Tôi viết bài này tham gia bàn tròn thảo luận tại sao nhân viên Việt Nam thiếu tinh thần hợp tác trên thời báo Kinh Tế Sài Gòn.

Theo tôi, có bốn lý do sau đây:

Thứ nhất,
người Việt Nam đã đưa môi trường làm việc, bạn đồng nghiệp vào trong
cuộc sống riêng tư của mình quá nhiều. Hầu hết chúng ta xem đồng nghiệp
là những người bạn thân thiết. Ở các nước phương Tây, cả các nước tiên
tiến trong khu vực, họ tách bạch rất rõ giữa đồng nghiệp và bạn bè, xem
đó là hai thế giới khác nhau. Tôi từng ngạc nhiên khi thấy một người
bạn Úc  tổ chức đám cưới, mời khoảng 200 người dự tiệc nhưng trong đó
chỉ có hai người làm việc cùng công ty. Trong khi đó, chúng ta làm việc
chung, chơi chung, nhậu chung. Gắn bó nhiều, "thương" nhiều, thì cũng
"ghét" nhau, "ganh tức" nhau nhiều. Những tình cảm "hỷ, nộ, ái, ố" vì
thế len lỏi vào trong môi trường làm việc – một môi trường đúng ra chỉ
nên có sự tôn trọng nhau, quý mến nhau như những đồng nghiệp.

Thứ hai,
người Việt Nam chúng ta còn thiếu một chút chuyên nghiệp trong làm
việc. Ở một số nơi, người ta có thể thảo luận, phê bình nhau chan chát,
để tìm ra ý hay cho công ty phát triển. Khi họp hành, họ phê bình, săm
soi ý tưởng, chứ không "tấn công" con người. Có những cuộc họp, họ sẵn
sàng thảo luận hàng tiếng đồng hồ, tuy có đỏ mặt tía tai… nhưng sau
khi đã đạt được ý tốt nhất là gần như họ không còn để ý đến những tranh
luận vừa xảy ra. Trong khi đó người Việt Nam chúng ta hay tự ái và hay
đưa danh dự cá nhân vào những ý tưởng của mình. Ý tưởng mà bị thảo
luận, phê bình thì cũng gần như cá nhân bị "tấn công". Điều đó thường
dẫn đến hai thái cực. Một là thương nhau, "dĩ hòa vi quý", cố gắng
không có ý kiến trái ngược và điều đó hoàn toàn không tốt cho sự phát
triển của tổ chức. Hai là ngược lại, "dập" không thương tiếc ý kiến của
những người "phe khác". Ý kiến càng khác nhau, thì mâu thuẫn cá nhân và
phe nhóm càng cao.

Thứ ba,
một số nhân viên tạo ra những phe cánh mâu thuẫn với nhau và đôi khi
đối đầu với cả cấp quản lý trực tiếp. Ngay cả ở một số công ty lớn của
nước ngoài tại Việt Nam, dù đã có hệ thống làm việc chuyên nghiệp trong
tuyển dụng và đánh giá nhân viên nhưng cũng không tránh được việc cư xử
cảm tính của một số "sếp"
người nước ngoài hay người Việt Nam. Chẳng
hạn đôi khi cũng có những trường hợp thăng tiến gây ngạc nhiên cho mọi
người. Và vì thế theo lẽ thường, một số người sẽ "tranh thủ" sếp, tạo
phe cánh để có thể "bay xa bay nhanh"
hơn bình thường. Riêng ở các công
ty, cơ quan nhà nước thì có thêm tình trạng nhiều nhân viên là người
nhà, là "đàn em" của anh Hai, anh Ba… do đó cấp quản lý trực tiếp
không dám "đụng" đến.  Còn  ở các công ty tư nhân, công ty cổ phần, đôi
khi nhân viên là người nhà của giám đốc hay của thành viên hội đồng
quản trị… các "nhân vật" này thường tạo ra những chuyện làm nội bộ
xáo trộn. Cấp quản lý dù có giỏi đến đâu  cũng bị "bó tay" và rất khó
làm việc.

Thứ tư,
một số người hay đặt quyền lợi cá nhân lên trên quyền lợi của tập thể.
Trong trường hợp hai quyền lợi mâu thuẫn nhau, một số người, bất chấp
tất cả, sẵn sàng theo đuổi quyền lợi cá nhân.  Để hạn chế được điều này
thì chính sách quyền lợi phải hết sức thực tế, công bằng cho cả cá nhân
và tổ chức và các cá nhân phải được đào tạo hết sức chuyên nghiệp.  

