ABOUT.ME

What do business people do apart from business? They exchange visiting cards. Now that we are all moving towards a paperless, virtual society, isn’t time we had a virtual visiting card as well?

And isn’t it annoying that you have to give people your various ids one by one, patiently? Well, how about a place where they can add/follow all of your accounts from one place?

Well, not to worry, there is  about.me ! The really awesome site which acts like your online visiting card! You can add your own background and choose the services you want to be shown in the card/page.  What is more, it has STATS! You know how many people have seen your page and what they have clicked! So what are you waiting for? get yourself an about.me!

P.S:- My about.me. Please leave your card below, I shall look at it and nod my head. 😀

The google story by David A.Vise(book review)

June 16, 2009 § 14 Comments

GOOGLE is an household name , at least something which everyone who has a “virtual” life knows .

Picture from here

And at some point or the other , we have all wondered about how on earth , rather how in the cyber space do they do it?  This book takes tells us how by the name of the google , they did it .

Some grey cells decided that the world of internet , one with a lot of potential wasn’t alright ( it was messy(with a Y) ,ore like row-naldo)  so they decided that it was time to just send the right signals -not just to the other parts of the body , but to the entire known universe – at least virtually if not literally 😉

Reading the book , got me really inspired (as in to believe in myself and in my head,heart etc etc) . And the guys behind it Sergey Brin and Larry Page , well just wish I get the chance to meet them one day and talk to them . And it is not just creating a search engine but the way the stood by their idea ( ya ya many rejected google when it was up for a million dollars { and I am damn happy that no one bought it!!! } ) and how today it rules the cyber space .

And of course the way it is written is fantastic ! It surely deserves three woots  😉 Just loved the flow and the way the author has managed to make it more  like a (as it says in the book cover) ” detective story” .

For those who want a peek into , one of the greatest inventions of our time , just run faster than a google search and get this book . And for those who are curious about what went into the making of your googling , well just run and get it .
