| Stuff I've Been Working On|
Here's a list of some of the projects I have
been working on:
- Anonymous Payment System for Web -- Walmart doesn't ask your name when you check out, why should e-commerce sites?
Anytime you try to buy something on the web, first thing you have to do is create an account, create a password, and confirm the password, by which time you perhaps have decided not to buy the item! I think that being able to anonymously buy stuff (especially content) is the next frontier in e-commerce.
The solution is a two pronged approach; first allow the sale
of an item even when the surfer has no account with you. This is exactly how mail order (by phone) companies operate. The account is created without a burden on the customer.
Second, seperate the payment collection logistics from
order fulfilment logistics.
See the prototype of the
Kamat Pay-per-view System at Amazon.
- My Own Private Bangalore -- A new section at Kamat's Potpourri on the City of Bangalore.

creating your own start page beats all portals, back-flipping,
personalized corporate pages, and book-marking tools.
