Amitabh Bachchan’s Blog

With the attention that the Big B’s blog is getting on Big Adda, it may not be a bad idea to convert Big Adda into a pure blogging platform and get rid of all the social networking stuff. Blogging is a standalone feature, which can succeed by itself, whereas a social network can succeed only if it has a critical mass of linked up users, and I don’t see Big Adda achieving that in the face of Orkut and Facebook.

Secondly, with so many “stars” embracing blogging, it looks like blogs have completed the long journey from being a geek’s tool to a mainstream medium.

A perfect example of how the invisible hand of the economy works. Each agent works in his own self interest, leading to a greater good for mankind. The retail revolution in India may unknowingly help in fighting poverty in rural India.
