Misc Stuff Durable Link to this BLOG
My regrets for the lack of updates here. I have been busy losing tennis matches (link to 0-5 USTA record), and earning a living.

Amma on Manu

Amma takes a very sympathetic look at ancient Indian works of Manu. He is the Hindu sage who laid the code of conduct that determined the status of women in Indian society for centuries.

At one place he has said that "the woman is not worthy of freedom", in another place, he says "Gods live only where women are revered". The feminists have long made a career of condemning Manu, but Amma provides some fresh perspectives.

Stale Blogs

I do not want to subscribe to the opinion that blog posts should live forever. My database is getting full so I am thinking of what to do with older, insignificant entries.

Some Ideas:
• Remove the news value of the post and make it relevant in any time period -- this involves removing of osbscelete links, removal of timestamps, and changing anchors from date/times to integers.
• Remove insignificant posts
• Some posts (especially by Amma) are very good; archive them as articles by placing them on appropriate content folders on
• Provide a new way to Browse older posts, so even very old posts that persist can be linked meaningfully.

I have already started the process.. Browse Blogs now has deep links to every entry. It can be browsed by AnthoBLOGy or Amma's Column.

Old entries sometimes do make interesting reading. For instance see the first month of AnthoBLOGy.

This is how I surf the web. Turns out creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping, personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
