From rejecting a seven-figure job to building India鈥檚 largest platform for financial education,

Here鈥檚 the story behind my entrepreneurial journey so far.
I graduated from IIM Indore in 2008 and got placed in JP Morgan. Having a zeal to do something in the #education sector, I didn't take that #job, to start up a new venture of my own.
During that time CAT went online. I started my own venture- FireUp, an e-learning portal for training for #management entrance examinations.

Luego de algunas semanas de research en ALIBABA $BABA y dada la compleja comparaci贸n con otras empresas, decid铆 plasmar takeaways sobre el modelo de negocio de este gigante (vs similares de USA) del ecommerce $AMZN + fintech $PYPL + cloud service AWS + streaming $NFLX $SPOT.
Todos conocemos $BABA pero hay cierto halo de misterio/confusi贸n sobre el #Businessmodel, su transformaci贸n, como lograron ser el "market-leading innovator" y la convivencia entre fundamentals y el PESIMO contexto del PCC de #china. Su ecosistema combina muchas empresas.
Fundada en 1997, a帽o en que $AMZN hizo su IPO y un a帽o antes de $EBAY's IPO, actualmente tiene un market cap de USD536B. Comenz贸 monetizando la publicidad en su bolet铆n online de negocios y comercio, un modelo mas bien parecido al de $GOOG y $FB con altos m谩rgenes operativos

The #agile way of working is not new since it has been implemented by global #media and #online companies such as @netflix #netflix and @amazon #amazon
鈥淲hat we are doing now is to #scale. Not everyone will go fully #agile, since departments like #Finance will still operate largely in its traditional way. But those that will be affected will be in the #frontend side of the company such as the #marketing and #technology teams.

"Greta Thunberg... WHO is grateful for your generosity in donating 鈧100000 to @thewhof in support of #COVAX..."

Perplexed. What #WHO #Foundation?

Dec 8, 2020: "health expert Anil Soni has been appointed as the 1st CEO of the newly launched The WHO Foundation..."
The #WHO #Foundation - is not part of the WHO. It operates "alongside" the WHO.

Soni joined the Foundation (Jan 1, 2021) from #Viatris, a global #pharmaceutical corporation.

鈥淒emystifying Flexibility, Exposing the Algorithmic Boss: A Note on the First Italian Case Classifying a (Food-Delivery) #Platform Worker as an Employee鈥. New short WP on the misclassification case of a Glovo rider. Link:鈥 鈥 forthcoming in the @CLLPJ
In Nov 2020, the Palermo Tribunal reinstated a #rider and reclassified him as a full-time, permanent employee, to be remunerated according to the applicable collective bargaining agreement (for the service sector), on the grounds that his autonomy was merely notional
The platform could indeed organize the execution of work and discipline noncompliance with instructions issued through the internal system. The judge ordered compensation for wage differentials and reimbursement for the unpaid time the worker spent waiting for orders.

Here are my top notes from the book
Platform Scale by @sanguit.
Still my platform strategy bible!
#networkeffect #platform #marketplace #growth #startup #scaleup #innovation #businessmodel
The fastest scaling business models
allow external producers and consumers to
plug in and create and exchange value
with each other directly.
Value lies NOT in owning resources
but in managing the exchange of services
in an ecosystem.
The value is not created by the platform itself,
but by the interactions on top of the platform.
The platform business model
is to capture a part of the value
that is created in the meetings between users.

What is the connection between State-sponsored disinformation and online harassment? Well, closer than you'd think. See how this works and get 3 suggestions for how to fix it in my latest article in the Colorado Journal of Law and Technology.
Many works discuss online harassment harms; few discuss harassment's influence on elections/democracy. Online harassment has created serious policy, technical, and structural vulnerabilities that are exploited by malign actors & go largely unnoticed鈥攐r unprioritized鈥攂y companies.
Online harassment became mainstream with Gamergate. The problem is still plaguing social media, with progress being made in fits and starts after publicized incidents of bullying or silencing of minority voices. However, the problem has grown past these applications to new harms.

Even though I haven't been a big fan of Twitter threads so far, a lot of people I know have made 100-tweet threads for @threadapalooza so I thought I'll give it a try as well. I will start with #APIs and hopefully end up connecting them with the #FutureOfWork. Let's go ...

First of all, when I talk about #APIs, I mean HTTP-based interfaces connecting apps and backend servers as well as different services with each other. For now, the technical details, such as whether they use REST, GraphQL, gRPC etc., shall not matter. (1/100)
When humans interact with computers they require a user interface (UI), and when machines interact with each other they need application programming interfaces (APIs). At the end of the day, however, these have to be implemented by humans. Good #APIDesign considers both. (2/100)

1/n Short summary for the English world:
@BoschGlobal Research runs a project "Economy of Things" focusing on digital (decentralized) #marketplaces based on their experiences in
2鈨#MPC multi-party computing
3鈨ecentralized identity management (#SSI)
4鈨igital marketplaces
2/n The principles for #platform's they have researched are very well suited for #GaiaX. That's the reason why they have been engaged in and support it heavily.
Their vision of a fair and neutral digital marketplace is based on criteria such as
- openness
- neutrality
- transparency
- souvereignty
- integrity
- coopetion
(which fully coincide with #GaiaX's vision of their #European #dataspace & #servicespace.

#TWEETSTORM: The #Covid19 pandemic seems to have strengthened the #platform economy further. Multiple issues here:
The obvious include: remote work, food delivery, ecommerce.
The less obvious include: value chain shifts (e.g. movies), public-private partnerships, cartels etc.
Let's start with some of the obvious:
1. Remote work tools
Microsoft Teams hit an all-time high of 75M DAUs in April 2019.
Zoom video calls hit a high of 300M DAU in April.
April 2020 stats: 3x YoY growth in enterprise users and 169% growth in revenue.
Also, less obvious but equally important:
# of PDF documents shared using Adobe鈥檚 software grew 50% YoY for Q1.
Adobe Sign grew 175% since the start of Adobe's fiscal year.
Docusign is up as well.
Growth in e-sign + payments augurs well for supplier network digitization

"If you don't drop IE11 you are perpetuating the madness!", "Kill IE11 support!" Having wasted months of my life making WC and Proxy's work on IE11 along with some crazy nasty bugs, I couldn't agree more! However a thread on why is not that simple, especially on enterprise: 馃憞
I work on the UI Platform cloud at Salesforce: We provide the UI foundation for many of our clouds and customers. I'm going to focus on our B2B Sales/Service platform since its the one where IE11 is still officially supported. 1/14
This is "Salesforce Classic" our ~20 year old UI that brought Salesforce to the big enterprise company that we are today. As you can see the UI looks a bit outdated and its "deprecated", still being used by many of our customer. This still works on IE6 :) 2/14
