    The Google'd Architect..


    You know what i hate much about these days? is the overgrown Google-supplied, Google-dependent culture that we're becoming (if not already are).. These days, any half-minded homosapien with a 3G connection and 3.7" screen is a scholar, a scientist, a philosopher, a religious debater (the internet is flooded with these copy&paste zombies) and, of course, my personal favorite: Designer Architects..


    Now that today's blogging intention is becoming obvious (assuming the title didn't give you a hint), make the jump..

    Just thought you should know..

    Hello, silent reader(s) from beyond the monitors.. I come with news..


    For many of you, it might've been a bless, but for the some of you who did notice (and care enough to follow my tweets), am not as active as you might expect (or fear, based on some touchy hate mail)..


    I did tweet a while back about the possibility of cancellation of my usual TechUpdates, but am not so sure yet.. Generally, i think it will stay.. One thing that made me postpone the whole thing for weeks now, is the piles of unread RSS feeds that increase beyond control (350+ so far), so am thinking i might just ditch them, maybe highlight a few, and start a new update.. I'll take your silence as a nod of approval..


    I've been quiet for so long, and i owe you guys an explanation of some sort..

    a Ramadan Meditation.. Sort of..



    Every year, Ramadan has it's usual share of food-frenzy (the face stuffing event of the year, ironically), the silly flat-minded TV shows, and of course, the short nerve endings of everyone who uses "Fasting" as a coat-hanger for being jerks..

    I seriously can't find the Ramadan i had when i was 10 years old.. Maybe it's nostalgia or maybe it's the sweet memories of yesteryear, but Ramadan is becoming a month where it reflects how sad we've become, How shallow we've become, and how far are we obsessing over the "physical" in a "spiritual" month..

    I had a loud conversation the other day with a friend of mine who seems to wear a thobe, a hat, a miswak and subha (Islamic rosary) because he doesn't feel Ramadan if he doesn't do such and such.. In other cases, we can't feel it's Ramadan until we cook the same fat-saturated food every single year, drink the same extremely-sweetened drinks every single year, and assume (in some dark corner of our brains) that dressing in a certain way would make Ramadan feel more "Ramadan'ish"..

    Am not saying we're completely messed up, am just saying that we're putting too much into a month that we're losing touch of it's essence more and more..
