    Politics


    US President George Bush delivered the annual State of the Union address yesterday. I suppose Iraqis and other people in the Middle-East can look forward to getting reliable news and information, sans hateful propaganda, from American TV stations like CNN, CBS, NBC etc. Do you want to drink to the State of the Union address?

    Politics and cricket


    I've always wondered about how US President George Bush and Australian captain Ricky Ponting look so alike each other, have you? World dominators, both! How about Russian President Vladimir Putin and former England captain Nasser Hussain? Both rivalries continue to the looks arena too!

    Techonology


    CNET interview with Nandan Nilekani on a whole gamut of off-shoring related issues. He makes a very good point when he says that when the developed economies talk of globalization, it does involve job losses when multi-national banks, insurance companies or airlines come in, some people in the local companies will probably lose their job. So globalization works both ways. The flip-side to the argument, in my opinion, is that in case of globalization happening in a developing nation, while jobs are lost, there are jobs created as well and importantly, those are locally created jobs. But in case of off-shoring, the jobs aren't created in say the USA, they're created in India, China, Phillipines or say, Kyrghyzstan.
