Steve wanna meet Mr. President

Now I always knew that a strong co-relation exists between showing "gorked out" symptoms(read it as temporary mental impairment) and lots of Oracle and PL/SQL programming. Steve Feuerstein is all set to become "statistics" and is out to prove that. All of a sudden, one fine day, probably one of THE BEST Oracle programmer wakes up and decides to meet the President, to take his measure as a man and human being. yikes!!!(I told you about the co-relation). It does not stop there. He is also blogging about it. You can catch all the meet-the-president adventure of Steve here.

The title of the blog says "I encourage others to follow my path and request such a meeting!". For a sec, it sounded like a awesome and Kalam....Damn! that's when I decided to prepone my vacation. Looks like I need rest.

A more sensible blog from the master can be found here.

PS -
No offence meant to Steve, but I really dont get it..the meeting stuff.

Google Tech talks..

Probably some of the best technology talks happen at Google and the best part is they are available for all of us to see..I came across one such called "Leveraging India As India Stands Up" by Prof. Ashok Jhunjhunwala of IITM.. real cool stuff. I think this is a must watch.
