Best Oasis Speech..

.. ever was delivered by Sunit Rikhi during the Oasis 2k7 inaug. It is brilliant. I am just quoting some lines below.

Hur vartmaan pal mein apna ateet dhoondta hoon
Tum subke khoobsoorat chehroan mein, mein apna chehra doondhta hoon

You can download the entire speech below [Word Doc].

Movies Review

Shoot ‘em Up

Worst movie in my memory. Even Yaadein was better. The 7.5 rating on IMDB is a joke and I personally think that it does not even deserve a 2!

Some brilliant scenes –

  • Kills a villain by stabbing in the eye with a carrot. Yes, you read that right, a carrot.
  • Hurts 4 people by two bullets, in a trick that would make even Rajni cringe!

Sparks will fly at night!

Formula 1 under lights in Singapore next year. Awezome!

Also, Valencia gets to host the European Grand Prix.

Blogging Tech

Kicking some serious troll ass!

Jonathan Schwartz, my favourite CEO blogger, goes out and kicks some serious NetApp ass here.

So later this week, we’re going to use our defensive portfolio to respond to Network Appliance, filing a comprehensive reciprocal suit. As a part of this suit, we are requesting a permanent injunction to remove all of their filer products from the marketplace, and are examining the original NFS license – on which Network Appliance was started. By opting to litigate vs. innovate, they are disrupting their customers and employees across the world.

In addition to seeking the removal of their products from the marketplace, we will be going after sizable monetary damages. And I am committing that Sun will donate half of those proceeds to the leading institutions promoting free software and patent reform (in specific, The Software Freedom Law Center and the Peer to Patent initiative), and to the legal defense of free software innovators.

To be fair, NetApp says Sun sued first and they responded. But what I like about the whole saga is the intelligent use of his blog by JS. He manages to convince you that the are all good and NetApps all evil.

Go Jonathan. You rock boy!
