reblog

January 10, 2010

Giving life to an old and abandoned blog is called reblogging.

I thought about independently and wished to coin this new term today, but alas, found that Raiedzall had already done it 6 months ago here.

Good! If not for the free and wide internet, wouldn’t many invention efforts be duplicated?

How many man years would have been spent on re-inventing the wheel?

and how much more power given to the centralized repositories of knowledge ?

The internet is the greatest accelerator of mankind’s progress.

I hope I am at least the first one to make this quote ๐Ÿ˜‰

More thoughts –

Blog posts get written easily when you sit down to write them and start

Maybe i’ll try to write every wednesday and sunday.

returns from a blog

October 25, 2008

excerpts from here, an interview of Seth Godin who writes a very good blog

JS: Oh, it is the top marketing blog. I run another site thatโ€™s on that listโ€ฆ I think weโ€™re around 565th. You win. Anyway, letโ€™s talk blogs. Talk about the way yours has contributed to your individual brand, and why thatโ€™s so important.

SG: The best measure of a blog is not how many people it reaches, itโ€™s how much it changes what you do. Changes your posture, your writing, your transparency, your humility. What blogging has done for me is made me think. I get to think about how the outside world will understand something Iโ€™m trying to do, for example.

This means, of course, that you get almost all of the goodness of a blog long before you have a lot of readers.


world’s longest comment

July 8, 2008

today, after readding a very interesting blog post here, i started writing in the comments. it carried on and on and on, like had never happened before! after a full blog posts’ worth of material, finally i stopped. read it here. of course if its not removed by the author for having exceeded the readers patience.

it was through my RSS reader google reader, but now you can even insert ads in feeds – check out feedburner.com [and google bought it recently].

and wordpress.com had gone https – to add new post, to change settings, everything. and 256 bits! hmm. wonder if it’ll hurt mobile bloggers. [what Sid ?]

and tag suggest! at least the first time i’m seeing it!

when to make public your blog

May 16, 2008

Everyone would have a first blog

-me

And making it public is a decision you’d have to take a call. when ? is it good enough ? lotsa questions, excpecially with first-timers. in fact,ย  there are more ..

Ask your PR manager.

– shubha

๐Ÿ˜€ yeah right. ( here is where it gets boring ) lotsa people are not comfortable that people they know in real life read thoughts they’d have put up on the net. and the audience is (generally) not restricted with authentication requirement. How secure really is the internet? do i really have control ? Who knows who all’d get to read my blog! can i write against somebody ? my professor? ๐Ÿ˜€ my manager ? ๐Ÿ˜‰

In fact people have different blogs, and maintain anonymity in several. yet, a blog gets life many-a-times only when it is part of a network, a network of blogs or people (or spiders:D).

Alright, would this be best time to make my blog public ?

i’d say anytime is better than no time. i did say that to itrags and it still hasn’t really taken of !

great. let’s check vaastu ? it’s arbit anyway. let it be more arbit. it’s not gonna get any less arbit by doing this. ( maybe i should set an arbit quotient with every post. this post – 9 on 12)

okay this is may 16, may – jan feb apr may . 4 . sorry, jan feb mar apr may . 5 . lol. gotcha. one two three four five! aaagh FIVE

16th . aagh. 16 is 2 power x. i mean log16 is an int. it should make good vaastu. makes sense ?

ditch-all. go sleep.

yaaaaaawnnnn..


Get offline.. get peaceful..

March 8, 2008

The topics need not make sense. but in this case, it almost does ๐Ÿ˜‰
Hadn’t posted for yesterday. had been offline for most of the time the past two days.

It is relieving to the bloggers soul, should i say, when he does not write one day and yet the world does not go to war !! ๐Ÿ™‚

what i’d like is a number to call through a phone and speak the contents i wish to put on my blog. The system should automatically perform the required voice recognition and post the stuff into my blog. not too hi-fi, should be possible soon.

meanwhile, get offline , get peaceful..

PS: i know things are getting sad. we’ll see how it goes ๐Ÿ˜‰

Usual ways of Life

March 6, 2008

Today happened to have so many things not going according to (assumed) norms.

water shortage, power cuts ( added with non-functional essential ๐Ÿ˜‰ electric equipment ) and no internet!!
and a special lecture class that reverses today’s holiday status

yet, life seems normal!
whaaaaatttt??
