The CIS staff were very helpful and Royson immediately arranged refreshments and we both started off discussing what the dojo was all about -- many dojo participants around the world were nice enough to have a discussion on how they did things, what worked and didnt -- so it being the first day we had time to discuss how to structure it or not to have a structure at all, etc... In the middle of this discussion NigelB and Akshay Gandhi walked in and the discussion veered to the RHCE course he had joined. Later Nigel showed us the git graph he was working on. We had a longish discussion on git, bug trackers, communities and it was 8.45pm when we left, but not before planning to meet next week to work on nltk at 7pm same place. Join us!
I'm was multi-tasking --listening to a IE9 product pitch for html5/css3, while typing this entry, so any errors and missing information can be attributed to the much tortured greycells. </excuse>

A visiting professor wrote about a commercial opportunity available at their college which is looking for folks who can set up a bulletin board and forum to answer questions from students. Here is a brief write up of the job:
a) Are you the one who can answer all the following questions without flipping / blowing your top off :
1) How can I use the vi editor to edit my file? What is Couchdb?
2) How can I compile my program better than typing javac myProgram.java / How can I use the Facebook OpenGraph API?
b) Are you someone who is willing to be surrounded by young minds willing to learn and open to learning new stuff? Are you willing to try new stuff that can help improve the spread of knowledge
c) Do you feel stifled by your job and are willing to try out the new technologies before settling on a steady corporate job? Have you wanted to improve the quality of learning? Have you yearned for infrastructure to try your ideas but did not find it. For example do you want to try a cluster ? Do you want to play around with Clojure and want a couple of interns / bright minds who can help you try Proof Of Concept ideas ?
d) Are you good in setting up forums / moderating online technical forums
e) Are you in Bangalore?
If all the above excites you and you want to contribute to the making of the next generation education institution this is your choice. Send a mail to firstname.lastname@example.org with your resume and a short write up on why you fit the bill and we can start talking.

If that is the local state of affairs, the national level is no better. Nope, Sonia Gandhi, a woman at the helm has not changed things for the better. Its not uncommon for women to bear the brunt and pay the price when it comes to law-making policies. India has always had women politicians and yet the scams continue to tumble out of the closet catching the players on a sticky wicket, and we continue to live with corruption, lobbying for power while the money-making games continue, resulting in tacit compromises instead of clean governance. If anything politicians lack the will to root out corruption and a citizen has no choice when it comes to choosing a clean political party to represent them. Today, corruption and crimes are committed by politicians from just about every party and ideological frame of mind --Quid pro quo.
