It’s been a while since I posted anything here. And as one would expect, Alexa tells me that more than 20 million websites have managed to do better than me over the past five odd months. Anyway, blog statistics notwithstanding, it is time for me to get back more seriously to putting up something useful more regularly here.
For those of you who may be interested—wonder if there’s anyone who falls in that category but nonetheless—I shifted cities and jobs in January earlier this year. The few months after that have been consumed in just getting used to a new place, gaining momentum at a new firm, and a whirlwind tour of the US in the midst of some highly critical assignments. Looking back, I cannot think of a single day not well spent. But then, there’s always room for improvement and so it’s time for me to squeeze out a few hours every week and get you something that is worth a read, to say the least.
Having said that, I realize my human limitations, owing to which I have decided to leverage technology for part of the job. Going with a philosophy that I choose to very unimaginatively call “Cut the Clutter”, I will publish a weekly roundup of top stories around the web on specific topics. Before you thumb your nose at me, let me add that the process to select these stories is a mix of using various automated metrics around popularity and social engagement, followed by a level of manual filtering to get you stuff that does not add to your already cluttered inboxes and RSS readers.
To begin with, I am launching the “Ideas to Execution Weekly”, which will carry exactly 10 articles handpicked every week (Duh!) and will span a range of articles around entrepreneurship and innovation. Needless to say, I look forward to your feedback on the selections so I can fine-tune the process.
