Someone said, on the 21st of June 2004:

“Not exactly a marketing merchant of inspiration like Po, but Steven Levy may interest you…”

Very curious to know who you are, especially since it appears that you read Po Bronson AND Steven Levy. Steven Levy reports and writes quite a lot on Apple and the Macintosh, so have been reading his stuff for a long time. Haven’t read Hackers: Heroes of the Computer Revolution” though. Will try to get hold of it. Am reading “Weaving the Web” by Tim Berners Lee these days. Doug Coupland is fun also – coined the phrase “Generation X” way back in 1992 …

Anyway, hope you’ll come back again and talk about what you’re reading.

Turned 30
Watched Monster
Marvelled at Blast!
Wished Po Bronson would write another book
Thought about DeathRow, killing in self-defence, and “justice”
Slept, but not very peacefully

It’s getting more and more like June 2003. Sitting at Unilever Dubai, in Jebel Ali. It’s 10:30 p.m., everyone’s gone home except the security guards – we’re sustaining ourselves with Digestive biscuits and crunchy red apples.

Kudos to the folks who have developed eMessenger – it’s a web-based hack of MSN Messenger and works without plug-ins and Java. The MSN port appears to be blocked at Unilever Arabia and this little gem, eMessenger has given us back our connectivity to the mothership. XTREME joy.

Had a divine Cafe Borgia at Barista two nights ago – gorgeous orange flavour and exotic whipped cream. Reminded me of all the trips to Barista espresso bars in Delhi. The Barista franchise has been sold to some Italian company :-(
