an angry man with computer

වසකින් තුන් අඩක්,

සොච්චමකට උකස් කර,

ලද දැනුම අනුන් වෙනුවෙන් වැය කරන,

තාක්ශනික දාසයෙක් ලෙස

පෙනේදෝ ඔබට මා !

කප්පරක් වෙහෙසිලා,

නිමවන සොෆ්ට්වෙයා,

මහ මිලට අලෙවි වෙයි,

දාසයෝ හැමදාම්

අඩුමිලට ක්බ්හුරවත්

මහරැයේ , දහවලේ,

දහඩියත් නොවැගුරුවට,

අඩු මිලට කබුරුවන

මම වගේ දාසයෝ,

සිය ගනන් දැකිය හැක…

Blogging / Freedom / Governmental web sites

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on July 17, 2007

I found it extremely hard to access wordpress.com for some time. Thats why i was unable to blog for some time. Today blogging has been interpreted as freedom of “speech”. In the future e world bloggers would be a key group involved in developing public opinion. So i hope that network admins and other authorities would have to take that in to consideration in the future.

We , at Sri Lanka had to discuss about electronic media freedom when the prominent tamil news site http://www.tamilnet.com was blocked by major ISP’s including SLT. We cant blame tamilnet , but government should have their own powerful online propaganda tool. Most of the government web sites are static , erroneous and old.

There are some exceptions such as BOI (www.boi.lk) , but most of the web sites are monuments. I was involved in one such project (shame to speak about that one!) in development of a web portant for the ministry of tourism and agriculture of the western provincial council. It was hosted under a sub domain of http://www.wpc.gov.lk/ and is no longer existing. The web host (e-wis) as i suppose charged 100,000 Rs and the development charges were also 100,000 Rs… (dont be envious i got only Rs 5000 for developing this ‘web portal’ == weeks of coding , proof reading and hard work valued !) by professor who knows next to nothing about IT got most of the money .. 🙂

I think that we should not create online ‘tombstones’ for government web sites. The government needs talented IT professionals who can use e-government to find solutions for the problems of people.!

Deyata Kirula Exibition

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on February 23, 2007

HI Folks , I had a change of visiting the Deyata Kirula exibition which was held in commemoration of independance. This was held at the BMICH. Most interesting stalls for me were the Forces stalls and the Cyber crime division of the police department. The other interesting section was media stalls. However they were extremly crowded. I could jump in the the “Sirasa Newsfirst” stall and read english news. Have no hopes of being a “communicator”.

The pictures show the guns displayed at the army and navy stalls. The second picture is an image of the deadly weapon MBRL (Multi Barrel Rocket Launcher)

Independance Day !!

Posted by sadeepa palliyaguru on February 16, 2007

Sri Lanka Celebrated another independance day on Feb 4th!

This is how we celebrated independance.

As a tradition we hoist national flag at our home. For this year , Chanaka (Mr. Bones, Chaa) and Nadee (they are my brothers) they hoisted national flags. Here are the pics!!

As a Sri Lankan , I wish that we would be able to “liberate” our country from the terrorists this year !
