I do not read Fiction. So far, only 4 novels, I have read, "Rage of Angels" (wonderful!), "Bloodline" and "Abduction" by Robin Cook and listened to "Life of Pi" recently! I have heard much about this Booker Prize winning work of Yann Martel, But Life of Pi ý When I heard the audio book I was amazed by the breathtaking journey of a 16-year-old Indian boy with a Bengal tiger, after a tragic sinking of a cargo ship. Its truly stunning, delightful experience of reading. Still, the images of lifeboat and the flying fishes, the zebra, hyena, orang-utan are lingering in my mind. And that unbelievable sand less island ý composed of algae and trees and mea cats! In this a character says, ýThis is a story which will make you believe in the existence of God!ý True, this is beyond human comprehension and belief that this boy could survive for more than 200 days in the company of wild animals in the Pacific! It is the triumph of human spirit (with the blessings of God) against all the odds. I also heard that Manoj N Shyamalan is writing a screenplay to direct this as his next film, Is that true? If you are going to read, you might find hard to put this down! Can a reader reasonably ask for anything more? Strongly Recommended!
As you know, Flickr uses an algorithm to choose the best 500 photos every day and post them on Flickr Explore page. This mesmerizing collection is done auto' magic 'ally by an "interestingness algorithm" which rates each photo how good it is. It does by considering lot of factors such as who views, who comments and who favourites a photo. It is not most views, most favourites or most comments. Here's what Flickr says: "There are lots of things that make a photo 'interesting' (or not) in the Flickr. Where the clickthroughs are coming from; who comments on it and when; who marks it as a favorite; its tags and many more things which are constantly changing. Interestingness changes over time, as more and more fantastic photos and stories are added to Flickr." As I tried to crack down this interestingness puzzle, I figured out certain shortcuts by which you can get to the Flickr Explore page. Get this basics straight . Favourites matter m
