Ok – maybe Oliver Twist had it tougher than me. New Balance 446 mujer But telcos are sure making it tough for the digital citizens to give them their money. asics gel kayano 21 męskie With the Mercury touching 44 Degrees Celcius…

  • NIKE AIR PRESTO Flyknit Ultra
  • my modem (+ inbuilt wifi router) konked off after a decent 3-4 year service (never once turned it off). I gave a call to our service provider, airtel, but they weren’t that friendly. I was faced with a bill for a new modem+router, so I thought this is an incentive for me to explore new providers. Canotte Atlanta Hawks Chalo – they have bigger battles to fight out with the moving target telecom policy and the associated scams

    .

    So, I googled for keyphrases such as Broadband Delhi, broadband delhi plans, cheap broadband plans etc. Air Jordan 5 Retro Like most googlers, I didn’t bother looking beyond top 6-7 results. New Balance Pas Cher – MTNL seemed to have the best organic results. – Airtel, reliance, tata photon, aircel, hughes (for business) seem to be front runners in Google adwords – I felt the need for a price comparison site – which is fairly common in western markets.

  • Chaussures Nike Air Jordan
  • I found a couple Price India – What kind of price comparison site doesn’t give you links to the product page if you want to buy it. They should also put in dates because price information is going to change frequently. Broadband Plan – Terrific comparison interface with some nice interactions – you can filter on the plans using a slider for cost, speed or data usage limits. Or you can do any combination of the three. It’s a pity that they haven’t mentioned dates either and once you’ve decided which plan you like – the contact details are corporate addresses and generic URLs. The real switching cost – trying to choose a broadband plan So from top of my mind, I could think of airtel, tata, reliance, tikona and MTNL. So I decided to look at their broadband plans or order a new connection online (HA!) – Each provider has atleast 10 plans based on permutations and combinations data usage, speed and cost. – Choosing the plan is a tough proposition – but the telcos certainly don’t help. – Let’s break into two parts:

    1. How do you help people find you and
    2. Once, they’ve found you, how do you help them buy one of your products.

    Tata I’m always confused between Tata Communications, Tata Docomo and Tata Indicom. I suspect Tata Communications is for corporates (Gaboli has a lease line from Tata Communications) but it’s strange that the URL http://www.tataindicombroadband.in/tariffs.html shows Tata Communications. It’s also strange that they don’t have any plan for less than Rs. Canotte Boston Celtics 1000 per month. Perhaps they are not interested in retail customers. However, the user interface was simple, clean and didn’t throw any bugs. Full marks to them there. MTNL I reached two different pages on two different site – both seem to be official MTNL sites. Which one is correct? this http://delhi.mtnl.net.in/commercial/broadband_tariff.htm or this http://mtnldelhi.in/broadband/postpaid_broadband_tariff_plans.htm Needless to say the design seemed two decades old. Fjallraven Kanken Classic Airtel This is a case of ‘coolness’ over ‘usable’ or ‘form’ before ‘function’. The code doesn’t work on chrome. Half the page is blank while the other is cluttered and needs a scroll. There are redundant steps and questions which are bound to turn customers away. Summary I’m still surprise by the hesitance towards paying for user experience (design and management) services. The internet is not a place for just reproducing print material. It’s a place for interactions and transactions. Here are 3 things which I often mention in our presentations to clients: – Search: The Google SERPs page is now as important as the front of your corporate building. If I search for broadband and you are not in the top few organic results, then 80-90% of the people will not be able to reach you. Think about how much you invest in the front of your building. shaly.fr – Navigation: In a shop, would you build an obstacle course between the counters? Every click brings a threat of ‘customer dropping out’. Make it quicker and easier for folks to buy your products. – You’re mistaken when you say aam janta is not online. Railway bookings (IRCTC) for individuals and online tax transactions (VAT, service tax etc.) for small businesses have changed the scenario. After all, nobody wants to step out when it’s 44 degrees. Please sir …

    The last few days have seen the election campaigns for MCD heating up. I’m still surprised to see that apart from my parents, I don’t really know anyone in my circles who’s planning on voting. I thought of doing some active research into the candidates. But, please do read the PS section at the bottom for my cribbing on the lack of local journalism. goedkoop schoenen adidas Nike Air Max 2017 Dames My first question was – What does an MCD councillor really do? What’s the job about? Here’s a good synopsis: 1. The official government published list show 3 candidates from Chirag Delhi ward (which includes Greater Kailash 2). 2. These are from Congress, BJP and BSP

    3. nike basketball shoes for sale in south africa ray ban homme pas cher There is either very little information/ debate available online about the cadidates or it is not showing up on Google 4. In my view, given the responsibilities for a MCD councillor, the top issues from this ward would be: – Re-opening of Savitri cinema (Can it be stopped?). Stephen Piscotty Replica Jersey nike tn requin Maybe the MCD doesn’t have much role but we’ll need all parts of the government to be activated.

