    JSON – Elegant Approach for cross domain AJAX scripting: 

    Tried it and fell in love with it right away. This is a sure winner for those writing cross domain widgets for the Internet. JSON is a data format that can be handled with ease in JavaScript (or Java or any programming/scripting language). It also allows cross domain scripting which is not supported by AJAX. Here are some cool resources to get started.

    Introduction to JSON:

    Web 2.0 – What have you to offer Sales? 

    Leveraging Web 2.0 to Sell by Geoffrey James
    The Internet is the ultimate disruptive technology. Like telephony, radio, television, and even the printing press, the Internet is dramatically changing nearly every aspect of daily life, both inside businesses and in the daily lives of individuals. Much of this disruption has been both unplanned and unexpected, and nothing more so than the sudden prominence of what’s been called Web 2.0: the blogs, wikis and social networking sites where users generate content for consumption by other users. 


    Sales 2.0 represents not just a better way of selling, but a substantial enhancement of the customer experience. The Web 1.0 environment, with its emphasis on pushing information out to a wider audience, overloaded customers with information. While they had access to information that in the past belonged entirely to sales professionals (i.e. product features, comparison pricing, customer complaints etc.), many customers saw all that data as an undifferentiated blur of meaningless facts. By creating a more collaborative environment, Sales 2.0 allows the sales professional to use his or her specific expertise to help the customer differentiate between information that’s essential and information that’s not.

    Is the Internet Inter-active enough? 

    Interactivity untill recently meant software interactivity. Software Engineers were keen on developing softwares that can interact with the user based on business logic and algorithms. The new Social Networking concepts are proving that enabling human interaction via softwares are as valuable too.However we are yet to see the explosion. My friend was mentioning about Time magazine featuring “YOU” as the Person of the year 2006 because of the participation of the PEOPLE in the internet. Are these social networking sites the only answers for interactivity on the net?

    Adopting Web 2.0: Should we rewrite the Internet? 

    Finally i decided to take the plunge into the blogging world and write about the so called Web 2.0 (i guess, i should mention the “so called” to be politically correct)

    While the business and ivestment gurus in the US are debating whether Web 2.0 is a bubble or boom, the technology has created several initiatives including consulting firms specializing in Web 2.0 in India. I was recently browsing few Indian blogs and corporate websites and was thrilled at the developments. WATConsulting – a Web 2.0 consulting firm run by a 22 year old techie, has advices for corporations on why they should invest in Web 2.0. (see slideshare below)

    Back when Microsoft introduced C#, I happened to visit Chennai around the same time. I noticed several billboards around the city advertising course offerings on C#. The technology was featured as cover story in magazines. The clarity of Indian entrepreneurs in adopting new technology is clearly unique.

    Zimbra’s success and its acquisition last week by Yahoo, hopefully convinces the Web 2.0 Skeptical’s and helps them cross over. The company clearly has proven a new approach in product development and also a new business model – One that values the open source community and model. However, I am quite disappointed at the deal though. When Oracle paid ~400 million USD for acquiring Stellent – a content management company early this year, Yahoo has managed to acquire Zimbra (a clever & strong contender for Microsoft Exchange) for ~350 million USD. May be I am missing the scoop.

    Unlike the buzzword “Portal” which i think is the most misunderstood and misused term in the Web Technology world, Web 2.0 has a clearly identified concept, technology and benefit. Moreover isn’t it easier to say Web 2.0 rather than Collective Intelligence and User generated content and Social Netwroking and Blog and Wiki and Mashup and Rich Internet Applications.

    The rewriting of the internet has already started i guess. Day by day you can see that sites are offering a better user experience by implementing these new technologies. I truly believe that any thing other than static content can be done a lot more better utilizing these new technologies.

    “Are coporations willing to take a shot at these new concepts and technologies?”  is the bigger question lingering in several minds.

      Whether we like it or not, good or bad, Internet is going to occupy our life.

      As long as the network infrastrcuture for bigger countries like India and China are not in place, I dont think a complete changeover will happen in Internet or its technologies. It could be in pockets and as the business market is shifted to bigger countries like India and China (with more than 8% GDP), unless these countries move, bigger changes in technology may not happen, as there may not be ROI for business houses. May be the universities can think about it ?
