Profile-Chhota Atya

Got this in one of the mail forwards and realized (actually told by one of the hole-digger) very late about the matching profile of one the members-Chhota Atya we call him.

What we did last summer (week)

so these are some of the members of hole diggers community trying to pull out the earth what seemed to be a rock. Many stones were turned around and rocks crushed to sand to reach this stage.

[What others members have to say?]

Hole digging accomplished

The hole-digger community finished digging their holes today with the completion of all theory exams. Yet final hole is left to be dug in next two days. In next two days we'll see variety of whole being dug with lots of aesthetic and contemporary touch attached to it.

We have a record here

One of the hole digger has broken record of being a girl friend of so many guys in our community.

Well don't take it other way.

As an interaction designer it becomes very important for us to play scenarios explaining the use of our product/design we propose. Only through these hypothetical scenarios which depict some of the real life situations we can explain the feasibility of our work and output.

So we have a lady who has played girlfriend of most of the guys in scenarios.

Information Theory

Shanon has proposed Information Theory and said that uncertainity means information.

A point in the image which is uncertain and dynamic has most of the information concealed in it.
These are called information rich points.
So here is one of them.

So what's so big in this?
Wait for a day and you'll know.

Note: no photoshoping has been done except the title

Rarest of moment

Today was the day when one moon was eclipsed by other and it looked as if a major merger took place.
Witness the event by looking at the photo.

Quote of the day!!!

A conference is a gathering of important people who individually can't do anything but together can decide that nothing can be done.

Makes you wonder why the IxD students are in the conference room a lot...

1942- A Love Story ;)

2 already gone...

only 6 holediggers left!!

Hole diggers at work

So now when we have got our concepts and ideas on paper it's time that we give them a form.
So it's prototypin phase now.

All the hole-diggers have figured out what hole to dig and how much to dig!?!?

Ohk no more text, here comes photos.

So we have birthday of two hole-diggers today.
Chinmoy and Girija.

Had a great bash yesterday night in which Chinmoy did get some real bumps from our precise hole-digger Atish.
And Girija was quite happy with the kind of gift she got yesterday. She has dug her hole ultimately ;-)

Characters' characteristics you saw the get to know the real hole-diggers...
don't be shocked by what you read!!

"I have thought of where to dig."
Then just casually passing by others "Where r u digging? Did you find anything?"
Not to touch till the night before and then frantically digs however possible overnight.

"This sounds interesting."
Starts digging around and after some time realizes "Bahot jyada kar liya lekin kuch nahi mila. Need to stop baba."
Never lets the audience peek where all she has dug. Gives a short and smart perspective.

Instead of actually digging in there goes to the Media Lab, opens photoshop and makes a perfect visual of the hole on computer with all the depth effects and all,finally shows the same.
Everyone is astounded at his work!

"Guys first we need to DISCUSS.what will we get if we dig here. Now ****, you do this. And ****, you take this and start digging here. Main abhi 10 minute mein aata hoon.
And then dude is missing for some time, and is finally found with the foreign exchange female from Madagascar...

Decides where to dig...goes on.and reaches beneath someone else's hole..realises he's wandered a lot. Moves in other direction.again reaches another's hole.
Wonders what's happening. sits seady.. thinks for sometime...
Presses F9 and starts writing the code for "how to dig a hole by not reaching other's"
Finally gets appreciated for the code and also for digging so much!

Team: "We might find something if we dig here."
Arun: "Then lets not dig here yaar. What will we learn then? Lets dig somewhere else and present whatever we find there."

Others take all the tools to him shovels, spades, trowels etc. And explain to him how to dig.
"Aachhe se saamjha naahi..ek baar phir saamjhana.."

Starts digging anywhere. Finds something. Then proceeds to explain in his presentation how he calculated about finding that exact thing (which he found by chance) and then exactly dug 3.7 feet and found the thing.

Digs a Very SMALL hole. And explains why she did so starting with "I don't know why... but I feel so and so and so I think...."

the vey familiar accent but a new entity...

"saaply of oxygen... "
"blaad bhessels in our body...."

yes... despite being in interaction design we all are having these biology lectures in this module...
todays attraction was... human ear..

and one more thing which the prof was testing "AVERAGE PAIN THRESHOLD", it feels really sleepy to be a guinea pig.. ;) :P

ps: an interesting finding -> One of us oscillates more than others !!
