In Seattle

I reached Seattle yesterday and was pleased to note that the wheather this time is a lot more pleasant. Its sunny and a bit cold - just the midway between sweltering heat of hyderabad during this time of year and the chilly and damp seattle in november when I last visited here.

As for the work here, Avi told me that the reason for this visit is mainly to assist the DepotPoint development team in customization of REO platform and since the existing platform is completely developed by the offshore team at Pramati I have to assist the DepotPoint development team in understanding the platform and getting started. Apart from that, I will also be discussing platform level designs with Avi about how to make the platform more generic and extensible.

So, for most of the time I will either be involved in knowledge transfer or in design discussions. Not only a change of location and weather but change of work as well. I am not complaining.

I will be here for about 3 weeks this time as opposed to 2 weeks last time. So, i am planning to explore the city a little more and if work load permits will probably head to San Fracisco on 22nd to be with Pussad and Cheta for an extended weekend (Monday, 25th is a holiday here) and play some cricket.

Can't really ask for more.

First Post

Ok, so I have finally decided to start this blog after the ceremonious procrastination of several months. But today I come here, in front of you, with a resolve to regularly update this blog.

Now, the first things first. What will I be writing about and what does the name of the blog mean? The answer to these two question is same. Stream of Consciousness, as defined by wikipedia is "a narrative mode that seeks to portray an individual's point of view by giving the written equivalent of the character's thought processes, either in a loose interior monologue, or in connection to his or her actions." So, as the title suggests, this blog will be a record of my experiences and thoughts in all their amorphous glory. I don't even have to be coherent. You see the benefits of choosing a right title for your blog; it can save you lots of effort.

Sachin Smart Tyagi.
