Meet Tweetdeck in real-time

Tweetdeck real-time twitter streaming

How often do you click on “N new tweets” on the top of your twitter timeline? I have even stopped counting on how often I do that. Go ahead and call me a twitter addict but if you are reading this, chances are that even you are an addict as well!

I had always wondered that why can’t twitter timeline auto-update itself at regular intervals or may be, everytime a new tweet concerning me, goes live. And this is much before Facebook started auto-updating its timeline.

I am what I am: Really, is that it?

I am what I am

Life is about what we are. Isn’t it? Unlike most other living creatures we are the only species called human “beings”. I personally have never heard of a cat being or a dog being. Give or take, my logic says it is this way simply because we as humans have the choice to “be” the way we choose, hence we are aptly called human “beings”. The power lies in our hands to make what we do of our lives.

Another interesting fact, and this has been observed by experts, is that human beings do better when they are competing against someone rather than performing the same task by themselves. Obviously then, competition brings out the better in us, in comparison to an ordinary non-competitive situation.

Design candies are not for me

Design Candies are not for me

Damn those designers who make their designs pretty and wow. Why the hell do you keep adding another beautiful element? Why do you beautify them so much? Why do you make them pretty? So pretty that I forget what I was there for?

You guys are doing a great disservice to your clients – their users are lost in your ‘pretty’ design. You are doing a great disfavor to yourself and designers by calling yourself ‘designers’.

Design is not web 2.0. It’s not beautiful or ugly. It’s not any of that. Design is Solving Problem of Effective Communication

Myspace is no more, as per its new logo

Myspace is no more!

You might want to read further before expressing your excitement. Yesterday a close friend tipped me on how Myspace got itself a new logo. If we strictly go by its new logo, Myspace is reduced to a ‘My’ and a blank.

Logo redesign seems to be the favourite trend of 2010, to breathe life into a certain brand, website or for that matter, anything [insert a company that was once popular but not anymore]. Actually it seems like a common PR exercise to get people talking, good or bad.
