On Zeros

Atanu Dey is proud of our millenia old contribution to mathematics

On Nostalgia

Sagnik has a brilliant post on forgetting and remembering old friends.

Or the time when a guy and a girl stood in a Chennai railway station and did the whole “You won’t forget me, na” routine? That girl and guy don’t speak no more. I’ve probably bumped into many of those navy blue clads on the roads of Kolkata and not even recognized them. The people from Pilani have an e-group where we wish each other on our birthdays. But the number of e-mails is fast decreasing.

Knowledge Workers on their own

Stephen Baker surmises that knowledge workers will be free agents soon !

For starters, we blog. That way we build our individual brands, our knowledge, and our network of connections. These are going to be ever more vital assets in the years ahead. If we do a good enough job building them, companies may decide to bid for our services fulltime, even throwing in insurance and a 401K. But just like the companies, we too will have loads of information about our own value and prospects. In the ecosystem that’s unfolding, one teeming with knowledge entrepreneurs, I’m betting that most of us, by choice or circumstance, are going to be running our own show.
