I am Ramakrishnan Kannan born in a place called Tiruchirappalli
at TamilNadu, India. Tiruchirappalli is located in the banks of Kaveri.
I started my schooling in the same place. I am the third son of
my parents and it seems I had shown lots of interest in going to school
as I was feeling bored being at home. From my pre-school to 10th grad I
had studied at the school Mahatma Gandhi Centenary Vidyalaya (MGCV). It
was really a pleasant days and had more fun.
For my 11th and 12th (PUC, HSC) I joined E.R. Higher Secondary School
(a small puzzle. find the expansion of E.R.). I had 115 students
studying along with me in the same class. I am unfortunate. The
neighbouring class had 166. My majors were Maths, Physics, Computer
Science and Chemistry. I studied with the hopes of joining REC, Trichy
now called as NIT, Trichy. I can write a book seperately about my
experiences at ER. ER has a culture by itself. I could not get through
it. I remember those days where I felt really bad for not getting into
REC. But now I feel it to be meaningless.
With a bleak future I joined Shanmugha
College of Engineering
. Now it is called SASTRA. I joined Computer
Science and Engineering and passed out on Aug'2000 with Distinction. I
joined IBM after my college on August 2000 and working till now on the
same project. :).
I joined IBM in the group of Personal
. It is a terminal emulator for Mainframe (z-Series).
I was responsible for taking care of SNA stack related utilities, and
Data Link Control (DLC) layer of the SNA.
I got three patents filed till now and one soon to be. Apart from my
regular work, I got my interest developed towards WebServices. Anbu and Arun
mentored me on webservices and I delivered webservices seminars around
three places in India. I started developing interests towards Grid too
and travelled couple of places including Indonesia, Jakarta for
delivering the usage of grids.
Got certified by IBM on XML and Related technologies and SCJP. Made
position proposals in the area of host integration. I hold the honrary
posts of Technical Mentor and Lab Advocate for host integration product
suite. As part of this lab advocate responsibility I travelled around
India (HSBC, SCB) and architected solutions.
During 2002 travelled to Raleigh, NC for Communications
. Had a very good time over there. I searched for
webshots to give the link to photos. But unfortunately my photos are
not there. Its almost 3 years since I visited my pages over there.
In short had most enjoying time at IBM.

Life @ IISc
I have joined IISc as M.Sc. (Engg) under professor Y. Narahari
in the area of Game Theory and Mechanism Design. I will be
updating more on this soon.
My father was a job typist who married my mother in 1972. I was born @
1979 as the third son of my parents. My mother is an extra ordinary
woman and learnt lots of morals and education about life from her.
Everyday we dine together and the discussions that we had during the
dinner is playing a major role in my character.
Eldest got married and living at Bangalore. Elder brother got married
and living at Singapore.
I got married to Priyadarshini Sampath during November'2003 right after
my return from US. She is a lovingly, ground to earth girl. But takes
lot of rights to me and decides the activities of me currently. I am
able to convince her for my stay @ hostel during my course work @ IISc.
Apart from all these there is one who is influencing my life to a
greater extent now-a-days. He is Karthik Subbian
He is also working @ IBM and studying @ IISc under professor Narahari.
I am currently living @ Bangalore. Please open this my location
