Prof. Randy Pausch spoke at the commencement for the Carnegie Mellon batch of ’08. Randy is terminally ill and 9 months ago, doctors had given him only 6 months to live.

Two Belgian beer fans have launched a video game named ‘Place to Pee’, which allows players to slalom down ski slopes or kill aliens while relieving themselves at urinals! They take the phrase “point and shoot” to a whole new level! Apparently they were inspired one afternoon while drinking beer! I am waiting for my moment of inspiration. I bow to these innovators! Obelix would surely have said “These Belgians are crazy” !

And then, I just liked this header image! Would love to have an image that is a mix of Mumbai and San Francisco in that place. If you know of an image of a typical Mumbai street please give me links! I shall play with Gimp, which is essentially the open source version of Photoshop and make myself a nice header 🙂
I am not sure about the white background though. Wastes energy! Check out godark.us to save the world by using less energy on your monitors 🙂
