Steve Jobs says:
And, you know, one of the things I did when I got back to Apple 10 years ago was I gave the museum to Stanford and all the papers and all the old machines and kind of cleared out the cobwebs and said, let’s stop looking backwards here. It’s all about what happens tomorrow. Because you can’t look back and say, well, gosh, you know, I wish I hadn’t have gotten fired, I wish I was there, I wish this, I wish that. It doesn’t matter. And so let’s go invent tomorrow rather than worrying about what happened yesterday.
Among the blogger community , Steve Jobs definitely scores more over Bill Gates!!!There is an article by Arpit Jacob , where he questions “Who is a better person Bill Gates or Steve Jobs?“ My vote was in Bill Gates’s favour taking the excellent work done by the “Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation” into consideration.
I hope you enjoyed the interview,just as I did Also, do cast your votes as to “Who do you think is a better person-Bill Gates or Steve Jobs?”

Twitter is a social networking and micro-blogging service that allows users to send “updates” (text-based posts, up to 140 characters long) via SMS, instant messaging, the Twitter website, or an application such as Twitterrific. Twitter was founded in October 2006 by San Francisco start-up company Obvious Corp.
Updates are displayed on the user’s profile page and also instantly delivered to other users who have signed up to receive them. The sender can restrict delivery to those in his or her circle of friends (delivery to everyone is the default). Users can receive updates via the Twitter website, instant messaging, SMS, RSS, or through an application.

Bloggers read blogs and link to articles from other’s blogs.However,stealing content is always a crime and if a blogger steals content from another blog,than he/she doesn’t know the basic principles of blogging.But,nowawdays mass media is not behind when you consider “Content Theft” and I had already mentioned in my previous post that Bloggers are getting media attention , so are we(bloggers) getting so much noticed,that media has to steal content from Blogs,for this read the story..
Media Theft story:
WAT Blog,as every blogger knows is a very popular and widely read blog.They have very niche content,which focusses towards Web 2.0 but,I never knew even Mid-Day was so much short of stories that it had to steal content(that too without modifying it) ,without giving any credit to WATBlog
Rajiv Dingra,founder of WATBlog is very correct in stating that “WATBlog cannot sue Mid-Day” but we(the blogger community) can definitely give a run for money to the Mid-Day guys!!!
We(bloggers) can collectively fight plagiarism,by making more people aware about the issue!!!Also,WATBlog has come out with a Blogger’s Council which would help bloggers focus on such issues and also minimizing(and collectively fight) “Content Theft”.
Together,we(Bloggers) can fight Plagiarism!!!
India,as you might have guessed,is not far and this is what Blog Herald reports about India:
India/ Pakistan: approx 1 million blogs no firm figures however.I’ve noticed a significant rise out of India recently, and certainly the Indian press is also reporting on the emergence of Indian blogs, which is a sure sign that there must be a reasonable number there.
Sub Total: 24.35 million

The important excerpts from the speech are given below:
1. Sometimes advice can come from an unexpected source, and chance events can sometimes open new doors.
2. Entrepreneurship, resulting in large-scale job creation, was/is the only viable mechanism for eradicating poverty in societies.
If you want to create a great company, we should be optimistic and confident. They have more than lived up to their promise of that day.
Below are life lessons from these events,in his own words.
Note: “I” in the article refers to Narayana Murthy
1. I will begin with the importance of learning from experience. It is less important, I believe, where you start. It is more important how and what you learn. If the quality of the learning is high, the development gradient is steep, and, given time, you can find yourself in a previously unattainable place. I believe the Infosys story is living proof of this.
Learning from experience, however, can be complicated. It can be much more difficult to learn from success than from failure. If we fail, we think carefully about the precise cause. Success can indiscriminately reinforce all our prior actions.
2. A second theme concerns the power of chance events. As I think across a wide variety of settings in my life, I am struck by the incredible role played by the interplay of chance events with intentional choices. While the turning points themselves are indeed often fortuitous, how we respond to them is anything but so. It is this very quality of how we respond systematically to chance events that is crucial.
3. Of course, the mindset one works with is also quite critical. As recent work by the psychologist, Carol Dweck, has shown, it matters greatly whether one believes in ability as inherent or that it can be developed. Put simply, the former view, a fixed mindset, creates a tendency to avoid challenges, to ignore useful negative feedback and leads such people to plateau early and not achieve their full potential.
The latter view, a growth mindset, leads to a tendency to embrace challenges, to learn from criticism and such people reach ever higher levels of achievement.
4. The fourth theme is a cornerstone of the Indian spiritual tradition: self-knowledge. Indeed, the highest form of knowledge, it is said, is self-knowledge. I believe this greater awareness and knowledge of oneself is what ultimately helps develop a more grounded belief in oneself, courage, determination, and, above all, humility, all qualities which enable one to wear one’s success with dignity and grace.
