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".

Pizza and Panini

The third installment of our column is coming up at the Times of India. And to give you an update on the TEDx talk - my preparations for the TEDx talk are coming along well. Tomorrow, I am scheduled to talk to Nori Gerardo Lietz, an expert on world real estate markets here at Stanford. So exciting!

I expect to have an interesting talk with her and I imagine she would have some very interesting things to say on the topic, which <drumroll> is "Why there are cows on the street in India?" Anyway, the latest installment of our column is almost there. Hope you enjoy this month's puzzle.