Thiết
nghĩ, nếu tìm thêm được nhiều nguyên nhân gây ra sự thiếu hợp tác trong
tổ chức để từ đó đưa ra các giải pháp làm tăng tinh thần hợp tác của
nhân viên thì hiệu quả của các tổ chức chắc chắn sẽ được nâng cao.

Bởi chưa đủ sức thuyết phục nên việc kiếm tiền vẫn là những điều ở thì
tương lai
. Những con số đổ vào nhiều trang mạng đã lên đến hàng triệu
USD
như một cuộc đua tiền của những nhà đầu tư khác nhau. Dù là sống
bằng tiền “buôn bán” đồ ảo trên mạng, bằng tiền thu quảng cáo trực
tuyến hoặc bằng bán sản phẩm thực dựa vào thương hiệu và cộng đồng ảo,
thì cũng chưa có điểm sáng nào trên thực tế.

Một khảo sát 15 mạng xã hội hàng đầu VN của tiến sĩ Lê
Minh Đạt cho thấy việc tiêu tốn nhiều tiền không giải quyết được vấn đề
thu hút người dùng. Chàng trai 26 tuổi đang làm việc cho dự án Boeing
vừa về quê lập nghiệp đưa ra một bức tranh khác: vẫn còn rộng đất dành
cho những người thật sự muốn tham gia cuộc chơi mạng xã hội tại VN.

Quả vậy, chừng nào thị trường chưa có một “người dẫn
đầu” thực thụ, thì mọi thứ vẫn còn bỏ ngỏ cho hàng loạt dự định mới,
khát vọng mới của một đoàn người trẻ chuẩn bị nhảy vào cuộc chơi của
những “nút mạng” và hệ thống nhánh của nó.

Since its release, the steady stream of updates have made Windows Vista
noticeably less annoying to use. The biggest stride forward was the
release of the operating system’s first service pack, back in March of this year. Neowin.net now claims that the second service pack is on its way, with the first beta being dropped on testers in the coming four weeks.

The final release of Vista’s second service pack will be delivered before Windows 7,
so we can expect it to arrive somewhere next year. A beta will appear
in the coming four weeks; invites have been sent out to beta testers,
Neowin claims. SP2 for Server 2008 follows the same time table. In
fact, a placeholder webpage is already available at Microsoft’s website.

The second service pack will include Windows Desktop Search 4.0,
support for Bluetooth wireless (including BT 2.1 fixes), and additional
application compatibility updates. Server 20008, "Microsoft
will include backwards compatibility with Terminal Services licensing
keys, improved manageability features with DFS/FRS console, and Storage
Resource Manager, print server and spooler performance improvements for
printers in Windows Vista and Server 2008 and improved error reporting
in DFSR to help identify incorrectly configured deployments which lead
to failed replication.

Internet security suites do little to protect users against exploits, according to security notification firm Secunia.

The Danish security notification firm is urging a root and branch
rethink on how security suites are designed, moving away from
"ineffective signature-based detection" to a smarter form of defence.

However, an anti-virus expert whose firm’s products were not involved
in the tests said Secunia’s approach only tested against one aspect of
how security suites protect consumers, and were therefore potentially
misleading.


Secunia tested 12 suites
(which typically bundle firewall, anti-malware
and anti-spam functions
) against a range of 300 exploits targeting
vulnerabilities in various high-profile programs.

Even though it blocked only 64 out of 300 exploits, Symantec’s Norton
Internet Security 2009 came out best from the test, detecting almost
ten times more exploits than its nearest competitor. Security suites
from the likes of Kaspersky, Check Point, Microsoft, AVG and McAfee all
flopped.

Security product bundles are marketed as comprehensive Internet
Security Suites, leaving the impression that the user is fully
protected against internet threats. Secunia’s tests suggest the
products fail to do what they say on the tin. Symantec has recently
begun introducing behaviour-based detection, which helps to explain why
its software did the best of a bad bunch.


Thomas Kristensen, chief technology officer at Secunia
, said that the
shortcomings of security suites combined with the fact users rarely
keep systems fully patched made a recipe for trouble.

"While we did suspect that the popular security vendors would score
quite poorly in detecting exploits, the extremely low detection rate
took us by surprise and this really begs the question: Does the
customer get their money’s worth?"

