ಕನ್ನಡ ಬರೆಯೋದು ಈಗ ಬಹಳ ಸುಲಭ. ಗೂಗಲ್ ನ ಒಂದು ವಿಶೇಷ ಏನೆಂದರೆ ಏನು ಬೇಕು ಅದಕ್ಕಿಂತ ಒಂದು ಕೈ ಮೇಲೆಯೇ ಇರುತ್ತದೆ ಅವರು ಕೊಡುವ ಸೇವೆ.
ಬೇರೆ ime ಗಳು ಬರಿ transilteration ಬಗ್ಗೆ ಕಾಳಜಿ ವಹಿಸಿದರೆ ಗೂಗಲ್ ಒಂದು ಹೆಜ್ಜೆ ಮುಂದೆ ಹೋಗಿ ಶಬ್ದ ಕೊಶವನ್ನು ಹೊಂದಿದೆ.
ಅಂದರೆ ಅದು ನಾವು ಬರೆಯುತ್ತಿರುವ ಶಬ್ದವನ್ನು ಊಹಿಸಿ ಪೂರಕವಾದ ಕನ್ನಡ ಶಬ್ದವನ್ನು ತೋರಿಸುತ್ತದೆ. ಏನು ಅಂತ ಬರೆಯೋದಕ್ಕೆ ನಾವು Enu ಅಂತ ಬರೆಯೋದು ಬೇಕಿಲ್ಲ
ಬರೆ enu ಅಂದರೆ ಸಾಕು ಅದು guess ಮಾಡಿ ಕನ್ನಡ ಶಬ್ದವನ್ನ ಕೊಡುತ್ತದೆ. ಗೂಗಲ್ ನಂತಹ company ಇಂದ ಇಂಥದ್ದನ್ನೇ ನಿರೀಕ್ಷಿಸಬಹುದು.

Darkness is non existent. It is like saying "half full glass". The statement
can also be made as "the glass is half empty".The viewpoint influences words If one tries to analyze darkness, its a futile effort. After all darkness is absence of light.One cannot see anything inside darkness. Some long, tapered thing need not always be a snake. All we need is better light to see it properly. Its better to see 'that thing' in light before touching.
What we see in dark can also be seen in light.The associated meaning changes. In light a rope can only be rope.But in darkness it can be anything. After all the world that we live-in is true.The walls around us are going to be there till they fall down.Everything around us remains steady no matter its light or dark.All we need to know is things are same view-point is different.
In darkness if some light appears we start seeing shadows.This is now more frightening.The things that were not visible suddenly start appearing as if they are multiple. Half light is dangerous.That 'long thing' now appears not only long but also fat. Its no more an ordinary snake, it is really a python! Its matter of time till room is enlightened completely. Now that fat thing has gone.It is just a rope! what a relief!
Remember those days when you used to hide in darkness to skip school home work. Your father used to search entire home for you.You saw him but he could not.It was really fun. Then father suddenly stopped searching, had lunch and went to bed. Before you could say where you are lights of your parent's room went off. You are now in complete darkness. What started as fun suddenly became scary. You start crying. And suddenly lights became on and your father found you. You were not dissappointed, you were happy.
Sadly,in real life many times no lights are 'put on' when you cry.Even if they are 'on' you feel irritated.One who accepts the light saves himself.
It is said that when all lights go off something within flashes light. If surrounding is full of glaring light,light withing does not manifest itself. It shows us the way where other lights fail.One who appreciates it is saved. Affection with darkness or greyness make others forget you. People no more know you and you become 'no more'.Recognizing darkness as facts-minus-light saves you. Because the problem has solution when presented in this manner. Now you know what to do,just replace minus with a plus sign. The thing that you thought snake/python become just a rope. Even if it is really a snake you can save your self in a better manner in light.

Literary worksare no more original nowadays. Like software written in MNCs they too contain lot of googled paragraphs. Ideas also stem from what other's are saying, instead of coming originally from author. Originality is difficult. But improvement is possible. I read one article on internet find it interesting and add my lines to it. If
original(!) author doesn't have problems then I can republish the work as mine, with a note that others can also do it, like I did. This is how GPL works. What if I purchase a novel, modify and republish it. This sounds great isn't it? This can create an atmosphere for collaborative work in even literary field which is traditionally a single man field.People start relating them selves to articles. They think how can I improve this article so that I can republish it. This continuously improvises literature.

A Word of caution:
Recently I was browing net and came across this article by Stallman popularly known as RMS.I thought this could be one more anti-propreitery article by him. But one of the link in his article opened my eyes. Its about MS Word format.
I usually wondered why companies demand resume to be sent as Word document. Honestly speaking the document won't appear as neatly as we had written. Say I use Office 2000 for writing my CV company uses Word 97!. My document may not open at all. Even if it opens It may not display properly. We are using products of same company, but MS keeps on changing the .doc file structure.Even if you have a licenced version of Office97 you can't read a document written with Office 2000. It annoys. To read that piece of document do I have to pay MS for upgrade? This is outrageous.
If you think you can use some open/free software to read .doc files a word of caution again.MS is planning to use a propreitery XML extension to encode .doc files. If some company provides a software to read such .doc files can be suied by MS!
Thats not all RMS gives a link to BBC site article
According to this article, sensitive data from your system may leakout from a piece of word doc!Read it to believe it.
When I heard of IBM initiating an Open Document Type movement, I thought its another MS killer act by Big Blue. It may be true but Its justifiable. We can't let our sensitive data to be leaked with just an ASCII file encoded in MS style.
Let's fight back. Ask company's to accept pdf resumes. Are they going to edit our resume? If not then why on earth they want our resume in editable format?
Let's use ODT,plain text or PDF only.
Long live freedom!
