Oscar & Indians

Posted by Dnyanraj on February 23, 2009

“Slumdog Millionaire” won 8 Oscar Awards!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jai ho!!!

The Indian king of music has won 2 Oscars.. One for original score and Another for original song..

The another Indian Resul Pookutty won Oscar for the same movie in ‘best sound mixing’ category.

This is really golden day for Indian Film Industry!!

But.. the controversy is with the word “Slumdog”, many people many views.. Everyone has a different angle to look at things. What i think is: people living in slum area are not dogs.. If the intentions of the writer are not to call them dogs but to show their problem & the treatment they are getting, then we all should be Ok with it.

Laptop in Rs.1000/- ????

Posted by Dnyanraj on February 15, 2009

Does it look possible?

At least not to me, until i read this news.

Government of India has allocated Rs 5,000 crore for education mission through ICT, so that students of all professional-science programmes could own their own laptops.

Later after few days i heard that these laptops are having only few files in it, which will be used by students for their study purpose. If this is true then its just a calculator with some memory…

I am waiting for real news to come & also waiting for actual price & configuration of laptop..

I remember something like “Desktop in Rs.10,000/-” project Indian government, that was really BAD..

It was a p3 computer with over-clocked processor

Mark Cuban is Funding Open Source Entrepreneurs

Posted by Dnyanraj on February 13, 2009

I think, this is right time to start any business because you don’t have anything to loose. Whatever customers you will be getting is your plus point & of course if you can survive in this recession period you’ll definitely bounce back with next boom..

I came across this great blog regarding Funding for Open Source business

So, if you think you have some idea which can be transfered into a big business go ahead & put you business plan to Mark’s blog.

There are certain conditions like

  • Business should be Open Source
  • Break even in 60 days & profitable in 90 days
  • Mark keeps all rights to fund a business or stop funding at all etc..

There are some more conditions, which you’ll find on his blog. Obviously there are hundreds of people submitting their business plans. I am waiting to see how many of them actually get funding & whether this creates some good companies.
