Movies This Christmas… Whoz The Legend

It's Christmas Eve! :) Expected some great movies this season. Nothing much in Hollywood to talk about. Disappointing really. By the way, i just watched "I'm Legend" starring Will Smith". Ummm.. Frankly, it would have been better if they named it "I'm Crap". It's a very disappointing movie. A great concept and a great story, totally wasted. The first half, nearly an hour long. It was terrific. Will Smith and his bitch (Samantha) were terrific in whatever they did, whether it be hunting, racing, playing golf or surviving the nights. I enjoyed the first half. Then i got myself some popcorns and drinks. The second half commenced. A girl shows up from nowhere, to save Will Smith. And then there is a survivors community out there on mountains. Blah Blah Blah..... And suddenly "I'm Legend" is no more alone. Tired of wanting some real action, i finished my drinks and started munching on food n popcorn. And before i…

Happy Birthday “Blog”

17th December'2007. That was the actual date, the day when "Blogging" or "Blog" celebrated it's 10th birthday. 10 years back, of course there did exist, many online journals and message boards, but nothing like blogs were thought of, until one day, "Jorn Barger" coined the term "Weblog" which described the process of "logging the web" as he surfed. Weblog was combination of words "web" and "logs". But us, the online community in those years, were quick to shorten the word "Weblog" into "blog". And thus was born what i think most of the internet users, know of, early in their childhood. It is amazing how, Jorn Barger, in December'1997, started posting comments and links, etc on his website "Robot Wisdom", thus pioneering the weblog. Today, we all do the same thing. Most of us own a blog and we keep blogging the same way. So let's give credits to the pioneer himself, who changed the internet world, forever. Thanks…

WidgetBucks Moves A Step Ahead

    Recently, WidgetBucks announced that they will only be entertaining US and Canadian traffic for clicks etc as they thought they are the only customers who will likely buy a product from their advertisers. At that moment it looked an end for WidgetBucks as far as the international traffic was concerned. The only alternative that was left was to geo-target your websites. Geo-Targetting would have been lot of pain for some website owners. On my side, i stopped using WidgetBucks simply because i didn't had any website which only targeted US and Canadian citizens. But i guess all are troubles are over with the very recent development by WidgetBucks or in more general by Mpire Corporation. Today, WidgetBucks launched it's new International CPM ads that would be included in our widgets itself. It's basically a CPM ads for non US/Canada traffic. Of course this is going to help publishers in a big way, specially those who have blend…

AGLOCO Is Dead

AGLOCO "Own The Internet" You may have seen it's banner somewhere on my blog till few days back. Official news is that AGLOCO is dead. We're done with AGLOCO. The only reason i know of is that they did not have enough left to support AGLOCO's operating costs. According to email sent to all AGLOCO'S memebers, they were using their savings to fund the operations. And now since they cannot use their savings anymore, it's an end for a very unique concept by AGLOCO. I'll have to agree with John Chow. He says that AGLOCO was a good idea that was poorly executed. Yes, that the bottomline. R.I.P. AGLOCO. Update: (December 13, 2007) I just received the mail from AGLOCO's team. Here is a copy of it: Dear Sharat, We would like to update you on the status of AGLOCO's operations. We continue to believe in the AGLOCO concept, but our revenue is currently not sufficient to give Members…
