Advertising is in the details

Yesterday, I listened to a particularly interesting episode from the podcast ‘Advertising is Dead’ called Brands, Audio and Modern Platform Ecosystems which featured Arjun Kolady, Head of Sales of Spotify. The episode apart from tracing Arjun’s journey also talked about the rise in consumption of audio as product that is offered and how audio content…

Uncertainty and Conspiracy theories

I came across an article recently on The Atlantic named ‘The Dark Reality of Betting Against QAnon ‘, and it was a reflection of how the QAnon instigated conspiracy theories are infiltrating a lot of realities. The recent attack on the Capitol is another blaring example of that. QAnon is an ideologically motivated movement that…

In this corner of the world | Post corona

This week I happened to see a movie called ‘In this corner of the world’ , a Studio Ghibli production and along with that I also read a book by Scott Galloway named ‘Post Corona’. Both these pieces revolved around a common theme of how the world had changed, where the former dealt with the…

Is this how I should view it ?

I haven’t written in a really long time.I had a few exams to give and still a few to go, but this process feels like it is coming to an end, literally and figuratively. At the beginning of this year,pre-pandemic, my life felt as if it was very methodically falling apart and there was nothing…

Are you sure you understood?

This week I came across a blog post by Nabeel Qureshi on How to understand things and I knew I had to write about it. I know I was supposed to write the second part of previous post(which I will do by the end of next week), that talks about future of humanity, but this…

Human/humanism 2.0 ?

This week I started reading ‘Homo Deus’ by Yuval Noah Harari and it’s mind boggling! Initially when I had just read the premise of the book, I thought this might just be another AI taking over the world narrative whilst predicting the future, but the nuances that the author adds to the argument set in…

Multidimensional models of thinking

This week I thought I could try something new. The past posts heavily revolved around what I had been reading in the following week and then it culminated into an attempt of how I resonated with those learnings. So this week I thought I would end up summarizing my learnings from a few of the…

broken capitalism ?

This week there were a couple of readings that I had to go through in order understand two of the most pressing questions of the current times (apart from when will we have the vaccine ) is, “What is the future of capitalism” and also “Could free market economy help us mitigate the climate change…

Where does data revolution lead us ?

We as a generation do not belong to ‘one job for life’ but we might also have to reconsider ‘one profession for life’. This interesting yet hard hitting revelation dawned upon me when I started working. It’s surprising how relevant we will feel with respect to our ideals and identities in college but how quickly…

Where does Liberty end?

This week I started with a new book named the “The Narrow Corridor: State, Societies and the fate of liberty” , which is written by Daron Acemoglu and James A. Robinson. The book elaborates on ideas of liberty and how different models of state and societies enable its growth or inhibit its growth. The book…
