  • Blog Post: Yelp meet Rapleaf

    The article by Ellen Lee over at the SF Chronicle about merchants getting all pissy at Yelp seems to have made it on to TechMeme . Yelp has become the destination for a business’s reputation. I don’t advocate that anyone try anything in SF unless they have Yelped it first and they are comfortable with...
  • Blog Post: blogging less, twittering more?

    This ~110 character tweet by Veronica Belmont sums up why I too, have been blogging less. I've been wanting to write a post about my 75 day experience Twittering (which may very well end up becoming my 90 day experience Twittering). Either way, for better or worse, I'm twittering a LOT more now. Follow...
  • Blog Post: new hot startup - thatsWhatSheTwittered.Com

    I'm proud to announce the beta launch of thatsWhatSheTwittered.com . The co-founders gave me an early preview of the site. This has to be one of the most brilliant ideas I've ever come across, and I'm proud to be a part of this new venture. thatsWhatSheTwittered (starts with a small 't') is an amazing...
  • Blog Post: Shouldn't Twitter be able to do exactly what FriendFeed does?

    I've started using FriendFeed . Not as a consumer of different people's feeds (because there is just way too much information), but because I can now point people to one location ( http://friendfeed.com/anandiyer ) where most of my different social networking services' activities are getting aggregated...
  • Blog Post: blogger's block

    I'm suffering from a serious case of blogger's block. If you're wondering, yes, it is like writer's block in a lot of ways. I've also been extremely busy and suffering with some (professional) issues. But aside from that, everything's been peachy. In a few lines here are some things I've wanted to communicate...
  • Blog Post: Steve Ballmer should no longer be misunderstood

    I'd mulled over my post on Steve Ballmer being misunderstood for a long time before I actually posted it. I wanted it to be known that he is in fact one of the most intelligent human beings on the planet, and I felt that way for more than just personal reasons. I think the giant crowd that is here at...
  • Blog Post: life is so unfair

    I was at a friend's son's birthday party last weekend. We were all huddled around the parents, and the kid, with the cake and everything. No one seemed to be taking the initiative to start singing happy birthday. The parents didn't wanna do it. So I screamed out "1, 2, 3, happy birthday ..." and everyone...
  • Blog Post: have a song stuck in your head? too bad...

    I have a problem. Songs magically make their way in to my head, and often stay there. Sometimes, I can't get them out. Sometimes, the only way to get one song out, is to get another one in. There was this incident , and then this incident . It seems to keep happening. I was super excited when I read...
  • Blog Post: Yelp valuation too high? Oh please...

    First, congratulations to the Yelp team on raising another round . Just last week at the Online Marketing Summit after our panel talk, I spoke to a few people from other verticals like medical, finance and automotive about how I think everyone sees the world through their own little lens. By the same...
  • Blog Post: google maps for mobile v window live for mobile

    I've had my Samsung Blackjack II for a few months now. One of the things about this phone that excited me the most was the integrated GPS. I unlocked the GPS receiver (follow the instructions on that site verbatim to unlock your GPS*) to work outside of just TeleNav. Unfortunately though, I couldn't...

  • Blog Post: Steve Ballmer is misunderstood

    In the wake of the Microsoft-Yahoo acquisition proposal, I've met quite a few disappointed Yahooligans. And they are not disappointed that they'd be working at Microsoft, they are disappointed that they'd be working for Steve Ballmer . And it's not just the Yahooligans - I can't tell you how many random...
  • Blog Post: my best compliment

    Sure a lot of my blog posts are self-righteous, self-involved, non-humble posts. This one's not very different. But I felt like I need to air this one out, because it felt good, just thinking about what I'd heard. A friend told me the other day that she likes hanging around me because I make her want...

  • Blog Post: the swing of the pendulum*

    A few years ago, I'd made a new year's resolution - the resolution was to not make any more resolutions. This year, I had to break my pact. I made some resolutions. I'm tired of being a victim of circumstance. Oh, the market's slumping, oh, the economy is not booming as much as it should, oh, I have...
  • Blog Post: why I don't twitter. and, why do you twitter?

    I don't twitter . Millions have asked me for my twitter handle. Millions . Yet, I stick with the simple philosophical reason that no one cares and that's why I don't twitter. Why I don't twitter No one cares enough to read through dozens and dozens of updates. People don't care enough about my life to...

  • Blog Post: thank you, Microsoft

    Yesterday marked my 3 year anniversary as a 'softie. As I look back over these 3 years, I can't help but be thankful for all the things the company's done for me. I don't mean to sound like a fan-boy (do Microsoft fan-boys even exist?), but for all the crap that people throw our way, present company...

  • Blog Post: classic (iPhone) i-block

    At a friend's " wine and cheese party " Saturday, I met this guy who was telling me how he was "i-blocked". So apparently this guy was sitting at a bar and had just met a girl. Things were looking up, he said. He'd just bought her a drink, she inched closer to him. And then bam - some guy comes out of...
  • Blog Post: thank you

    I was supposed to be on a trip headed back home last week, but it got canceled (for a variety of different reasons). So, I was going to spend Thanksgiving here, by myself mostly. It's amazing though how some times the best made plans, never materialize, and plans you'd never had end up being the best...
