Ramesh's piece of The Web
wherein `first contact' is established...

This is my web page. If you are looking for my (more frequently updated) weblog, it's right this way.

This site is currently, as we software folks say, in beta. The first stable release is expected sometime soon. Very very soon. Some of the links are broken right now as the site is being built (note the clever use of the present progressive), but are, nevertheless, rapidly becoming live - at truly evolutionary pace. So you know what that means. No? Neither do I.


I value accessibility and user control highly. This site has an accessibility statement that lists all navigational aids, access keys, standards compliance, validator services and some external links to accessibility resources. You might want to read the accessibility statement for this website.

Me, my technological milieu and my miscellaneous madness

Hello, and welcome to my corner of the Wild Wild Web. If you think the Web does not have a "corner", then you're right and well, you're just welcome. (So, what's new?)

If you don't know where to start, you can have a look at the FAQ. You may be interested in reading my very erratically updated  web log. The best way is probably to just fudge around: read what I have to say, and then point at it, laugh at it, comment on it perhaps, and maybe ignore it.

Consider this my playground, a laboratory even; where random ideas are baked, t(e/a)sted and possibly defenestrated in the end. In that sense, nothing on this site is permanent (including this statement). I put things up, throw some down, and let the others stay where they are.

And to keep things even, you can always give me a piece of your mind right back. This way, please.


The whatabouts and whereabouts

Hmm, let's see. This site is my personal web site on the Web. Because it is that, I put up a lot of stuff, for lack of a better word, that I find interesting (including stuff that I have personally authored). You might find something interesting if you hang around for a while. But then again, you might not.


Copyrights and originals

This site's copyright policy is perhaps so sophisticated that it can be jargonised thus: `None.'

Everything here is copyrighted, though no known rights are reserved. You are free to keep the originals (in which case, you would do best by leaving the copyright alone).

You are not, repeat not, authorised to even think about infringing upon this passionately protected copyright framework.

Of course, I'm just kidding. This site has some rights reserved, as detailed in the Creative Commons License. To be more specific, under an Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike Creative Commons Deed License.


What's in here, anyway?

Bits. Lots of 'em. Disguised. As bytes. Armed. With electrons. Dane-gerr-ouss.



To paraphrase McSweeneys:

I will put some things "up," so to speak, on some days, and on other days, I will not put things up. Whether or not I put things up will depend largely on whether, on a particular day, I have anything to put up.
