Right

How do we know we are right? How do we know that our history is not dubious? How difficult it is to not have an opinion? Can we not see this world as it is? Why do we have to fight to prove our superiority on account of caste, creed, color, race or money? How […]

Buzzwords

I have lived through a decade of tech hype. I started coding with LOGO. Much has changed since then. Every 2-3 years I get to hear new buzzwords: virtualization, IaaS, SaaS, PaaS, Containers, federated, Docker, Bitcoin, Blockchain, serverless.
