I find it endlessly fascinating that — thanks to technology — I will be discussing the role of India in the Global Economy on New Delhi TV [2] today, live from the Nasdaq.

While everyone (including us) is rightfully focused on China and their 2 BIllion soon-to-be-middle class consumers, its easy to forget that India has over 1 Billion people, and, a much greater developed technological infrastructure.

The interview will be with Kismet Singh of NDTV.


UPDATE: February 11, 2005 2:05pm

I took some snaps with the camera phone, which you can see below.

After the interview, I bumped into (i.e., stalked) Leslie LaRoche. I’ve only spoken to her on the phone before, and never met her in person. She looked fetchingly Elfin in her green suede jacket. You may think you know what a person looks like because you see them on Television, but trust me, you don’t. Leslie  is this gorgeous little thing — I said elfin before, and its exactly the right word — she is simply radiant in person.


The interview was at the Nasdaq market site, which is pretty cool collection of screens:

Here’s the view from my friend Ralph’s office — the ground floor is where the studios are:
