The Good Blogs

Here is an innovative approach to get the attention of web surfers... with regard to some recently published blog posts in the net. The Good Blogs introduces an ad-supported free service that can increase a blog's readership. Marketing of blogs is certainly the most demanding feature of the hour, and TheGoodBlogs capitalizes on this need.

Goal: To create distributed communities of bloggers who actively promote each other every time readers visit their blogs and in doing so,
  • dramatically increase the number of people who read their blogs, and
  • seamlessly introduce new bloggers and fresh content to their readers.

Its a new solution to an old problem. I wonder why Technorati did not come up with such a service long time ago? Honestly, I liked this service, and it really works.

Launching 'Fundoo Web'

Today, an offshoot of my first webapp is born. I named it 'Fundoo Web' :)

'Fundoo Web' is a mashup search tool that enable users to retrieve information from several sources in a single click. Hence, the user will save time & can increase his scope without any additional effort.

It comprises of several modules floating on the webpage. Each module interacts with a specific source to query and display the search results. The Ajax interface comes in handy to refine the keywords, or get more content from any single module.

Modules currently in action are... Yahoo Web, Flickr, News, Yahoo Answers, Amazon, and Map.

Start playing with it, and hope you like it!

A Developer's Dream

I came across a well-written article that discusses the hidden desire in most of the software developers... Here is an excerpt that tells you what.

They all want to know how to start a company, get VC funding, sell the company, make millions and retire at a very young age.

The article also gives us an insight into what it takes to achieve this dream. It lists 3 things for you to create a software company.
  1. First, you need to be dedicated
  2. The second thing is you need to be a decent developer
  3. Finally, you need a little bit of money
I liked the explanation that was given to the first point. Give it a quick read if you have time...
