Google Earth Rocks!

Wow, I mean I was sitting and wanted to take a look at my parents house , the house where I grew up and lo! Here it was, right in the heart of India, in Noida. I zoom in to the the place where we played soccer in the Stadium and then here I zoom in further to my Mom/Dad's house.(Ok it's fuzzy and I don't want you to drop in at my parents place...LOL)

Amazing, isn't it? This is just the beginning to my dream which will be reality soon.(I hope in my lifetime), where we will all carry literally Mio like stuff all in one or a PSP(play station mobile) with everything in it and be able to closer to each other more than ever. And with live data! By then I would certainly have had devised way to travel through space with ts*.

I think I'll display more pictures when I'll talk about the "High Context, Low Context". Maybe I would be able to zoom in that bar in Dalian(China) where I sang Pearl Jam(half drunk :)).

Ok here is another pic of paranagua in Brazil where we delivered gas regularly when I worked for Maersk back in 97/98.(A contract with Petrobras). And oh, how can I forget my Bullet Island(Puerto Rico) , pity that my dream port, mayagueez was clouded(hope they'll update the imagery).

And on a GoogleEarthPro trial version with 3D and other stuff. Here's Chicago with 3D buildings.

*ts = thought speed


  1. Where is Sector21 ? Is it near Atta market or near NEPZ ?

  2. amar,
    I't near ATTA market.
    I called my mom last and heard that the whole place has changed.lot's of malls and the works. Gee...If I get some time then I'll problably plan a trip this year Oct.

    PS: I saw your new blog look(modblog), it's rather neat.

  3. If you have been away for long then you are in for real surprise. Delhi and its NCR can be called city of malls. Every other builder is into this goldmine. In GURGAON DLF is going to build the biggest mall in the world stretched over 4 million sq feet.

  4. PS: I saw your new blog look(modblog), it's rather neat.

    Yes I'm really happy with it, spent last night tweaking it :)

  5. Wow, the gurgaon thing is yottacool!!

    I guess my kids/grand kids can plan moving back and building the "bharat" that it was centuries ago.

Redhot Future Of IT Part I :Marketing yourself as IT professional

I had promised about the "RedHot IT Future Series" and so we discuss here how you should market yourself EFFECTIVELY as an IT professional in this new (and dangerous) web age! Web is the place where you're a hero today and villain tomorrow. While there are lots of professionals who are active on the web, not all are enjoying a good reputation as they got "personal" with others and got into a cockfight. The passive IT professional has nothing to lose but nothing to gain at all!

I know "marketing" might seem as a greasy term but the idea is to have the truth about you out there. You know you're a good person and your family knows that you're really smart person but the rest of the world doesn't!

So the question is how do I market myself on the web as a true "nouveau IT professional". A guy who companies will be tempted to pick up the phone as say "Hey, we wanna talk with you. Can you fly over to Palo Alto (or Guatemala or Johan…

Redhot Future Of IT Part 2 :Virtualized Workplaces

Click on the title to hear what I have to say, alternatively click here to listen to what I have to say here.

So what is a virtualized workplace? Does it mean it does not exist? That it's virtual? Well in a certain way YES. This is where the future of our workplace is going to be. Well it is already a reality in some countries.

OK lets start by asking ourselves these questions:
Do you really bond with your colleagues? (think Team cohesiveness)
Do you spend great amount of hours talking about great things that you will do together? (think collaboration)
Do you really feel that you give 100% at work? (think effectiveness)
What do you really miss at your desk? (think personalization)
Is your desk comfortable enough? (Again think optimizing personalization, OK you have done your best to make it your place)Does it really matter to your employer that you are there for him/her? (think commitment)
Or do you get micromanaged over petty issues? (think mismanagement)
Do you see your employees perfor…
