What is Design

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 16:09:05 +0000

Apple has received (I think unwarranted) criticism for its iPhone 7 design from technology reviewers. I disagree with them and in my latest piece for The New Yorker, I explain what is good iconic design, what matters and how should we think about design in the connected age.

In Memoriam, Riccardo Bestetti

Wed, 19 Oct 2016 15:41:00 +0000

Riccardo Bestetti, a premier artisan and a legendary shoemaker passed away earlier this week due to a lung related ailment. He leaves behind a wife and a young son. I am deeply saddened by the news and this loss. As a patron of artisanal shoe making, one gets to know the artists and artisans quite...

Last evening I shared a link from Wired magazine about the passing of Dennis Ritchie, an influential and iconic figure in the world of software and computing. The link got retweeted and re-shares many times including by Google CEO Sundar Pichai. The only problem with me sharing that link was was that Ritchie, whose contributions...

Instagram, Snapchat & how my love for photos has changed!

Thu, 06 Oct 2016 21:37:21 +0000

Kevin Abosch, a photographer and a creative artist friend of mine happened to be in New York, just like me. In between our heavily packed schedules, we met for a quick coffee and caught up with each other’s lives. And then we ended up talking about photography and what it means and what it should...

Big Sur to Pittsburgh to Big Apple: What a week!

Wed, 05 Oct 2016 18:24:01 +0000

It has been quite a whirlwind of a week. Last weekend I was in Big Sur, celebrating (and officiating) the wedding of my dear friend Steve Jang and his lovely bride, Margaret DesGaines. It also meant an opportunity to enjoy the rugged beauty of Big Sur and the California coastline. A week later, I was...

Introducing, Picocast 

Tue, 04 Oct 2016 09:40:54 +0000

I got to podcasting early – did one for over a year and stopped – not quite sure why. I suspect it was because I hate being tied into a routine. Fast forward ten years and I am ready to take on podcasting again. My new podcast effort is called “Picocast” to accompany my interview...

A wise man once told me that I shouldn’t worry about banking the money. Instead, he said, bank people for in the end they will truly enrich your life. It was great advice and I have followed it to the tee. It was brought home to me yesterday with all the birthday messages and all...

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...

Video Streaming! CDN! Sure webRTC can do that!

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 20:34:43 +0000

Peer5 is built on WebRTC, a real-time communication protocol from Google that’s part of HTML5, meaning support for Peer5’s technology is built into every version of Chrome, Opera, Edge, Firefox, and more. Apple’s building it into Safari. Google Hangouts is based on it. Peer5, an Israel-based server-less CDN company, is going to be helping DailyMotion in...

Wed, 21 Sep 2016 20:14:59 +0000

Ben Clymer, founder of watch site, Hodinkee has listed 12 mistakes new watch collectors make and why one needs to avoid them. As a watch guy, I can tell you I have made some of those mistakes. These days I like to support, small and independent watch makers.
