    I’ve been using way too many social networks and it is time to retire some of them. To find out which ones, I am running a simple experiment.

  • Moving past chaos

    The last few months have been chaotic for me. They could’ve been better, but I managed to accidentally introduce confusion, making them chaotic. I started way too many personal initiatives and ended up finishing none. These weren’t necessarily tech projects, just some personal initiatives around health, managing time, growth, etc. Not all of these initiatives…

    Happy New Year 2021

    Last year, when I wrote the “Happy New Year 2020” post, COVID-19 had just begun its course. Very few people in the world were aware of the full glory of the havoc it was about to wreck on the world. Looking back at that post, I just smile at how oblivious I was to what…

  • North

    I got an email this morning, with the subject “North + Google” from North. According to the email, Google had acquired them. A quick Google search about the company pleasantly surprised me that it was Thalmic Labs. I didn’t realize Thalmic Labs changed their name to North. I still remember getting excited when I received…

  • Decade In Review (2010 – 2019)

    Decade In Review (2010 – 2019)

    Every year, I write a Happy New Year blog post to recap my previous year. I’ve been doing this every year since the past 10 years. It sort of became a tradition. Now that we’ve entered a new decade, I thought it’d be fun to start writing a blog post to recap my previous decade.…

  • Working on Side Projects

    Working on Side Projects can be really fun. But, you know what’s not fun and sucks? Not finishing the project and abandoning it (also, Global Warming). This is a very common problem and most of us struggle with it. It gets trickier. Once you lose interest in the project and abandon it, guilt kicks in,…

    Something ’bout the struggle so divineThis sort of love is hard to define Jay-Z (Nickels and Dimes)

  • Game of Thrones

    I just finished watching the series finale of Game of Thrones (GoT) and it feels like the end of an era. I grew up watching the show these past 8 years. I still remember the day my ex-roommate, Gopi, suggested it to me for the very first time. I had just graduated and was actively…

    Happy New Year 2019

    Happy New Year! 🎉 2018 has been a great year for me. Both, professionally and personally. I’ve managed to be very productive in 2018 and it has been a very humbling experience. 2017 was a particularly tough year for me. I was really sad, went through a lot and I wanted to pull myself back…

  • Personal Blog

    A blog is a great place to post interesting, insightful and fun things. Or even boring things. It doesn’t really matter as long as you like doing it. I really enjoy reading my friends’ blogs. It has a different feel to it as opposed to reading a generalized feed on a social network. Typically, I…

  • Domain name purchase obsession

    I love buying interesting domain names. I do that with the hope that one day, I end up using the domain name for one of my side projects or at least work on a side project after purchasing the domain name. Sometimes, I just think of an idea and come up with a good name…

  • Happy New Year 2018

    Wish you all a very Happy and Prosperous New Year! 🎉 Cheers!

  • Happy New Year 2017

    Last year, I, royally screwed up the timing of my year in review post by posting it in July. I know, July is not really the best time to wish someone a Happy New Year, but, unfortunately, that was when I snapped out of my laziness to write a blog post. I didn’t want to…

  • Happy New Year 2016

    I haven’t yet wished you guys a Happy New Year since this is the first time I’m blogging this year. This is awkward. I’m going to go ahead and do it anyway – Happy New Year 2016 🎉 Here’s a quick recap of what I did in 2015: January, February (Nothing interesting happened) March I…

  • Happy New Year 2015

    March, not really the time of the year to wish someone a Happy New Year. I know, I usually have this post ready within the first two weeks of January (with an exception of last year). I have beenextremely busy with work and my side projects over the past few months and I could not…
