About SoulSoup

with one comment

What is SoulSoup?
Blog about E-Learning, Usability, Knowledge Management, Learning & New Media design and any other knee jerk reaction. A place to consolidate my wanton thoughts.
If you love/hate it too much, drop me a mail at anol@soulsoup.net

Started with the ’soul’ purpose to serve me and myself as a personal knowledge management tool. Soon I realized a blog is more than a PKM tool. First I started with Movable Type engine hosted with a free service provider mBlog (history now – get the story here!). Now thanks to James Farmer, I am enjoying Wordpress and the new home for SoulSoup at Incsub.

Why SoulSoup?
Honestly, I don’t know! There was some far fetched meaning of the name I thought of initially, but now I can’t remember! Easiest explanation – the name sounded cool, and the domain name was available (www.soulsoup.net). Well, if you still want to try that hard – here it goes

Soul:
The animating and vital principle in humans, credited with the faculties of thought, action, and emotion and often conceived as an immaterial entity.
OR
A strong, deeply felt emotion conveyed by a speaker, a performer, or an artist.

Soup:
A liquid food prepared from meat, fish, or vegetable stock combined with various other ingredients and often containing solid pieces. Basically- easily digestible health food
OR
A liquid rich in organic compounds and providing favorable conditions for the emergence and growth of life forms: primordial soup.
OR
Chaos!

Be creative now, do your permutation-combination-rip-mix and come up with the meaning yourself.

Who am I?

I am glad you asked at last! I am Anol Bhattacharya, Indian citizen living and working in GetIT Singapore, an e-Learning custom content and consultancy provider. In my previous life I worked as information architect for web media. I can keep on writing about myself, but what’s the point – won’t you rather like to read my posts?

What Runs SoulSoup?

  • Blog Engine: Wordpress
  • Hosting and morale booster: Incsub
  • Online RSS reader and Blogroll: Bloglines
  • Desktop RSS reader: FeedDemon
  • Desktop Blogging tool: W.Bloggar
  • And lot’s of time stolen from other important things of my life.

Enjoy!
