  • Making Jest

    In the absurdities of the last few days over the Long March in Pakistan and what can only be called the resulting chaos, while news channels and dime-a-dozen analysts revel in the cha-ching of advertising money as the nation tunes in to watch the political primetime drama, most of Pakistan seems to have lost sight…


  • Liking Your Likes

    Back in 2010, when Facebook first introduced a ‘Like’ button, it forever changed the meaning of the word. Or at least, for its 850 million or so active users. Now, everyone wants to “go digital” but it seems no one quite knows how or why.

  • Digging for Digital Gold

    Edward Wilson, in his book Consilience: the Unity of Knowledge, wrote “We are drowning in information, while starving for wisdom.” Despite the tons of information available to us almost instantaneously over the internet, it still takes the same amount of time to make sense of anything as ever. Humans have been manually extracting meaning from…
