New Communication

I have got nothing to share, neither anything to tell. I have no thoughts neither any views. I have no reason neither any goals. Here I am, just giving my fingers an exercise of a day. Fingers moving up and down, eyes following the moving cursor in my laptop and brain pumping a THINK tank. Lets blog, I say to myself.

Haven't been writing anything. Not cause I am busy or that I have no time. I simple have nothing to blog.

With the SOCIAL MEDIA hype and all people going nuts. I am just lost. People these days want to say a lot in just few words.... I guess we call it tweeting. The words are getting shorter and the feelings are getting lost... That is what I feel most of the time but may be its a changing world. A new world, where communication is something entirely different.

This made be remember one term its called "NewSpeak", a term used by George Orwell in his book 1984. If you have read the book or know about it. What this New Speak, is something similar to the New Changing ways of communication. Its language where the words have been deleted and emotion has been ripped away from the words so that when people communicate they are exactly telling each other what they want to. Though the main aim of "NewSpeak " was discouraging INDIVIDUALISM. I don't know how far this new communication of ours are going forward. I can only think.

May be I am wrong in this but its my thoughts. A changing ways of communication.

  1. I remember the "Newspeak", George Orwell talks in his book. It is gooder, meaning substituting the word better or best with gooder or gooderer. The book is fantastic.
    Since you liked this dystopian novel, I want to know if you read Aldous Huxley's 'Brave New World' or not? That one is gooderer, trust me. I loved Brave New World more than I did 1984.

Good Ad Versus Bad Ad

At InRev , for past few days we have been working on our new project. The project is about collaborative blogging, from the blogger around the world. As Bhupendra and I have been blogging for long time, with his immense experience, our team has been working to revamp the globalthoughtz and create a new blogging experience. In this site, we are planning to add a section where people can add their advertisement. We thought lets start by our own :), with already so many products on the line, it was obvious. So there goes an effort to create a small 128 px by 128 px logo. If you are a designer, you know that designing is a very time consuming process. For hours, you just test around with colors. Remember there are 256 X 256 X 256 combination of colors!! Its hard job selecting one. Lets start with F-Cube : In short F-cube is a Free Economic Reporting Site. Let me exhibit some Ad made for it and its pros and cons. (Please don't click on the image. Wait till the end. Thank You) OK

Selling a Comb to a Bald Person?

Here my friend, Ashay, put it very truly to me that the marketer's most challenge is to sell a comb to a bald. First, I am not trying to justify anything here. But I just couldn't help thinking how on earth am I going to sell a comb to a bald. How? Just how? I kept pondering upon it till late night. I actually had very few options with me, the first was obviously to use Google and Find? :) But, I didn't do that. Some how I was still in confusion. Then just before going to sleep, I had an discussion with my other friend, on types of marketing on issues related to customer centric marketing. Hmm. Then some how it hit me. I went back to basic on my own philosophy, sell things that is needed. So here is a small anecdote I prepared : Sale Person   : Hello sir. How are you? Do you have a time, plzzz? Bald Person : (Almost confused and in social causality) OK OK what is it? I don't have time. Sale Person    : Here sir, do you want to by a comb?  Bald Person  : Can'

Fearful Consumer Market

Consumer market is something, I always feared. During my engineering days, I knew it was one area where I would not find myself working. I always feared the harsh competition of the market. I worried if ever, anything I made would sustain in the market. Or how people would react to it? You can say, I feared criticism and all the yap yap of group of people, who knows only how to suggest but not to act. Thus, I kept my interest into custom projects and not related to anything that a single consumer would use, rather it was something of community service. But with changing time, I knew I had to make a plunge into the ocean of consumer market and face the competition. "Be a man! Dude" That is what I would say to myself. I knew I couldn't swim, but I had to give it a try.  Journey into the consumer market is like that of 20000 Leagues Under The Sea . There are so many different kinds of creatures around to look and be fascinated. Some are small living in tiny groups. Some are
