90% of everything I overhear at coffee shops relates to startups/early business or business motivation.

@zainabbawa Happy Budday! Party hard!

@jackerhack @jonathandmello Yeah, it’s hard to put such things in words. Hope we haven’t made it worse @saneefneef. :)

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jonathandmello Sounds good but feels incomplete, esp. if you wish to cater to the perspectives of both producer and consumer. @jackerhack

@jackerhack Both products and services can have a well defined brand and expectations. So I guess this ain’t the distinguishing factor.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack A conference is a “meeting”, which IMHO would be something intangible, and thus a service.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack Definition of “tangible” won’t be “touch” in the digital world. I think something that can be “perceived” e.g. code, website…

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack Eg. twitter is a product, but sold (or provided) as a service. @jonathandmello @saneef @rasagy

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack Nope, I didn’t mean that. You can design a product and sell it as either a product or a service@jonathandmellol@saneefe@rasagygy

via Twitter for Mac in reply to jackerhack

@jackerhack IMO you sell a service and not a product. Also, I think a product is tangible. @jonathandmello @saneef @rasagy

@SirLoondry Also, this guy knows a lot about logins. Here’s a 2 year old post blog.instapaper.com/post/2318776738zEec

@SirLoondry Comes down to making the best compromise. 2 options is bad, perhaps worse than forcing password. Power users can stay signed in.

@atti_cus @dharmeshG The few times I’ve been to Nizamuddin, I’ve found the food to be mostly mediocre except beef galautis at a street stall

Two days well spent @metarefresh. Felt amazing to shake hands with folks who until two days back were merely twitter handles.

@pandorazjukebox @arvthampi Neither I am, but earlier please! :(
Lots of things before I leave tomorrow. 9 latest?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to pandorazjukebox

@soganmageshwar Thanks! Say hi if you’re around. :)

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to soganmageshwar

@pandorazjukebox @arvthampi Aaah too late. Busy all of Fri and Sat. Leaving on Sunday evening. Will let you know if Sun morning is possible.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to pandorazjukebox

@rasagy Oh! We’ll return 24th (Sun) night.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to rasagy

@pandorazjukebox @arvthampi Catchup sometime? Anyone else I know who is in Bangalore?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to pandorazjukebox

@rasagy I hope so too. :)
Also, we should catch up some day.

@arvthampi @pandorazjukebox Any of you still in Bangalore?

via Tweetbot for iOS

@rashmiswamy Thulp is done. CTR is on my list this time. Lets go to one of the places you listed when @rungta is here.

via Tweetbot for iOS

@rashmiswamy other places include Ice & Spice, MTR.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to rashmiswamy

@rashmiswamy I love Matteo, but last I checked they did not have *any* power outlet.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to rashmiswamy

@rashmiswamy I am unable to resist the places I already know of, and end up running short of time to try new ones. Must change things.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to rashmiswamy

@gonsalves_r Any place that is well connected. Will head to Doddanekundi in the evening.

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to gonsalves_r

@gonsalves_r Also, can you recommend a peaceful café to work from? Power source is a must. /cc:@rashmiswamyy

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to gonsalves_r

@gonsalves_r Absolutely! I’ll be going on a trip tomorrow, back on Tue morning. @rungta too arrives on Tue. Suggest a plan?

Someone should drag officers to Bangalore and show them how passionately BMTC AC bus conductors (esp. BIAS) do their duty.

The pricing at the Delhi Airport outlet of Starbucks is the same as the city outlet. Pretty aggressive!

@ap00rv You’re missing the big picture. You want to pay less because you didn’t get full service, but that is not a solution to the problem.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv If you were ok sacrificing on comfort, you wouldn’t have been complaining.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv Yes, there are ways, but they are rarely looked into. Writing on the book is the best way as you are *most expressive* at that time.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv Depends on the route. On some routes AC buses are more frequent.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv Even if we ignore the no-ventilation problem in AC buses, what you’re suggesting is not as straight-forward to implement.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv Windows don’t open in that bus. DTC have a maintenance contract with the manufacturers. Either they fix the issue or compensate DTC.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv If you’re still on the bus, ask for the complaint book from the conductor and report the issue.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv However this does not happen because passengers would rather cover the distance faster than wait for the next bus.

via Twitter for Mac in reply to ap00rv

@ap00rv No. They are supposed to park the bus on the side and put you on another AC bus. Same as how it works if the bus breaks down.

If @StarbucksIndia keep doing such wonderful interiors & stick to their current pricing, they’re gonna breeze past every other coffee chain.

sunainak Really Dilli walo, lining up outside Starbucks? Very wannabe. You think Americans would do the same if Roshan di Kulfi opened there?

rakeshrach Knowing how to wireframe or photoshop doesn’t make one a designer just as typing doesn’t make one a writer. We must grow beyond our tools.

@manasmohan Chandigarh is anything but rural Punjab. I visited Ludhiana/Kila Raipur. Also, when’s Goonj?

via Tweetbot for iOS in reply to manasmohan

Rural Punjab, countryside sports, rustic fast-food, random stunts, sidesplitting commentary and some awesome chicken. Good weekend.

@zainabbawa Sure! Till when are you in town, and which days are you free? @rungta @anjakovacs
