Weekend Reading

This week’s links:

  • Rise of the Enterprise “Toys”: by Aaron Levie. “Who would have thought that something as simple as status messages shared between colleagues would evolve to become such an important strategic product for Microsoft and the enterprise?”
  • Mobile is where the growth is: by Fred Wilson. “There is a significant shift going on this year, much more significant than we saw last year, from web to mobile. It is most noticeable in games, social networking, music, and news, but it is happening across the board and it presents both great opportunity and great challenges.”
  • Science’s great leap forward: The Economist on the discovery of the Higgs boson particle. “Without the Higgs there would be no mass. And without mass, there would be no stars, no planets and no atoms. And certainly no human beings. Indeed, there would be no history.”
  • It takes a city: by Edward Glaeser. “The future of India lies in its cities, not in its villages, and that fact creates both enormous opportunities and significant challenges.”
  • India’s dire states: by Pratap Bhanu Mehta. “Despite some manifest successes, most states have been unable to tackle certain fundamental challenges holding India back.”