  • Air Max 1 Homme
  • Air Max 2017 Dames zwart – Parking is becoming tougher and tougher in residential and market areas. – Water Logging. In the first dust storm in April this year, we saw water logging at Chirag Dilli flyover and traffic backed up for miles. Kanken Rugzak Uitverkoop Air Jordan 12 Uomo Nike Air Max 2016 Goedkoop What will happen in the monsoon? – Development of parks shouldn’t be a horticulture activity alone. chaussures gel lyte 5 There needs to be a complete development for sporting activity. chaussures de foot puma So, I don’t really understand why I need to listen to references of CW games on the radio for these elections… Maglie Indiana Pacers 5. Air Jordan 6 In just one party there are 7 wives of current politicians who are running for the post for the first time (I’m pretty sure). Canotte Phoenix Suns Is this what the women’s bill was aiming for? While I’m centre-left on the issue of reservations… Atlanta Hawks Asics Pas Cher clearly political parties need to focus on talent management. Scott Kazmir Authentic Jersey PS – Local Journalism. It took me 20 minutes to finally find the list online! All popular media have done a good job of listing all Congress and all BJP candidates.

  • NIKE AIR ZOOM VOMERO 11
  • nike air max 2017 femme rouge Only myneta.info has done a ward wise presentation. There’s a dearth of insightful information on any of these candidates. Maglia Clyde Drexler This re-affirms my belief about the complete lack of local journalism (print or digital). nike air max 2016 goedkoop There is a population of about 25,000 people in this MCD ward. Cheap Fjallraven Kanken Kids Surely it could support a local dedicated newspaper or even a digital newsletter. Adidas NMD Dames If you can get enough ads to distribute free classifieds books (yellow pages) every month, I’m sure an enterprising media company/ journalist/ student would find it worthwhile to have a dedicated fortnightly/ monthly newspaper.

    howard gardnerI had the privilege of attending a lecture by Howard Gardner aka the Father of Multiple Intelligences. We were a couple of thousand people in Talkatora Stadium. With ticket prices upto Rs. 5000, I couldn’t help but think this guy’s certainly getting a rockstar reception. After his lecture, he re-affirmed my theory – he’s definitely a rockstar. Canotte Seattle SuperSonics (side note: Indians tend to pronounce Howard the same as they pronounce Harvard.

  • Air Jordan 8 Homme
  • This led to a series of Howard & Harvard jokes. But underlying this, is one of my favourite pet peeves – pronouncing w as v and vice versa.. asics gel noosa donna so people say “vill you get some vater from the willage vell. Disclosure..in that light my surname should be spelt ‘Java’ instead of ‘Jawa’ ) The lecture was on Multiple Intelligence and Child Centred Education. For those not familiar with the subject – Wiki has a summary here. He spoke at length about pluralisation. nike air max 2017 femme noir He said’ “Pluralisation simply means – deciding what’s important and teaching it in many different ways”. Another great insight was his consideration of adding two new intelligences – existential itelligence and pedagogical intelligence to the list of 8 proposed earlier. To understand MI, he mentioned there are two important points to keep in mind:

    • Important point number 1: MI is not an educational end. It is most useful as an educational means to a publicly stated goal. Some of these goals could be – Disciplinary understanding, scientific-technological prowess, democratic society, economic competitiveness etc.
    • Important point number 2: You can not legitimately go from scientific finding to an educational recommendation – any scientific claim (including MI theory) has a large number of implications, even ones that are inconsistent with one another.

