Google Buzz – The New Buzz in Town

The Google Buzz is yet another innovative creation of Google in response to Twitter and Facebook. How is it better?

What is Professionalism and how to Judge it?

Professionalism, a term commonly used for managers and has difficult meanings in the dictionary (Don’t even want to go through them). I derived a completely new definition of professionalism based on my experience. Ok, I know, many of you may not agree but this is the best definition to me and helps to keep my selection criteria clear and focused to my organizational goals.
