Different angle, same thing

Lessig referred to JC Watts. Who's he? After some Yahoo-ing I discovered a speech given by Watts to the NRA.

Watts makes a powerful point- is spirituality being erased in the name of political correctness? I attended a "convent" high school with was run by a catholic church, and being essentially an Hindu did NOT make me a convert, or hate christianity. It had the opposite effect - better understanding of a different religion makes me appreciate what are the good parts in both, and empathize better with other cultures.

I worry now about my daughter about to enter kindergarten in a month in the USA growing up without any spirituality besides the one at home, which she surely will not pay attention to since it is perceived as so wrong in the outside world.
Lessig's presentation style

I've listened to Larry Lessig's presentations on freedom from copyrights for sometime now thanks to ITConversations, but never got a chance to watch them. You can see what impressed the auidence so much here.

I'm truly transformed today.
Time for a change

Decided to change the name of this blog to reflect something bigger than one's job. Sure, for a long period of time it defined who I was. But no more.

EDS is rumored to sell A.T Kearney

Per the WSJ, EDS CEO considers management consulting "non-core" and wants to focus on basic outsourcing. Its ironic that other India based firms are coming from exactly the opposite direction and are expanding into management consulting. Maybe Infosys or someone will consider this purchase?
