@sourima7 Ooh. Musings from the wild?
Step out ye people of Delhi and enjoy this splendid morning.
@rethas Hope you meant metered bills that drivers actually honour and don’t demand a premium on. That would really be something in Chennai.
@rethas How’re they different from the Horror Autos of Chennai?
@rashmiswamy Was. Yeh Jawani Hai Deewani. Involuntarily.
Gentleman next to me asked to be sure the movie hadn’t begun. Have ads become that ubiquitous?
@ap00rv Soon you’ll wish you felt nothing.
@rungtaakki Yup, read that.
@keeperofthekeys Take friends along, make budday double awesome.
@keeperofthekeys Where at?
Two fantastic new albums for June: Lootera by Amit Trivedi and Raanjhana by A.R. Rahman.
@rasagy True true.
“I’ve realized that the more I learn, the more I realize I have to learn…
@sourima7 Nice. Go have fun!
@sourima7 It did. It totally did. So glad I did the trek.
@3_Sided_Coin Vacationing. Will hopefully be out of reach for the next 3 days.
Off to Dodital. brb
@priyanka87 Will do. Thanks for the heads up!
TIL: Ustad Zakir Hussain composed the music for Mr. and Mrs. Iyer.
@surdattack But fabulous work with the search and results otherwise! ‘Calendar’ finally has the prominence it deserves.
@jitendravyas 1 room in the 3BHK, not the entire house.
@wildiris Kuremal’s fruit kulfis from Chawari Bazaar.
@_karan बिलकुल श्रीमान, बिलकुल देखने लायक ।
@_karan आपने उनकी पहली फिल्म ‘उडान’ देखी है या नहीं ?
Latest from Trivedi’s infectious dept. of “spontaneous jholampatti” like Motumaster & Chakkar Ghumyo:
Vikramaditya Motwane sure knows how to pull them heartstrings.
Became an ever bigger fan of @turmericdesign after visiting the Smoke House Deli at Hauz-e-Khas earlier tonight.
@BBlessy Back from the city that leads to Mahabalipuram? Interested in a Vasant Kunj house?
@rasagy Absolutely! I’ll give you a call tomorrow and we’ll fix a convenient time.
@rasagy Back in Delhi?
Anyone interested in an ice-cream tour, tomorrow at 5pm?
@xAbhishek … and the quality of those calling the shots. An anti-pattern, if there ever was one.
@purisubzi Fosters : Australian Beer :: Sagar Ratna : South Indian breakfasts
Basically, a really unfortunate ambassador.
@souvikdg What time did you get your bus?
@zainabbawa Ha! इन्गलैन्ड का सैर कैसा चल रहा है?
@zainabbawa Here are a few more: …aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!
That time of the year when @xAbhishek comes out with his cape and reveals that he is, indeed, a super hero.
@mesonprojekt :) Look forward to it! Always good when some longstanding practises are challenged.
@mesonprojekt Maybe you should write about this in more detail. Curious to see a more fleshed disproval of said philosophies.
@mesonprojekt Non-semantic not in the markup sense, but the why-a-break-between-2-paras-of-the-same-section sense.
@mesonprojekt Of course, and I’m not holding those against the design at all. Just mulling on the model of splitting ~5k > words in columns.
@mesonprojekt If, just like material, we consider interaction honesty on the web, the vertical scroll would be second only to the click.
@GVRV Sweet. What will you be speaking about?
@pricelessjunk There’a a Yeshwantpur-Howrah express that leaves Bangalore at night & reaches KGP in the wee hours. Taken that a few times.
@harisibrahimkv I was expecting you to finally reveal yourself as an undead.
@GnrlMxms Awesome school project?
Beautiful summer eve with the transiting @hasgeek team. The Lodi tombs—quite a sight at night, & the Nizamuddin qawwals—always a delight.
@keeperofthekeys By Toutatis!
@rasagy Get used to it, but don’t forget that it’s rarely just about being first.
@wildiris That movie is therapy.
@3_Sided_Coin Maybe, but if OS X showed menus on every double click & select, it’d definitely be “a nightmare for impulsive highlighters.”
