Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • The Social Wars: by Seth Sternberg. “If history’s any guide, the social networks will compete for site distribution through traffic referral and cold, hard cash.”
  • What if the Secret to Success Is Failure? from New York Times Sunday Magazine. “Why our children’s success — and happiness — may depend less on perfect performance than on learning how to deal with failure.”
  • Big Tent called Shveta Chhatra: by Shashi Shekhar in Pioneer. “From Rama to Akbar to Shivaji, the Shveta Chhatra has been a non-theocratic symbol of the sovereign power of the State. The Shveta Chhatra envisioned a ‘Strong Republic’ but with a minimalist Government. From Kautilya to Gandhi and Ambedkar, we see glimpses of that tradition of political thought. It needs to be revived.”
  • EBDITA: A Fred Wilson tutorial. “EBITDA is the pre-tax cash earning power of the business.”
  • Blogging Reinvented: by Om Malik. A short piece, with lots to think over. “The next generation of blogging systems needs to account for the fact that information — and most importantly, conversations — flow via email, Twitter, instant messages and other formats.”
