    We were aware of Lyons’ Fake Steve Jobs blog but were unaware that he inspired the fake IPL player.

    Did you read the lengthy, interesting Apple/Jobs piece in the Times?

    If you love technology, then you have to read this essay:
    Have I mentioned “Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintanence” to you? Try to get a hold on that too. Great read.
    Read the above piece, btw. Nice.

    Have already started on the first one. Will complete it later today.

    Will buy the book on Half.com (good find for really cheap books).

    The essay is a decade old, wrote in 1999, and you have to read it in that context. And a lot has changed since then.

    We’ve read a few paragraphs so far…so good and the age of the essay has not been an issue, yet.

    i finished my homework, massa.. it was a good read.. dunno whether we can trust the psychoanalysis and other speculations.. being loony is a prerequisite for being great, I guess.

    It was not a pathbreaking piece.

    But for a newspaper piece, which seldom goes beyond the shallow, it was quite good.

    True, genius is usually accompanied by misfirings in the synapses.

    Must check with our neurologist and get one of those CAT or PET or RAT scans done. Who knows what we’ll find.

    SI, What did you think of the essay? I find quite a lot of things there to be true. What did you think of his views on multiculturalism? Most people get an ego rush when their creed are described as Morlocks that control the rest(unlike in the novel, Have you read The Time Machine?, i read it a long time back and didn’t like it then but when I think about it now, a lot seems to make sense) and maybe thats why I like the essay so much. Anyways, I’ve read it atleast 5 times……

    We’ve read a third or fourth of the lengthy essay and so far we haven’t been impressed.

    We’ll update this comment after we finish the full essay.
