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".

A note of thanks and the theme for July and August

I have been corresponding with Prof. P. V. Viswanath on my Tamil writing system proposal as well. Many thanks to him for his thoughtful comments. This proposal wouldn't be the same without his inputs and responses.  Thanks once again to George Hart and Harold Schiffman for their comments.

I have office hours on Monday, July 2nd, between 7:30 am and 8:15 am PST. (I have office hours again on August 6th between 7:30 and 8:15 a.m PST. I am also scheduling office hours for the next two months - September 3 and October 1, same time.) The theme for July and August is "Innovation and Competitive Strategy". Watch out for posts on this theme.  Please feel free to call me during office hours if you have any comments or questions.

Please note that I enforce office hours time slots pretty strictly. This is because we only have 45 minutes of office hours time in total. It may be possible to reschedule our office hours slots in case you need additional time to talk.

Update: Added a picture of George L. Hart to the post - in appreciation.
