An Experiment

A

For last couple of years, I have been silently running little social experiments during important Indian festivals. It’s dead simple — I just wish my contacts. Who doesn’t, you say? But here’s the catch: I wish them by their name. So instead of sending someone a half-assed forwarded message, I actually type text into the message box and hit send. For instance, if you are...

The 90’s Kids

T

For last two hours now, I have been listening to/watching music videos from the late 90s and early 2000s. Brings back a ton of memory that I thought I forgot. Shaktiman used to be aired during the weekends. That spinning superhero with the power of all the chakras in the human body. I was so in love with Gita Biswas. They changed actresses twice.

An Era of Colossal Waste

A

In 1965, Gordon Moore, cofounder of Intel, famously stated that the number of transistors in a dense integrated circuit doubles in about two years. That is to say, computing power doubles every two years. While this a very exciting achievement for engineers and computer scientists alike, it has produced nothing but idiocy on the part of developers and device manufacturers.
