A thoughtful post…

Data, the center point of Digital Revolution has become an Oil-like commodity which India had got plenty on its own. But are we really equipped to handle the new Data-bloom in the digital space? With the raging Facebook Data Leak debate going on, it is high time we pay attention to the numerous social […]

SoCS: Wealth of Information

Information is wealth. This is a line we hear very often. How much of these information is converted to a useful knowledge? How much information can we retain to make a decision? How can we actually verify if an information that is deduced from the raw data available is actually the right one? Who validates them? I have had these questions for quite some time. So here I am, putting out these questions as part of today’s SoCS post 🙂


Post for this week’s Stream of Consciousness Saturday prompt.

Your Friday prompt for Stream of Consciousness Saturday is: “information.” Use it as your theme or use the word itself – it’s all up to you. Enjoy!

SoCS: On an average

  1.  As I had already mentioned, I am currently reading A Song Of Ice and Fire Series (aka Game of Thrones Series) by George R R Martin. Currently I am on my 2nd book ‘The Clash of Kings’ and have completed almost 60% of it (at least according to the Kindle app if I load the book separately) but I am seeing no end to it, because my friends gifted me a 5-in-1 e-book and that takes an awful lot of time to add that 1% in my Kindle 😦 and this is in-spite of me doing an average of 100 page a day.    Do you think, if I ask, my manager will allow me a sabbatical to complete this series ?
  2. I always wanted to be a little taller than I am now and my friend’s tell me that I am a little greedy there because I am quite well above the average height of women in India. I thought they were just bluffing but seems like I am, according to this data . I am little above 5 ft 5 in. But still I wish I was 5 ft 8 in. I will almost be that close to my brother’s height (I hate that he grew up to 6 ft when he was the tiniest one in the family till my under-graduation and I had thought I was invincible!)
  3. Do you believe in the The Law of Averages . Sadly, I do. I don’t think I should be gambling at all (not that I like it), unless I have to win a bet to lose money that is.
  4. Do you know that when we say the word average we always, almost always mean ‘arithmetic mean’. But even median and mode are forms of averages, a fact which statisticians and finance people tend to take advantage of sometimes (or rather most of the times).
  5. On an average, how many blogs/posts do you read per day ? I read an average of 25 posts on a weekday and that doubles up during the weekends if I am at home.
