Digital assemblage. Made from found stuff….

Stefan Sagmeister’s list

Stefan Sagmeister’s list: Things I have learned in my life so far.

  • Complaining is silly. Either act or forget.
  • Thinking life will be better in the future is stupid. I have to live now.
  • Being not truthful works against me.
  • Helping other people helps me.
  • Organizing a charity group is surprisingly easy.
  • Everything I do always comes back to me.
  • Drugs feel great in the beginning and become a drag later on.
  • Over time I get used to everything and start taking it for granted.
  • Money does not make me happy.
  • Traveling alone is helpful for a new perspective on life.
  • Assuming is stifling.
  • Keeping a diary supports my personal development.
  • Trying to look good limits my life.
  • Worrying solves nothing.
  • Material luxuries are best enjoyed in small doses.
  • Having guts always works out for me.


New Books

Last week, I went to buy Tamil Pulp Fiction. instead I ended buying these three books.

The third book is collection of digital assemblage. Pure art for visual treat and I was surprised as it was priced pretty offerdable at Rs 200. I strongly suggest every one should read Fooled by Randomness and Black Swan.


I don't know if you follow the scientific journals and news or not.
But lately there has been talk about how they are generating light
pulses who's length is measured in 'attoseconds'.

So how long is an attosecond? It is 1/1000 of a femtosecond. How long
is a femtosecond? A femtosecond is one millionth of one billioth of a
second. Or in scientific notation, a femtosecond is 1*10^-15 (1E-15),
and thus, an attosecond is 1*10^-18 (1E-18). Or for short (pardon the
pun), an attosecond is an insignificant amount of time.

Does this mean when your boss gives you an attoboy, they are giving
you an insignificant amount of praise?

Tamil Pulp Fiction

Tamil Pulp Fiction

Tamil Pulp Fiction

I never regretted the fact that it was impossible for me read Tamil in much fluent and faster pace. Indraikum, nan elzhthu kooti than padipane. But there is one occasion in which I really regret that I unable to read fluently in Tamil. That is when I see all those colorful novels hanging on the stalls in tea shops, bus stand. The cover art of those books are so inviting and mesmersing.

This month’s Outlook nano had two stories from the “Tamil Pulp Fiction”. Rajesh Kumar’s Idhaya 2020 and Suba’s Hurricane Vaij.

Extract from the introduction to Rajesh Kumar.

“The selection of virtually any newsstand in Tamil nadu, will include several of his books; the back covers typically feature a ghostly, haloed image of author’s head, complete with a trademark asymmetrical hairstyle and oversize sunglasses”

So, true. Every one loved Rajesh Kumar. ( I could not find that wonderful photo on the net 😐 )

I am going to buy this book. Wish this book was offerdable just like those original tamil novels.