@3_Sided_Coin Text selection on phones is rarely as direct an interaction as double clicking a mouse. Thus a lot more infrequent.
@nigelbabu Okay, it only appears when signed in.
Menus activated by text-selection (like the one on @Medium) are a nightmare for impulsive highlighters. Really hope it doesn’t catch on.
@jackerhack There was one that adopted us at Dharamkot and tagged along for 2+ hours, all the way to McLeoad Ganj. We’d named him Whisky.
@turmericdesign Earlier today I stood in as a guardian for a cousin in school. Now this. I’m definitely last generation. Yikes!
@turmericdesign Sometimes I miss exams purely for this reason.
@keeperofthekeys Kya baat! Is the photo online anywhere?
@sonix15 Great. Head down to Mahabalipuram via the East Cost Road if you have the time. Just an hour’s drive.
@wildiris Khajuraho / Hampi would be perfect but for the time of the year (read: heat). Best retreat to the hills / coast.
@zainabbawa Very well, thank you. How about you?
@SirLoondry फोन उठाइए, नम्बर घुमाइए !
@KeralaTourism Hope to go further inside on my next trip. The coast and the backwaters are calling!
@KeralaTourism Hey, thanks!
Best bit about working out of this co-working space: Red Mawkin’s jamming sessions from the room next door.
@pricelessjunk Make it happen, and maybe document / hunt for something along the way. Music, stories, food, tickets, characters… anything!
@_karan Yeah I thought of that. Then decided I didn’t want to think so hard on a Sunday morning. :)
Should ideally be whitelisting instead.
@_karan Script based.
@_karan Sorry, fixed. दुबारा नहीं होगा ।
@_RohitNag Wow. Snow not interfering then I trust?
@mesonprojekt Ah. Travel a bit, maybe? Give us a holler if you think we can do something together.
@mesonprojekt What lies ahead?
Death by mosquito repellants.
@xAbhishek I’m liking the sound of this. Elaborate?
@lut4rp Looks like I’ll be back by noon on Sunday, so both Sunday and Monday evenings are fine with me.
@lut4rp Something’s come up. Won’t be in the city till Sunday/Monday. Meet then?
@lut4rp Super! Sometime this weekend? Should we rally the troops?
@lut4rp Yes sir.
By Sonal Jha over at the new @Bricolage_mag
@gonsalves_r How I wish! That was Australian Grand Prix induced nostalgia.
@keeperofthekeys You can embed individual tweets, much like YouTube videos. Get the code from a tweet’s ‘Details’ page.
Oh beautiful Melbourne …
Yay yay yay for ESPN sourcing Martin Brundle & Crofty’s commentary. This season will be so much better for this reason alone!
@wildiris Congratulations on shipping Kriti!
@SirLoondry Yes, yes, a thousand times yes.
@rasagy Cue help document — Go to your ‘My Computer’ and double click.
I agree “for ever” is hyperbole on my part, but for good reason.
@souvikdg Dang! Updated.
@wildiris … okay set everything to private now. Thanks for the tip off! What did you settle on?
@wildiris Public? Wait a minute…
@ap00rv Aye, fun, but also too long. Maybe over a beer.
If anyone wants to understand the effectiveness of design by contrast/comparison, go experience how Dropbox and Box solve the same problem.
What a venue that Zorba the Buddha is. Trees and ponds and frogs! All so wonderfully exploited for the different acts of the play.
Topping off that fantastic week was a splendid performance of ‘The Winter’s Tale’ (in English & Hindustani) by the super Tadpole Repertory.
@shalynee Speaking of gaming arcades, you should totally watch Wreck-It Ralph.
What a way to bid adieu to winter & bring in the spring: Sonam Kalra, Abida Parveen, Norah Jones, Swarathma & Anoushka Shankar. In one week.
@arpancj I’d recommend increasing the font size. And I still find the square-profile-photos-clipped-by-circles a little strange.
@arpancj Square pegs in round holes?
@_RohitNag Too much bling for your taste. Send it down here. To me, to meee!
@xAbhishek Yay! Nice set of principles.
