I just returned from Michigan, after spending a brief but absolutely enjoyable time with my sister, my two lovely nieces including a six week old, my brother-in-law and my mom! Well, you have heard stories about Jewish moms. Indian moms are times ten. She cooked, and cooked and cooked. And I ate and ate. I had forgotten how good home cooked Indian food tastes. I forgot, that I might be an author, a journalist, or whatever… but to mom I am still four years old. Except when she reminded me that I am not getting younger and should settle down. I already miss her. Oh sweet days of bliss… coming back, there is just too much to do, too many emails to answer and of course too many blog posts to read. (In case you were wondering, hyper-blogging will resume in a day or so. After I have digested the food, and the memories!)
The most enjoyable thus far, Paul Kedrosky’s colorful description of my contrarian thinking.
The irrascible Om Malik doesn’t like Google desktop. Among the most contrarian people I know, Om can be counted on to find an orthogonal way of looking at seemingly over-covered subjects. Case in point: Google’s new desktop search tool:
Thanks Paul, and thanks Forbes for teaching me how to think different. Thanks Paul, for I find you equally erudite and pointed in your analysis. Another must read to my list is James Enck who in this post highlights the differences between US and Europe when it comes to FTTH. Switching back to Google versus Blinkx, Paul agrees with about the UI. I found that others who also wondered about the web UI translated to a desktop UI. Another different opinion here.
I have noticed a new trend here in the name and that is modification in the Domain name : Ryze.com (Rize), Bryght.com (Bright) and now Yelp.com (Help) & Indian oldy Indya.com (India) . “Y” is cool these days…
