Back to blogging

May 8, 2013

Hi all, I am thinking of blogging more often. My background has been updated on all angles of software development and startups since the last time I blogged. So from here on, I plan to blog on all things related to software, startups and stuff. Looking forward to filling you in.

I’ve found Twitter to closely fit my criteria of blogging; it feels like I am naturally limited to 140 words.

Twine is well and alive

September 16, 2008

I have been using Twine for a while now and I dig the fact that it allows me to so easily organize the contents that I am interested in from the Web. Twine users claim that it is an Interest Network on top of a Social Network. It helps in resolving the Information Overload problem, but with capabilities more than online bookmarking sites like Delicious. It actually extracts the content from webpages, auto-generates tags into different categories using NLP (Natural Language Processing) techniques and gives you a capability to connect to other Twiners like you do in Facebook.  I like the concept and have been using it thoroughly.

The entire site is built on top of the Semantic Web infrastructure and they are one of the pioneers in this realm of emerging web technologies -find me at http://www.twine.com/user/shamod.

Check out this link to watch a few videos on Holographic Telepresence. It is mind-boggling.

I don’t think I have ever watched a video so entertaining when blended with a fairly serious topic – “how our educational system is killing creativity?” I was absolutely blown away by Sir Ken Robinson.

Check out his video in a link here from TED – here.
