Engineering and Management News
A Daily Newspaper from Narayana Rao is providing the opportunity for public to create newspapers of their editing and design through the use of Twitter and Facebook. I created the newspaper - Engineering and Management News. I am quiet excited about this form of online presentation. I am now learning its features. Once I understand all its features, I shall be able to provide very good reading experience to my friends, alumni and students. It is a good way to presenting various blog articles and knol articles written by me so far.

Particles travelling at speed higher than light - Observation - 2011

The OPERA experiments observed that neutrinos are travelling at a speed higher than that of light in vacuum. The scientists were by humble to state the result in a very polite way and calling for further independent studies to confirm their observations.

The original paper and the first seminar video are in public domain for free access. It will be interesting to follow this scientific discovery process to understand how scientific research proceeds in such important issues.

Links to various articles and comments are available in an article on Knol.

Author Platform

Author platform is the foundation using which you are going to do mass marketing of your book for publication.

Earlier this platform was developed by publisher's publicity department. Now in the online age, authors themselves have to take up that task.

Author platform can be developed in multiple ways.

Famous in a profession, occupation or as artist.
Famous as a speaker
Existing business contacts and fame
Popular blog or website
Big email list of contacts developed through some online activity
Famous as a podcaster
Thousands of followers on Twitter, Facebook, Google+ - Social network followers
Existing successful published books
Successful book promotion experience through Web 2.0 options

How do you build the author platform? You have to build it brick by brick and in digital media click by click. Start participating in online activity as early as possible and build your author platform.

Today I have 150,000 page views to my online articles and blog posts.

When in 2005 I had made my first blog post, I started from scratch. The platform was built over a period of six years and my online page views are equivalent to a successful book today. I shall share my experience in some posts in the future.
