Been long, really long since this page saw some action. Though this blog started in 2005, in 2008, I migrated to a hosted Wordpress and continued thereafter. As silly luck would have it, I missed a renewal deadline and not just lost the domain, but the entire content as well. All this while I earnestly hoped that some point I was wise enough to take a backup, but quite frankly, have had no luck locating it on my computers. The world has meanwhile changed significantly. At first technology caused huge explosion of information. Later, we went after tools that helped us make sense of the humongous mass of information generated in the previous waves, for it was not enough to just collect information and make sense of it as humans. As of now, we are struggling to find ways to provide contextual information - i.e,. information in the right measure at the right time through the right device or means.Things are exciting enough to again write about. Lets see how how we can take it forward.
