3. Which kind of 5G applications or services you think will impact the most on Taiwan and on the world, respectively? Why?
4. Please recall the discussion during Session I. Does new technology, such as 4G or 5G, make us prefer being single more? Why or why not?

文章 Iris Wu »

We are having a series of discussion on “Relationship” in recent YoYo meetings:
Holly’s “Flirting”, Stephen’s “Loneliness”, Morris’ “Single or Marries” decision and it will come to mine, “Why you will marry the wrong person”!
(Names are associated with their topic and have nothing to do with the reality of each topic. Please don’t overinterpret the pair! :lol: )

If you are good at flirting, and don’t want to die alone, then, “to be single or to get married” is not a difficult decision. But if you understand well about the human design flaws, and enjoy the technological companionship, then staying single can be seriously taken into consideration. :P

being single will be better off when people get old is absolutely a fallacy, because it sounds like it has to be based on two different situations- when somethings go wrong in a marriage at later stage and when everything goes right for an old single person. it will always be better when comparing to something that goes wrong, won't it? :lol:

by the way, i would be very interested to know why you will marry the wrong person!! :P
i might be a cynic and, a sceptic as well but, i'm definitely not a bad person!!

The reason why married people will be better off is that they have been tortured and then survived. As you know "What is dead may never die, but rises again, harder and stronger."
In matters of style, swim with the current; in matters of principle, stand like a rock.

1.Iris, Luis, and Rock, thank you for your valuable inputs before the meeting. Also thank very much to all of the participants for your active discussion and presentation. We had 21 participants as follows:
Amy, Annie, Authur, Christine, David, Hever, Iris, Jason, Jeff(New comer), Jimmy, Julian, Kat, Luis, Morris(Host), Sabrina, Sherry(Host's daughter?), Shirley, Steven, Tashi, Wehan, and Winston.

2.Regarding Session I, under the guidance of Iris, the topic was the Part III of Relationship series of our club. I think we all agreed that having a relationship is important even though it is painful sometimes because we do not want to live a lonely life. However, if it is necessary to get married is a harder decision. After my simple survey, 4 out of 6 married participants, and 8 out of 15 unmarried ones, voted for getting married. Therefore, our country still have hope due to more people still preferring getting married.

3.As for Session II, I was surprised that most participants were already very familiar with 5G applications or services. I was especially amazed by so many questions and feedback when I talked about the B2B2X model. I really learned a lot from you. I think one of the beauties of Yoyo's discussion is that we can freely share and learn different ideas from each other in English. Now I even more understand the importance of different aspects or ideas, especially devil's advocate, in a group/team.

thank Morris for his professional sharing.

(applause)



by the way, what Rock said sounds like something along the lines of "what can't kill you will make you stronger", doesn't it? that is to say if you are able to survive in a marriage, you will definitely become stronger than ever before!! am i right? :lol:
