Friends of Cyntax

So next thing on agenda, is creating something called The Friends of Cyntax. Here is the W5H …

What?

A closed forum where we bounce-off our (premature) ideas, discuss issues (and seek resolutions), flaunt our achievements (and throw parties) and share our lessons (and seek feedback) . We plan to make it as interactive as possible and may be even “coerce”" our “friends” to participate in.

Who?

A group of friends, family, adversaries, clients, leads, teachers, mentors, ex-employers, partners, prospective hires, all those interesting people we meet on networking events etc. (referred collectively as “friends” henceforth :)). Closed. By recommendation OR invitation.

Why?

Because we need a guardian angel. We need help. With our endeavors. With this large and diverse set of people, most of them mature and experienced enough to take on the world by themselves, we will feel safe. Their experience will help us avoid pitfalls and most common mistakes that businesses make. Also since many “friends” are domain experts, we will approach them for data, insights and operations.

When?

The compilation has already started. We have some seven names now. The youngest of the lot is 21. Or is he 20? And the oldest is around 50. Anyone in particular you think we should approach and beg/plead/bribe/pay to be a friend?

How? Where?

We are still debating. It could be a FB group, a mailing list, a Google/Yahoo group, a regular meeting event or a combination of any of these. Each has its merits and demerits. Someone with an idea?

Right now it is too loose a thought but it has great potential. It could become serious networking tool, a job board, a not for profit start-up in its own right and so many other things. All with the objective of helping other people start up.

And why would someone want to be a part of “friends”? Because you guys love us :D. And then some other tangibles are learning from other intelligent people like you, networking with them and may be, explore opportunities.

BTW, do YOU want in?

Our Wishlist

So, being true armchair geeks, we do have our geek wishlist. Someday we would love to own these. May be someone would want to donate?

  1. Typewriter and obviously refill for the ink
  2. Pin ball machine with all those pinball goodies
  3. Weapons of Cubicle Destruction
  4. Pool Table and some pool players
  5. A Jukebox to play Hindi and English songs alternately
  6. Infinite supply of bubble wrap sheets to kill all the boredom

And if we could get these, would love to have

  1. Cold weather in Delhi
  2. Wonderland (the Alice one)

And finally, we would love to meet

  1. Jobs, Woz, Ive and the bunch
  2. John and John
  3. Ben, Warren and Charlie

And oh yes, if we had a board (ya, that directors one), we would have invited

  1. Prof. Sanjay Bakshi
  2. Warren and Charlie
  3. And hope like hell that they join us :)

Any help on any of the above?

The new :)

Yes. You heard it right. C: is the new :).

Guess what.

Cyntax Who?

If I told someone that I work with Cyntax, and if they found my pitch interesting, instinctively they would Google/Bing/Yahoo us and dig for more information. I did the same to see what the search engines think of us.

More than what search engines thought of us, I was surprised to know that there are atleast SIX more companies businesses called Cyntax. Yes six. Two of them are tax guys (1, 2), two are web design companies (1, 2), one is a website of a poet and thespian. And then there is a CyntaxGroup as well.

I dint know our choice of name would be this popular. Do you know any more Cyntaxes?

And next up is a post with their logos. BTW we are still looking for a logo for OUR cyntax. Any help?

10 years later

It took us 10 years. To finally put those cogs together. And give that final nudge to our giant-wheel.

We first thought about Cyntax sometime in 1999/2000. We have been thinking on it off and on. At play, home and work. Officially and unofficially. Frivolously  and seriously. Today, we are on.

We are working on the identity, website and service offerings right now. Keep watching this space for more. Subscribing to our blog feed would be a good idea.

And as always, appreciate all the help. Drop a line here and lets talk :)