    What I enjoyed most was his section on misunderstandings around the MI theory Myth 1: Intelligence is the same as a sensory system. Reality 1: Intelligences are like our computers that operate independent of which sensory system is used. air max pas cher pour femme For e.g. Maglie Indiana Pacers linguistic intelligence can operate on auditory, visual or tactile information. Don’t speak about ‘visual’ or ‘auditory’ intelligence. Myth 2: Intelligence is the same as a ‘learning style’ or a ‘working style’. Reality 2: A style implies an approach that applies equally to all contents. Nike Air Max pas chers This may or may not obtain across multiple intelligences or domains; this matter needs to be established by empirical study. Myth 3: An intelligence is the same as a domain or discipline. Reality 3: Any domain / discpline involves multiple intelligences and any intelligence can be applied to multiple domains/ discplines. for e.g. there maybe a difference in someone’s musical performance vs. Adidas NMD Dames Tennis Nike his/her musical intelligence. Myth 4: There is an official, approved MI approach to education and to schools Reality 4: MI theory is certainly relevant to education and it calls for attention to individual intellectual profiles. New Balance Polska However, a whole variety of educational approaches can follow from MI theory and there no official ‘MI’ or ‘Gardner’ schools Myth 5: Intelligences are God-given talents that can’t be changed. Reality 5: Even though they have a heritable component, but they are quite flexible and their development is strongly dependent on adequate resources, including effective modeling and teaching. Nike Free Rn Flyknit Dames As I had heard, Howard came across as very humble. nike air max 2017 femme rouge While his academic pursuits are amoral in nature, he spent a while talking about the need to be ‘good’. He cited examples of Gandhi, Martin Luthar King Jr., Mandela etc and ended with a Ralph Waldo Emerson quote ‘Character is higher than intellect’. Towards the end of the lecture, he spoke of the power of digital media to promote experiential learning (Donfoss Universe , Arizona small lab). Nike Air Foamposite He also spoke about the MIT scratch app. nike air max 2017 femme The Q&A session was interesting and one question was quite pertinent to the subcontinent.

  • EQT SUPPORT ADV
  • Should we be focusing on making our children bi-lingual/ multi-lingual. Nike Air Max 1 Heren zwart In his simple way, he said, “you can definitely teach kids to be bi-lingual, but it will probably be at the cost of other subjects such as arts, geography etc.”. The point resonated with the teachers in the audience and he got a prompt applause for that one. He had a couple of parenting tips, which I thought were wise:

    1. Children never listen to what you say, but invariably notice what you do
    2. Nothing said at a dinner table is ever forgotten.

    The lecture brought about a couple of thoughts in my mind with respect to Gaboli. Gaboli is venturing in content development and is closely looking at the opportunity around vernacular based, localised content. nike air max heren The big questions to be answered are:

    1. How do you balance the necessity of bi-lingual education in India with covering adeuquate ground in other subjects?
    2. How can interactive, digital media drive the ‘pluralisation’ approach without being restricted to glorified flash cards?

    Food for thought from the rockstar.

    Here are the notes I wrote for my speech for the Tech Mahindra/ Mahindra Satyam i5 talks. You can view the video of the talk on this page here.

    It’s a pleasure to be here today nearly three years after I left TechM.

    I joined Mahindra British Telecom in May 2005 after completing my MBA from the Indian School of Business in Hyderabad as part of the first GLC batch. I joined the Sharda centre office on Karve road. For those of familiar with that office, there was a restaurant called Swami just across the road and my flat was in the apartment complex just behind Swami. And…my seat used to be in the section adjacent to the reception. So, my claim to fame in that office was that it used to take me less than 2 minutes from my bed to my desk. That was a good life.

    At that point, the company was about 4000 people and I had the privilege of working closely with the top management and experience entrepreneurship first hand. In 4 years the company underwent a name change, went public and grew from 4000 people to 25000 people. nike air max 90 pas cher Of course, it has recently also built this wonderful campus which I’m visiting for the first time. I feel proud that I too made a tiny contribution towards this fantastic company.

    I was given the opportunity to join the account management team in London managing the Portal related business with BT. It was called the collaboration platform. That was the beginning of my love affair with anything to do with the web. I left Tech Mahindra to start a company focused on web technology. Maglie Chicago Bulls The company is called Gaboli and it offers web solutions for education and corporate customers.

    I must start on topic by saying that the contents of my talk today are crowdsourced from facebook. nike goedkoop online I put up a status update on the topic and get about 10 ideas from people in my circle. Today I wish to talk about the evolution of social networks and what the future of social networks will look like.

