Nothing much to write of today since I’ve been pretty busy at work but there is something that kind of amused me and yet made me realize again how much people’s prejudices and preconceptions are at work. Scope got mentioned on a bulletin board a couple of days ago and one of the people there mentioned the fact that Scope was last updated in July and then they went on to make a remark about whether I was in hiding :p I assume that this is because I have an Arabic name (of course, it’s beside the point that I am not even from the Middle East but from Sri Lanka which is in South Asia …) and can only wonder at how easily people jump to conclusions and are prone to smear others with a universal tar brush. But then again, I guess what can you expect? People will be people :p
