Been almost a year since I have posted to this blog. Oh boy, it’s been a hectic 2010 but 2011 is getting even better. Of course there is no excuse to have not posted. Social media seems to be taking its toll on me.
But it’s been an interesting and hectic year and a half working with one of the leading online travel startups in India helping them build some kickass products and working with an enthusiastic team. More updates on that and what I have learnt coming up soon. Life has changed and for the better it is!
To regular blogging! Cheers.

Scoble claims to have been moved to tears after seeing a demo by the Microsoft Research team.
Something like this coming from Scoble is quite rare and this of course led to an avalanche of blog posts and predictions as to what this ground breaking thing could be. Popular predictions included Photosynth , Seadragon etc.
Scoble then came back with ‘Misreading Scoble on Microsoft cry’
One particular line caught my attention
The thing I’m talking about is NOT anything you’ve seen Microsoft do before.
That said, I think it will stand up to the kind of hype I unleashed yesterday. It is still inspiring me and I still want to get my hands on it as soon as possible.
Wonder what this could be ? Any predictions ? Btw, as per Scoble’s claims we would be getting to know about this by Feb 27.

Isn’t this game incredibly cool, check the video below. Looks like you really need to know your physics well to play this one 🙂 This one is from Kloonigames and runs on the tablet PC. A PC version of crayon physics is coming soon.
The user experience on this is incredible, watch how the game reacts as the user draws different figures and tries to achieve their objective. With the Wii and PS3 giving PC games a run for their money, I think innovative concepts like this one are a really good answer.
This makes me wonder about the process of gathering requirements for this game. I’m thinking, there are so many scenarios that need to be captured and then taking a call on which ones the game needs to support and deciding others to be left out. Phew ! It’s actually my dream to do requirements, scenarios and functional specifications for a gaming product. Wouldn’t that be cool 🙂
