Tech news Blog GigaOm Announces a Shutdown

Just walked out of Gigaom for the last time. Thank you everyone. I will miss you all for rest of my life! — Om Malik (@om) March 10, 2015 A few minutes I saw this tweet.

In his post on his personal blog : Business, much like life, is not a movie and not everyone gets to have a story book ending.  There will be time for postmortems, but not today. Today, I want to thank all the people who make (and have helped make) Gigaom. Their role in this journey was what really made it all worth it. They are great people and they will all do great work wherever they go. I want to thank our investors who believed in the business long before it became fashionable. And most importantly, I want to thank you dear readers for coming along on this trip of a lifetime.    See the post on GigaOM

LinkedIn Personal Branding Strategy Checklist

Human beings are so individualistic that no two human beings have the same behavior and attributes.The best personal brand that we project today is with family, friends, co-workers or community we live in. In the hyper-connected age that we live in the internet and the real time nature of information flow makes it very imperative for us to make sure that there is alignment in the perception and reality of our brand .
