Rains, Mountain, Winds, Clouds & Sarah

Its been really long time I posted anything. Really running outta time now..
especially there's no time for blogging when you have enough faith in
personal interactions. But taking out some of my usually invaluable time..

This is what rocked my weekend this time. A mansoon trek with a specical guest and
few of the colleages cum friends. We went to see Bhaje caves and Lohgad near
Lonavala with our Guest Sarah on the day when Sun had bad times with clouds.
Although it was my easiest trek so far, it was one of the most enjoyed one.
And really worth mentioning fact that I didn't fall for a single time ;-).

There was a hard time when we had to hold each other against the awefully
strong and slapping wind and that too when we three, only three, Ankit, me and
Maku were on the edgemost point of the mountain, and nobody could see us
due to clouds between, a real deadend.

There is lot more to talk on this and few really good moments that came along
with Sarah.. I wish she comes back soon.., but forgive me for
the time thats dropping out of my palm like sand..

Let the details be some other time. For the time being, enjoy the pics..

Me, Subbo, Aman, Ankit & Sarah

Why are we standing here?

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…
