April 13, 2022 in Remote

“Man Shares Hack To Appear Online During WFH”. Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you must have seen variations of this headline ad nauseam over the last two years. Mouse tied to Roomba to appear in motion, GIFs of people perpetually nodding to make them seem like they’re paying attention. A quick internet search will reveal tons of these hacks, including viral TikTok content (reviewed by YouTubers chasing, you guessed it, virality).

December 1, 2017 in Inbound

Your pirate flag is flying high, showing off who you are and what you’re capable of. Infamy is just around the corner; how terrific it will be to be the target of so many! Your crew has been carrying out your orders, revelling in the adventure. You were confident of the course you charted, your exciting quest for bounty. But it’s been months now, and that bounty seems like an elusive dream. The map you were following seems to be useless, and you’re in the middle of nowhere.

You just have to say the word thali and every Mumbaikar worth their salt will tell you about the five best thali joints you don’t know in Bombay.
