The Nocturnal period, a result

One thing I like about you,
Is that you work with your heart, no matter what you do.
Oh ! You take so much of pain,
You can't help much when you don't have option of using your brain

I am sitting here,
wondering why am I so happy
I am discovering there is fun
Even in changing a baby's nappy

Accidents happen in a flash
Its due to driving rash,
You probably ended with just a sash
But do you realize, this accident you turn your life into hash?

I got up early
Isn't that rare?
It was a new feeling,
I could almost taste the air

Everyday girl,
Oh! she is so caring.
After slashing thru the heart, she asks
"Dear, do you need anything?"

The hardest thing I do everyday,
Is to turn and walk away.
Cant show how much you had meant to me
But you can't keep me tied, my heart is now free

There is blood and there is gore,
It pains like hell when the wounds are sore.
"Need any help?" is what they ask,
When my body is shaken right upto the core.

How can you be so cold?
Does everything need to be told?
Do you still have humility?
Or along with love, even that is sold?

Some more of my (stupid) poems. Written as late as 6AM. These days I just can't sleep before 3AM, I dunno why. Jeez, Gates seems to have become a nocturnal creature!!! (can't sleep? Surely something is wrong with me).

The Google world, adieus!

I just think that Google and its people are all set to a world monopoly.

Grad students Larry Page & Sergey Brin create search engine BackRub in 1996, using a dorm room as a data center. Several years and many millions later, they renamed their company.

Its now known as Google.

Google, emerges as both a verb and a leader in online search. (Heard about "Just Google it!")
Its derived from word "Googol" which means numeral 1 followed by 100 (yes hundred) zeroes

Gmail came with storage of 1GB! (well even rediff has same capacity but no one bothers to look at it, probably because its Indian). On being questioned company stated that "Google's mission is to organize the world's information and make it universally useful and accessible." People did anything to get those few "invitations", some even getting their arms tattooed with the word Google.

Its other products - picassa 2, froogle, google desktop search are just in line. Blogger incidentally happens to be a Google innovation as well.

Whats latest it Google taking over Wikipedia. Wikipedia.org which emerged as world's (free) global encylopedia a few years ago, is in dire need of funds to keep it going. I just happend to read that google is keen to offer "help" for nothing in return. Google happend to take over Usenet as well sometime ago and collaborated the interface with Google groups, now Usenet is a non-existant entity. I personally like Wikipedia and I don't think I would like to see it as Googlopedia. I cross my fingers...

Its a small world, please don't make it smaller.
