Great journey Steve Jobs

Known for Apple Inc and every impact Apple’s products and technologies had over people’s lives and IT business trend changes brought in by iPod, iPad, iPhone and everything around it.

He was co-founder, chairman, and CEO of Apple Inc.
Served as CEO of Pixar Animation Studios
Served as member of the board of directors of The Walt Disney Company in 2006, after the acquisition of Pixar by Disney.
Credited in Toy Story (1995) as an executive producer.

Born as Steven Paul Jobs on February 24, 1955 in San Francisco, California, U.S.
Died on October 5, 2011 (aged 56) Palo Alto, California, U.S.

when he started, it was
Steve Jobs -> Apple -> great and wonderful ideas -> amazed and happy consumers

later it turned out as
Steve Jobs -> Everything wonderful, amazing and great!

His every product launch event was highly awaited and everything he used to say, used to get applause. Those applause were for Steve Jobs for the perception he had over people’s mind. A perception formed in years.

There are not many products and devices who are as loved and awaited as iPhone,iPad,iPod and iMac and other Apple products and technologies. Steve was behind them since inception till perception. He will remain one man whom people used to think and will continue to think when they will talk about apple products. People loved him!

A self made man who had seen toughest and darkest sides of life and carrier and witnessed brightest sides of success and change. A man who will be known for the decisions he made, for the passion and determination he had to bring in the change he wanted to bring.

Great journey Steve

Diaspora Share Button for WordPress

Today I have added the diaspora share button to my blog today. :-)

Though irony is, I am still waiting for the account promised by the cool n ambitious team by the end of October.

Though the buzz about Diaspora can’t be termed as viral, as it could be, given the claims/possibilities/potential of it replacing Facebook or other similar platforms. Yet, how so ever far they have come, is really commendable, specially when they say that some of the coolest things in facebook and google+ are inspired by diaspora.

I remember when these NYU folks put their revolutionary idea at Kickstarter. I really wanted something to happen in the near future and I wanted to be a part of it.

Its amazing to see how fat they have come. I am sure, some of us would have thought them a mere bunch of high-energy university geek kids inspiring other geek kids with not much of business vision or practicality in establishing it as social networking platform model. And now I must say I can see a good momentum around the echo-system it is building. Given the fact that it is growing in a model which generally grows popularity amongst the techies of universities and other geeks, I am not sure how soon it can be a channel where-in people would start using it as much part of their lives, as much as Facebook or twitter is now. They way diaspora is growing, it reminds me of college days when Linux used to be a buzz and we used to try-out things on it, and used to love everything about it more than Windows, yet we know Windows is still far more popular platform in commons. Having said all above, I would like to conclude with a note, that I am exited about it. And post is my tribute to that exitement.

:-( My page hacked )-:

What you see now is “managed to survive” look of my hacked(some time back) page. On 14th august night (15th august early morning), when I opened What you see now is “managed to survive” look of my hacked page.

On 14th August night (15th August early morning), when I opened my page, found it hacked and some “Islamic revolution” (as it appeared on the page) flag was hosted on the front page. Brilliant!! It reminded me of my still not not revived page (http://web.iiit.ac.in/~harshavardhan/). BTW latest was also asking to download some executable for better viewing of some contents :-o (really?). Well, good luck with revolution part guys!(in case you see this act as an serious attempt to spread word). And in case it is an hacking attempt just for fun, good luck with your learnings. And I am sorry! didn’t have much time to really know more and pay more attention to it. As I had to fix it to get it running.

After some investigation I found that my WordPress theme files are tampered. I made me bit disappointed as I had done some nice customizations. But anyways there is always a better scope of redesign once you are back in game. So here I go with my “managed to survive” look with a temporary look. Hope to come with a elegant appearance, soon!!!

15 August, Independence day

Flag of Indian Republic

Celebrating 65th independence day today and remembering about every last independece day I had seen since my school days;
in my school flag hosting by principal,
in dad’s office flag hosting by dad,
in college flag hosting by director,
in television by national leaders,
and few other places and few other people.

…remembering the time I used to look at the flag and the way I used to feel about it.
Back then I don’t know was it my innocence,
or a hope not touched by hard practical experiences and confrontations,
or a knowledge based on the beliefs of historical stories of the book,
or the heat of the moment.

I used to feel a rise in my heart beats, sometimes tears in eyes and pride in thoughts everytime, when everyone used to stand straight look at the flag, sing the anthem and few used to salute. I used to be one of them who used to salute.

Today I wish to feel the same way given every thing
…I had known since then,
…I had seen since then,
…I had learned since then,
…I had experienced since then,
…and all the bad which I had done and everyone of us had done,
…and all the good I had done and everyone of us had done,
…I think now I would need some more stronger reasons to feel that way .
…I need more such chapters in our books which talk about the pride of our nation, since after we had gotten Independence.

I want to feel that way again, every son and daughter of this nation wants to feel that way.
I have hopes in me, in you, and in our nation.
AMEN!!!
HAPPY INDEPENDENCE DAY!!!

26 January, Republic Day

Flag of Indian Republic

There might be many problems in our county which we don’t like, we complaint about, we discuss, and we stand for them together.
…………..Then there are many goods things we cherish and appreciate and celebrate together.
There are many things we do for others and they don’t care about.
…………..Then there are thing which others do for us and we either don’t care or may be we stay unaware.
But whatever it is, it is “for us, of us and by us”, because we went republic on 26th January, 1950.
…………..I wish Happy Republic Day to our Republic Nation, to me, to you and to us.
Jai Hind
