Life is meaningful, only when one wishes to make it. We are creatures of time and we’ll wither away in it. The little moments of joy we find and create are all that will live with us.

I call it – Moore’s Evolution!

Very insightful for Techies




Very Interesting Debate – PRIVACY In the New Age!

What If: Privacy Becomes a Luxury Good?

Privacy and DATA are inexorably connected in a loop of ‘need vs want’.

This means a new economic debate fundamentally.
I think that is starting next after 5 years. Interesting Age to live in!!!

Future of Big Business

DAVOS is teeming with analysis right now.

What the BIG ones think – take a dip in their thought-ponds fellas:



A significant milestone made at SPIEF (St. Petersburg International Economic Forum)

One must look very closely at what just happened in St. Petersburg.

Russia, Kazakistan and Italy !!!

That is not a small thing.
To me it seems that the new age of innovative economies has just been ushered in.

When did you ever hear policy makers talking about technology and the need for information relevance and transformative urgency.

I for sure will be looking closely at this silent – yet massive change.


The 10 Check – I call it :)

I incidentally and very briefly meet Elon on a beach in Zanzibar, Tanzania at new year’s eve 2012 at a time when just a few people knew who he was!

The 10 points he makes now, really hit hard on the real deal in entrepreneurial life. The only other thing for Pakistan I’ll add is ‘manage perceptions’ for TRUST.

There is so much of mistrust in Pakistan that real signals and real deals get lost in the noise of people’s doubts and fictional concerns.

VALUE is my brand and it’s a product of validated authenticity not just the outer shine and glitter of a Mercedes Benz. The way Elon created VALUE. It really takes one to beak their knuckles doing that.

Enjoy a real innovators insight on what is real and what is not.

China, USA and the World – Bill and Elon Talk

As a take away from this talk, I feel we should all make a major distinction between ‘Entrepreneurs’ and ‘Innovators’.

Most all of the role models for exceptional entrepreneurship today are basically ‘innovators/ inventors’.
They are never looking at the business (as per say) but simply at their passion to make a difference in their own way, with their skills and potential.

Also note when Bill talk about the major shift in the time when he made it big and now!

One Dollar = One Euro

How will you like the world where one dollar = one euro ?

There are signs that is coming soon – very soon.

As Euro has lost its peg against the Swiss Frank, it may just be that the two dominant global currencies Euro and Dollar will find parity and then perhaps move to peg as well!

That will certainly have far reaching effects on the economic outlook for the next coming decades.