    Let’s start by looking at the history of the net. I will then later speak about what I find interesting about social networks and finally I would like to leave you with one idea as food for thought.

    – People say the earliest form of the internet can be traced back to MIT in 1962 with new research on packet switching as opposed to circuit switching. By the late 60s they had designed the specifications for ARPANET with speeds of around 2.4 kbps

    – By the 1970s, the community was imagining connected federated networks and started developing protocols such as TCP and later Domain Name System or DNS as we know it.

    – By the early 90s, Tim Berners Lee was leading MIT’s effort towards creating the World Wide Web and hence is known as the father of the world wide web.

    – Gradually with Hypertext protocols and HTML, it was possible for GUI Browsers to be launched and Netscape was one of the earliest browsers.

    Now. Around 2003-04 is when the term web 2.0 came into fashion.

  • ADIDAS VALCLEAN2 CMF
  • What was web 2.0 and how was it different from web 1.0. Simply put, the web was mostly a store of information till then.

    But web 2.0 brought about a new level of interaction and transaction online. Consumers turned into Producers of content. e.g. Wikipedia, Youtube. Open APIs and XML helped websites talk to each other like never before. e.g.

  • ROSHE ONE
  • Pizza hut could easily mark all the pizza outlets on a google map. File sharing became easier through P2P networks and media streaming took advantage of the faster speeds. VOIP became mainstream. nike tn noir Online payments became more common fueling ecommerce.

    Since around the same time, social networks have seen explosive adoption around the world. Now let me ask you guys some questions now:

    – How many of you ever signed up on Orkut?

    – How many of you still use Orkut?

    How many examples of products that you can think of where in one country you get 15 million users in about 1 year and then lose most of them the next year!

    – How many of you have a facebook account?

    To give you some idea of statistics

    – It generates nearly 1000 billion pageviews per month

    – Half of facebook users login everyday… thats means at any point of time there is probably 300 million people on facebook.

    – I have heard (don’t quote me on this) that according to statistics, men spend most of their time looking through photos of women they don’t know. Maybe these are friends of friends. Men will be men! Can you guess what women do? Women spend most of their time looking through photos of other women they do know!

    – What about facebook apps. Zynga is now on the top gaming companies in the world based on their popular games, farmville, mafia wars, etc. Do you know there are more farmville players than the total number of twitter users.

    Do you know how Google makes money? The search is free, email is free, browsers free, maps are free… so how does it make money? You might have noticed sponsored links on the right column while using google. Each of these advertisers pay Google a small amount of money anytime a user clicks on their ad. Adidas NMD Heren In other words, there is a cost per click. This could be as low as Rs. 2 or as high as Rs. Solde Adidas 100 per click.

  • Nike Air Max 90 Dames groen
  • With about $30 billion dollars, you can imagine the number of advertisers and the number of clicks!

    Facebook followed a similar model and now many people say that facebook may overtake Google in advertising revenue one day. That brings us to Google+.

    Google+. About a year ago, the CEO of Google, Eric Schmit resigned. asics gel kinsei 4 cena Larry Page took over as CEO and the first step he took was to link the whole company’s bonus to the performance in social.

    How many of you signed up for Google+? Very interestingly, you had to sign up for Google+ .. nike roshe run mesh you didn’t get it normally as you got google buzz in your gmail inbox.. why?

    As part of signing up for Google+, they asked two three questions – they asked are you Mr./ Ms./ Mrs., they asked your date of birth and they asked your city. This was possibly the most important step of all… why?

    When you’re an advertiser, you want to reach your specific audience. For e.g. Ray Ban pas cher Maruti target audience for alto is men between 25 and 35 in urban cities in India. fjallraven kanken pas cher Facebook had this information for each of its members as you gave that information when you signed up. However, Google never had access to the personal demographic information for its search users. That is why, advertisers started feeling that they were getting a better return on the advertising through facebook compared to Google. That is why Google+ is critical to their strategy.

    Finally, on the evolution of social networks – it is now the age of verticalised networks or contextual networks. You might have noticed, your facebook a/c has connected you to your college friends, family and colleagues at work. Every time your college friend uploads an embarrassing picture, you think what would my colleagues think? Or, when you friend sends a dirty joke on your wall – you think what will my family think?

