Dennis RitchieI can’t even imagine that I would get a job if there would be no UNIX, no Linux, no Windows, no graphical application, no sound driver, no GUI based tools, no programming languages and still we would be struggling with binary and machine level language.  There would not be computerized electronic gadgets no iPhone, iPad etc.

Thanks to Dennis Ritchie who not only founded C programming language and co-founded UNIX with Ken Thompson which made network sharing easier, but gave birth to many successor languages like C++, Java, Perl and many more high level languages but made our life more smooth and technologically advanced.

He died on 12th October 2011 at the age of 70. He was very famous respected computer hacker (computer genius literally). His contribution will always be remembered and implemented till we will use computer or computing based tools. He was also known as drm (Dennis MacAlistair Ritchie)

Manu ZachariaThis 21st century has its own saga. Internet users have grown exponentially and because of that online fraud, cyber crimes, hacking have become even more dangerous and vulnerable when compared to physical thefts. The thing is only firewall, anti-virus et can’t prevent all cyber incidents. We need awareness on Information Security.


He is the man who first started general awareness in India on Information security and we call it an “InfoSec day”.  He is none other than that Manu Zacharia who is Information Security evangelist with more than sixteen years of professional experience.
I met him and got a chance to share few words  face to face in 2008, when there was 3 days lecture cum workshop  on  Information Security and hacking by him. As I was the Event head so , I had to be always in touch with him. (It was an honor to meet him personally) and he is my security guru too.
