Sending Messages to Yourself on Skype

I always like a simple feature in Slack that you can chat with yourself to store notes, links, files or your own reminders. Despite that fact that I use it most of the time, this feature doesn’t exist in Skype, and I really hate it.

Turns out there is a simple trick to do it that I happened to discover yesterday:

On Skype, create a new group chat with only you in there.

Done! Name the group my notes or something. Pin it so that you can easily access to it. One more thing: enable the Share Link then save the link. In case you happen to accidentally leave the group, you can re-join it again.

Now that Skype can have the chat-to-yo-self feature like Slack does.

Big Data and its application?

I & my girlfriend was coming back to our hometown, Bien Hoa city. As usual, every time I was in motion, I always have some really deep thought.

When she & I was discussing about how we could invest money by buying gold and then selling again to make some profit, a thought came to me that we can develop a algorithm that can analyze the up & down of gold market and predict when should buy and when we should sell gold to make the best profit. And this can apply to every thing, for example, real estate, clothing, stock, etc. Or we can gather data from Google Map and then apply principle of Feng Shui to detect and suggest which land we can invest and make profit.

The problem is, how can I develop such system when I don’t have any knowledge and experience in Data Analysis and Big Data algorithm. I think I need to consult with someone else about this.
