My school leaving certificate spells my name as Soumyadip Choudhury (সৌম্যদীপ চৌধুরী), some call me The Chaiwallah. I work and live in what is generally referred to as Delhi (I work in Noida and stay in Ghaziabad).
My work profile labels me as a journalist (of the Internet kind) and my areas of specialisation includes technology. The Internet is the primary area of personal and professional interest and I also build products for the Web. I currently work for Network18 as a New Editor (amongst other things) with IBNLive.com.
In the eight years of empoyment, I have worked with HT Media, Career Launcher, The Times Group, NDTV and Network18 in various capacities.
As a chronicler of popular culture via advertising, movies, photos and more, I maintain a popular blog, Cutting the Chai, since 2005.
Have been hard-wired to everything tech since childhood, I have a penchant for making and repairing (and occasionally breaking) things. My wife and family suspect that I am secretly married to my laptop.
Was born and brought up in Shillong and that is the place I still call home (in the physical world).
