Projection technology



I came across a cool projector by iMatte which spares the presenter from blinding lights and eliminates grahics from the presenters body.

Cool, giving presentations is going to be much more comfortable now..

Animated blogpost link

I have been playing around with lot of options I am getting through feedburner I found another good utility for feedburner users.

Users can create this kind of animated billboard to display their latest blog posts. Its just the matter of including few lines of html code which is self generated at feedburner.

'
It can be used at N number of places to advertise about your recent postings but I wish if it had enough flexibility to design the final looks,contents and dimension of this animated stuff.. I had no option but to add the same animation twice on top of my blog posts just keep items aligned.

NICE Alumni Group

I have been moderating alumni group for my Alma mater on yahoo groups for around five years now. Year 2000, I have started with this e-group to bring in all NICE alumni on common platform and enjoy being networked.

Delighted to share, we have now good many numbers of alumni, probably atleast one from each batch. Though I find that total members on this group is no where near to the total professionals coming out of the campus, but anyways numbers are growing significantly.

I have put up a subscription link on the right side of this blog for getting directly to the mebership request page.

Hopefully fellow NICEians will have great time being instrumental on this Alumni group.

No Pulse in BlogPulse

Mark and others have been happily using Blogpulse as it supposedly gives an idea about the traffic coming to the respective blogs.

Good rave commets we heard about it, but unfortunately I am having bad experiences or better I say got no chance to experience it at all.

I have registered this blog about a month or more and its unable to update 'posts' sections for it, probably there systems are already out of their breath or have some bugs to be fixed on their part.

Whatever be the issue, I have not heard a single line from them despite writing them via their own 'feedback' form..

Update: Jason Dowdell from Marketing Shift took my concerns to the CTO Intelliseek and he reverted back with positive comments and explaned why it takes so long to get enlisted. Yeah my blog is listed on blogPulse now

Google: One stop internet mall

Google is gradually turning into one stop internet mall while they are continuosly adding internet based services in their product portfolio.

They has came out with talk.google.com where they say they" enables you to call or send instant messages to your friends for free–anytime, anywhere in the world"

Looks like its going to be a cool IM interoperable with other IM clients.. having interface to gmail account, gmail notifier, and gmail contact book. Probably soon they will have (or probably they will have it) features like

1. Search your friend on google and add on google talk.
2. Look for work meaning using "define:" service by google.
3. Interface with Google Map to find out your friends location.
4. A mobile client for google talk leveraging google mobile...



Here is a review on GoogleTalk by download Sqad.

Update:Its a warning bell for Skype.... I am getting very positive feedback from users all around. Users prefer using one tool rather than keeping several different tool for better interoprability between their functionalities.

Update: Looks like google is soon going to have an Internet browser

Japanese meetup @ Bangalore


I posted earlier about Koyo, the fantastic Japanese speaking Bangalore group. We had a great time at last meetup where we sang and danced on Japanese lyrics.

As promised they have a website http://www.freewebs.com/koyoblr which details about various activities about the group, with a mailing list at http://groups-beta.google.com/group/KOYO .

Koyo has recently started alerts for jobs requiring Japanese skills. These Job-alerts are open for individuals who are member of koyo group.

There are more interest group in the line up, great going

Cheeers!!!
