Hello world!

March 17, 2009

Let me start with a cliched first post.

How did it all begin? Two grad students, one in the NID, Banglore, India doing a masters is design and one in Stevens inst. of technology, doing a Masters in CS were chatting.

We were roommates during our undergrad years and go by the nicks ulsci (Pavan Garre) and unTamed (Tejaswi Yerukalapudi). 

Anyway, during one of our usual chat sessions, ulsci suddenly came up with the bright idea. Why don’t we make a blog for ourselves? We were both interested in HCI and what the future holds for it. He would provide the design perspective, while I would provide a coders view and the technical challenges of ideas that we come up with. Let me paste the chat snippet – 

 

5:42 AM ulsci: hav u seen.. microsoft vision 2019 ??
5:43 AM me: Nope, link?
 ulsci: their vision with all existing technology..

Then came the usual discussion on blog names, getting a domain for ourselves etc. etc. and so here we are. Good blog name dont’cha think?
