Do shifting of Jobs from BIG to small companies help you build your career

My Answer is YES, It does help you a lot.
Here is a small example which should explain every thing before that have a look at the illustration

What do you gain in a Large / Big Company?

  1. Good Salaries
  2. Good Position

What do you loose?

  1. You are lost in bunch of herds
  2. You just do a mechanical job, no mind, just work
  3. passion towards work is lost


What do you gain in small company?

  1. Self respect for your work
  2. Learning curve is high ( multifaceted job roles )
  3. You problems are always in reach for it to be solved

What you loose?

  1. Nothing but money.
  2. TIME, you end up coming late to home, because you have more work to finish

So what I suggest is that if you want to build a stronger career.
You need to shift from BIG to small start-ups where people look at you as a role model and it is the right opportunity to learn new skill-sets as most start-ups will lesser people and more work
As you learn more skillset you need to encash them at the right time move to BIGGER company learn some new standards, trend in the market etc, you make money move to smaller company again, but you would have noticed the graph the curve tend to go up the negative side as companies too become big over a period of time
PS:This is my perception as I have experienced with my friends and myself, if you think, you probably know that passion is the one which drives you from home to office you could choose to be at midsized orgainisation where you get money and be passionate about your work. Once you are stabilized in your career, you could choose to be anywhere and do your passion.

Web Browser Wars, Will Firefox loose this time with IE 7?


Internet Explorer or FireFox

Let me give you an insight of how much is the current share of Internet Explorer with Fire Fox, I found this link from w3counter.com


Amazingly Firefox is catching up or rather I should say Phenomenally it is catch up. But how many of us actually use Firefox and
who could be they?
Techies, rest of the world still believes in IE.

What is the advantage IE has which firefox doesn’t?

The OS integration or rather the bundling of browser with OS, let us say Vista gets released, I am sure most of the corporate world will move to Vista and the will continue to use IE and most companies don’t allow new software to be installed so quickly. As far as the home user, I am sure they are going to extend their support to IE. Who would take the pain of download the Browser and installing them, most home users are novice, they don’t want any problems with installation etc

The Next Campaign what FireFox should be doing at their website, Place an order for a free copy of firefox, delivered at your doorstep with in 7 working days.

This could actually bother microsoft.
I feel our Mighty FireFox will loose the battle this time, with IE 7

Humble Request of Developer
Me being a developer I have a problem of following up two coding styles for each browser, either one should survive this battle. or I don’t mind both surviving in this world all I would ask for is the consistency of the standards both of them needed to follow.

Red Swoosh – File sharing as diffrernt concept


I am quiet thrilled about this product as such amazing p2p file-sharing utility. Amazing concept
How do you actually download files using a torrent, which we usually visit some torrent listing site, find the url and start downloading

How about, you create your own list on your website and you and your friends start downloading a file of your/our interest and the best part is you get the file much much faster.

Conclusion:
The best part is download and worst part is usability

  1. you can’t change password
  2. you are given separate url to show statistics on your download and bandwidth etc
  3. and bad navigation

any ways here is the link
Keep the flag flying

A good Example for bad usability

GoDaddy Sucks

I had been to their site and tried to book a domain name and take a hosting service, they show you different offers and eod no offers club with the main hosting plans.

It is better they take all the bubbles and let the customer choose to pay more and have a trouble less userexperience

I wasted around 2 hours, hmmm….n

Show me your links I will tell who you are?

Does the title seems to annoy you, just because I am about to discover what you surfed all night and day, what were you interest on, well I know you could be hiding yourself behind a firewall still I could predict who you are.

The saying goes like this “Show me your friends, I will tell you are?” sorry folks, the title was rhyming
What I am talking about is the social tagging which you have been doing all the days/nights/months/years.

Do you remember, there was a time when we use to tell our browsers to have the cookies off and will visit the site with javascript disabled

How come did we change all of a sudden?

There were few thieves, now there are plenty?
Search engines , banking or service based sites were the ones we allowed to sniff. Now it is everyone who could smell others (bad odour, refreshing smell). All you need is hacker and few beers and it could be all yours.

Just google for “why people disabled cookies” or “why people disable javascript” I believe you are better googlers than me, Doesn’t it shock you.
few sites which were only tracking you and now it is the whole community know what you are up too.

I am not blaming the social tagging, I do tag I do blog, just a thought
Why google is alone able to get in to all the business what they want?

Knowledge is power my friend
Just a log in is enough to track

  1. every search you make
  2. every shopping ( checkout)
  3. every penny you make (ad words)
  4. and lot more (all it needs is imagination)

What happened to your privacy?
It just turned to business, most probably they didn’t sell what you did, but they gained the knowledge on your interest.

Imagine every search and all it takes a few queries on the database to know what is the current trend, well if you have this data you could also make millions

I don’t say don’t tag, don’t make it too public ;) so remember it could be your worst nightmare

What do men with power want?
More Power  ;)
