Intel invests in Jajah

I just got news that Intel is lead investor in Jajah's C series investment round and that must certainly be quite a support for Jajah's team. The space of telephony services is pretty crowded but I still feel Jajah is one of the future winners. I have been a long time user of Jajah and I think the service they offer is just great. I hope this new massive support helps them bring us even better features and make even more powerful contributions to the inevitable convergence between mobile telephony and the Internet.

Perhaps an interesting perspective to consider in the way we run business and countries.

How good are we at pursuing happiness?

A fascinating presentation at TED Talks about our ability to "synthesize" happiness. Of course, as is often the case with results from scientific research, this can be seen in a positive light (that we can synthesize happiness better than we can pursue it) or in a way that would essentially anihilate the drive for progress (why pursue happiness if it can be synthesized?).

Quote of the day

"Every now and then go away, have a little
relaxation, for when you come back to your work your judgment will be
. Go some distance away because then the work appears smaller and
more of it can be taken in at a glance and a lack of harmony and
proportion is more readily seen.
Leonardo da Vinci (1452 - 1519)
