Metis Talent Management brand new website goes live

Last fortnight was a joy, as we came to the launch of Metis Talent Management's website. Metis is a Singapore based organisation that advises clients on Talent Management with a primary focus on Talent Development and Organisation Design. Best wishes to team Metis!

The other great thing is how folks at Metis approached this by going in for a full overhaul, including getting a new logo and brand colours. Do leave your comments on what you feel about the website and the logo!!

PageRank Mayhem, Infosys, Accenture downgraded too.

Before

The Washington Post suffered it. Amit Agarwal talks about it. Rishi Raj laments it. Mani Karthik says he does not care. A zillion posts are already up on Google's recent PageRank update.
After



While the web is full of commentary on Google's recent PageRank update, here's some food for thought. We compared the PageRank of some of the leading IT Companies corporate websites in June and October. It is quite puzzling that Infosys.com and Accenture.com suffered a PR drop by one notch from 8 & 9 respectively to 7 & 8 now. In the same timeframe, TCS.com has gone up one level from 7 to 8 level. It is also notable that in the same period the Google reported inbound link to Infosys.com has dropped, which is quite mystifying.

When one compares the Google reported backlink figures among the top names in IT industry, IBM has seen its backlink numbers jump from a high figure of 62,100 to astounding 1,11,000 which perhaps explains its PR 9, before and after.

Most people have speculated that the PR update has affected those sites that have sold text link ads without the nofollow attribute, but that would not apply to Infosys.com and Accenture.com, and perhaps, there are other, less understood factors as well.

As someone said, "my mom will continue to type www.washingtonpost.com to read the news, no matter what PR they have". Well said, that is the habit based consumption, however if conventional wisdom is to be believed, organizations selling services would see their traffic drop in due course.

My sites www.ed6.com has got PR3 launched in June 2007 in this update. I have not links going out except to www.jhelumtechnologies.com

Jhelum Technologies has only one page and rest are under construction and managed to PR 2 where in it was 0 before the update. www.jhelumtechnologies.com has only 3 links coming in from www.ed6.com, www'googlebugs.com and www.goodrecruit.com No directory listing or any other activity for the domain. How can any one explain this?

I am happy I got this PR2 and PR3 for ed6

SO, BUSINESSWORLD PUBLISHES MY LETTER!

I found my letter to the editor carried in the Businessworld issue of 10 Oct 2005!(Click on the image to see a full view)

FROM THE 'SETS' OF THE MOVIE 'GANDHI'

I took this picture from a train as it ambled its way over the bridge on the river Son near Patna (Exact location Koilwar or Koelwar as you choose to spell it)
Discerning folks will recall the scene in the movie 'Gandhi' where a steam loco driven train halts on this bridge(from where this picture is taken) and passengers, including Gandhiji go down to the river. It is a very touching scene as Gandhiji notices a poor lady trying to cover her body with whatever little clothes she could afford and Gandhiji quietly letting go of a cloth that was on his shoulder so that the flow of the water leads the cloth to the lady. I have crossed this bridge so many times and it feels so serene and calm at this place.
Only that this is not the movie set, but the location of one of the historical experiences of …
