Technology has opened up many fora to interact with written words. To such an extent that the print media, physical books’  existence feel threatened for the sake of ease as with the example cited above.  But the things are not exactly same with the books-e-books as with stairs-elevator case. The feel of book and reading through a physical book  and even the smell of book has no match for its digital sibling – E books.

Arvind Passey ‏@arvindpassey (tweet friend says…)   You can carry an entire library in your Kindle… and end up reading not a single book! That’s the truth of digital books of today!

 

There will be a ever ending debate on the space , availability and cost perspective and in most cases the the digital sibling may win over its physical brother but in the end  (for me at least) its the book in hand that matters the most…

Well, I tried my hand on audio blogging for the first time, today. But didn’t want to put specifically to some podcasting websites. So I mixed it in movie maker and here I am… ta da…

I beg your pardon for the audio quality… please forgive me considering it was the first time :). I know you will. Thanks… 😀

The subject for this audio blogging was unknown even to me… well, I started impromptu, which you can guess with my long pauses… but surprisingly when i am writing this the thoughts are coherent and are in a flow… What a surprise ! I , sometime, surprise myself.  I just took to recording and the subject built upon itself.

I had done a similar recording earlier in which I read am interesting article from  the daily newspaper The Hindu.  Putting that article could have been violation of copyright (I guess) so I abstained from putting that audio in here.

Dear all, I will be very obliged if you can comment and record a feedback on this experiment.

Thanks
cheers !
