- I see ‘Photo Tags’ in Orkut. Is that something new or I never saw it before? #
Found this video on a friend’s Orkut profile. It is nostalgic, but it made me realize something I never thought about before. This video is 5 minutes and 48 seconds long. That is a few lakhs Rupees worth air time. I remember that the video was aired 2-3 times a day, which means a lot of missing revenues. No wonder Doordarshan isn’t profitable or has high quality programming.
Obviously I don’t know what exactly was going on in DD’s offices. May be they did not have enough advertisers and used these videos as fillers.
Update: Ashish confirmed that they still play the song.
I realized that I get Doordarshan on Direct TV. If you subscribe to Indian package on Direct, it is channel # 2025 (right after Cricket Plus)

Plurk is ‘enhanced’ version of Twitter. IMO Twitter got popular because of it is really easy to use. In my busy life, I don’t have enough time to see what my Karma is or some complicated timelines. Twitter works for me because it is a free form short messaging. Back in the days when Twitter’s IM worked fine, I rarely logged on to the web interface.
I think Plurk makes things complicated and might features over done. Although it is great that they have all the major IM support. At this time Plurk looks like a great tool for teenagers (like myspace crowd). They’d love to collect Karma and get starred etc. I don’t see Obama lifestreaming on Plurk any time soon*. Or Jet Blue using it for customer service*.
Right now I am interested to see if this Python based messaging app be able to scale well, unlike Twitter.
* I’ve been wrong in the past.
PS: I am back from India.
