Sometimes I feel that I have all the time in the world for blogging, ( just that I don’t have enough blogging ideas ).
Then I looked around and found many people who write regularly ( personal blogs maintained by individuals with at least one post a day ) and even blogging superheros like Nikhil who manage multiple blogs with ease ( what’s the magic dude !! ) . So they have something more valuable than blogging time; blogging ideas and the flow.
But there is another group who struggle finding enough time for blogging. yet another group struggling to find ideas ( I am in this group guys !! ) Which group do you belong to ?
Is it easy for you to find time or ideas for blogging ? How do you find post ideas, where you do you save them ?

I know this is too much to ask for now, but, still I am really interested to learn this. Installing Android on netbook/laptop that is.
It may take some more time before we actually see Android on Netbooks, and Laptops etc. But, there are some news here and there about people installing Android on their netbooks and nokia phones etc. I am still searching for an article that explains how to do this. ( if you guys know something of that kind, please leave a comment here )
I find tutorials on how to install Google Android SDK ( well it works only on Linux, or Apple’s OSX as of now !! ) but no luck on finding something about installing Android OS itself.
That’s what I am feeling right now. The joy of turning the last page of the book…Â finished reading another book ! I feel great !! Do you feel the same when you finish a book ? . Well, text books are an exception, when you are at the last page, you know it’s time for exams !
The Motorcycle Diaries : Ernesto “Che” Guevra
Now, about the last book I read. ( This is not a book review, but just my thoughts about the book. )Â I picked this one with loads of expectations. I am not quite sureÂ if this was up to my expectations. But, it was touching, that’s for sure.
A sincere travelogue by a young medical student. In that way this book is more than perfect. But, I was expecting something about how he became the Che that we know. I was disappointed, to some extend, but the last chapter of the book did give something that I wanted.
Staying online and reading books, that’s the new technique that I am testing.Why ?
I tried several times to stay offlineÂ to read more books. But,Â twitter, blogs, google reader, comments, chats, orkut, facebook, oh no !! I leave the book there and come back, every time. Do you think I am addicted to blogging or internet in general ? well, I think so ..Â and I have started missing books.
When twitter became popular, I thought people will stop blogging and start twittering. But people started blogging about twitter. More blogs were created serving various aspects of twittering. When I started twittering, it influenced my blogging habits in a positive way. Your tweets make me feel good, and keep me inspired.
I Read More
I get to read moreÂ interesting articles, thanks to twitter. 90% of tweets that I see, includes a link. It could be an article that they liked, their own blog post, or a funny picture. Anything worth a retweet is shared among everyone, and we all read it. Other than comment forms on blogs, Twitter gave meÂ another platform to communicate, share and socialise. Continue reading
Understanding Linux as a user
The open source theory is not my attraction. I use Linux because it is a good operating system and that’s the only reason.When I write about Linux, I am notÂ preaching freedom and open source or any of those theories…Â but I am trying to tell you about a good operating system that I use.
My job introduced Linux to me as an operating systemÂ that does almost everything that windows can do, and lot of things that Windows can not do. I used linux because I had to, and I did not leave Linux because I started loving it.
This will not happen very often. We do not have platforms where general public get introduced to Linux. Linux and most of the things related to it are shared within the Geek Communities around the Internet.
The next step, reach the common man
What Linux should do now, as early as possible, is to introduce Linux to the common man. This should happen online and offline. There is a great community of Linux users. They can easily do this, using their online and offline contacts.
Imagine, you found a nice blog with loads of posts about one of your favourite topics, wordpress. Naturally, you will subscribe to it’s RSS feed. Now, this blog is not just about wordpress. They also publish articles about Linux, Photoshop, and Mac .. which you are not interested in.
After few days or weeks, the blog starts filling your RSS feed reader with posts that you are not interested in and every time you look at the count of unread items on the reader, you feel bad ..
