Love Drive Thru !

Late in the night......
Working on a preso....
Sick of Ramen noodles..
No groceries...

Drive Thru is my saviour.
Man *IS* a Social Animal !

Feels great ! I just talked to a great bud of mine from school, we were all real homies. but I've been a jerk about not keeping in touch, and just realized that it gave me so much happiness when I caught up with him, proves the *title* and that is the right way to go.

Screw your hassles in life, get back to buddies, family.
Shucks ! What's my PURPOSE ?

Coming back from work,I think everyday, what have i accomplished, made some more money, maybe a breakthrough, but seriously what?

Sometime the thought really bogs you down, and you feel like reading the book "Purpose Driven Life?" ,but frankly no book or website or any human being can tell you your purpose in life, it has to be discovered, and again discovered in the "circumstance" that you are in.

"Hey, why the hell can I not think like Bill Gates !", bogs me down like crazy, but he is different and has a different purpose in life, question is whether I am making an impact in the "circumstance" that I am , and taking satisfaction with it. But then, this whole "political" thing, competition, survival of the fittest. Who is measuring this impact ? my Boss? my family?

Its the same game as with the GPA, the guy with a 4.0 is a whizkid, no matter if he is a sucks in terms of *getting laid*, but society has set this benchmark, at workplace companies set these performance evaluation systems, schools set GPAs..really at the end of the are moving from one "system" to another between these benchmarks. However, its a eye opener that the benchmark should not be borrowed from the system, it should be your own, if it aligns with the great..but if not, tune it to the point where there is an equilibrium and you are not totally surrendering to the system.

Anyways, venting out is another great exercise, which I just did, so thanks for bearing with me :)

Grab Technology by the Horns !

Have we thought of how much technology has impacted our lives, especially the internet. The capitalists of the world are churning new products everyday to make our lives "simpler", "efficient", but is technology really making our lives simpler !

Consider the internet, and the simplicity that it offers
- Need a PC
- Have PC..yeah..but need a faster PC
- Need a Connection
- Have a Connection ..yeah..but need a faster connection
- Need a Browser
- Have a Browser..yeah..but need a more secure browser

I never came across such a definition of simplicity before.

In terms of evolution of society, dating, socializing, everything is cyber now including cyber-sex, we are not far away from "cyber-copulation"

Just what I read the other day, about the *demise* of *brainstorming* in idea factory places like coffee shops or airports with people glued to their own cyber space.

This stuff is very thought provoking, the same trends exist in offices and workplaces as well, lesser face-to-face and more and more online collaboration/telecommute. Its funny though, that I know the guy sitting next to me in a coffee shop less intimately than another guy on a *blog* who is thousand miles away and anonymous.Really, I am not sure how much thought is being put into such social ramifications of the tech revolution. Bottomline , we have to draw a line somewhere, as to how much we want *tech* to drive our habits, everything cannot be changed with the excuse of *convenience*.
