Iqbal is going to stop the third person narrative right now. I love reading good books and eating good food. I love fiction, cultural anthropology, technology, marketing, management *gasp* but you the lean kind of management that makes small businesseses successful *phew*. I love digital media, digital art and absolutely love gadgets and computer games. I am a beleiver in the idea that love and compassion trumps all.
