Launching My Personal Website

Hello there! If you are reading this post, chances are you are on my Facebook or LinkedIn profiles and know me well already. In that case, you might not find anything new on this website, but I still appreciate that you decided to have a peek. Please drop a comment if you have any suggestions to improve the site.

I decided to launch a personal website on May 23rd, 2020, when Facebook decided to block my profile out of the blue. I guess it was a mistake because they returned my profile the next day. But it got me thinking, how simple it is for Facebook to control what I have to say. So I started working on the website right away. Like my other projects, I only worked on this website on weekends, so it took me a month to get it ready.

I also wanted to give a special thanks to Kasun Sameera from my Synopsys gang, who took the only headshot of me, which looks good enough to put on the website. These photos are from 2017 in Manali, India. Also, a special shout-out to my pretty wife Hasantha, for pushing me to complete the site.

What's next? A lot of changes... The site needs more changes in both functionality and graphics. Also I'm planning to add tech articles on RF Systems, Signal Processing, and Electromagnetism. I already write lessons on chiphackers.com, which is my website focused on Digital Design and Computer Architecture. So tech articles on those fields will not be posted here.

That's about it. Thank you again for visiting. 🙂

Your time is limited, so don't waste it living someone else's life. Don't be trapped by dogma - which is living with the results of other people's thinking. Don't let the noise of others' opinions drown out your own inner voice. And most important, have the courage to follow your heart and intuition.
