Web browser and life

The difference between a Web browser and life is, there is no "Back" button in life.

My startup

Since the past few months, me and my friend Shabaz have been toiling hard to develop the website which I have been envisioning since a year. Finally the website is nearing completion and will go live on the Web in a week :)
Just one word "Information" holds the key!

Inspirational words!

"$400 million? For just email? Who is this kid, and how the hell did he do it?"

Definition of Indian Muslim

Maulana Abul Kalam Azad, one of the greatest freedom fighters of India said:

"I am a Musulman and proud of the fact. Islam's splendid traditions of thirteen hundred years are my inheritance. I am unwilling to lose even the smallest part of this inheritance.

In addition, I am proud of being an Indian. I am part of that indivisible unity that is Indian nationality. I am indispensable to this noble edifice. Without me this splendid structure of India is incomplete. I am an essential element which has gone to build India. I can never surrender this claim.

It was India's historic destiny that many human races and cultures and religions should flow to her. One of the last of these caravans was that of the followers of Islam."

Movement and Revolution

Movement: Its temporary. It goes certain distance and stops.
Revolution: Keeps coming back again and again. Never stops.

One should always start a revolution, not a movement.

What Michael Dell says about Internet

"Every business should have a Web site, but keeping it up to date and making it better to use than the phone is a challenge. What I see coming is increased use of recorded and live video as bandwidth increases. But to get people to look at your Web site at all, you need to promote it in every aspect of your communications, from business cards and the boxes your products are shipped in to advertising. Your whole business should be built around having a Web site because that's where your best customers--and your toughest competition--will be.

"You can also enhance partnerships with suppliers and track inventory using the Net. And employees should be encouraged to monitor the industry for competition, opportunities, news and best practices."

- Michael Dell, CEO, Dell Inc.

WWW and web browsers

Tim Berners Lee invented the World Wide Web while working at CERN to provide a way to organize information among the reaserchers. He also invented the first web browser which was called WorldWideWeb (note there is no space in between) and later changed its name to Nexus. Interestingly, Nexus had WYSIWYG capabilities and it was supposed to be a platform to read as well as edit information. But some how the next generation of web browsers shifted to read-only mode.
Now we have websites like wikipedia and digg which have both read and write capabilities, which was one of the fundamental purposes of creating the world wide web and the browser.
This link takes you to a wikipedia webpage which shows a list of web browsers organized into categories.
Do add any valid web browser you think is missing and most importantly, do organize the browsers according to a category called "WYSIWYG". For example, Nexus had WYSIWYG features. Because the whole purpose of creating the web was not just to publish content from the server side but to also edit/add content from the client side.

Online business vs Offline business

Online, small businesses fail to act on the fundamental reality of how people use the Web. No one "passes by." They search for "information, information, information."

Offline, it's all about "location, location, location." Put your business where people crowd by... and you're all set. Get your cash register ready!