Computer users therefore need to keep up to date with patches in order
to have any hope of withstand hacking attacks. Secunia’s free Personal
Software Inspector
(PSI)* and the similar functionality within
Kaspersky Internet Security 2009 make it easier to keep up to date with
patching
.

Graham Cluley, senior technology consultant at Sophos, which focuses on
the corporate market and did not take part in the tests, agreed that
applying patches was important. "There’s no such thing as a perfect
security suite, but security software reduces threats and people
shouldn’t come away from these tests with the conclusion that they
these products are ineffective."

Cluley added that the tested problems might do better in real world
conditions rather than in the lab because of run time protection.
Security products commonly scan files before they are run as well as
monitoring what they are doing once they begin running. That means that
although Word files harbouring 0day exploits, for example, may make it
past scanners they might be prevented from running.

"They [Secunia] haven’t actually "run" these exploits on the computer –
so it’s not really a "real-life" test of how well these security suites
would perform," Cluley explained. "It sounds like only one aspect of
the suites was tested, rather than all of the ways in which they might
have been able to protect the users."

Secunia said its tests illustrated the shortcomings of signature-based
security suites. Generic detection of exploits would be a better
approach because what triggers a vulnerability (unlike the payload of
an attack) doesn’t alter, Kristensen pointed out.

"Even with a very rapid creation of payload-based signatures, all their
customers are still left exposed for a considerable amount of time from
the point when the criminals start distributing their new payload until
it has been ‘caught’, analysed, a signature has been created, the
signature has undergone quality assurance testing, the signature is
published, and finally downloaded and activated by the security
software," Kristensen said.

"Determining the characteristics of a vulnerability is somewhat more
complicated and takes longer than than creating a payload based
signature, however, it need only be created once," he continued. "Often
the security vendors can finish their analysis and create a signature
in the same time as the criminals can develop an exploit and start
their criminal attacks."

Cluley argued that this criticism was misplaced, as security firms all
moved away from signature-based detection years ago. He said modern
security suites made far greater use of generic and behaviour-based
detection as a way of dealing with the growing volume of malware-sample
production.

At its Professional Developers Conference (PDC) event
later this month, Microsoft will publicly unveil its "Windows Cloud"
Internet-based OS, the company confirmed. I’ve been told several times
by Microsoft representatives in the recent past that this system would
in fact be the focus of PDC, this year.

"We need a new OS designed for the cloud and we will introduce one in
about four weeks," Microsoft CEO Steve Ballmer said yesterday in London.
"We’ll even have a name to give you by then. But let’s just call it for
the purposes of today ‘Windows Cloud.’ Just like Windows Server looked a
lot like Windows but with new properties, new characteristics, and new
features,
so will Windows Cloud look a lot like Windows Server."

This platform has been in the works for a long time, and the most
obvious public face of Microsoft cloud work right now is the Live Mesh
project that was championed by Microsoft CTO Ray Ozzie. A session
description for the PDC describes a "Microsoft cloud platform" that
provides "scalability and availability" and "service isolation and
protection."

In an official statement, Microsoft confirmed the coming platform.
"Microsoft is investing heavily in its Software + Services vision,
particularly as it relates to the services platform to deliver a set of
solutions that address our customer’s needs," an official statement
reads. "We are working with many of our customers, partners and our
broad developer community to understand their needs for extensible,
scalable services platforms."

While Microsoft has been slowly and methodically embracing cloud
computing
for a few years now, this explicit admission that it is
working on a Windows OS that runs in the Internet cloud should put an
end to any nay saying. "We’ve gotta build a service that is Windows in
the cloud," Ballmer said.

Yes you do, Steve. Yes, you do.

Facing increased pressure from rivals Microsoft and Citrix Systems,
VMware will announce what it calls a ‘virtual datacenter operating
system’ at VMworld this week to extend virtualization beyond servers
and into all corners of the datacenter, including storage and network
equipment. The products are scheduled for release in 2009. The ‘VDC OS’
is not a product but a set of capabilities that will appear in VMware
Infrastructure 3 updates and other products.

There is no information about the pricing or a delivery timetable yet, but the list of new features is promising.
The new products can be broken roughly into two categories: software
that works at the virtual machine level for improving application
performance and availability and infrastructure products for managing
the wider datacenter.

List of modules in VMware 2009:


   * vNetwork – Virtual switch for a pool of virtualized servers


   * vStorage – Efficient "thin provisioning" for storage allocation to virtual machines


   * vCenter – An updated Virtual Center management suite. New modules include CapacityIQ, ConfigControl and Orchestrator.


