Yet Another Software Junk | മറ്റൊരു പാഴ്‌ജന്മം

If I were Thomas Alva Edison, you might be still in Darkness.

...the best ever we could !!!
yet just runners-up ?!!

hence we missed THE HAT-TRICK :-(

And I hope that you need not put much effort to find the theme; Our company celebrates 30 years.We may say (forever) that we made this "Pookkalam". (I suspect that winners could say the same with the same pride)

However... it was "yet another" great day in this company as a part of organizing committe for Onam-06.

I never thought about a patent idea in my life. But one idea struck us while we were sipping a cup of coffee. I, Anish (He has already one Patent) were discussing about cable technology and our team in general. We were sad that we are not getting any core development work. As everyone say "necessity is the mother of invention". it is very much true. We wanted a development work badly and we are frustrated with a few delays in the work. hence a new idea (at least for us).

[The details of our idea can not be disclosed due to a few confidential reasons]

Our Client have an option to submit patent ideas. The procedure to get a US patent though our client is that first they have to review the idea and if they are ok, the idea will be submitted to US patent committee.

But review-committee found that a part of our idea has a prior art. They found a few limitations too. Yet they agreed that we may develop it inside our network. They were happy to see the cost cutting method suggested along with the fast recovery operations in the idea. And they agree that it is an awardable idea. Coool... But the problem with this award is specifically for their employees :-( We are just their partners in their engineering operations.

However we will get a token money from our company and of course we will get THE dream work we were looking for.

This is a good reason to violate a my self-blog-ban I guess. After stopping the blog for 10 days, I got time to think about an 'awardable' idea ;-) So again I am going to sleep mode. let us see whether we 'll get any patentable idea or not !!! :-)

I am violating my own rule... to blog again.
But I have a reason to share which is more than technical, I guess.

I have learned a few things on this Independence Day.

1) Don't argue with somebody. There is no use.

your 'wrong' might be 'right' for somebody else.
Maximum you may go for two replies with your arguments.
Still you couldn’t convince, stop it.

2) email is a powerful tool for communication;
But you can not set your emotions in it properly.
So take care to control your anger in email.
It will get multiplied as soon as it reaches on the other end.

3) Keep the same in mind while reading an email too;
other person may not knowing 2nd learning.
So.. try to divid the amount of anger in the email into half.

4) Respect others opinion, appreciate it if you agree with it.

5) Don't worry if you didn't get the same appreciation;
other person may not know about the 4th learning.

6) Avoid personal attack to win. (common law while arguing)

7) Ignore the personal attack.

I have done a huge mistake. I forgot all these things while emailing.
Result: lost a blog-friend for an unnecessary reason.

Return to sleep mode.