    There is a need for separate networks for different aspects of your lives and that is one of the main philosophies behind my company, Gaboli. adidas zx 700 femme bordeaux Garrett Richards Baseball Jersey Those of us in web development know the importance of online forums and communities when it comes to resolving issues related to open source.

    In Gaboli, for a customer, we created MyLaw.net which is India’s largest network for lawyers and legal professionals. It also includes an online university so lawyers can take online courses and give online exams. We have created a closed network for the employees of a Fortune 500 company. Air Jordan 4 Maglie Atlanta Hawks We run online networks for some of India’s leading business schools such as XLRI and Jamnalal Bajaj.

    With the BRIC summit in New Delhi today, I was reminded of the previous Friday – Saturday, when I finally got round to going help out with the Explorer’s Garden Project.

    Old friend, Tarun’s set himself some lofty goals for this year for his class as part of his TFI fellowship. Soldes Chaussures Nike goedkoop nike air max 2017 (you can read more about his experiences here and the four goals here)

    Anyway, coming to the name of this post. Nike Air Max 2016 Heren groen mochilas kanken mini I generally spend my time thinking of ‘blue ocean’, transformative solutions for the education sector in India (for e.g. air max pas cher pour femme Maglie Boston Celtics multi-lingual content delivered through cost effective tablets). Nike Air Max Goedkoop nike air max 2017 zwart But, Friday- Saturday was a good reminder of the ground realities (pun intended).

    This week threw a couple of surprise bans. Shahrukh Khan gets banned from the Wankhede stadium for 5 years. File sharing sites (read Torrent) were banned in India. It seems the enthu cutlet ISPs also decided that vimeo.com (which is like youtube) fell in the banned category and hence, has been inaccessible for that last two days. ISPs have reverted on vimeo and the service seems to be getting restored now. chaussures asics homme pas cher mochilas kanken classic Gotta love the irony The ban stems from a petition to the High Court by Copyright Labs on behalf of the makers of the movies ‘3’ and ‘Dammu’. 3, of course, is the movie with the soundtrack ‘kolaveri di’. Nike Air Max Norge Nettbutikk Sko Kolaveri’s count, today, is at 55 million views. oakley femme pas cher The kolaveri spoofs and related videos would add up to a similar number. In digital marketing terms, they couldn’t possibly have had a better promotion campaign for the movie (mind boggling worldwide reach at zero cost, super high level of engagement)… Asics Pas Cher and the guys behind ‘3’ go after the site which is exactly like youtube!! In the same vein, with a rapidly shrinking audience, the IPL (and Mumbai Cricket Association) desperately need ambassadors like Shahrukh Khan. air max pas cher What would happen if KKR reaches the finals in 2013 and they are to play in Wankhede. nike air max 90 pas cher SRK decides the team won’t play if he’s not let in the stadium. Or better yet, the players refuse to play if their team owner is not allowed for the game… Houston Rockets then what happens. nike air max 2016 heren nike air max 90 pas cher Nike Air Max Italia 🙂 Music and Movie Piracy. Something’s gotta give. It seems the old laws and practices around copyright infringement for the entertainment industry are just not going to work anymore. air max pas cher nike air max 90 pas cher Example – Songs.pk While I was teaching e-marketing in 2010, I had included a case study around the business model of music portals (such as itunes, songs.pk etc.) in the final exam. Maglie Brooklyn Nets Out of a whim, I asked one question on whether the site songs.pk (one of the most popular sites in that demographic) was legal or not and roughly 50% felt the site was legal. Many students wrote ‘because the site was available and accessible and it was charging advertisers, hence it must be legal!’ Now Songs.pk was banned earlier this year, which is fair enough… oakley pas cher but it didn’t take the owners long to re-launch the site as songspk.pk. nike air max 2017 dames Blauw How do things proceed from here? Potentially, the Indian film industry body will spends lakhs of rupees in re-petitioning the high court and getting a ban on songspk.pk. They will get another ban order. Scarpe Kobe 11 While in another world (perhaps, Pakistan) the 19 year old owner of songspk.pk will notice his site’s traffic taking a big dip. Joey Bosa Ohio State Jerseys He’ll read the Indian news. Shrug his shoulder at the pesky Indian lawyers and courts and go ahead and buy a new URL – perhaps, pksongs.pk and re-launch for a cost of Rs. Nike Air Max 90 Heren 500/ year with an effort of 45 minutes at his computer. Is there any hope of music labels winning this game? There has to be a new model. chaussures nike pas cher There has to be some disruption in this space.. the itunes model of granularity in the product will help <feels Sarika Grover>… Fjallraven Kanken Mini Goedkope Nike Air Max schoenen but file copying and sharing is here to stay. To be clear – I avoid using torrent and using pirated software/ music – but can’t help feel there’s a tipping point building up. Nike Air Max 2017 Goedkoop Judiciary in action The courts reacted with lightening speed in this case. Tennis Nike Air Jordan 11 (Given the backlog in clearing cases). This is even more surprising considering the judgement is probably from the vacation bench as the courts are on summer vacation right now! FYI – In 2011, the Supreme court had 85 days as holidays, plus national holidays plus 2 day weekends. It’s true! But more importantly, here’s what’s striking:

