Mr. Ramchandra Guha's take on Indian Premier League

I realized that I had not watched even a single match from this edition of IPL from start to finish! 
Today I needed the newspaper to remind me that it's the Finals..and I remembered reading this piece from Hindu Opinion page a few days back..Hindu Article by Mr. Guha
I thought mine was a special case of 'IPL interest-waning Syndrome' :-). At this rate I'm sure that the 'It's not Cricket' voices will get louder. Hope better sense prevails and cricket (and only cricket) wins

Linkedin V/s Facebook - Interesting battle to track...

Umm.. this is getting really interesting indeed.  Linked in does have the head-start on the hiring front but the popularity of Facebook and the need by specialist recruiters to reach out to passive talent pool may both help facebook in it's current form. The pace at which this shift will happen IMHO will be higher in the emerging economies (yep the BRICS will lead the way ofcourse) due to the sheer size of the market involved and also due the way folks here treat 'privacy'.
Here's one link to support this view  http://mashable.com/2011/10/09/recruiters-prefer-facebook/
