| Technology Will Cure Racism|
This morning Wired News has a story of how a DNA study
shows close relationship of Appalachian people with an ancient tribe in India.
Earlier this year I also read a research paper (citation is shown below)
that found elements of the same tribe in the
genes of southern brahmins.
So, down with the superior race and superior caste theories. We are all really same!

haplotypes suggest evidence of gene flow among caste, tribe, and the migrant
Siddi populations of Andhra Pradesh, South India. European Journal of
Human Genetics, 9/1/01 (Vol. 9, No. 9) , pp. 695-700
Vi Users Never Die
VI (pronounced /V-I/ never /siks/) is the first visual editor I knew
and my fingers learnt how to use it. When I developed
the Programmer's Disease I tried to go back to vi, hoping to reduce
my usage of the mouse. Like bicycling and
swimming, you can really never unlearn what the body learns, and vi skills
came back to me naturally.
This week, I was very pleasently surprised to discover that Google keyboard shortcuts
actually supported vi keys for navigation. Very Cool.
Vi users never die, they keep yanking (vi's mechanism for copy & paste) back.
Also, I didn't know Bill Joy (the creator of NFS and Java) was the
author of Vi.
Some people have all the ideas....
