What awesome two days.
Happy (and thankful to Rice Communications and FOMA) to be a part of an event like Festival of Media, Asia. Stylish, full of great speaking sessions and good speakers- not just on the quality of speaking but the quality of content they had to talk about.
Apart from that, great questioning by presenters.
Two days- locked in the southern corner of Singapore- hijacking the W Sentosa hotels (they loved it, by the way- judging by their tweets in response to mine ) .
Full of action too: We made the …

Attending The Festival of Media Asia 2013 in Singapore.
The Festival of Media Asia 2013 takes place from 3-5 March 2013.
I personally am quite stoked about the two days: 4th and 5th March. There seems to be a solid line-up of speakers and sessions.
Check out the speaker line up for yourself.

Earlier, I usually attended these events from a Media Agency (when I used to work with Media agencies) or from a Brand perspective, later (When I was working with Nokia). And now I am attending this having …
Start-up incubators and accelerators are a growing trend all over the world.
The scene seems to be hotting up in India too.
Friends from ‘Price Check India‘ shared this wonderful infographic and a rich post highlighting the top incubators/business accelerators from various parts in India.
A note from them:
…there’s a great thrust to support first time entrepreneurs across India. There are all kinds of efforts in this direction – Govt supported Institute based technology incubators, Private business incubators started by industry veterans and startup accelerators supported by companies and VC funds. Individually there …

We recently engaged with the media (and blogging community) via an extremely innovative manner. We probably did pique the interest of some awesome media folks with that approach. More on the approach in another post- though just wanted to let everyone know that The Whiz Times has been covered on various digital media platforms:
Prominent Industry leading Digital media/marketing publications:
And on a few blogs:
These are a few that we monitored, and hopefully, there will be a few more this week.

So Techventure 2012 started today.
I HAD to be there.
But I did not know anyone who could help me get in. Would have loved to buy tickets, but (A) those were too expensive for me at this stage of my start-up and (B) there was a better way.
Chasing The Storm.
Over the years, this canvas has taken the brunt of my opinions. Plus the influence built through years of publishing works out. Helps me meet super cool people. And get invites to fab events like these.
My key agenda for attending Tech …

V Ramani- the charismatic media personality from India is no more.
I found about this from Alok Kejriwal’s post on Facebook and his tribute- and then found out more through various news articles. Absolute shock. He was a little young to go.
Ramani was probably by far the most imposing personality I have met in my career. Tall, bald, with a deep voice and a completely no nonsense attitude.
He was an absolutely polarising personality – but the thing is- you could love him or hate him, but you could never ignore or …

A few weeks ago I was conducting some research on e-commerce led businesses.
Though I have worked on various e-commerce business in my 13 year journey with the Digital media and marketing industry- and have been exposed to various kinds of businesses, at the time of my research- I was particularly interested in Payment gateways and logistics industries.
My presumption was that from an Asian context- both these businesses would have matured and now- would be offering many digital enabling offerings- ranging from complex to smaller services. All that had to be …
I classify an underground trend here. There is something unique about today’s generation. They want access to everything. The fact that something is not within reach is just not acceptable to this group…
