Napolean's island ref was a great hook :)
 
“Picking up a paper this morning, it suddenly struck me that Napoleon (whose 193rd birthday falls today) must be one of the few people who actually experienced that age-old question: ‘If you were stranded on a desert island, what would you read?’”

This week’s staff picks, including the worst video game ever made, Napoleon’s favorite beach read, and Salinger’s Ring Lardner: http://tpr.ly/1pjaqIe

So this is the HOA I did from last week - it was a conversation on Podcasting.
 
I did a Hangout on Air earlier today where I spoke about Podcasting - Listening, Creating, Discovery and a bit about tools for each. You can catch the videos here:

and
PartB:

Towards the end of the hangout, +Arvi Krishnaswamy asked me to share some of my favourite podcasts. I thought it would be interesting to share some recent ones that I enjoy:

Appalling indeed. Yep, going to play it again and again and learn
 
Try this wonderful, addictive game, and be appalled by your ignorance.  I mean to play it until I've learned my geography! 
Find all African countries as quick as you can. It's harder than you might think.

Death and Life
Death and Life, 1916,  Gustav Klimt For a closer look at this painting, check out Khan Academy's Smart History segment
If you are a lover of printed words, you would know how much of your time is taken by books alone. Then one day, sooner or later, you discover a huge vacuum within that you know next to nothing about other art forms. This blog is an attempt to fulfil one such lacunae in the art of painting.

Very cool!
 
This is really impressive, Kinect-like gesture recognition using just the subtle changes to WiFi signals from your motion.

Introduction
I studied Computer Science in school. I study literature on my own. I enjoy reading and writing. I often say "I don't know" to questions my kid asks me because I really do not know many things. However I look them up and learn. 

It is indeed a privilege to be living in this age where you can strive to be and do much better than at any prior point in history. 

Hello and Enjoy your day!
