I am a lifelong technologist who has stayed away from management all the 30 years I have been at IBM as a computer scientist (IBM Fellow since 1997 and as the IBM India Chief Scientist during 6/2006-01/2009). I am passionate about promoting the benefits of long-term technical careers, especially in emerging countries like India. I love to travel, seeing places, taking photos and meeting people all over the world. More can be found about me at http://bit.ly/cmohan Every now and then I hope to record here my mumbles (Tamil word for it is monagals) on different topics. Of course, the opinions expressed here are my personal ones and they are not necessarily shared by my employer or my colleagues. Feedback welcome!
