    I hate Tagged!! 

    I have been getting these spam mails on behalf of some of my friends from Tagged Mail saying he/she has Tagged me! I have already unsubscribed from their service a few times but continue recieving such mails. 

    I really hate these services and am annoyed with friends who use the mail id so irresponsibly!!

      Annoying sons of bi*ches,… all of them. My sympathies with you.

      I know. I mean you have a separate email id you give to friends so that you dont get much spam on it and then they use it in forwards and such stupid websites. Immense anger arises!!

    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.

    Laughing so hard – no net acronym!! 

    Check out this website. Sure to waste loads of your valuable time everyday. Check the sample below.

    <Mak> Aimee, well that’s your opinion, and I have my opinion about you. I don’t bring my opinion up, so I’d love it if in return you’d do the same, if only for common courtesy 🙂
    <Aimee> I’d love to hear your opinion about me hon.
    <Aimee> Perhaps you could write a book?
    <Aimee> and name it “Things Aimee doesn’t care about, by Makat”
    <Mak> Chapter 1: Other people

    Scintillations – Oasis 2K6 

    I have believed that over the years the quality of the Oasis website – a starting point for other colleges – has gone from bad to worse.


    Though no expert at website design, I do have a few points to make about this year’s website. One important aspect of a good website is that it should be easy on the eyes of the viewer. Sadly, the website this year, falls very short on this standard. The colours used are garish and unpleasant. Black with pink. Yucks!! Seems like a webpage of those days when people experimented with geocities. Flashy and very odd. Light backgrounds and gentle colours are expected nowadays.

    Second. I do not yet get the BITSian fascination for flash and shockwave objects. Any page designed at BITS has to have a dash of embedded flash objects. Could someone please tell me why??

    Third and probably most importantly. Please do not copy and paste text from somewhere. “If you are going to BITS on an assignment, BITS will send you a complimentary car” (from the section on getting here.) I am sorry but I could not believe that this was written by an on-campus BITSian for Oasis website. As Google later revealed, the entire section has been lifted from the BITSAA website, without any attribution whatsoever. When did things become so bad? Could they not find a decent writer within the batches on campus? Come on you guys, before claiming the material as your own with that misused copyright symbol, did you check that BITSAA already has a copyright on it?

    A simple website, probably based on some blogging platform like WordPress, would have been recommended by me. Very professional and neat. But then, I am not at BITS and can only do so much.

    I have a wish to make here though. I wish that someone from EPC/HPC/Junta takes it on himself/herself or collaborates to get a blog going and provide real time posts from the scene as an when it happens.

      I do agree with you amit about your grievance on Oasis website. Compare our Oasis site with the mood indigo (IIT Bombay’s tech fest) site. 🙂


      I don’t say that the mood indigo site looks very good but comparatively it scores better. The very idea of having a website for our festivals is not to serve the purpose but just for name sake. Yeah! there existed a website when this festival happened. Things have been degraded. They need a break! (or change?)

      I, while at BITS tried to change stuff at Oasis (a fest really close to my heart). I attended ORCs, pre Oasis meetings, other dicussion forums, and even tried to raise the point in the election panel questions. But it seems people have shut themselves to new ideas. They do not want to change, and that sadly is when things go downhill.

      Chill goyal.. we all know about the great ORCs we had 😉
      let the guys do what they feel like. after all, we are the past.
      How have u been?

    • Goyal 10:45 on Thursday, November 2, 2006 Permalink | Reply

      Yeah man, those were the days. I though I should bring stuff to people’s notice. I even mailed the Prez on the plagiarism thingie. I think that is worse than a website that looks like a porn website!!!

      Anyways, I have been good. Right now at Evalueserve, Gurgaon where they are trying to kill me by making me work, but I escape everytime 😉

      Where are you nowadays?? ONGC??
