Hi, my name is Shrikant Joshi.

I really don't know where to start...

I started blogging in the early 2000s. Back then, I used to write short-stories under a (rather cringeworthy) pseudonym. Eventually, I tried my hand at writing some non-fiction stuff as well - web 2.0, was all the rage, back then. So, I penned a few thoughts at Corporate Spices - this was the first time I felt comfortable sharing my writing under my own name. Then, came the social networks. It began with MySpace, then Orkut, then Facebook, Twitter, and finally LinkedIn. The list is actually rather long, but here's a weak-ish attempt at collating them all: about.me.

As my scattered existence increased, so did the necessity for collecting and collating all these identities in one place. And thus, 42 Quirks was born...

But why the name - '42 Quirks'?

According to "The Hitch-hikers' guide to the Galaxy," written by Douglas N. Adams, the answer to Life, the Universe and Everything is 42.

These days, I am working as a Radio Jockey with 93.5 Red FM, Pune. Occasionally, I also try slapping bits of code together and, sometimes they stick. Python is my preferred language of choice, and I haven't really found enough reason and/or motivation for learning anything else. Here're some of my most recent 'achievements': HashPix, @updt_me, and voteyatra.

Things I Love:

Music. Reading. Writing. Films. The Internet.

And that's just the tip of the iceberg!
