My favorite radio show…

Why am I not bloggin regularly? There is a reason will let u know later…

One of my favorite programs on radio is listening to story corp from NPR. This is an amazing piece which comes everyday morning when I drive to office. Story corp is a project where mobile recording van travels around US and people can record there own stories. Real life stories. It is amazing.

Today I heard a story by Lourdes Cereno Markley she was born in Phillipines and came to US for her education in 60s. It was difficult to get visa at that time. She had already got her admission. So she wrote a letter to President JFK. In 4 days she got a call from US embasssy and she got the visa. Believe me it was amazing to hear from her. If you are interested you can listen to some of the stories on NPR.org or listen to this specific one

Hire Joe…

Here is a post by Joe Gregorio. He is author of Atom Publishing protocol and an amazing person to work with. I have been working with Joe for past 1 year and trust me if I had an option I would hire him in a second. But I don’t have that option so anyone listening if you really want a gem in ur company talk to Joe before someone else hires him..

Debt I will have to live with…

Last week I had to travel to Boston for MS Teched. I had a talk on Innovation in RFID along with Anush. More details on that later. But I took 5:30AM flight from Raleigh and reached Boston around 9:00AM. I went to the rental counter and picked up my Car. While talking to the lady at the counter I realized I had to pay a toll for some bridge in Boston to reach the Convention center. The Toll was 3.00$. 3.00$… who carries that much money… I had just 2:00$ in my pocket..:(:(

Problem was to get anywhere in Boston you had to take this bridge.. The lady at the rental counter gave me 1$. That was so nice of her. I was going to return the money when I return the car. Next day I had return flight at 5:30AM. So I reached the rental office around 4:00AM. But problem was I only had 20$ Bill and the lady who lend me money was not around. I did not know what to do.. I tried to see if anyone had change for 20 but noone did and when I tried to leave 20$ at the counter the person at counter did not take it.

I could not even say sorry to the person who lend me a $. I have a debt and I am not sure how I will pay it back. The weight of this debt is more than xxxxx$ of debt I have. I hope god gives me an oppurtunity to pay it back someday.:(
