as they are.

I do not know when and how the crash between MS and media began. but, this is irony, as for monopoly of windows operation, there is no country like Korea.

according to various statistics, market share of windows operation in korea come to over 90%. web environment is focused on the windows. If you are using web browser like as firefox and safafi, you can not make use of on-line banking, because certification system of the online payment service have been operating for only windows.

MS is apparently taking hold of market here, none the less they insist that news media hate and look down on. As far as I know, that is true.
Whenever MS makes news, media are trying to seek for the weak point.
sometimes media intend to neglect MS and do not write the articles about them intentionally.

last month, MS korea had a big event called 'imagine cup' which is the biggest world software contest. lots of foreigner reporter were here to cover the event, but I could hardly see korean reporters. only some of them stopped in a while.

the reason media hate MS is compositive including advertisement problem and their impertinent manner to Media. the worst problem that MS seems to give up to last good relationship with media.

even though MS is monopoly company, but they are lonely in Korea.

오늘은 어제가 되고 내일은 오늘이 된다. 과거가 없다면 오늘도, 미래도 없는 법이다.

제2의 닷컴 열풍을 이끄는 디그닷컴의 초기 모습이다. 지금과 비교하면 조악하기 짝이 없지만 비웃지 마라. 저 모습이 없었다면 지금의 디그닷컴은 존재하지 않았을 테니까.

마찬가지다. 용가리가 없었다면 디워는 태어나지 못했다. 어제의 용가리는 오늘의 디워다.

그래서다. 과거는 부끄러워할 대상이 아닌 것이다. 그런데도 우리는 어제를 돌이켜볼 때마다 낯을 붉힌다. 때로는 가혹하리만큼 역사를 부정한다. 어찌하여 이런 못된 습성이 생겨났을까? 일제시대를 거치면서?  군사정권?  아니면 원래 우리 DNA가 그런가?
