Section 66A, Gaza Ceasefire and Entrepreneurshit

The Hindu reported that a PIL (Public Interest Litigation) has been filed that Section 66A was against the freedom of speech guaranteed under the Constitution.

I hope this PIL gets more publicity, more people learn about it and something good comes out of it because the way the law is drafted right now just gives too much room for interpretation.

Next, The Economist on the ceasefire in Gaza.

I liked this post about how much hard work it takes to create and build wealth, and some parts of the post really resonated well with me. When you work seven days a week, the real worry you have is whether you are investing your time in the right thing or not because that’s one commodity that’s never going to come back.

Nassim Nicholas Taleb has a good essay on learning to love volatility.

Mark Suster wrote a very inspiring post titled Entrepreneurshit that resonated with a lot of people and even if you’re not interested in entrepreneurship, this great post is worth your time.

The Economist again, this time on Watson, the computer that beat the hell out of the best humans that played Jeopardy.

Finally, three essential photography tips from National Geographic.

Enjoy your weekend!

What is equally worrying is that the popular media didn’t raise the question of validity of Section 66A. Obviously, it needs to be removed – the language is nonsensical. There is probably no one in Lok Sabha who understands how IT laws should be framed. And, what is ironic is that the name of the person who filed the PIL is A Marx. :)

The Taleb article is an advert for his new book which I have pre-ordered. But, it looks like he is now over-selling the same ideas. Indian edition is Rs 350 on Indiaplaza, so worth a gamble.