    • Providing a ban order without any explanation or insight into the various types of file sharing sites. Where and how do you draw the line? for e.g. is dropbox too far from the business model of those sites included in this ban?
    • How did Vimeo get into the mix? Whoever thought of vimeo – why didn’t they include youtube?
    • Why did the March order go into effect only now?
    • WSJ quotes some legal experts on the matter

    Experts attacked ISPs for clamping down on free speech on the web.

    “Why and how did telecom giants target select websites,” said Pranesh Prakash, a program manager at Bangalore based-Centre for Internet and Society, a non-profit group advocating free speech on the web. Nike Sko Nettbutikk Air Jordan 12 (XII) air max pas cher pour femme He pointed out that the High Court did not spell out the names of websites that should be blocked.

    “Shutting websites merely on the basis of suspicion amounts to private crackdown on free speech of the web,” he said. “Why didn’t the telecom ministry repeal or object to the move, knowing that the court didn’t spell out the websites to be blocked?”

    Bhupendra Kainthola, a spokesman for the telecom ministry, noted that the “government or the telecom ministry had nothing to do with the high court ruling.” When asked why the ministry did not intervene, Mr. Air Max 2017 Goedkoop nike air max pas cher Kainthola responded: “What can we do? If an order has been passed, we have to follow it… that is the law of the land.”

    The hackers were quick to react too, taking down the Supreme Court and Congress party site… Nike Air Max 2016 Dames grijs La chaussure de running Asics as my classmate from ISB says “PS: As an information security enthusiast, I firmly believe, it is not a question of if we will get jacked..

    “there is random and then there is vineet jawa” – Tarun Varma on Nov 22 from the top berth of a twelve hour delayed Sampark Kranti somewhere in the hinterland of Bihar. fjallraven kanken backpacks sale uk On that note, here goes my eclectic collection of updates, musings and gyaan from ‘around the country’ and ‘around the web’ Around the country Decent trains I’m typing this post as we return from the XLRI annual alumni homecoming. Nick Marshall – Auburn Tigers Jerseys it’s been 1 year for Gaboli’s OneSchool at xl and the alumni tracking has gone from 1600 to about 5300 people in the last 12 months. the goal is to get it to 8000 as soon as possible and then focus more on alumni targeted services. sales pitch aside, the Jamshedpur campus has a way of getting me back into the blogging mode. the hospitality and personal touch of the students, faculty and staff on campus is truly heart warming. anyway, Naxalite driven 8 hour delay aside, this 2 tier AC compartment has a working plug point. thanks to my photon, I’m online and getting a decent workday on my laptop. nike air max chaussures vente check out the new age ‘toilet occuppied status gizmo’ in the train.