@tulsid Excellent! I was headed to the IHC this Saturday anyway, and now I have more reason. Thanks so much for pointing it out.
@ap00rv Our home page? We still haven’t figured out the best way to selectively serve retina images for img tags. Just CSS backgrounds.
@ap00rv Not yet. We were already serving retina images via CSS, so nothing has changed on that front.
@turmericdesign Happy happy b’day Kriti. Keep spreading the cheer! :)
@keeperofthekeys Well that settles the dust.
@keeperofthekeys Nidhi excited about public transport!?
@SirLoondry Why keep your Instagram feed private when the photos are public on your site anyway?
But I agree. Watched it after tweeting & realized this wasn’t it.
@ap00rv Hmm. Was that your takeaway from my talk? I only recall one proper mention about payment gateways and that was during the Q&A.
@rakeshrach Glad to hear that! I rushed through a little too fast though. More pauses next time.
@bhavyakhanna दोस्त हो तो तेरे जैसा!
@gonsalves_r The placeholder copy that made it through to the final release…
@gonsalves_r Was that [REDACTED] copy something about ignition and bootlegging?
@anexasajoop Missed it by 24 hours. Epaper the next best option?
@anexasajoop Was in Odisha for the weekend. Left yesterday and about to reach Bangalore in an hour. :-/
@turmericdesign As a kid, I always use to envy how tuned-in city kids were compared to us small towners. Funny how these things pan out.
Rourkela, Odisha. Bring on the Dahi Bara Aloo Dum!
@turmericdesign No, but close. From Chakulia, a small town in Jharkhand close to the Bengal border.
Nothing says I’m close to home quite like a jhaal muri hawker on the train.
@keeperofthekeys I find history (and especially mythology) works best when spiked. Winning combo!
@rashmiswamy Nice! Have a great weekend.
@mightyboosher Jiminy cricket, he flew the coop! And I’m deputizing the bald guy.
Related, have you seen Submarine?
@rashmiswamy Where to?
@jonathandmello Now we’re talking! Would love to hear you speak on this.
@rashmiswamy Woah woah. Did you get hold of any goodies? :P
@GnrlMxms *MuchMuchFaster, no?
@mightyboosher Just a week? Where and through which magical agent? We’ve been hunting for a month now!
@rasagy Excellent! Perhaps follow with a discussion on the many different interpretations of these great epics. (eg. Mani Ratnam’s Raavan)
Public Service Announcement: Add at least 20-30 mins to your safety net when boarding a train from New Delhi station. Crazy queues at entry.
“After a certain number of years, programming becomes much less about correctly instructing the computer …
@wildiris Yay! Ping me when you’re ready. :)
@vrinda_m What’s a Lutyens party?
@wildiris And I’m (enthusiastically) volunteering all my tech / design skills.
Also, I’ll stop now. :)
@wildiris If I was to generalise, I’d say the larger the group, the more diluted the enthusiasm.
@wildiris And it doesn’t have to be all-encompassing. In fact, it probably shouldn’t be.
@wildiris It did? Shucks. But will that stop you from trying again? There’s an undeniable gap to be filled here for both writers & readers.
Delhi Metro construction wok in full swing on the Outer Ring Road. It’s like they’ve taken over the stretch overnight.
@lokallobaat *Maati Baani.
Also, told ya!
@umadamle Where to?
Sorry for the recent spam. Thanks @rashmiswamy for bringing it to my notice.
Yes Mad-eye, more vigilance…
Great msnbc article, take a look if you’re trying to get a job http://t.co/Td7faYSe
A link back to the source Instagram post should be fine. Do let me know! /@rashmiswamy
@lokallobaat Where did you end up?
@gonsalves_r Oh it was. Thanks Rahul!
@rakeshrach Thanks Rakesh! A day is too small a time for all those treats. More like the whole year! Come to Delhi maybe? :)
@rasagy More of a fluid feast, but celebrating for sure. Thanks Rasagy!
@achalvarma Thanks Achal. :)
@keeperofthekeys Thanks Nidhi!
@_karan बहुत धन्यवाद करन जी !
@bhavyakhanna Pajero budday gift?
