Recently i came across a video by Charlie Hoehn conducting a talk on the concept of "Free Work", this inspired me a lot and i hope it does the same for you. Enjoy.
It's been a while since i posted.
Recently i took part in a volunteer program with Go International to help setup MozCamp Asia 2011 event. This event was organized by Mozilla Corporation to bring together different communities who work and contribute to Mozilla-related projects.
As part of the volunteer program i got to attend some of the talks hosted by the conference and meet some wonderful people who in my opinion motivated me a lot. Some of the talks i had the honor to attend were:
Mozilla Developer Network: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/
Mozilla College Recruiting Program (For Students): http://college.stage.mozilla.com/blog/
If you are interested in participating in contributing to Mozilla projects, please visit their site at http://www.mozilla.org/contribute/ for more information on how you can do that.
PS: You don't have to be a programmer, you can help localize a lot of their products and so on.
Firstly let me start by saying that i've never been a fan of the iPhone. Until now atleast. Well, technically not the iPhone itself that im a fan of but a product made to be used by the iPhone.

Well, i suppose most Linux or unix based OS users have come across the term GNU/Linux and even got caught or started flame wars on this issue. I recently found this article with a chart showing really how much of GNU is in Linux.

For fans of the game "Angry Birds" this might be good news for you especially if you use google chrome or chromium as your web browser. The folks at Roxio made it possible to play an html5 version of this game on chrome/chromium on any OS.

A company in the UK has made a game where players have to commute to play it, it invo lves travelling from one part of London to another and points are collected through this. This sounds like an interesting type of interaction especially with games but is there a downside to it? More on this story from the BBC.
Here's an amazing example of what a person can do to bring positive change, enjoy.

I know i'm supposed to be doing my assignment but this is important too :D.
I won't write much, but i want to thank everyone who has been reading my blog and contributing to it. I would also like to thank Linus Torvalds for his inspiration that he gives to many including me. Thanks to the good fellows at the Linux Foundation. And to wish Linux and anyone who uses Linux a happy 20th Birthday.
For those who might be a bit confused, maybe this milestone chart can give you a clearer idea:
