Strange Post

So what is strange about this post you might ask. Well i am using a web2.0 browser called Flock to make this post.Cool ain't it ? It uses firefox's codebase but adds quite a lot of addons like RSS, Blogs etc.For a developer preview the browser is pretty stable !
And as i said previously weather is always a great leveller. The hyped up and moronic bangaloreans claimed that only bombay cannot withstand 90cm of rain but bangalore being on top of a hill can withstand anything ! Ah it took just 9cm of rain to debunk all those myths. So isn't it a matter of shame that a city on top of a hill has most of its major highways flooded ? The road that leads to the so called IT high technology offices is still under waist deep water. Isn't it time that the administration made some serious effort to request companies to stop investing and upgrade the infrastructure to a world class level ? These are the fruits which the current administration must bear because a so-called "India's Best Chief minister" S.M.Krishna fought an egoistic war with a neighbouring state chief minister to attract investment, without taking into account whether the city can withstand it or not ? And for all those morons who still claim that bangalore has terrific weather think again. There is no point in being marooned like this when all it took was just 9cm of rain !
The ongoing tussle between Deve Gowda and Infosys is taking some real strange turns. However at a personal level i think there is nothing wrong in what Deve Gowda is trying to point out. The software coolies and sweat shop idiots who have already lost their thiking abilities due to the moronic nature of their work, need to think and then respond. They should not blindly come to the support of Narayana Murthy.
A government exists for the purpose of the entire state and it must look after the problems that are being faced all over the state. It does not need buisnessmen with their own intrests to dictate it as to how it should be run. The software industry came about without government interference. There is nothing wrong in demanding good roads and better infrastructure. But there is always a way to do that. Tiruppur makes the equivalent of what software earns by exports, but aren't they having their problems highlighted in a proper manner ? Are they threatening and trying to arm twist the government ? The unnecessary media hype is in part a major reason for such needless publicity.Deve Gowda is pretty right in saying that the land deals must be probed.

    That was only USP bangalore ever had, until this rain happened.

    Also expecting a comparison between firefox and flock. Do they support extensions like GMAIL, bloglines,web developer tools, ajax yahoo mail preview,etc???

    smyta : well you do know the inspiration :-)

    eswar : flock does seem to support a lot of web2.0 particularly ajax.bloglines is in the pipeline.i didn't get much time to fiddle with it but from whatever i see first and foremost the memory consumption has gone down drastically, while providing the same functinalities as firefox.secondly most of the extensions are udnerway.so probably when flock matures we can expect some real kickass features.
    but flock does impress me with blogging ability without going to blogger.com

    demanding is fine, the point is contributing towards that also, software doesnt want to be taxes. Infy pays a measly 300crs as tax, on a revenue of 6800crs. if the govt wishes to improve inrastructure, these guys need to pay a whole lot more tax. and these guys will contribute only towards infrastructure which directly benefits them, INFY agreed to pay 100crs towards the hosur overbridge road, but not towards other development in blore.

    and i dont c why the government of india shud subsidise citi corp of abn amro (subsidies given to IT cos are passed onto their customers) IT also lacks the backward linkages which are associated with any industry.

    So now Gowda calls Non Kannadiga's as others ... Since when did karnataka become a state of USA ??

    What we have is a Government which does not perform or deliver. Not comparing with any developed or developing countries .. in general we have parasites governing us .

    India has developed so far only due to individuals performing for themselves and very little accidental inputs from Government. We should start focussing on that rather than target our energies against people like Narayanamurthy either bcos we did not get a job there or did not get enuf from the job we got there.
