W3C opens India Office

Pallab had this entry on The World Wide Web Consortium (W3C) opening its India Office at Noida, India hosted by the Centre for Development of Advanced Computing (C-DAC Noida).

Seen as as "the national contact point for W3C activities in India," this India Office of W3C will be instrumental in promoting efforts in local languages, broaden W3C's geographical base, and encourage international participation in W3C Activities.

The site has a listing of W3C Prospectus W3C related events in India, Indian members of the W3C, Latest News & Newsletters, and Mailing List

At the top of Indian Members List of the W3C is Department of Information Technology, Government of India, (http://mit.gov.in) Just out of curiosity I checked for its conformance to W3C Recommendations and other standards with W3C Markup Validation Service. Here is the result: Failed validation, 80 errors.

The website of CDAC India, second on the list, was down. But I am sure we'll find even more surprising results!

Startups for a stronger Resume?

When the whole web is abuzz with keywords such as Ajax, Web 2.0, Meebo and all, there is some uncertainity about how this new Internet Bubble will shape up.

Mike at Techdirt writes that some of these new startups may be only to actually stand out for the crowd and act as a strong resume.

While the complaint is that so many of these companies are built to flip rather than to be sustainable businesses, some are noticing that this process is really just a better way for some to stand out and get a job. You build a company quickly and cheaply that gets some attention, and a bigger company comes along to scoop up your company, giving you a nice "signing bonus." In effect, the purpose of these companies is to act as a strong resume to stand out from the crowd.

Pottermania

I'll have to admit that the nature of Pottermania is beyond my comprehension capabilities! As more and more fans of all ages and countries immerse themselves in Harry’s adventures, adding fuel to the belief that Pottermania is inescapable, I am purely and simply baffled by its ability to appeal to all ages.

Bored by the inactivity prevailing in this muggle world, I began to read the first one of the series and immediately concluded that reading beyond the tenth leaf was something impossible. Undeterred, I watched the first movie. I Hated it. But with the evil-wizard becoming apple of more and more eyes with every passing moment, around the world, it could only have been something wrong with me and so I watched the second movie. And then it became so easy to establish that I loathed the Potter Kid!

Just a passing thought - "Would it be a bad idea for a Potter special appearance in Oliver Twist? The poor kid could do with some wizardry."

Gmail Chat Disabled

The fact that it happened does not surprise me but that it took so long for our network administrators to figure it out does.

And if you are wondering how do you disable Gmail's chat features on your network, you only need locking DNS lookups to chatenabled.mail.google.com, by returning 127.0.0.1.
