Personalize Your Google Home Page!

I'm sure lot's of folks have already done this by now. It's not unique but I guess that's what makes it so nice. Anyone , just about anyone can personalize the google home page.

All you need to do is to type in and if you save it as your homepage then you can further personalize it.

check this out.

And you can further personalize it by adding more content on the left.

And as you can see just type in the subject of your interest, for instance I have typed in JDeveloper(my favorite Java IDE from Oracle) when it comes to playing with JSF(Java Server Faces) development. And as you can see you can get your feeds and add the best suitable to you.

Good thing is that Google Personalization saves me from clicking all over the place to follow news, favorite rss feeds,what's hot and what's not. So you just happens to collect everything at one place. You can keep changing your taste and all at one place.

What I still want out of this personalization is:
o Movies
o Weather(I see that MSN gives me a good weather on Assen while a cool example of Boston on google really doesn't help;0)
o Directions

They're still US specific.But I'm anxious.:D

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…
