Bits and Pieces

Bala points to a blog entry by Chakra Yadavalli, that doubts Google's claim for innovation. Product in question is, Google Maps, that shares features with an earlier-released Swiss Map search. I have no clue about the Javascript similarities, but if "draggable map" alone is a pointer, think we have too little to conclude. Keyhole, that Google purchased, had infact draggable results. So inspiration could have been from within. | sample Indian Embassy

On a different note, efforts to develop sub-$100 laptops targeting school kids was also pointed to by the same blogger. This is exciting news.

I kinda have started thinking we are focussing so much on IT that focus on non-IT based infra is getting to be lesser and lesser. Is this good ?

Dont you think, it only seems so.

Influence of IT is immediate and hence noticeable. Do you have any particular instance in mind?

If a pixel were to see and interpret things as I do, and should it express, with a dose of my thoughts and afterthoughts; the flavor of such a talk should be close to one that you find on this page. And yes, cricket being my favorite sport, dont be surprised to find one too many related terms. Pad up is one such!
