Alive and Breathing

December 30, 2012

Sorry to disappoint I’m not dead. Back from an un-intended break !

For almost a year I could not muster time to write one short blog !! I’m the best of all the worsts in time-management. Need anymore proof ?

Its not that I ignored this space completely, blogs were always on my mind, topics would pop-up and fade out. One thing I know for fact now is that blogs are best written when the topic is hot and fresh in mind. Pushing it to later squeezes the juice out of the matter and the motivation to write.

Thats not all, I’ve two blogs, its hard to decide where to post what. I’m more fond of my wordpress blog than the one on blogger. It takes me to my past, and makes me smile on how I used to be and what I’ve become 🙂 Not sure in a good or bad way.

Closing my blogger blog !
More coming your way here, get set !!

Stuck – Blogger’s Block

July 30, 2010
I came across this good post on tips for blogging.
These are simple points but I agree they have on impact on reader. There is one point I face as a blogger. Sometime I get into what I call Blogger’s block, where you cannot think of any topic to blog. I’m currently stuck in one such block. Every topic seems too naive to blog. Laziness also plays some part in this.

<Deep Thought

I plan to break this block by posting some of my travel experiences of last few months. Hopefully that will give my blogging another kickstart.

Young Simona Halep under the scanner

July 12, 2009

Read this news today.

Simona Halep has her bust reduced
Junior tennis player gets her 34DD bust reduced
What has Simona been reduced to?

First thought that struck me was Simona Halep is very serious about her tennis career. At age of 17 if she is ready to go under the knife to improve her game.

Then a man’s brain took over, how have I not heard of this lady ? Does she really have biggies ? Let me google a bit kinds.

Found a petition online to the Romanian govt to prevent her going from under the knife. Then found this story on digg. Reading the comments I for once forgot that this lady is a tennis star !!!

With Internet some times things can get very awkward, every move a person make will be under the scanner and the views of all with good or bad intentions be out published for rest of the world to read. And create a impression of the person which may not be really true.

Wondering how would Simona react if she happened to read through these comments. May be just dismiss it or may be think may be think that she should have done this long time ago to get rid of all these perverts.

Anyways All the best with your game Simona.


Interesting Wearable Technology : Coined Sixth Sense

April 21, 2009

This is very very interesting. I was not completely taken aback looking at this. Such a tool is a eventuality of the mammoth amounts data being collected and recorded, with WiFi and WiMax maturing every single moment passing by.

The kind of use Im thinking of this technology, well can sound absurd. A magic goggle when switched on starts listing all the meta data associated with the items in view. The rendering would happen on the goggle screen, instead of it getting projected on the facing object. The data mine by Google relating to the personal habits of the users will be possibly enhanced to record every individuals idiosyncrasies, learn and use it accordingly.

Yes there will be privacy issues, if an individual has access to all the recorded idiosyncrasies of the other individual man !! there will be no privacy. Such idiotic cases will certainly be address when the technology is ready for deployment.

Great technology, needs lot of refinement. Some how have a strong feeling that this technology will find its abode in labs and never make it to the real world. Let see time will answer….


Posterous : The coolest way to blog

December 22, 2008

Posterous

Posterous presents an amazingly cool way to blog.

There are no setups no logins, just send a mail (Blog post) to post@posterous.com. When you send a mail for the first time a new is created. Then on every mail sent will be an unique post.

Its not really a unique concept. Blogger has been providing the feature to mail blog post for ages where in the text in the mail gets posted as a new blog. The presentation and the user experience is what sets Posterous aside of all the regular blogging sites. One more unique thing is that any a kind of attachment will gets posted along with the text in the email. Attachments can be photos, mp3s, documents and videos (both links and files).

Autopost is another cool feature where in posterous updates the other accounts (say twitter, flickr, blogger, facebook etc) instantly every time a post is made. There are further ways to control autopost. It allows tagging, searches and other standard features.

What impressed me the most is the user-experience, its amazingly simple, just send an email….
