Note to recruiters

Note to recruiters: We are quite aware that recruiters, interviewers, VCs and other professionals generally perform a Google Search before they interview someone, take a pitch from someone, et cetera. Please keep in mind that not everything put on the Internet must align directly to one's future career and/or one's future product portfolio. Sometimes, people do put things on the Internet just because. Just because. It may be out of their personal interests, which may have nothing to do with their professional interests. Or it may be for some other reason. Recruiters seem to have this wrong-headed notion that if somebody is not signalling their interests in a certain area online, then that means that they are not interested in that area at all. It is worth pointing out that economics pretty much underlies the areas of marketing, strategy, operations and finance. And this blog is about economics. With metta, let us. by all means, be reflective about this whole business of business. Also, see our post on "The Multi-faceted Identity Problem".

The £100,000 question

Almost three weeks gone on the Chandrayaan Engine Room puzzle (Puzzle 2), and we are getting to ready to close it down. We are planning to keep it live for another couple of days. For those sticking on till the end, here is a hint : think about lighting one of the wires on both ends.

In the meantime, here is a clip from the show "Golden Balls." "Golden Balls" runs a version of Prisoner's Dilemma as part of the show. In this show, they had a hundred thousand pounds on offer. Enjoy!
