Way to go TechLahore – I salute you!

TechLahore, in his latest post, (yes yes I know who he is … no I am not telling)😉 talks about the need to pull up our sleeves and actually DO something instead of continuing with the Babu culture that we have inherited from our colonial days.

He asks only 3 things of us:

1. Build something

2. Tell him about our projects

3. Encourage a child to invent, build, assemble, conjure and concoct.

Create a generation of inventors and innovators. No doubt we already have some. But we need many many more. Do go read the detailed post and see why I am so bowled over by his suggestions.

    Please check out http://www.skid.org.in. Dr Arun Mehta has set this up and seeded it with some work from his graduate students, based on actual experience with the needs of persons with different ability sets. Totally diy in concept, it is a great opportunity for anyone who thinks “why can’t I do that using my computer?”.

    The important thing is the site represents ongoing work, and is constantly growing, with fresh modules welcome (using Ruby on Rails, the versatile programming tool for web apps) from all. We hope that people the world over will join in and make it useful to as many people as possible. For many people, the site is the only way they can begin to enjoy – affordably! – using computers for work and play.

    On the topic of “Doing Things”. Do read the flashy handbook by Tom Peters on “Talent” … it belongs to his essentials series

    Really good to lift you up and get going!!
