Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • Frighteningly Ambitious Startup Ideas: by Paul Graham. “Any one of them could make you a billionaire. That might sound like an attractive prospect, and yet when I describe these ideas you may notice you find yourself shrinking away from them.”
  • Online Newspapers: from The Economist. “To survive online, newspapers are seeking a worldwide audience.”
  • The Newsonomics of ARPU, Counting Revenue per Visitor: by Ken Doctor. “It’s a great benchmarking metric, long used by telcos and in the cable TV industry, and one being increasingly used, though not publicly, in the digital news industry.”
  • Indian eCommerce: by Shyam Kamadolli. “Where we are today is that both investors and entrepreneurs have become more aware of the challenges than they were 6 months ago.”
  • India’s Exploding Digital Economy: by Jeffrey Rayport. “The idea that India — with its scale, its energy, its consumers — could become a digital laboratory and growth engine for the world struck me as both likely and inspiring.”
