Hello there! I have been missing in action for the past week or so, for mostly personal reasons. I have been thinking about today – the day when I turn 50 and enter the sixth decade of my life. I am supposed to say something profound, but I don’t really have much to say. I...

The Nicer Internet 

Tue, 13 Sep 2016 04:12:44 +0000

Over the weekend, I ordered some food from Postmates. After waiting for about two hours, I opened the app again to find out where the delivery was. Much to my surprise it was delivered – except not to me. I got frustrated. I wrote to Postmates customer support, and didn’t hear back from them for...

My article outlining the rise of the computational photography for The New Yorker prompted many reader to write and point out the camera phones were essentially a pre-iPhone phenomenon.

Why iPhone 7 Changes Camera Industry Forever

Fri, 09 Sep 2016 14:09:37 +0000

My latest for the New Yorker about the mainstreaming of what is generically known as computational photography. This to me is the start of a new phase in photography and what it means. Have a read & tell your friends. We are splintering what was the “camera” and its functionality—lens, sensors, and processing—into distinct parts, but,...
