Running through quicksand

MegaCOrp moves slooooooooooowwwwwwly. After years working as an independent, working at MegaCorp is like running through quicksand. Paul Graham was right. Large Companies are incapable of moving fast (and thus, incapable of certain kinds of innovation).

Moshe's Tears

I am a fairly even tempered person, but seeing the pictures of little Moshe calling for his mother, (killed by the sick Islamist f***s who attacked Mumbai) caused me to feel an unaccustomed emotion - rage.

I love children, (and children love me - when I travel in a train for example, any kids around, generally end up playing with "Ravi Uncle" throughout the journey) and someone who makes children orphans to make some kind of ideological point, should just be stood against the nearest wall and shot.

Recession? What recession?

These days, there is a lot of gloom and doom about the recession in the papers. I don't see any evidence of this "on the ground". Demand for good engineers is very high, in Bangalore and in the United States. I have more job offers than I can shake a stick at.

Every company I know is desperate for good developers, though they've slowed or stopped the "hire any warm body you can lay your hands on" type efforts.

I must be missing something.
