  • John Battelle’s 2012 Predictions: Among them: “Twitter will become a force as a media company, not just a platform for others’ media.

  • Management Team – While Building the Business: by Fred Wilson. “Building the business largely means building the management team. They are one and the same. Many founders are naturally talented at building product and building the user base. But building the company comes harder to them.”
  • Identity Politics in India: by Atanu Dey. “The identity that matters most during elections is our identity as responsible citizens. We care not about the identity or the personality of the candidate but rather what ideas and ideals the candidate holds and whether those ideas will lead to social welfare. We care about honesty and decency, about public order and private enterprise. It is that identity of ours that we should wear proudly on our chests and act accordingly at the ballot box.”
