Business in the deep space?



According to this article, apparently the investments in space related activities will rise astronomically!


U.S. Defence spending on space has grown from around $15 billion in 2000 to more than $22 billion today and is forecast to reach $28 billion by 2010. India and China have joined the U.S., Europe, Russia, and Japan as having fully independent capabilities. Satellite-toconsumer television has become a $40 billion worldwide market. The markets for satellite radio and GPS positioning and tracking are being validated with growth measured in billions. The successful launch of new satellite broadband services in the U.S. and Canada beginning in 2005 could improve the market for commercial infrastructure. The development of a substantial space tourism market would have a positive but disruptive influence on the industry, though it is not likely to happen before 2010. According to Scott Sacknoff, President of the ISBC, 'With the diversity of the sector ranging from Walmart's IT network to NASA Mars missions to the military's hunt for Al Qaeda, the size of the industry should not be a surprise. Governments around the world look to the industry and see space and satellite technology, R&D, and services as vital to their nation.


Military hunt for Qaeda, I'm sure the snooping won't stop there. Anyways mark my words!

o e-locate (For instance if you're in India, try this),Talk/Video via Satellite, Virtual Presence etc

These above mentioned parties/activities are going to make a huge impact on how we do things in the coming years to come.

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…
