Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • Reliance’s entry into the Broadband Wireless business in India: A quote from me in an India Knowledge@Wharton article. “We can certainly expect RIL’s entry to create a significant disruption in the Indian telecom industry. It is going to be very unsettling for the incumbents and very good for consumers. Reliance is known for innovations and very attractive price points. It will certainly introduce a significant dimension of competition in the marketplace.”
  • The Software behind Facebook: from Pingdom. “The challenge for Facebook’s engineers has been to keep the site up and running smoothly in spite of handling close to half a billion active users.”
  • Rewarding Failure: by Seth Levine. “Does your organization embrace failure or only reward success?”
  • Conservatism and the Spirit of Reform: by Peter Berkowitz in the Wall Street Journal.  “Republicans squandered their hard-won reputation as the party of ideas. It’s time to reclaim it.” Replace Republicans with BJP and it applies to the Indian context also.
  • The Price of Honesty: by Pritish Nandy. “Crime, sleaze, insurgency, poverty, violence, they all start from one source: Corruption. But the Big C is the only thing no one wants to discuss any more.”
