    Imaginarium – Review

    Imaginarium advertises itself as ‘India’s first Live Arts show with Rob’. That’s very true. Except that the show was not only about arts, but it was about crafts, magic, humour, audio-video displays, and lots of interactivity. Better, they even gave us DIY art/craft kits with which audience learned to draw a superhero along with Rob, and completed a few other arts/crafts follow-along exercises. We went to the show on Dec. 1, 2018 (Sat Afternoon 12 P.M.) at Sir Mutha Venkatasubbarao Concert Hall, Harrington Road, Chetpet. Frankly we didn’t know what to expect. At the ticketing area where they exchanged the online passes for tickets, they gave us a DIY kit…

    Sanskruthi Dolls Exhibition @ TTK Road, Chennai

    Today we went to the Sanskruthi Dolls exhibition at Maharashtra Nivas, TTK Road (Near Hp Petrol bunk), Alwarpet, Chennai.

    Google Search Conference: My Learnings

    Today I went to the Google Search Conference held at Trident Hotel, Chennai. Here are a few of my learnings/highlights from the event – Google looks at more than 200 factors while ranking a webpage for a search query; page rank is just one of them. In 2017 alone Google did more than 2,70,000 experiments with Search and they implemented less than 2500 changes in their algorithms. Everyday, around 15% of the searches are for new keywords. Loading Speed and SSL (https) are important factors for better search result positioning. They suggest we use Structured Data Markup (Schema.org is fine, but Google’s Structured data is preferred) for giving additional information…

    My Experience at our First Exhibition

    After attending many exhibitions as a visitor, I had always wanted to participate in one as an exhibitor. That opportunity finally arrived yesterday with our participation in this one-day expo. Planning and preparation took a considerable amount of time. While Ramya had to make the fashion jewellery products, I had to learn and make videos for demonstration. I decided to debut a new service – 3D Photo Slideshows at this expo, hence the need for that learning. We had to design and order banners & visiting cards. We had to keep visitor diaries and bill books. We had to plan for extra table & chairs. Besides, we bought a photography…
