Mangos at home

Alright hopefully this blog is back! It was taken down multiple times by some folks over in Russia. Hope it doesn’t happen anymore. I am going to start posting more often just so that this place doesn’t get all dusty like it has in the past few years.



Radical Ideas · posted by vaibhav bhawsar Jun 14, 2011

“Have you ever thought that radical ideas threaten institutions and then become institutions and in turn reject radical ideas which threaten institutions?”



Process · posted by vaibhav bhawsar May 04, 2011

Structure of process

Evolutionary process is a creative process (& vice versa). You step through iterations which includes, stepping back and forth, and moving sideways. You take a little from here and a little from there. You add something new. Often you discard. You make conclusions and connections, allowing the primitive idea to be something else. You diverge and converge. You arrive at and use similes, analogies, allegories, idioms, archetypes, metaphors as you step through the process and there comes a point when you have to stop in order to gather and realize your trajectories. So you stop at a creation. This creation only holds your mind momentarily, your mind gasps for breath and the flight continues.


Javascript output in textmate · posted by vaibhav bhawsar Feb 28, 2011

This is pretty useful when experimenting with javascript in textmate. The following command snippet allows one to run a javascript file in textmate and print output to the textmate browser window. Create a command in a bundle and assign a shortcut (eg. cmd+r). You will need to have JSC on your local path.

If you instead want an interactive console check this

#!/usr/bin/env ruby
require ENV["TM_SUPPORT_PATH"] + "/lib/tm/executor"
require ENV["TM_SUPPORT_PATH"] + "/lib/tm/save_current_document"
TextMate::Executor.make_project_master_current_document"jsc", "-i", ENV["TM_FILEPATH"])


Twitter live stream cacophonies · posted by vaibhav bhawsar Jul 16, 2010

Experimenting with capturing live twitter stream and using it to trigger sounds as tweets get posted. IT'S A MESS OUT THERE!

RIP Marianne Armacher. Just learnt that you are gone. I wish I could have seen you play.


Peaks and Troughs · posted by vaibhav bhawsar Aug 17, 2009

An amusing example of peaks and troughs in the number of visits for the India, China and Japan wikipedia pages. Weekends are troughs! I never knew of this pattern. Almost every page on wikipedia has this visit pattern.
