What’s up with all the silence, OZ

Wasn’t blogging for a while and let me tell you why!

Let me be the first to admit that I had been awfully quiet on my blog for a few months. All the silence of the blog is not telling the whole story of my past months. Looking back, they had been hectic. Let’s break it down a bit!

Hello Fatherhood

Became father of a baby gal (wooohoooo)… I was shit scared but holding your child is the best feeling in the whole… words can’t explain and words are not enough.

Few Other things!!

Apart from the big apples! Participated in Google Code Jame, Hackathon and learned how to change diapers:D, had an argument with Lufthansa Flight (see twitter for the whole story :p)

There you have it! A quick summary of what happened. Now the dust is settled, I will add more blogs and videos (so stay tuned!)

AwareUI @ FOSSASIA

FOSSASIA has become one of the most popular tech / dev conferences of the region. I got an opportunity to talk @ FOSSASIA this year. The atmosphere was great and met some amazing people.

I talked about my on-going project “Aware User Interface”. A user interface that can learn, adapt and evolve according to user’s context. The contexts in focus are 1) Environment and 2) User (surrounding, proximity, physiology and psychology).

I will post separate blogs about my new initiative “Aware User Interface”. On the side note, it was a pleasant surprise when I saw Apple’s Keynotes on 21st March, where they introduced #nightshift and #truetone. I talked about the same thing a day earlier 🙂
