There are times when I feel that many things that we would like to do in our private settings are now being done publicly, specially with the internet and social networks, opening even the most secured locker rooms, for all to see.

Taking my case for example. I have just recently added myself to the Facebook world of millions. Wishing my anonymity and privacy with a group of near and dear ones, I walked the path to instant publicity, immediately opening all my locked rooms and thoughts.

Surprised to see what the internet (mainly google) was recording of my behavior when browsing various websites, logging my every move, and noting my preferences, even notifying others of my likes and dislikes. Was so alarmed to see the large database of my supposedly private information, out in the public.

I am told that it is too late to cover your tracks, and once a path is threaded it is marked with my foot prints (NETPRINTS) for eternity and for everyone willing to observe.

Now that there is no chance of back tracking, I will walk cautiously for a while before I have gathered enough courage to be in PUBLIC EYES with all my vulnerabilities out in the open.

Do let me know what you think, Whether I am bragging or extremely cautious?

Till next time

Have been trying many things recently, specially on the work front. These days have also been difficult as things were not working out at the same pace as planned, nor were the things moving in the same direction as planned. A bit of a haphazard situation during the past month.
Anyhow, the turmoil is part of the twists and turns in this LIFE! As planned though, have been able to move a step closer to developing a website to promote my own personal business. As things start developing, I will post some updates but the most important being that it is quite astonishing to find so many websites of so many people, and then realize the sad truth about them, MOST WEBSITES are redundant. These people have created a space on the world wide web but not been doing much to interest others, or on the flip side, not done anything to accomplish a goal.
IF I am not wrong, most websites are created to fulfil an inner desire to be part of a culture. Something that others will like to participate in, where others will come to post their feelings, where others will be able to share thoughts but sadly most of the websites rarely attract any attention, due to the fact that they do not induce the interest in others to see what they offer.
IF someone can attract a million likes on facebook, why can’t one attract a million visitors to a website????
On the another thought, many websites are part of a commercial venture, where the prospective customer visits a website to look for a product or a service and tries to use a non-physical interaction to buy a physical object. Also sometimes a physical interaction provides a better experience to a non-physical product, like playing video games.

These experiences would tell a person that www would be a fun place to be in, the ever growing online population would be attracted to a new website like bees to a honey comb. Unfortunately, as the history shows, very few of the websites actually get much attention, and the ones that do succeed in gaining the approval of the masses are mainly for features that are offered free to the browsing individual, though he is actually being charged by some mega corporate for just the clicks and key presses.

I would like to continue adding content to this post, and specially if there are comments for or against.

As another great exhibition comes to a close, more people have more interest in visiting Dubai more often, making Dubai another popular destination. Then I remind myself of yet another astonishing fact. Dubai Airport is now declared the busiest international airport in the world, counting the number of passengers that travel through Dubai, outbound, inbound and in transit.

The Travel industry consists of the airline that brings in the passengers, the airports that the passengers pass through to reach their destination. Would the market be saturated, when the airport has the most number of footfall in any given month? What would be the measurement of growth?

Reminding myself of how quickly time passes by. I had just recently written a blog for the Arabian Travel Market (2014) edition thinking of the future of tourism in our city of Dubai. It affectively boosted the tourist industry in the city, and the country of United Arab Emirates. As more holiday makers visit Dubai, more people learn about the wonderful place this really is, and as a whole improve the economy, not just in Dubai, not just in UAE but the whole of the Arabian Gulf.
