    Pretty good 🙂 last few seconds audio is not heard.

    my 2 cents on video interviews as an avid CWS reader and fan 🙂 :
    1) i think people are more clear and crisper when they put things in written format
    2)speaking extempore.. they might not give accurate information
    3)writing answers they will take more time, they can edit many times and give the best answer
    4)and they might talk too much off the topic ..

    But advantage with video is its more engaging media, you can interject to and make it a bit more interactive and entertaining. Doing video interviews is probably a lot less time consuming to you as well as the author as they are done in half hour.
    But the quality might not be as high as them putting in time to think and put their thoughts in words.
    Als the USP of the blog is its content rather than a means for entertainment, so content/information can be given more importance 🙂

    First things first, a big hand to you, Sundar for getting the video interviews started,

    Mr Mukesh Sharma’s recap of his first experience at job after college is definitely something I identify with, and I am exactly at the same stage now. Every work day is a big struggle, and many a time i end up bungling things. Mr Mukesh’s account fills me with the confidence that these things will be overcome and one day things will start going smoothly.

    Am curious to know about his theatrical pursuits, and will be on the look out for the next post.

    Good show Sundar, keep them coming.
