Best of 2008: Mobile VAS and Data
It is the last week of 2008, and time for some re-runs. I re-started this as a daily blog in August, so there’s only five months of material to choose from – and it may seem quite recent. Here goes — a selection of what I think were some of the better blog posts that I wrote. I have categorised the blog posts into six themes: Mobile Value-Added Services and Data, Entrepreneurship, the Mumbai Terror Attacks, Reinventing Indian Politics, my Presentations, and a few Personal commentaries. Happy Holidays. I’ll be back with new posts starting Monday, January 5.
