Isn’t that cool?
Isn’t that cool?
I just loved this…
food for thought!
how do we touch lives through technology?
how do we preserve cultures in this fast-paced, high-tech world?
how do we draw that small curve (that sets everything straight) on someone’s face?
Digital Literacy is one of the many programs of Microsoft Unlimited Potential, I am so happy reading in Hindi after a long time, reminds me of school.
‘Simply amazing’ is what happened… I did not understand anything at first except that it was about Microsoft Office, but its OMG!, only when I zoomed out did I understand a little of what Office is all about, and how it evolved. Does it require to be clever or is it just being simple straightforward? User Experience is my passion…’users are emotional about software’ I do not doubt a bit. ‘Human Interface design is one part art and one part science’…well said Jensen. Did someone just say ‘design’?
And now what? Office 2010 is here!…
umm…yeah…I will have a few sleepless nights over this…
If a tree falls in a forest and no one is around to hear it, does it make a sound?
my answer is ‘No’, it is the perception that brings matter and events into existence. You say it is there and it is there, you say it is not there and that is true again. There is no ‘truth’ to be proved as such. If you have more people sharing a perception that becomes a fact.
Today I spent some time reading this related article on Wikipedia, and it made quite a lot of sense to me.
Here is an interpretation from the article “The scientific answer, perhaps originally intended, is that no, the tree does not make a “sound”. It makes sound waves, that without an instrument such as an ear, do not convert to actual sound. The common sense answer, as the question has mostly come to rely on, is that yes, it obviously makes a sound since we know that a tree falling makes noise regardless of whether anyone is around or not. The metaphysical, and perhaps first roughly proposed, answer is that no, the tree does not make a sound if no one is there to witness it falling. And indeed the act of making a sound isn’t even a quandary, all that matters is that the tree in fact ceases to exist if no one is there to witness it.”
Some beautiful flowers that showed up at my balcony few days back, do they exist or is it just my eyes…