   * vCloud – A set of technologies that enables hosting providers to act as cloud environments.


   * vAPP – A development tool for software vendors.


   * vClient – A new client virtualization layer for desktop, laptops and smart phones

VMware will be releasing APIs to increase the visibility to many of its
modules. VMware’s initiative to open its architecture to other vendors
is a promising step in the right direction

Thanks to all the hard work of the Mozilla community as of 9:15 AM PDT today
we are code complete for Firefox 3 Release Candidate 1 (RC1). New
nightly builds are available – if you are a nightly tester/Minefield
user you can help test these builds by selecting “Check for Updates”
from your help menu.

Assuming no new issues are found today the build team will start official prep work for Release Candidate 1 (RC1) tomorrow. QA will start their extensive RC1 test pass on Monday. If all goes well we should have the Release Candidate publicly available in late May.

RC1 is intended for wider scale public testing. Our 1.2M+ active
beta users will automatically get updated to RC1 when it is released.
If no new showstopper issues are found in RC1 it will
become Firefox 3 final. If we find any critical issues we will continue
to release new Release Candidates until we are ready for final ship.



Fedora is a Linux-based operating system that showcases the latest in free and open source software. Fedora is always free for anyone to use, modify, and distribute.
It is built by people across the globe who work together as a
community: the Fedora Project. The Fedora Project is open and anyone is
welcome to join.

The Fedora Project is out front for you, leading the advancement of free, open software and content.

Features:

  • This release features GNOME 2.22. GNOME now includes a webcam photo and video creation utility called Cheese,
    improved network filesystem support, a new international clock applet,
    Google Calendar support and custom email labels in Evolution, a new
    Remote Desktop Viewer, improved accessibility features, and PolicyKit integration.

  • KDE 4.0.3 is available in the KDE Live image as well as the regular DVD.
  • Xfce 4.4.2 is available as part of this release.
  • NetworkManager 0.7
    provides improved mobile broadband support, including GSM and CDMA
    devices, and now supports multiple devices and ad-hoc networking for
    sharing connections. It is now enabled by default on installations from
    DVD, CD, the network, and Live images.

  • The Fedora installer, Anaconda,
    now supports partition resizing for ext2/3, NTFS filesystems, creating
    and installing to encrypted file systems, improved Rescue Mode with
    FirstAidKit, independent locations for the second stage installer and
    the software packages. A redesigned, larger netboot.iso image now
    features a second stage installer partly for this reason.

  • Live USB images now support persistence, so your data and setting changes will be preserved even after rebooting.
  • PackageKit,
    a new set of graphical and console tools, with a framework for
    cross-distribution software management, has replaced Pirut in this
    release of Fedora. The PackageKit graphical updater is available
    instead of Pup. Behind PackageKit, the performance of yum has been significantly improved.

  • FreeIPA
    makes managing auditing, identity and policy processes easier by
    providing web-based and command line provisioning, and administration
    tools to ease system administration. FreeIPA combines the power of the
    Fedora Directory Server with FreeRADIUS, MIT Kerberos, NTP and DNS to
    provide an easy, out of the box solution.

  • Ext4,
    the next version of the mature and stable ext3 filesystem is available
    as a option in this release. Ext4 features better performance, higher
    storage capacity and several other new features.

  • This release of Fedora uses Upstart, an event-based replacement for the /sbin/init daemon.
  • Firefox
    3 brings a number of major improvements including a native look and
    feel, desktop integration, the new Places replacement for bookmarks,
    and a re-worked address bar.

  • The completely free and open
    source Java environment OpenJDK 6 is installed by default. IcedTea 7,
    derived from OpenJDK 1.7, is no longer the default. IcedTea includes a
    browser plug-in based on GCJ, and is available for both x86 and x86_64
    architectures. GCJ is still the default on PPC architecture.

  • OpenOffice.org 2.4, with many new features, is available as part of Fedora 9.
  • Fedora now includes Perl 5.10.0, which features a smaller memory footprint and other improvements.
  • Fedora now includes TeXLive to replace the older, unmaintained TeX distribution.
  • Fedora 9 features a 2.6.25 based kernel.
  • Kernel crashes can be more automatically reported to http://www.kerneloops.org/
    and diagnosed in a friendly way via the kerneloops package installed by
    default. Crash signatures are commonly referred to as oopses in Linux.

  • Work on the start-up and shutdown in X has yielded noticeable improvements
  • Details for Fedora-9-i386-CDs