    Startup Circuit after sometime away from the startup circuit, I got a chance to go to a Startup Saturday and the IMT Gaziabad fair (thanks to NH24, the journey time from south delhi has reduced by a good 45 mins. Fjallraven Kanken Big Tarun’s joke timing is impeccable. question: what was the elephant doing on the M1 (ref. UK). answer: about 10 miles an hour…har. har.). nike air max pas cher Both events gave a far better experience than barcamp. but I do have to say one common theme amongst all these events is that the vast majority of partners from the startup community (investors, associations etc) who put their logo on the banners and the website don’t even bother to show up. what kind of startup focused outfits miss out on the startup fairs and events? makes me wonder about the community. read on further for my sentiments on No Shows… ss – couple of cool things happened. for the first time an individual stood up and announced he’s interested in pitching 15 lakhs into education focused startup. Scarpe Kobe 11 in general, the feeling I get is the investors’ mood has really swung and the markets hot again. what do you do when stocks, gold and real estate are all near their respective all time highs. imt – a nice charming session by mahesh murthy. you can catch a nice segment of his talk below (i’m trying the ad free streaming from photo bucket). was also good to see our friend gaurav misra in action and get to hear about the startup struggle stories from ixigo & idiscoveri. nike air max pas cher the biggest reflection point was when one guy walked up and said, why are ‘you guys’ still at a startup fair – you’re not a startup anymore.

Pooja (name not changed) was in touch with us till 5 days before the start date discussing relocation and logistics and then she just disappeared – that’s a No Show. yup… it’s a word which wasn’t even in our dictionaries but now we hear that 30% of new hires in the IT industry just ‘don’t show up’ on their first day of work. they won’t take your calls, they’ll change their phone number and then one week later you’ll see where they eventually joined through their linkedin profile. I’m all for a name and shame approach here. or even a consortium where information about ‘no shows’ are shared amongst the industry players. asics femme pas cher maybe give people like Pooja a thing or two to think about before they just disappear.

    It’s been a while since I blogged – which is good news I guess, as my blogging activity level is inversely proportionate to the activity levels at Gaboli. Looking back at the last 60 days there’ve been many experiments… Rechargeitnow.com Sitting in a campus in Jamshedpur away from the city, I suddenly needed to re-charge/ top-up the pre-pay balance on my phone. I was hesitant to do it on just any random site but I did use rechargeitnow.com and it worked very smooth. Got Rs. Soldes Nike Pas Cher 444 on my airtel in 2-3 minutes.. Matt Holliday Jersey Competition My emarketing classes ended with a competition between two groups of about 20 people each. Nike Air Max 2016 Norge Nettbutikk The basic brief was that each section had to create a website that was (a) free and (b) would support analytics. In 3 weeks time the groups had to maximise the number of unique visitors on their site. With the usual ‘free’ tools at hand – word of mouth, email marketing, seo, social media… both teams had around 1400-1500 unique visitors by the end of the competition. As expected SEO had no effect in such a short timeframe. It was mainly email, social media and word of mouth which led to these visitors. This was expected for any ‘web startup’ with initial traffic from friends and family. One new tool that I discovered through one team was an email address generating tool. nike tn You type in a keyword and the tool crawls the web to find email addresses linked to that topic. I don’t know how relevant or effective it was – but it explained how spamming was so easy these days. More interesting to note was the dynamics amongst the groups. tn nike pas cher In the final semester, very few people were motivated to put in too much effort as most people were also looking for jobs. air max 2017 goedkoop Team leaders had very little influence on the teams and communication often broke down. As with most projects in life, it’s more about the people involved than the task at hand. This leads to the more complex issue – on the web, how do you jump to that next level and get into that ‘growth’ stage. It’s also an interesting challenge which I’ve been discussiing with Anshul who’s been running youthkiawaaz.com. A journalist driven blogging site with well written content focused on youth in India. Hiring Interns in a startup We’re experimenting with interns this summer. Mostly, summer interns for marketing, delivery management etc. One fell sick with jaundice and the others are yet to join… many people advise that it’s probably not worth the effort. Keen to see what our experience will be by August. Technology Using a CMS plugin to solve IE6 compatability issues – bad decision. Browser compatability continues to torment most of the web development world. In a country like India, you can’t ignore IE6 and recently safari has started becoming significant enough to warrant attention. The other consistent complaint across all online marketing projects is the ever widening gap between ‘clicks’ and ‘visits’. Analytics reveal only 50% of the paid traffic from adwords and facebook actually turn into ‘visits’. The reasons provided for this are not really sufficient in my mind. They say visits are not recorded for people that have javascript disabled. kobe 11 pas cher If that were the case then on average most CMS features would not load for 50% of the people – and that’s not consistent with the recorded bounce rate. Affiliate networks have long complained that India is not suited for the ‘click’ model anyway… One way around this is to get into a ‘cost per lead’ model – but then the quality of the leads become truly doubtful.
