Biographies and auto bio threw open the lives of people. That was limited accessibility. Not anymore. Thanks to blogging, we can follow some people live. Here are few people whose blogs I read and admire them:

First on the list is Kalyan. Managed server in college, gives speeches on Linux, wrote articles to magazines, got into Yahoo!, takes a sabbatical after 3 years, looses camera, buys a new one partly with the help of donations from friends, does a photography course, becomes full time photographer, continues his consultancy, had an offer for research at IISc, becomes a naturalist, celebrates his birthday in jungle, allows a miami cruise contract to pass, shoots wow pics in jungle, blogs from jungle, gets abducted into monkey kingdom, experiences once in a life time event etc. His posts are just too entertaining. It is a very good experience to follow the life of a man who is doing what he wants to. For any normal post of his, the comments are near half century.

Next, is Pradeep . Did work at few places, but always knows what he wants to do and where he is heading. Highly technical, has a web-site since almost a decade, a passionate open source follower, a voracious reader, delivers talks at conferences, writes articles to leading publications, can speak on anything at any length, movie-theater lover. The more I provoked him the more I got to learn, thats how I remember him! If I want to know something about an open source technology, all I should do is just bash about that in front of him 😉

Swaroop. Wrote a book on python, roams around to give lectures on python, has plans for hobby project, has a blog that is bookmarked by anyone and everyone and has the simplest bio-data I have seen.

There are few others whose life has amused me. I will write at an appropriate time.
