A few weeks back, HyperActiveX asked me something on Twitter. “What is your data flow? Have you mapped it yet?” or something to that effect. This had been on my mind for quite a few months and I always pushed it to the back burner. Quadrant I vs. Quadrant II. The usual story. But his
Many folks asked me for an update on Pune’s Blog Camp, after the previous photo-post. How was the experience? Was it worth it? Who was there? Not being diplomatic, I can say that the experience was an interesting one for me, with positives and negatives. I had never been to any blog camp, bar camp,

An assortment of stuff I came across in cyberspace, offered second hand, for anyone who may be interested. If you haven’t read it already, Thomas Friedman’s penultimate op-ed 9/11 Is Over, is a must-read. China has now started blocking all RSS feeds as well.
