So the day is finally here. Pigeons just became the first animal species after humans to carry cell phones and author their own blogs. Engadget reports:
Some researchers at the University of California are giving 20 pigeons the mobile phone hookup to monitor pollution over San Jose. Not only will the pigeons carry air pollution sensors, GPS tracking, and phone communication in their little pigeon backpacks, but they'll also carry a camera to snap pics, which will be sent along with air quality text messages to their pigeon blog.

I think it's only a matter of time when they go on to achieve other things we thought weren't pigeon-doable. I always knew Google was way ahead of its time.

Hi Manu,

It's been quite a while since you posted, how have you been.

I enjoy your posts especially the ones on technology, your understanding of technology and its analysis through economics is excellent and I have rarely seen anyone (atleast from Indian tech space ) with such thought process.
