Moving on

December 25, 2011

The time has arrived.

I am now headed to tumblr, but this time with my own domain name.

I still remember the time I moved to wordpress from blogger. WordPress had been my platform of choice as they added features and faster and better than anyone else at that time.

Tumblr seems to be make it easy to use all kinds of media in our posts – short posts / long posts / photos / videos etc and I like that.

2010 – Tweet-by-Tweet!

January 21, 2011

Taking inspiration from Ramesh Srivats’ post , here’s a snapshot what my mind coughed up on twitter in 2010 -

JANUARY  -

How about a “Keep as unread” option for missed calls on the phone. Also a “Last called time” for each contact

It is irrational to believe that being rational is right

FEBRUARY  -

your solution is as weak as your weakest assumption..

My name is (guldu) Khan!

Smart and hard working is a deadly combination of personal qualities, but rarely seen together. Plain hard work beats plain smartness anyday

MARCH -

Maybe Murphy _is_ God.

speak your mind. and stay in a place where it doesn’t hurt to do it.

Resilience is the secret of the victorious.

Information overflow is better than information underflow

God lives in the stomach. look no further!

APRIL -

There’s always space for one more quality player. Gmail, Facebook, Iphone,. None were the first to do what they do..

eat to celebrate. celebrate to eat.

It’s fine to make an irrational decision, as long as there is no illusion that it is rational

MAY -

Once people think they know you, they don’t look beyond.

Quality is a culture.

you can’t really argue much with the compiler, can you?

JUNE -

Productivity kills creativity

‘Self-motivated’ is a myth.

JULY -

clear. concise. complete. #meetings_should_be

Amber is not green!! #traffic_rules_for_dummies

AUGUST -

This is what I want. This is the requirement. You can’t change the requirement.. You have to change the product!

short term scheduling. medium term scheduling. long term scheduling. Where should I spend more time?

What you sow so shall you reap; so also what you reap so shall you sow

SEPTEMBER -

Home is where sweet saaru-anna is!

NOVEMBER -

Psychology is harder than Technology.

can I claim life insurance that I don’t “have a life”! :P

What does time come from?


TED videos on phone with subtitles

May 20, 2010

There’s subtitles available on the TED website, can i have it offline?

Yes, you can! Superb conceptualization and implementation at – http://tedtalksubtitledownload.appspot.com/

You can get the .srt files from the above url, and merge them into the video file using a free application like Any Video Convertor (which itself is a GUI for ffmpeg)

Super! Now you have it! Really good thing to try, if you also spend 3-4 hrs in commute to work like i do.

If you haven’t ever watched a Ted video yet, check this out – http://www.ted.com/talks/hans_rosling_at_state.html. It’s one of the best talks I’ve heard on TED. I use miro to download videos from rss feeds. You can directly download from their webpage as well. They give you a direct download button for every talk in its webpage.


Phone conversation lengths

March 13, 2010

I felt, recently that while speaking to ppl after a long time, there are hardly things to talk..

duration of phonecall per rate of phonecall

Now, have you felt it? Why is it so? My hypothesis is that when looking at life in a long-term perspective, there’ll be little that is off-average which can be spoken about. Of the short term, the variance will be more.

events happening in life over time ( couple of months covered in this graph, say)


Value of lost things

January 24, 2010

The value of anything is said to be perceived better on its loss.

True, as most of us would have experienced with one thing or the other.

Logically, is there a solution to this?

How enjoyable the world would be, if only!


rhythm of life

January 20, 2010

Think are so much easier to make happen when its a habit.

Have you noticed that often when you break a habbit, it suddenly seems so much more difficult to carry out, though you had easily and routinely performed the activity earlier.

To do things on time is a habbit. Not doing it on time is also a habbit.

Check your twitter timeline, you blog post frequency. Things done regularly get done, and the rest simply get ignored though there might have been bandwidth to do it.

So. what?

Are you late for the daily morning office cab everyday?

Do you read the newspaper everyday?

Are you late for lunch with your colleagues everyday?

Are you late in your project deliverables every time?

Are you late in coming back home from office regularly?

Do you miss brushing you teeth in the night often?

Do your clear your google reader backlog everyday?

After all, what an inspirational book (or a how-to-lose-weight or a how-to-make-money ) do is to provide guidelines.

If it doesn’t get done, it doesn’t get done.


Achievers of Excellence – Talk by Harsha Bhogle

January 20, 2010

A couple of days back, I was forwarded this link, most likely by pachi.

Its a talk by Harsha Bhogle at IIM-A, about life, his college, professional career, personal ideals beautifully analysed and presented. Highly inspirational. Lot to learn about life, career and excellence from this man.

A must-watch, though agreeably, its a bit long. Trust me, take time out and watch it within this week, you’ll love it.
