Hello. It has been nearly a month since my last blog post. The things seem to have dried up, I know, but the dissertation is way more important than blogging. However, wait a minute, things are about to change here. I’ll tell you why. Last week, the famous Times magazine released the list of the 100 most influential people in the world for 2012. Pete Cashmore was in it. Boom. Wait, wait a minute. Let me get this straight. How can a young man from Scotland, chilling in his bed, in his shorts, typing away madly on his computer at age 19, end up seven years later being one of the most influential people in 2012? And getting up there all by doing what I’m doing now, blogging. (Ha, like a boss). At first, it might seem a joke, but it isn’t.  Pete Cashmore is the founder of, a Technorati Top 10 blog and one of the most visited websites in the world. It all started with a one man show back in 2005 from the small town of Aberdeen in Scotland, and I personally have being following his blog since the past 5 years. I have actually seen Mashable and Pete Cashmore grow from a nothing to something of a 200 million dollar company (CNN is in talks to buy for $200 million, yes a blog for tooh-hundred-million!) So, it looks like I will have to reconsider my hobby, and start taking things more seriously, because I believe, blogging, it works, it really does.
