Web On-the-Go is the stimulus package that will change not only India but the entire world. In this book entitled Web On-The-Go: A Preview of the Way of Living in a Wireless Web World, author S.Balachandran identifies the real purpose of innovation.

Right now, people extensively use the web at home and at work; but not on-the-go. Web On-The-Go is the unsatisfied wants of the people all over the world.

This book presents innovative ideas with fictionalized examples based on the concept of Web On-The-Go. It not only provides ideas for future applications, but also inspires people to think beyond regular applications, like email, messaging and social networking. People, who have read this book, always come up with surprisingly new ideas for industries like, transportation, shipping, health care, safety, security, etc.

From a career in software development, Bala moves to publication, taking technologies to the people and society at large. Through this book, he emphasizes that innovation, not the economy, is in a state of recession and depression.

Web On-The-Go is a must-read for all policy makers, executives, innovating managers, engineers, and the general public. It does have the potential to be a great reference material in the future.

About the Author

Bala lives in Silicon Valley, (Palo Alto, California, United States). He has been consulting as a software development engineer and architect in most of the major corporate enterprises in Silicon Valley and other business enterprises across America. During his consultancy, Bala got opportunities to understand various business processes, challenges, problems and growth potential in many different industries, such as, shipping container, automobile insurance, etc.

Having worked in the computer industry for more than two decades, and having witnessed the technology growth over a period of time, Bala is now convinced that it's time to take these technologies to the people and society at large. That thought inspired Bala to publish a book, Web On-The-Go.

It took some time for Bala to switch gears from software development to actual publication of a book. Step by step, Bala built a team of experts. Special care has been taken to build a team with social and political knowledge, as well as expertise in their given fields. This global team includes Meg Hamill in Northern California for creative editing; Linda Jay Geldens in Kentfield, California for copyediting and proofreading; and Pippa Cornell in UK for illustrations. Special thanks to graphics team in All of these individuals helped Bala to make his first book publishing project a great success.

ForeWord Clarion Review

With wireless hotspots in cafes and bookstores, cell phones that browse the Web and eBooks that download bestsellers with the touch of a button at our disposal, we may think that we are living in a wireless world already. In Web on-the-Go, though, Bala Sankar argues that we could be doing so much more with wireless technology. Extrapolating into the near future based on current inventions and infrastructure, Sankar portrays a time in which wireless is fully integrated into everyone's lives for the good of all.

A resident of Palo Alto, California, author Sankar has a background in developing software for the major corporations of Silicon Valley, including Google. His book is the result of collaboration among industry experts and a creative team.

Sankar begins Web on-the-Go with an extensive introduction to the philosophical and historical basis of his ideas. He extols the virtue of innovation, or visionary creative thinking, blaming our current recession on a lack of innovation, rather than financial straits. While this point is highly debatable, Sankar is on firmer ground when he describes leaps forward in technology propelled by innovators such as da Vinci and Arthur Clarke, the conceptualizer of transistor radios.

The bulk of Web on-the-Go details scenarios in which a thoroughly wireless world could be useful. In one chapter, a family lost in the wilderness is found with the help of a wireless broadcast of their last known position. In another chapter, a business owner tracks containers of goods from China through embedded wireless transmitters that communicate their location. Each example stretches the possibilities of current technology to their plausible limits, arguing that improved wireless technology at all levels of society would benefit everyone.

Web on-the-Go is clearly written, and its simple style is accessible even to a non-technical audience. Some of the scenarios read like fictional scenes. The engaging presentation of the material may inspire some readers to the type of innovation that Sankar glorifies.

Unfortunately, the book tends to defeat itself. Its proposed scenarios are so similar to our current conditions that it is easy to gloss over them or to say, "So what?" The sketchy illustrations add nothing to the book, either. Finally, Web on-the-Go in its dead-tree format, as opposed to an eBook, blog posts, or a Webinar, does not take advantage of the technology praised so highly in the book, thus undermining the concept of wireless as a progressive panacea. This timely book would thrive better as a message delivered by digital or Web means.
