Anantha Kumaran random thoughts

I write software programs for living, some of them are open source. I am currently employed by ActiveSphere. I try to better understand the world around me primarily via reading fiction, non-fiction, and technical books. I spend my free time on acquiring knowledge about things that interest me, which currently happens to be data visualizations and distributed systems. Occasionally, I write blog posts when I have something to say or ramble something out of sheer boredom, the list can be found below.
