Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • How the Web Changed the Economics of News: by Paul Bradshaw
  • The Impending Demise of the University: by Don Tapscott. “The old-style lecture, with the professor standing at the podium in front of a large group of students, is still a fixture of university life on many campuses. It’s a model that is teacher-focused, one-way, one-size-fits-all and the student is isolated in the learning process. Yet the students, who have grown up in an interactive digital world, learn differently.”
  • The New New Economy: from Wired. “The next new economy, the one rising from the ashes of this latest meltdown, will favor the small.”
  • Dotcoms are back (in India): from Business World.
  • The Global Food Crisis: from National Geographic on “the end of plenty.”

  1. I read article ‘the end of plenty’ and it has some focus on India. It asks for second green revolution which is smarter one. seems difficult to achive and cost of living and food is increasing which might help to bring more uncultivated land to cultivation. All we think is that we need bio fuels but same time we need food for hungry millions .

  2. I would love to see the new-new-economy in place. That is the way it should have been from the beginning. Very late learning.

    Of course a part of it was seen as Outsourcing.

    Larger organizations tend fall prey for politics, grouping, uncontrollable … very difficult to change directions.
