This is more of a personal update not a lot of tech news so you can skip if you want to.
The picture you see is of Jawwad Farid’s book reboot I could not find a better picture to depict what I will be doing again.
Long time in past I was a happy employee doing my corporate job and happy at my achievements of next rank, next bonus and new 22 inch monitor. My bad luck (or good luck ) that a group of entrepreneurs started blogging at the time I was kind of getting bored and thinking of next logical step that every one around me was taking (getting an MBA). One of the best tag a blog discussion that totally pushed me over the edge were these (read in sequence) This was between Jawwad Farid, Osama Hashmi and Adnan
Thanks to all of the people above, I left my job and went crazy (or you could say entrepreneurial ) had a roller coster ride for two years, blasted all my fears and grew new ones, shattered down my walls of safety and my risk aversion techniques. However not being brave enough I crawled back into the safety of my corporate job.
Life was smooth again, fixed timings, on time pays benefits back to 22 inch monitors with un interrupted power supply and awesome internet connection, again a couple of years passed in which Osama did me the honor of handing greenwhite.org, which to be honest I have done an awful job of maintaining and posting.
But as they say once a crook always a crook, so again I am jumping of the luxury liner onto a leaky ship, will I survive I don’t know am I excited you bet, am I afraid sure. This time besides the people above who always remain my inspiration of jumping the first time a few more have been added like Khurram Samad of Geni team and Muhammad Ishaq of Kahaf, I might thanking them or cursing them in time to come.
So enough about my personal issues if you have been reading till here thanks what it means fr greenwhite is that hopefully you will see more updates and coverage, from time to time you will have to listen to the rants of a person who is in it himself (yes thats me). There are some other in pipeline things which we standing still which I hope to move forward, since the community which was green and white does not have the same vibrance it used to, small part of it is to the fact the the golden age (as I would call it) of startup blogging has almost passed us Jawwad does not write for startup world as often as he used to, Osama is gone to polish his product for launch , Adnan Haider has also kind of gone away after lootmar.com adventure, Really Virtual is a celebrity who reported Osama Bin Laden’s air strike and is using his new found fame for good purpose, Mohtashim’s ITTazee also gets fewer posts, so all in all the echo system is down. Will see what we can do to bring it up. Will need your help too, since this time I would like this platform to flourish again for my sake I guess my effort will be sincere.
Wish me luck, and your input would as always be very welcome. Also forgive any grammar mistakes it was more of a though flow than a blog post, do not have the heart to re read it.
