A sustainable innovation ecosystem emerges from the passionate and persistent efforts of a lean and agile team evolving through a perseverant and progressive environment. It is how we sum up the experience in designing, building, operating an innovation lab in an evolving and enchanting city of Thiruvananthapuram. This video is a reflection and recollection of this journey from a humble beginning within a corporate innovation lab facility to a transformational open innovation ecosystem that could partner with global research hubs such as MIT, Stanford University, TU Delft, Russian Quantum Centre, CSIR etc. This Digital Innovation Lab could also become the epic centre of research scholars and thought leaders from across India from academic institutions such as KTU, VIT, CUSAT, BITS Pilani etc. We could create a transformational impact on the innovation ecosystem in Kerala through this digital technology hub as we pivoted ourselves to the lean startup culture and agile program management methods. Looking forward to your views and thoughts on this journey !
I had a chance of moderating the national seminar organised by Symbiosis Centre for Information Technologies ( SCIT ). The seminar was titled ‘Amalgamating IOT and Big Data’ – Boon or Bane for Data Analytics. It was an amazing experience to see the curiosity among the management graduate students on finer aspects of technology ethics, technical architecture, business models, social aspects etc. I could see that SCIT is actively inspiring their students to explore the consultative aspects of Digital Technology in depth. While interacting with the aspiring entrepreneurs of SCIT I could understand that this institution is carving out a new generation of managers who does not loose their passion for technology in their pursuit for business acumen.
This is definitely a recommended pedagogic model for management education in the coming days. I have shared my perspectives on the management education and the SCIT experience in the following video. Looking forward to your views and comments.

19th National Seminar from Symbiosis Centre for Information Technology – SCIT titled IoT and Big Data : Leverage or Adversary to Data Analytics was indeed a life time experience and a cherishing experience for me.

I had an interesting conversation with Channel I’am on the emerging digital economy of India. Digital economy in India is evolving into an ensemble of vivid modes of finance capital, social capital, industrial capital and other forms. It is quite unique to the Indian economy that the basic modes co-exist with advanced forms, as always in our history. Please listen to this conversation to know further about the possibilities in the Indian economic fabric.

I had a curious conversation with Channel I’M / Channeliam on #Bitcoin investment and trading strategies for 2018. Never knew it will be a precursor to such an interesting time for bitcoin signals and global market economy as a whole. Interesting times indeed! There are ongoing debates about considering Bitcoin as a currency, commodity, and trading instrument for futures.
Is bitcoin a conventional currency ? no, it is not. It is a digital currency produced by the intellectual labor of a decentralised and self organised collective. Is it a conventional commodity ? no, it is not. It is a digital asset build from a social network of conventional commodities.
At the moment, global market economy is ever more interested in the #bitcoin signals as the correlation between conventional stocks and bitcoin is getting very close. Following articles in global financial journals and magazines are loud testimonials to this pulse.
It is loud and clear. Bitcoin has become the most dynamic and most social and most evolutionary financial machinery human kind has ever created. It has created a trust machine so massive that we have started using supercomputers to mine and monetise it.
