The open-source Gold Rush

Let's tally up the list:

Zimbra - $350 million (on ~$10 million (guessing here, but guessing at the high end, I think) of trailing revenues) - September 2007
XenSource - $500 million (on $1 million in trailing revenues) - August 2007
JBoss - $350 million (on $27 million in 2006 revenues) - June 2006
Sleepycat - $35-50 million (on ~$7 million in trailing revenues, is my best guess) - February 2006
Gluecode - $10 million (on very little in trailing revenues, less than $1 million, I believe) - May 2005
SUSE - $210 million (can't remember revenues - I think $30-40 million) - November 2003
Ximian - ~$50 million (I can't remember - on $1 million or so in trailing revenues) - August 2003
What's the trend? Bigger. We are in the midst of a Gold Rush, as Dana Blankenhorn has written. The rules of software business are being rewritten, and those who understand them will make a lot of money for shareholders...and themselves.

While the early days of open source saw a few wild valuations (Ximian comes to mind, though I still think it was a good move by Novell, as it brought open-source DNA to the company), it's only recently that we've seen open source break $100 million valuations on very little revenue.

Clearly, the market feels like the best is yet to come.

And so it is. Now is a fantastic time to be involved in redefining the software industry to one that focuses on customers, not licenses. You should join.

The power of wimax internet

Did you ever wondered the effect of nation wide wimax network ? How life is going to be simple.

Today my car got a problem of security light started blinking and car was not starting. The car manual said - contact dealer. Phoned a friend, he googled ...
and said ...

put the key, turn it to on positions keep it for 10 minutes, again off and redo the same, after 10 minutes over ( total 20 minutes ), off and start the car.

worked well, was wondering how useful will be if my car had a laptop and its connected to wimax ( the friend will not be always available ).

same GPS ... working with some online maps software -- showing traffic etc and showing me positions ...

Integrated with my buddy list, seeing him driving towards me or near me ..

buying a $10 voip account and using it with a wimax enabled pocket pc and no bills for US and Canada calls.

and a lot more ...

be ready for that great time....

Rama, Krishna were dravidians

Is the gods dravidans, yes i mean Hindu gods Rama, Krishna etc.

why ? both of them were brown skinners.

Wikipedia search resulted in some news about rakshasas.Rakshasa's were described to have large bodies, probably due to their continuous life in cold climates over snow covered mountains [Ref wikipedia ]. This means they were/are whites or more in white color like Aryans (reason in cold countries/places we know people will be more white in color).

Krishna is discribed as "Neela karvarna" means the person with color of blue clouds ( more blueish black in color - a Dravidian color )

This means the people describes as Aryans and Whites are Rashasas and Rama,Krishna were dravidians.

ATV - All Terrain vehicle in India

ATV - All Terrain vehicle. Was reading more in this. In developed countries ATVs are used for farming activities and other recreation. Countries like New Zealand, Australia, Canada use them in farms with a lot farm attachments like Seed Spreader, Plow, Loader, Fertilizer spreader.

Wondering its usage in countries like India.

India ?? - No ATV but a lot of 100 - 250 cc motorcycles. Was reading Bajaj auto and TVS goes on a war for patent infringement.

Why not these people work together and make good engines than fighting each other ? Do they don't know Hondas and Suzuki's make good engines than them. Look at west - Pontiac sells Vibe which has complete Toyota engine against Toyota matrix ( same car under Toyota badge).

I was wondering about an ATV using a good 200 cc - 300 cc India made engine ( lets look which engines and patents work ) for normal farm use. It should help people to do most farm needs without much money. May be these usage may make better engines.

Another idea was to try them on water scooters. Let these engines mature.

Social Networking: How Many Portals You Need?

A few days ago, Unni posted about the malicious and criminal use of social networking portals. I know this debate has been there for a long time. In fact, like most of our other topics of interest, this one keeps coming back to our drawing rooms and cafe tables every once in a while with a new story break, a murder, a kidnap, a virus, a fraud...

We follow up such stories with great interest, collect every detail, add a few more hits to those sites, debate vigorously on using this new media discreetly, blast those unscrupulous fellows, and yeah, get back to our social networking portals and daily chores with the same interest and continue with the life just as always.

Well, I don't have anything against the social networking portals. In fact, I'm a regular visitor on at least a couple of such sites, Orkut and LinkedIn. But there is something that annoys me every time I check my inbox: someone has sent me an invite from x portal, and another from y portal. And, to my surprise, this someone and the other are my friends already connected to me on Orkut or LinkedIn.

I could never figure out why someone who is already connected to me requires me to get connected on yet another portal, just to add to my collection of user names and passwords? Or is it that they think I don't have anything worthwhile to do than browsing through profiles on x, y, and z portals?

And then, again, a couple of days later--many time after you are trapped, too--,they write to you, apologizing for the invite, saying it was auto-generated by that portal after trawling through their address books. Trawl through their address book? Sounds phishy, doesn't it? Well, yeah, it is another form of phishing. But then, when you ask more questions, you know. The portals didn't really invest in phishing techniques and technologies. Why should they, when there are so many naive users--techies, managers, journos, teachers, from all walks of life--who are more than willing to give their email IDs and passwords without any hesitation to anything that looks like a networking portal?! All my friends happily entered their email IDs and passwords and allowed those portals to get all that information that they wanted.

And some of those lucky ones had the good fortune of seeing their names on some mailing lists to which they never had sent a mail, despite wanting to. And that gave them a chance to send one more mail, to those 'august' mailing lists, apologizing for the inadvertent invites. Well, learning the hard way, someone might think. But then, who learns?

Maybe the one who fell in hot water, but for the others, that is just fun until they themselves fall prey to another such thing...

Till that happens, happy social networking! Enjoy!

gOOgle phOne

talks on google phone :-), says a five facts

The operating system will be a "mobile variant of Linux" capable of running Java Virtual Machines.

Second, all the on-board applications will be Java-based, including the music/video player.

Third, the user interface is based in Java, is "very responsive", features a "search box", and will be "typical of mobile phones."

Fourth, the web browser -- also in Java -- will have pan and browse.

Lastly, there was initially one prototype, but since then the mobile OS has been seen running on between 3 and 5 devices, all of which rock the QWERTY.

Our view : google phone will be a mobile device capable of surfing internet (may be WIFI or WIMAX or 1X or EVDO or GPRS ( we dont expect GPRS because of low speed).
It will not be the normal mobile phone and will be running a linux OS and capable of running all the google app including gmail, search, talk ( expect call out and callin from googletalk with a dial pad ).google apps, maps youtube videos and all other google applications. The main focus will be adv displays with content.

It's time of voip and web to common man, every body needs it.

$48.6 million after taxes --

Friday night, four lucky people won the Mega Millions $330 million jackpot. That kind of number lends itself to fantasies of unlimited luxury. But the truth is, megamillions just aren't what they used to be.

A one-quarter share of the jackpot is $82.5 million. If the winner elects a lump-sum payment, which financial analysts suggest, they're down to $48.6 million after taxes. Already, unfortunately, the brand new millionaire is forced to make some compromises.
