Programming alert… Where’s Om


Folks, it is that time of the year. The time when you have to shift your attention from yourself to your family. I am taking a short break from the daily routine and flying to India to spend some quality time with my parents and my brother’s family.


What does this mean? Two things – I won’t be furiously blogging, but blog I will. It means fewer posts from me, though longer posts since I am pretty sure the jet lag is going to cause a mini havoc on my sleep schedule. In the past I have worried about leaving the blog untended, but this time around things are a lot different. The GigaTeam is in full effect, and by now you are familiar with most of them.

There is a lot of writing that has been postponed, mostly because of lack of time. I am going to work on some of those topics and finish that bit while away. Since this isn’t a working trip, I am not sure if I am doing some active reporting, though if someone wants to arrange a meet-up, please let me know. Next week would be perfect!

Me too a regular reader of ur blog; and incidentally am a resident of West Delhi too, where looks like you were too.(Google goes to the mall story).
Have a couple of ideas for a gaming startup and looking for mentorship in approaching a VC / Seedfund.
Would be great to meet/chat/talk/discuss
whatever works and sound out some of these ideas with u.
Mail me if this seems interesting enough.

Very interested to read the live commentaries about future of outsourcing with your personal touch…

Thanks for your blog — Addictive reading.
In the mornings, coffee is secondary thing, your blog is always the first one in my todo list :-)

Have a great time, Om!

There is a lot of exciting stuff happening in India, and the growth/exuberance seems almost like what it was in 1999 in the valley :) A lot of us are now wondering how sustainable this growth will be and whether a slowdown is around the corner… Hopefully, we will hear your take after the visit!

John Cornett,

first of all i am a big fan of om records, have eight of your compilations and some of the individual works of guys like mark farina.

secondly, i forgot to add http:// and that is why the link to your site wasn’t working. i am sorry for not doing the photo courtesy. may bad. i was in a rush to get out of town.

lastly, you just made me #2 om on the planet. as per google.

As a regular reader of your blog I was surprised and somewhat excited to see that you used our promotional banner for our new release “Om Chilled”.

Are you a fan of the label?

Can we get a credit for the banner/release?



Hi Om,

Have a nice trip in India. We are working on video sharing idea and would like to meet you sometime.

Enjoy your trip.



Any plans of coming down to Bangalore? We could have a meetup of all Mobile/Wireless folks here.

Would be great to meet up if you’re in mumbai for a bit. I run a web/mobile apps startup in mumbai (right next to the airport).

Cheers.. Amit


Hi Om,

Where in India would you be travelling to? Do you have plans of visiting chennai when you are here? I am based out of Chennai and would like to meet you.



Hi Om,

Avid fan of your blog.. have a good and refreshing trip in India. I want to meet you sometime.. since I am working on my startup too, would be interested in getting your thoughts.. but may be we can get together once you come back (gives me more time to prepare :-) ).

Enjoy your trip..



Saw the article on you being a nominate as a HOT geek on PopSuger. Congrats! I would leave the country too to avoid mass attacks of females emailing ya! :p
