The Myth of Google being a “One Trick Pony”

March 5, 2010

I just saw a Post that talks about Google launching it’s Android Operating System’s latest version 2.1 on older devices like the Sidekick.

Here is what is fascinating about this discussion. While Google’s revenues are largely advertising based, unlike other firms that have experienced such hyper growth who typically saturate a market, Google continues to have plenty of runway in growing their ad revenues. The percent of ad revenues that Google has is still fairly low.

In fact, one could foreseeably see Google having a single search based revenue stream comprising 80 to 90% of their revenues while maintaining aggressive growth rates.

Doculabs’ Whitepaper on Enterprise Social Computing and Collaboration

February 9, 2010

I am very happy to announce Doculabs’ latest whitepaper that was released earlier today on Social Computing and Collaboration (SC&C) within the enterprise and beyond. If you are interested in receiving your copy of the whitepaper, feel free to email me at

These are very exciting times that we live in. We are witnessing one of the most profound cultural and behavioral transformations of our time, where people are more and more at ease in working transparently and collaboratively with the masses. For example, consider that the Economist had a special report on Social Networking in the issue dated Jan 20-Feb 5, 2010. Mark Zuckerberg of Facebook put it best referring to the behavioral shift due to social networking as “probably the greatest transformative force in our generation, absent a major war”.

Please feel free to email me at for your copy of the whitepaper. Many thanks for your interest and over the next few weeks I will be blogging about the key scenarios within enterprises that stand to benefit the most from social computing and collaboration. Look forward to hearing everyone’s thoughts on these discussions so that we can collectively better understand and define the impact and associated opportunity of social computing and collaboration for the enterprise and beyond.
