Okay, I’ve been bad. You can see from my last post that I said I was going to blog more “in the coming months.” I guess I could spin it and say “Hey, less than 5 months later I am blogging again; 5 months – that is a coming month.” That would be BS. I have some excuses – so I’ll lay them out:
Internet access in India is bad and I honestly can’t spend as many hours online as I’d like to because access is so bad. In my apartment, in Mumbai, after 11 months I still don’t have great broadband access. It’s often down. I’ve applied to MTNL (the local state run telecommunications monopoly) which has supposedto have a decent connection speed and reliability (where have I heard that before?) and like all good monopolies they told me to hold on and they’d get me internet access when they’re good and ready to give me internet access – current ETA about 2 months from time of installation. I tried the “Do you know who this is?” line. Unfortunately, I got a blank look and the lady said “Who?” It’s just not as effective when that happens and it was another reminder of how nonimportant I am.
I have been really busy working my tail off and combined with #1 it’s just hard to spend the time to pretty up posts with the links and research you need to. The company I started a little more than a year ago, Komli, has grown to almost 30 people, and we are working hard to build some great products for our customers to make their lives better. That’s what we love doing.
Wow, I thought I had a whole list of reasons, but really that’s it. Okay, so my (late) New Year’s resolution is to start blogging more. I will start doing it, I promise. Mostly, because I want to start a dialog with folks about some topics of interest to me (and hopefully you!). I have a lot to learn from folks for sure.
