Techtribe is a social networking place for techies. Its a San Fransisco based company whose objective is to connect various IT companies in the world on a common platform where they can share their innovative ideas. On september 14, Rohit Agarwal, the CEO of Techtribe met Kiran Karnik, the President of NASSCOM. On this occassion, Mr.Rohit Agarwal said "All big companies such as Microsoft, Apple, Sun developed when diverse people got together to share ideas. So techTribe believes in connecting rather than competing."

The company would also award Rs 10 lakh each month to an innovative idea collaboratively developed by professionals using the techTribe platform. Mr.Kiran Karnik also had few words of which this statement attracted everyone "Innovation thrives best in diversity. So, when people thinking differently come together would create a platform for ideas to germinate". He strongly believed that lack of mentoring, networking and lack of finances prevented talented Indians from innovations. Techtribe claims to be the right step in encouraging innovative IT professionals.
Apart from creating and joining Tribes (communities), one can write blogs and articles, find answers to their doubts in 'Answers' section and search for jobs.

No security to Privacy and Identity on the net

No am not talking about hacking am not at all talking about porn sites or low grade sites. I am talking about Yahoo! and Google.

According to a report by a consortium of telecoms and finance companies, including BT, Yahoo and Lloyds TSB, 8% of internet users have been victims of online fraud. Almost double that proportion know someone who has been targeted by criminals through their computers.

In the year 2003, a Chinese pro-democratic activist, Wang Xiaoning was arrested by the police with the help of his private information that Yahoo provided the police. Wang had been using an anonymous e-mail account to participate in a Yahoo Group to disseminate his political views. He advocated open elections, a multi-party system, and separation of powers within the government. In addition, he called the Chinese government despotic.

Google was thought to be very strict and protective in regard to the identity and private details of its users until recently, when three software professionals were arrested by the Pune police with the help of Google India.co. Google traced the telephone number that was indexing the profiles of these people and supplied this information to Cyber crime officials of Pune. All these guys did was they used bad language against a king named Shivaji who used to live centuries ago. This was surely bad behavior but the question here is 'Do they deserve to get arrested?' A Warning from the Google or account removal would have been enough punishment.

Lets put aside freedom of speech and expression and concentrate on the privacy and identity threat onliners are facing. This is indeed an ethical break down on the part of these online service providers. Another example of forgotten ethics by Yahoo is the recent removal of Iran from its list of world countries in its sign up page. Where does the fault lie? Is it with the officials working in the gain companies or is it that the companies should revive and tighten their privacy policy?

Dont Cross 15!!

Never send more than 15 messages at MyBlogLog or else you will land yourself in an extremely embarrassing situation. This is the 'decent' message which you would be facing in case you cross the limit of 15- Message:* Now just slow down there, rock star! It appears you've become a bit overzealous with your messaging. Remember, you are only allowed to send 15 messages per day. No sweat though, you can start sending messages again tomorrow.

Go on, get some fresh air, enjoy the great outdoors!

To my surprise and horror I found this extremely uneasy and unconfortable message from MyBlogLog server. This does not suit a site like MyBloglog to act so irresponsibly.

You can even hide one set of friends from another set and restrict unwanted users to message you or gain access to your profile. This is a class and decent social networking site.

Orkut Banned? Firefox banned?

Are you getting these messages?-
Orkut is banned you fool, The administrators didnt write this program guess who did?? MUHAHAHA!!
If yes, its a virus named w32.USBWorm. I have searched and found out how to remove this bug.

Press CTRL+ALT+DEL and go to the processes tab
Look for svchost.exe under the image name. There will be many but look for the ones which have your username under the username
Press DEL to kill these files. It will give you a warning, Press Yes
Repeat for more svchost.exe files with your username and repeat. Do not kill svchost.exe with system, local service or network service!
Now open My Computer
In the address bar, type C:\heap41a and press enter. It is a hidden folder, and is not visible by default.
Delete all the files here
Now go to Start --> Run and type Regedit
Go to the menu Edit --> Find
Type "heap41a" here and press enter. You will get something like this "[winlogon] C:\heap41a\svchost.exe C:\heap(some number)\std.txt"
Select that and Press DEL. It will ask "Are you sure you want to delete this value?", click Yes
Now close the registry editor.Now the virus is gone. But be sure to delete the autorun.inf file and any folder whose name ends with .exe in the pen drive.
