Why Advertising Is Failing On The Internet? Well…is it?

I read this guest post on TechCruch by Professor Eric Clemons (from The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania) yesterday on Why Advertising Is Failing On The Internet. His point is that people don’t need/trust/like advertisements. But hasn’t that always been the case? If it is not relevant to me or its not funny, I don’t like advertisement….right? And nothing has changed on that front!

I think, the fall in advertisement revenues is primarily because of fear of recession and hence cost-cutting. Marketing and R&D are the two most affected verticals when it comes to cost-cutting.

So it is perfectly sensible to look for alternate sources of revenue in such times. Build something which people want to pay for!

I am sure that the advertisement is going to boom again, once the economy is back on track!

Does sharing an idea really matter? Isn’t it all about execution?

Limited Liability Partnerships will be possible in India

January 20, 2009 at 12:08 pm | Posted in Entrepreneur, India, Legal, Startup | Leave a comment

The Parliament of India has passed the Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) Bill 2008. Lok Sabha (Lower House) granted its assent to the Bill on December 12, 2008 which was earlier passed by the Rajya Sabha (Upper House). The LLP Rules have been placed on the website of the Ministry of Corporate Affairs:

Here is a wiki entry explaining the salient features:

Hope it will give a good option to the entrepreneurs and startups to go for a limited liability and still stay away form the overheads of a private limited company.

Completed half marathon in Bangalore mid night marathon

January 11, 2009 at 1:49 pm | Posted in exercise, marathon, running | 2 Comments

Well I am very happy that I was able to complete the half marathon ( 13 miles ) in my first ever marathon on Jan 10, 2009. It took me 2 hrs 58 minutes and I was almost walking in the last couple of miles. But I am glad that I was able to complete.

Trans music in my iPod shuffle helped me a lot.

Day by day I am becoming a big fan of running. Its a very good exercise. Especially when you run in groups, its very refreshing and makes you feel good.

Marathon is an extreme case of feeling good. Seeing thousands of people running, one can definately run 2 times than his/her usual running!

Hope to improve my timing next time!

When I wrote the post  Google goes democratic around 20 days back, it wasn’t yet launched in India and I was not able to see the feature myself. Today morning, when I woke up and I was doing some usual stuff, I noticed it is now enabled in India. Cool!

Google is saying that it will affect your own search results only, but there are some opinions that google will tweak its search results on the basis of search wiki feature. Lot of work ahead for SEO folks!
