New Blog, New Beginning

I have switched location of my blog to www.opensourceadoption.com.

As Carlos Castaneda said, “Things don’t change. You change your way of looking, that’s all.”

Following the acquisition of Koders.com, an increasingly larger community of Black Duck customers and our expanding presence in the open source software development community, we have decided to make my blog a communications hub by (1) establishing it as a separate website, (2) adding more analytics for us, and (3) connecting it to social media sites which have user-generated news links such as Digg, Reddit, del.icio.us and StumbleUpon. These changes are more than superficial. It turns out that all my efforts to increase traffic actually helped BlogSpot more than it helped bring readers to my Blog.

In addition, I have changed the name of the blog to “Open Source Adoption” to reflect the change in the focus of my blog to more of a focus on open source software, software development, and business related concerns.

These changes are designed to help bring together Black Duck’s and Koders.com’s communities.

It is important to note, however, that I will maintain the personal writing style, stories and insights into culture and life. For example, I hope to update my blog posting on tomatoes this year. This blog will therefore not be strictly about business.

Gentle reader: Let me make the following recommendations:

  • Please update your bookmarks. This blog’s new URL is opensourceadoption.com.
  • Please update RSS feeds. The links have changed, so you have to update your RSS feeds.
  • If you don’t like RSS feeds, subscribe by email. We have added this email subscription feature based on reader requests.
  • Please use Digg, del.icio.us, Reddit and StumbleUpon user-generated news and blog links. You may need to create an account on these services, but it’s well worth it.

I'll see everyone on the other side.

The world is often termed as a global village nowadays. We cannot ignore the instrumental role of IT companies in making the world what it is today. In fact the information and communication technology has completely overhauled the face of the world. Apart from other things the spurt of software companies even led to the rise of standard of living of many people who work for them. If you are looking to work for a software development company try and master one of these technological languages such as .Net, Java or Php.
