The goal of TransportGooru.com is to be “the best place” on internet for all transportation industry-related news and information. It’s humble beginnings trace back to a behemoth “information management” challenge. Most of us, active practitioners in the transportation industry, consider the e-mails and e-newsletters that filter into our Inbox as the primary source(s) of industry information. The quantum of information jumps significantly from RSS feeds, Tweets, etc if you are also plugged into various forums, websites, and groups that address a multitide of transportation issues such as engineering, research, planning, public policy, governance, etc.
At times it can be overwhelming to find the relevant information amidst all that information clutter, which keeps growing by the minute. A few days away from office on vacation or business travel means you probably have an overflowing inbox/feed reader upon returning to work. In such cases, we never get around to reading most of such useful information. Many of those newsletters and article feeds remain unread for months and later resulting in a mass deletion when we run out of room and patience to deal with backed-up data.
TransportGooru.com attempts to integrate this ever growing volume of transportation industry information and organize the contents under one roof, catering to the information needs of everyone in the Transportation sector. As we all know, the value of up-to-date information is key in making vital decisions that can affect the progress of your project/program/business and even the growth of a country.
So, to help in this mission to serve the transportation community, you are encouraged to share any industry related information (especially events, jobs, etc) with the rest of our community through this portal. With your help, Transportgooru.com can become the information gateway for the entire transportation community with “zero” cost to all users.
Any comments/feedback about the contents and the “packaging” of information would be greatly appreciated. Looking forward to serving the community more actively in the days to come.
Legalese: MOST OF THE BLOG ENTRIES ON THIS SITE ARE A MERE AGGREGATION OF INTERNET AND E-MAIL-BASED NEWS AND INFORMATION THAT TRICKLES IN EVERYDAY. IN SIMPLE, IT IS DIGITAL CURATION OF CONTENT DEEMED USEFUL FOR THE TRANSPORTATION COMMUNITY BY THE AUTHOR OF THIS BLOG. THIS BLOG DOES NOT REPRESENT THE OFFICIAL POSITION OR POINT OF VIEW OF THE BLOG OWNER (that would be me), OR ANYONE ELSE IN HIS FRIENDS, FAMILY OR PROFESSIONAL NETWORK, UNLESS OTHERWISE SPECIFICALLY NOTED.
