The 100 Post Milestone

I just noticed that post count on this blog  is hovering on 99. I didn't realized that I was so close to hitting a century . So here I go on to score the single . this blog is now 100 post Strong. 

One more thing, Last month "Knowprashant" celebrated its 4th Birthday. What started in a small cyber cafe of Bangalore has now become something like a part of my identity. Many a time in conferences people  say  "Hey !  You are "pacificleo" ? I read that post on your blog and it was good." . Needless to say that I feel good when that happen :) .

I would like to thank all  my readers .I  get to know a lot of interesting ppl through this blog . Thank you very much for your support,appreciation, feedback and emails . I wish I could publish the funny , weird and insightful email message I  receive from readers who ,for some strange reason are shy to leave them in comment . 

Today I would like to respond to one more  long overdue request of my friends .Many of them when they come to know that I do blogging ask me to send them a list of "My Fave posts and good post by other bloggers  ." Thanks to my laziness I never did that .So here goes.

My Fave Posts on "knowprashant" (not in any particular order ) 

First Love's Labour Lost  

Lost in Transition  

Buddha Meets Spider man 

Teacher and Parents  

Patterns and Observations 

Please Don't Try to Understand

Musing at 1:44 PM 

 As some of you know that I am a contributing author On too . I had a good conversation over one of my post about "why its difficult to have Companies like Facebook/google from India " . you can read it here  . Ok !! Enough of Self promotion . Here are some of the blogs I love reading and my fave among their writings.

Raganwald Braithwaite is my fave blogger,In fact his essay What I learned from Failure inspired me  to start blogging . some of his other exceptional article include  Haggling About Price [must read],  off Topic , Brief History of Dangerous Ideas .  

 I have lost count of how many time I have read How to be Creative byHugh Macleod . Its worth (Re) Reading . Mark Cuban's Blog blogmaverick  is worth subscribing to .My fave amongst his article are  Success and Motivation , Dancing With the Stars , What you are destined to be

 Amongst Indian  bloggers I like Jai Arjun's Blog Jabberwock  .If you are (like me ) a Meg Ryan fan then do read his funny article You'Ve got Mush . you can always trust Jai for best review of Bollywood flicks. Some other good blogs which I discovered are  Chit Chatni , My World My Space ,Joelonsoftware , Raw Thoughts , Smartmobs .  

 Article in American Scholar are usually nice .my personal fave is Disadvantages of Elite education . If you ever face the  discriminated by somebody from IIT -IIM  you will surely relate to this article [must read] .

 No list of my fave blogs  can complete without mentioning Inktales . Blog of My friend Sunandini Basu . I visit her blog whenever i need to laugh.She don't write, she draw sketches based on the events of her day to day life . Very very innovative. All her post are  funny like hell . Mumbai Chronicle is my fave . I had the honor of being featured in one of her drawing . you can see that post here . 

 I haven't covered the tech biz and friends blog here other wise list would have gone far too long  but I would like to mention that I start my day with reading News at Techmeme, Medianama and BoomTown .

That's it for the day Guys. I look forward to your continuous support ,feedback and patronage .

Happy Blogging !!
