The wailing sound of a dial-up modem was one of the most exciting sounds of my teenage years.
Hi! I’m Gautam Ramdurai.
I grew up in a small town in eastern India. My windows to the world were two television channels and a national newspaper that was delivered a day late to my town. All that changed on a humid summer afternoon in 1997 when I walked into a small place called an ‘Internet Café’. That day I learned that access to information is a powerful force. Since then I’ve been truly, madly, deeply in love with the Internet.
I’m a Strategist at the Google Creative Lab. I spend my time understanding people, following culture and connecting ideas to solve problems. I work with and learn from some really smart people. I love what I do.
I have given up on long-term hobbies and taken up everyday obsessions. But I will always think that I am not spending enough time reading comic books.
I would love to talk to you. Hit me up if you have answers to my questions, like what you see here, have an opinion about it or disagree with something.
FYI, my biggest claim to fame is GIFbombing Björk.
