sleeping late

After practicing for so many years..(I think it started with my study hours in 10th class or even before that when I used to watch late night movies).. it has become a habit for me to sleep late in night.. mostly after 1 O'clock.. Okey.. I know there are so many creatures in this species of Human kind who spend nights awakened.. but atleast most of they follow some or any exception to that rule.
But for me, case has become really wierd.. Cmmon what do you do when its raining out in midnight, you are alone in a room, you dont have your laptop with you, the power is already gone and your cell phone battery is also down, you don't have a FM radio with you, you dont have a girlfriend to do anything.. (I mean.. making a late night call ;)), mosquitos have started theire work around you and you dont even have a candle in room. Other guys in the next room prefered sleeping early for all those reasons. But not me.. then what was I doing.. got a pen, a rough sheet of paper and started writing anything that came to mind... Any heard shaayari, songs that I still remember, and yes some of my own creations and so on!
do you remember it was dark in room? still I was writing.. till 1:30 I continued the stuff and finally decided to sleep(thinking of the office to attend next morning). When I woke up next morning(ie today) to see what have I written, amazingly enough the handwriting was better than what I usually would write. hehe dont laugh.. my usual handwriting is not that bad.

Designing for scalability – a startup perspective

What is scale? Is it the number of customers a company has? Is it the number of products that are sold? Is it the amount of revenue the company makes? Is it the amount of infrastructure one has? Or is it the number of features the product has? Well, it can be all of this or none of this. When an organization talks about scale it is not just a number. When an economist talks about it, again it’s not just a number. For an economist, the scale is about doing more with less. Scale is about perspective, about relationship between two or more variables that ultimately help you generate optimum value for your efforts.
Consider this, let’s say you are into making a lollipop. Selling 10 lollipops you earn $100 revenue of which $10 is you profit and $90 is the cost. When you increase you production you start selling 100 lollypops and earn $1000 revenue with $100 as your profit and $900 as cost. Did you really benefit from the scale here? In absolute terms, of course. In terms of ratios though,…

Asking for a slate that already is written into!

If I give you a slate or a notebook and a chalk or pencil, would you respond by complaining that it does not have anything written on it? Well that is how most educationist view technology as and that is what the problem with technology providers is.  We are so habituated to fast food instant noodle, that we want even our slates to be pre-written by someone else. The marketeers have lost the vision of utility of slate so much that they are still busy in selling slates with pre-written alphabets on them, and they are not giving you any chalk for your own writing as well.

Sounds absurd? Then remove slate and notebook, and put in its place the modern technology, computers, laptops, tablets and online learning solutions. In place of chalk and pencil, consider your ability to create and modify your own digital knowledge.  Of the hundreds of e-learning, online tutorials, online courses, are there any that focus on giving their learners the experience of creating knowledge on their own, put…
