Attending few events in the recent days, made me thoughtful As humans and especially us engineers, can have computers that can play GO – one day we may even reach full artificial intelligence, but we will not be able to solve check-in queues at events. Why is it? What happened to the wonderful technologies like QR codes, Bluetooth beacons and NFC – is it only for preaching to others by technology firms?.

Yesterday, Manish Maheshwari, CEO, Network18 Digital wrote an article with inputs from a friend of mine “Avinash Mudaliar”, titled “Why Facebook’s Latest Dual News Feed Pilot Is a Nightmare for Publishers”.

It was “Rethinking Marketing: The Entrepreneurial Imperative” by Dr. Minet Schindehutte.  As always, going through the security at the Consulate office and lack of parking near-by was a pain. If you are going for any event at US Consulate in Chennai including Saturday movies or to American Consulate Library, remember to carry a Government given ID Card (Driving License, Passport, PAN Card and so on) in original, be there 30 minutes before the event, going by Auto-rickshaw will be the most convenient.
