I’m Akshat. I’m a proud hacker and geek. Through this blog, I like to talk about things that interest me, such as technology, computers, food, music, books, politics, social issues, privacy and personal freedom.

I earn my living working at a corporate research lab. Life outside work comprises mostly of pursuing my other interests, meeting up with friends, dining out and exploring New York City.

I have shamelessly borrowed the title of this blog from a song by Pink Floyd, which is one of my favourite bands. I think it is a good description of the world we live in — or at least my interpretation of it.
