glassdog interviews kottke
Glassdog: Jason, what the fuck?
Jason Kottke: First of all, I’d like to thank Lance for this opportunity and such a nuanced and interesting first question.
Well, the fuck is that I wasn’t enjoying my professional life as much as I used to and it was putting a real damper on the rest of my life. I decided that if it was possible to change that and start doing something I love, I should go ahead and try to do that.
Read the whole thing.

The (official) buzz
A must syndicate for everyone on blogger. Everyone who cares anyway. I tend to generalise a tad. Forgive me.
Notice the mention of Google on the blog's banner though. Talk about gradual morphing of identity.

Blogger comments stick
While comments show up on post pages, the comment-post screen is out of bounds for any one who tries. My apologies to everyone who awaits my comments.
PJ of my own!
"You'll pay for this Captain Planet!"
ROTFL at my own PJ!

What do I do...
Things are pretty much officially out now. I am not getting back at any one person. I just think that some one who represents a major publication (no matter how niche the readership) should have enough insight to be able to stay clear of generalisations. I guess I might be being vicious here. Don't take any thing here too seriously if you think I am being unduly aggressive.
So, here's the funny part. Apparently, I was too geeky for one of India's leading Tech Mags! That's something to pride myself on. Don't you think? Just joking. In reality, it was a long standing dream/wish/whatever of mine to get to work for this particular publication.
Dreams don't die. They just go to that big recycle bin in the sky. It is only a matter of time that I restore the file into its rightful folder.
BTW, what file extension may dreams have? .drm ???
Am down I agree, but definitely not out. Am I ever? But then, you wouldn't know, would you?

Something coming - watch out!

Note: My blogs I read link on the sidebar will now link to the site above. Will modify it soon. No time now. Also, my livejournal is getting more frequently updated than this blog can possibly be. Sorry about that. Keep reading the livejournal.

Update: Interview over. Went well.

Took the test
Keeping my fingers crossed and hope I have the opportunity to get past this level. If they like what I wrote in the test, I will get an interview call and then... you know the drill.

DoodleBoard to become Members' Only Service
Costs are running very high, and our signups are by hundreds daily. Our sevice provider has informed us of the high usage of the DoodleBoard service and we have no choice but to act to resolve this. As a result, we regret to inform all our Basic Users that DoodleBoard will no longer be able to provide the service free. Enhanced members will continue to enjoy DoodleBoard service with no service disruption.
I hate it when they do this. Some time back mBlog.com did this. Unprofessional doesn't begin to describe it. Hope everyone finds chat elsewhere. Amen!
My latest discovery: Samit Basu has a blog! Predictable but enviable URL! He even commented on my livejournal. I like the man. No hang-ups. The sequel to Simoquin Prophecies is going to be out this November, says he. Drool all!
