It's a slow economy- Let's talk about handshakes & picking up chicks

You know it's a rough economy when Guy Kawasaki is tweeting about picking up chicks and TechCrunch is blogging about handshakes & social etiquette and beating up dead horses.

But shouldn't these guys be talking about my friend's company that just got funded to do DNA computation in the cloud - or something like that?

Your Conscience is Your Compiler!

Your Conscience is Your Compiler! The following is the exact transcript of an IM chat about "Conscience" I had with a friend:

Friend: I follow my instincts.

Me: Animals follow instincts - humans follow their conscience. It's the only God I know. Your conscience always tells you what's right or wrong.

Friend: No murali, I disagree. How do you define what's right?

Me: Your conscience tells you- always. If you do something you believe is wrong, you'll feel guilty. If you don't believe it's wrong, you won't feel guilty

Friend: Yeah, but why do you do things?

Me: Because we are human.

Friend: No, it's because we want to survive.

Me: It takes a lot of character to always obey your conscience, a lot of strength.We survive either way. But if you and your conscience are on good terms, you have unshakeable self-belief.

Friend: Yeah

Me: And you'll care about little things like pride, self-respect, principles, character, reputation...because they are…

My Experience (a kid's poem)

Here's a poem I wrote when I was in 8th grade in school

My Experience

Once upon a time, I had a little donkey
Whom I very lovingly, used to call Pinky
But in fact, he was very brown
And making a fine pair, I looked like a clown

Whatever we looked like, that does not matter
My story begins, as I grew fatter
Allow me to tell you, for your information
At that time, was I, a very poor washerman

One day, on Pinky, I loaded a huge clothes bunch
And on the top I settled, with my heavy paunch
Due to the mighty weight, his bones crunched
And the next minute, into the air I was launched

As I fell on earth, I started groans and moans
Nevertheless, the next thing I did was to check my bones
My limbs ached, and I felt very sick
Later on, I learned that the cause was Pinky's kick

After that experience so dim
I decided to become slim
And hence I advise you, never to become plump
For you too, as me, may receive many a bump!
