Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • What China can teach Facebook: from WSJ. “Though Mark Zuckerberg is well aware of the mobile challenge, he might think about following in Tencent’s footsteps, and instead of working on a more streamlined Facebook app or some grander mobile operating system, make a new mobile product from scratch.”
  • The Darwinian Evolution of Startup Hubs: by Fred Wilson. “If you study Silicon Valley, what you see is something that looks like a forest where trees grow tall, produce seeds that drop and start new trees, and eventually the older trees mature and stop growing or worse, die of disease and rot, but the new trees grow up even taller and stronger.”
  • Killed at socialism’s altar: India Inc: from India Today (via MSN). “Recent policy actions in telecom, coal, power, gas and taxation have badly hit businesses. The economy is taking a beating as its engine of growth, the private sector, suffers. The worst is yet to come if status quo is maintained.”
  • China’s economy: A survey by The Economist. “China’s economy is not as precarious as it looks. But it still needs to change.”
  • Engagement isn’t Enough: from strategy+business. A book excerpt. “A lesson in attaining the full potential of employees.”
