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".

Office hours, et cetera
Prof. Sankaran Manikutty was in Nigeria during the Winter quarter and has been travelling quite a bit for work. Hence the fewer posts last quarter. He has agreed to continue to blog with us for the next couple of quarters, and so he will continue to be with us. Another administrative message : the office hours for April concluded this week. The next office hours are on the first Monday of May. They will be between 7:30 and 8:15 am PST.
