Just wanted to do a quick follow-up on the post last week. There are some mainstream media outfits covering the same issue. We have seen the story re-iterated in all parts of the world, be it the Silicon Valley or India or anywhere in-between.
As they say, being on the cover of Time or The Economist is a two edged sword; some even look upon it as a curse.
On the one hand, this demonstrates recognition of work done over a significant amount of time. But on the flip side, once that happens, you have clearly peaked out. History has shown, more often than not, mainstream media is not at the forefront of catching onto the big trends.
They invariably do so when the issue has been festering and catching on like wildfire on the ground for a while. There is always a lag between something taking root, bubbling up to the top and having a billboard in the Central Business District (CBD).
In this case, we at the SEA Fund, firmly believe that, there comes a time in the history of societies, nations and geographies that defines the entity for the foreseeable future.
This seems to be such a situation again. There is a clear froth building in the system, but like every time earlier, this time it’s different – and I say that with the tongue firmly in the cheek!
