    2. ClocksColdplay
    3. Calvin & Hobbes
    4. Snap of STAR-PLUS at Indijoes (a lovely restaurant on Airport Road) in Bangalore just before the Rehman concert (which is another amazing story)
    5. Something there is that doesn’t love a wall – Akanksha
    6. Hugh Macleod
    7. IfRudyard Kipling
    8. DaffodilsWilliam Wordsworth

    Web2.0 and Manifestos 

    Check out the Devil’s Dictionary and it’s definition of Web2.0. Pretty hilarious stuff out there. Particularly liked the definition of e-mail.

    A method of electronic communication, primarily used to inform you that your penis is too small.

    Also came across this collection of manifestos and other writings on entrepreneurship on the web at ChangeThis. This is what they say about themselves.

    ChangeThis is creating a new kind of media. A form of media that uses existing tools (like PDFs, blogs and the web) to challenge the way ideas are created and spread.  

    Stuff by people like Hugh MacLeod, of Gaping Void fame, marketing guru Seth Godin, and Guy Kawasaki, a former Apple evangelist and entrepreneur par excellence. Damn nice stuff to read up there. I suggest you sure pay a visit.

    Perspective 

    Confused points to this quote from Stanley Kubrick on Schindler’s List.

    “Think that was about the Holocaust? That was about success, wasn’t it? The Holocaust is about six million people who get killed. ‘Schindler’s List’ was about six hundred people who don’t.”

    This is from a review of the movie WTC by Roger Ebert. Catastrope does bring out the best and at times the worst in people.
