I did not choose the name. The credit goes to one of my creative colleagues.
BTW, I have found wordpress to be quite cool.
The new blog is on technology. You can say it is my official avatar. In that blog, I look at the human and social side of information technology and science in general.
Do check it out. The latest post there is on blogging in Bollywood. Does it interest you?
Also wrote a piece on the blogging boom in Asia:
When Dilbert predicted that everyone will be a reporter in the future, he was not wide off the mark. That was in 1997 when Scot Adam’s The Dilbert Future came out.
Fast forward to 2008. Almost everyone has become a reporter. Look at the number of blogs and micro-blogs (Twitter accounts) today. Or count the number of people making wiki entries.
Not sure? Here are the numbers. Technorati tracks nearly 70 million blogs on a daily basis. 120, 000 blogs are being created every day. Wikipedia recently reached a milestone of 10 million entries, surpassing the 42,000 of its online competitor, Encarta.
All this writing and posting online is not just pure fad. There is some money attached to it too. In 2006, the total revenue for the top 50,000 blogs was US$500 million.
