Current book you are reading and what you love about it “Self Illusion – Why there is no YOU inside your Head” by Bruce Hood. This book maps the biology and chemistry of the brain to the way we conduct ourselves in the environments we live in and logically breaks down to the fact that who we are , are a reflection of multiple influences and that we have no individuality of our own. The strong suites are the prominent traits we display and those are a result of influences we were under and they are not our unique individuality. Still reading the book…the book might take an unexpected twist and negate everything that I said so far from what I read!!!!
Books you enjoyed reading the most Non Fiction
Software company you admire and why Pixar. Its the only company that has got technology to create productions that touch our heart and soul.
Hardware company your admire and why Boeing & Airbus. These are the only companies on the globe who create complex machines we are willing to travel on, machines which need to be perfect to prevent loss of life. The amount of technology packed into the aircrafts – both digital and hydraulic run by software is the most complex and amazing thing I have ever seen. This hardware ships a tender baby to a full grown adult with the same care, safety and sophistication.
IT personality you admire and why Steve Jobs. I admire Steve Jobs for the way he lived his life. He always skated to places where the puck would go…not to places where it had been. Innventor – Innovator – Businessman – God.
