Why You Should Turn That Great Idea Into A Product NOW!

I’ve been receiving unexpected surprises for the past few days. I’m not someone who likes surprises but for these, I make an exception.

The first surprise is that I noticed my short URL generator has been receiving a lot of traffic for the past few weeks… and that’s only part of the surprise. shlnk.com has also been receiving daily AdSense clicks for almost a whole week! For almost an entire year before that, it only had two or three clicks total. So this is a welcome improvement.

I’ve also noticed that it has attained a PageRank of 3; this is of no importance for a URL chopper but it’s appreciated nonetheless; thanks to shlnk.com’s users, linkers and Google 🙂

What’s The Big Fuss With Twitter?

These days, you can’t browse the web without finding a link to Twitter. It seems everyone has a Twitter account… yes, I do to. The only reason I registered for Twitter account is to find out what the fuss is about.

For those of you who last got on the net in 2005, let’s just recap what Twitter is.

Twitter’s official definition of itself is as follows:

Twitter is a service for friends, family, and co–workers to communicate and stay connected through the exchange of quick, frequent answers to one simple question: What are you doing?

Wikipedia calls Twitter:

…a free social networking and micro-blogging service that enables its users to send and read other users’ updates known as tweets”.

Personally, I find Twitter to be a highly overrated product with minimal if not zero innovation value. In it’s very essence, Twitter is nothing more than a global short message broadcasting system sandwiched between the social networking loaves of being followed and following others.

After Googling more about Twitter; I’ve been converted from a skeptic to a die hard believer. I’m absolutely certain that Twitter is the best thing that happened to mankind since rubber tires. Read on to find out why.

TM Faces Submarine Cables Issues Again!

Whenever I feel that my Internet connection is acting up again, the next web page I load up will be TM’s news releases page.

I suspected that the increasingly unreliable SMW submarine cables snapped again; was glad to find out that it’s not. Nevertheless, it’s still an equally disruptive circuit fault.

Yet again, TM has demonstrated how poor it is in selecting (or investing in) critical submarine Internet connectivity infrastructure.

I hope that this incident can be rectified much sooner than the ridiculous two weeks they took to fix the previous SMW4 cable issue.

Of course all this won’t spare me from the inquiries I’m bound to receive from my friends and customers hosted on my US-based servers.
