More posts soon (I Hope)

November 8, 2012

My best time for blogging is the weekends.  Evenings are long here.  Since we do so many calls with the US, work usually wraps up 7:30 or 8-ish – or a little later now with the US daylight savings time change.  We do start at the office a bit later, 10 or so, but I like to use the mornings to exercise and catch up on newspaper reading – I read the NY Times, Boston Globe and India Times.

2 weekends ago I spent Saturday car-shopping – I’ll have a whole post about that in a few weeks – and Sunday golfing, at the Poona Golf Club:


Noel Coward wrote that “Only mad dogs and Englishmen go out in the noonday sun.”  We have to add golfers to that.

Then this past weekend I was in Mumbai, at an IBM SWG team event called “Connect in 2012” and an IBM customer event called Software Universe.  The opening presentation for this event had a video on a super-wide screen – like, 50 meters wide – and 3 ninja-like dancers “manipulating” the images as if there was a giant touch-screen:


The event was great, I got to speak with a number of Indian customers and Indian colleagues, plus many technical leaders who travelled here from around the world.

Today I travel to Bangalore for the wrap-up of the week’s technical meetings.  But I’ll be back on Saturday and hopefully will have time for some more blogging.

    Hope that driving in Pune is much more relaxed then New Delhi.
    I could not imagine myself driving in New Delhi although I am used to the driving in Israel which is not so calm…

    It is very tough for foreigners to drive in India. You need an international license and I believe you need to show proof of having taken a local driving course. For all that the traffic and way of driving really would take a lot of getting used to. What I will do, and what many actual Indians do, is retain a driver. This person will come to my house each day and drive me where I need to go. Good drivers are prized commodities and make more than maids or other household helpers.
