Weekend Musings


 

The last few days has been quite eventful. We had the first meeting of the ValuePickr Kolkata group last Sunday.

I had expected about 10 people when I first thought of this first. We ended up having over 40 participants sign up and 28 showing up on a rain-drenched Sunday morning and stayed on for over 3.5 hrs!! 


 


Some interesting stuff I read:

Peter Thiel, the billionaire VC, who founded PayPal and now Palantir and also was an early investor in Facebook, has written a book Zero to One where he talks about the attributes of a monopoly. This article summarizes the book and throws in some interesting observations on monopolies.
