More About the Author

Kalpanik S. was born in India, or thereabouts, a long time ago. OK, so it wasn't really all that long ago, but it's not very recent either.

He came to the USA on a fellowship from the University of California in late eighties to do graduate level studies in Computer Science. After completing his studies, Kalpanik chose to stay back and serve the Software and Internet industries at West Coast's High Tech corridor - Silicon Valley, Seattle, and Southern California

He has been writing a journal about his "journey" through the US from the time he landed at the San Francisco Airport more than twenty years ago. Finally, some years ago, he finally gathered enough courage to get it published. Boy, are we glad he did!

Kalpanik (pronounced as KAAL-pah-nik) means "imaginary" in Hindi. Yes, it's a pen name. Author uses a pen name to allow him to separate his literary identity from his professional identity.

Format: Kindle Edition
This is an odd little book. Ostensibly it is a tale of an immigrant's journey through the US higher education system and on to a career in the technology sector. In reality, it plays out more like the libidinous musings of someone who thinks his rather common journey is somehow profoundly special. It's very hard to tell who the target audience is. My guess is that it's foreign-born RAs in US grad programs who majored in computer science. In other words, a very, very small target audience.

Also, if this book was not self-published, the editor should try another line of work.

This book is just a record of the author's career history in the digital world as he sees it. Not much to chew on.

...it's a bit too descriptive. I think it could have a more personal approach, but it's easy reading. Anyway, I enjoyed reading it.
