Views of Venice (with Photos)

Mon, 15 Jan 2018 16:21:53 +0000

It has been remarkably quiet on the home front — for a good reason. I went to Venice to make some photos and participate in a photo workshop with one of my favorite photographers, Jonathan Chritchley. The workshop perfectly overlapped with the CES 2018 show. And since everyone was busy with the show and very...

Continuous rain, endless email and conference calls later, I am finally done for the day. It is a bummer that I didn’t get a chance to sit and write today. On a more upbeat note, it is Friday and hence start of the weekend. I look forward to finishing Fire and Fury and then get...

The Internet of Love

Wed, 03 Jan 2018 20:58:01 +0000

These days, Internet in general, and specifically social media, is taking a lashing worse than an offender in a boarding school. Thanks to the free for all nature of the social web, anyone can say, do, or fabricate anything and get away it. You don’t even need to have a hand on the nuclear button....

Our Dystopian Now

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 23:08:21 +0000

Most of us often fear what we can’t see, understand or contextualize. The unknown is the biggest devil of them all. Throughout history we have had to contend with this — solar eclipses, epileptic fits and falling asteroids — they all became part of the fictional fear factor, that has plagued humanity. And perhaps that...

Goodbye 2017! Hello 2018!

Tue, 02 Jan 2018 05:01:33 +0000

I hope you had a nice year-end break and are getting ready for the new year. All I want for the new year is all of us to do one positive thing every day — a positive email, an encouraging text message, a tweet of optimism or just a smile. It is not that hard...

Books I Love: 2017 edition

Sat, 30 Dec 2017 03:23:01 +0000

These are my picks for the year, which admittedly was light on reading on my part. I spent way too much time wandering around with my camera and didn’t pick up the books often enough. I bought about 27 books and I finished sixteen. Rest were pretty average and some were plain rubbish. I was...

“You have to trust in something”

Thu, 28 Dec 2017 06:00:35 +0000

A decade ago, an event happened that changed my life. Some of you old friends and readershave followed the progressreports. But, honestly, it would take a full ten years for me to understand the impact and outcome of that one event. Life in many ways is like a paint by numbers book, where you can...

Wishing you all a very Merry Christmas. Have a great day with your family and friends!

Some thoughts on Spotify and Muzak 2.0

Sat, 23 Dec 2017 22:53:48 +0000

A few days ago, I read this long essay (The Problem with Muzak) by Liz Pelly in The Baffler, which took a critical look at Spotify and the growing power it has come to wield in the music industry. It is an astute article, one you aren’t likely to read in the bubble of popular...
