Birth of Youtube......

History of a world's largest video sharing portal... 

At early 2005, there they had a little dinner party, at the apartment in San Francisco and nobody ever thought that something huge is just about to happen... So later sometimes, for a guy who was there wanted to share a video clip which happened to be taken at that party with one of other friends who apparently was absent to the party-time, But unfortunately there were not much ("any" to be exact) such leads to get this done, hence.... the root thought to give the birth of this giant web processing application came out from the 3 PayPal employees who happened to owe the whole story above, namely  Chad Hurley, Steve Chen, and Jawed Karim. 

This is the very first video uploaded to the YouTube, happened to be uploaded at 8:27PM on Saturday April 23rd, 2005. The video was shot by Yakov Lapitsky at the San Diego Zoo and uploaded by Jawed Karim. The video goes with the quote of "Me at the zoo"...

Today, YouTube has been the world's 3rd most popular website,(Over 3 billion videos viewed/day) and 48 hours of video are uploaded every minute, resulting in nearly 8 years of content uploaded every day; Over 12 million people are connected and auto-sharing to at least one social network; and 150 years of YouTube video are watched every day on Facebook; in every minute more than 500 tweets contain YouTube links. 

It's huge, its growing every day, even in a faster rate we can ever think about.. the current stats of the most popular/liked and viewed videos can be found in here anytime....

Take home message : Do more parting... Parties you do today may lead to miracles... may not create charms today... may be in the party of Tomorrow...... Just dont stop... At the end of the time, you will... at least.. will have the joy... though nothing much came out of it... ;-)

HipHop + Java + Geeks...

In the cubicles representin’ for my JAVA homies… 

Okey now you know where I am getting to eh!!!..  LOL.... There was this nice HipHop feat created aiming for  "Java Life" sometime back, which really happened to take me, well, may be due to the facts that HH is my most favoite rap music culture and Java might be my best programming language. It really touches with the beat and brings some weedy feeling when you have followed the lyrics.

It's street HipHop, indeed. check it out!!!!

Aaaand, this is about making java Life.. These geeks really look like programming freaks, ain't they?

The play of “Twitter” in Rugby Worldcup 2011

Let me start it like this…..

When He was at grade 6 in the college… One day, one best friend along with whom he used to come/leave the college asked him to join their crew to play some sports, what they called ..something*#%@$*#.. after school, which he didn’t mean to make, but utterly had to be in there however…  that turned out to be a start-off of a very bright sports life for a national player at the last in the county. The era was around 1993…The sport they referred was Rugby… And that  little kid who honored as a national player was….. Well I will make a separate post about him later on… ;-) and the story goes on…...

Coming forward to the present… I’m gonna as 2 questions, 
How many of you were in touch with Rugby world cup which happed to be enclosed with a great set of memos? Yeah I know...Most of you ;-)  And..
How many of you following the championship on Twitter?... well may be not all of you… 

Some might question, what can a 140-character long string exactly do on this whole internet and at least why the people are into talking about it.

Getting back to the topic, let's have a look on how much impact the Twitter has introduced to the social media arena on this special event Rugby world cup, what kind role that it had actually been, and how it’d been important for the followers to use it other than just watching it on the web or TV and enjoying themselves. 

First have look how Rugby World Cup 2011 Social Media Strategy was conducted in order for the success of the event.

The micro-blogging nature of Twitter had been amazingly active to produce more than 4 million tweets just the tag of # RWC2011 that consisted of more than 1.5 million just during the finals. It had been estimated around 3 million tweets had been released just on the day of finals on. RWCFinal had been a worldwide trend during the same time. Just check out how it has been during the play time on Twitter; the eagerness of activities with @RugbyWorldCup

Millions of users have been amazingly into updating their twitters and letting the world whats really going on in the field. They even mightn't had thought how many number of hits they will get for those little strings.

The Rugby worldcup 2011 official site and their social media section says that, the Twitter had involved in a very major role in getting the event into the next level and with those massive stats, it can be concluded that, the people actually do this.. they follow on what they want so crazily.. On the other hand, people who account for those massive stats, they spread them all tweets no matter where they are and who will actually follow them. 

~~ Ask not what your twitter can do for you, ask what you can do for your twitter

A walk to Remember….

It’s been like about more than 2 years that I have given up all blogging, soon after I got my first AdSense check of 100$ from Google I remember. It’s really ironic why I did stop that at that kinda stage where already had 2 blogs with Google rank of 4 & 5 with some nice commercial step-ins at hand to continue everything with a nice perfection. It’s sort of hardly could imagine how it would have been I myself, and where would I be by now, if I hadn't done so by that time. hmmmm... You know, the Past’s the Past. Now, there is this new inspiration, a motivation I would say, for me to step back into blogging and this time, it’s just not the childish aggressive pal who was new to the field, but... as a bit of matured engineer with a lot more expedience + most impressively, a true lover and explore on Social Media wave, a flying topic to be mastered in the new era of IT.

Not just like in earlier... No Basketball, No daily outings, No long hangouts, No overnight work for continues days when couldn’t get the Webshpere servers up and running... Nope, not anymore…. It's been well focused and more matured (I think ;)) on all aspects of the life now. Though I don’t believe the fact that it’s just nothing to get more than 500 chaps on FB and about 100 on Twitter, it's still important to keep the crowd grown around me, keep doing what others admire on me the most wholeheartedly, finding more and more means on what I'm exactly looking for in the life; which keep me going, keep me alive on this digital world, the least.

Just one fact to ponder & emphasis, if someone’s inspiration towards the life is keen and so keen that even he himself can’t believe at the end of line what kind of belief that has dragged him into that far of success, well then, you will be just impressed and admired by thousands out there, including the one ones who tried to pulled you back timely. And, that’s kind of memo I m trying to recall with my first post in here, it’s merely a walk to Remember, Indeed….
