Another year has gone by- Good Riddance

I used to laugh when people used to say "Good Riddance" to a year gone by, but now I can very well understand, what and why they meant for it.

Not too much to write about what happened in past year (2011), but the biggest and only achievement is that I am still fighting, and have not given up, inspite of all odds, and on the way to the goal.

Almost everything has been a disappointment, both preofessionally and personally.

Only good thing, I got the MVP built finally,took it to the market, and successfully tested it in the market.

I hope that coming months and days are better, in that respect.

So, 2011 has been nothing for me but a "Good Riddance".

The Internet Dependency...

Off-late there has been a lot of hue-and-cry regarding the freedom of speech, which as of now is mainly concentrated towards the internet based tool, like Twitter and Facebook.

It has been proved in this year what a big change medium these tools can be.

Common man who has been long opressed not only where the dictators are there but even in a democaratic country like, India.

I am a big supporter for anyone who fights for the freedom of speech and tweeted a lot against Mr. Kapil Sibal's plan to censor internet recently.

While all this has been good, I have found myself to be  a lot dependent on internet, for everything.

Be it communication, news, knowledge, and you can name n number of things.

And suddenly this dependancy has led to a lot of clutter in my life, may be an over-load of everything which has been mentioned above.

Though I cant really quantify the extent of clutter, but it started affecting a lot of things, which I have been trying to do.

So, I have started a de-cluttering proc…

Some coverage in national press

My Twitter Handle got featured on the front-page of Delhi Times on 7th Dec 2011 and on Pune Times on 8th Dec 2011.

It was all because of the outrage I expressed through tweets, regarding Mr.Kapil Sibal's endeavour to censor internet in India.

My Twitter handle is @ISayChaps_ .

Look at the last tweet on the LHS of the tweet display column.

Since it got featured on the two editions of the Times, I presume that it happened on others too, but I have not checked.

579 visits to the other blog in one day...

Holy Cow!!!
579 people read my blog in a single day.


They followed this post of mine which I wrote on deleting my Facebook account, written on the other blog. I posted the link on Hacker News and the stats just sky-rocketed.


I was thinking like may be 50-60 people would have read this, as my "Karma Points" on Hacker News increased from "3" to "8" only.


But, this is a big big pleasant shock.


Thank You All...

Karma Points on Hacker News

Yesterday, increased my "Karma Points"  on Hacker News from "3" to "8".
Thats a long leap in one day as far as I am concerned.


While your Klout Score can measure your social efficacy, for a Startup guy or a hacker , all it matters is the Hacker News "Karma Point".


Mine is pea-nuts compared to some guys who make 50 times of mine in a single day.


But working on it, I am on it...

On Hacker News...

Image
Every dog has its day, but I had my minutes.
Yesterday for about half hour, I was on main Hacker News due to the article about Facebook I wrote on my other blog.


Look at the little orange asterisk on the left side at the item number 43.
