Of Death, S.e.X and the Startup World!!
1) I recently lost a friend — 30 year old on the very night he became a Doctor. While my friends and I are still coming to terms with our loss, Eugenia Kudya created Luka an AI chatbot to immortalize her friend. Would you use tech to resurrect your family/friend?
2) Is it wrong if no one gets harmed?? Help Sam Radford find the answer to whether Harmfulness and Wrongfulness still exist as two distinct concepts as they did for generations before us.
3) I have always believed that an Individual is defined by her/his actions and thoughts. Not by their religion, colour, caste or sex. Nothing could exemplify this better than the two stories coming out of NYC this week. On one hand Vikram Chatwal was booked for trying to set two dogs on fire while on the other hand Mayor of New York declared Oct 19 as Waris Ahluwalia Day for exemplifying values of Freedom, Tolerance and Inclusivity. Need I say more?
4) Talking about Waris and his creativity, Hugh MacLeod in his book Ignore Everybody….. talks about the two types of jobs a creative person has.. the sexy one and the one that pays the bill. He calls it the Sex and Cash Theory.. How do you balance your Sex and Cash??
5) We all agree Content is King. but who are you creating it for?? The days of targeting media and products at people based on their age is over. Forget the Millenials and say hello The Perennials! Age a’int nothing but a number.
6) Love her or hate her but Kim Kardashian is deciding how you are spending your money.. No this is not a Click Bait. This Bloomberg article comes with data and graphs to back its claims.
7) My friend told me he wants to start a Startup that helps other Startups startup.. I told him to F*ck off and give a big fat finger to the Startup world!
9) If you don’t have big plans this weekend or are just staying indoors to beat the October heat.. enjoy this Lazy Sunday Playlist. Best enjoyed with some Mint Julep Margaritas
Have a fun week ahead. Remember, I still Love you!
