Surprisingly where there is so much talk about customized offerings and personal touch, for firms and startups we are not a human being but a data source and we are treated in a similar way.
What website we clicked, what we are sharing on FB and twitter and many more data collection points that companies vouch can help in offering us just the perfect solution.
If a firm gathers my date of birth and starts offering me stuff based on my zodiac sign…how long would that sustain?
If really #datacollection have reached its heights of perfection in terms of customized offerings… I would like to see a mother-kid or father-kid relation growing with just the virtual connect…
The crux of the matter is..do not treat us as a data source…we are human beings…!

Do you think #Blockchain could resolve an issue like that …could it make one copy of content[in words] and whether it is translated … only the first published text in a particular language stays as a master copy?
Recent trend on twitter with #CashgivingApp #CASHeApp forced me to dig deeper about it and there I landed on Google Play Store page of @CASHeApp. After browsing all the tweets under #CashgivingApp my first thought was – Karza is so easy these days [Availing loan is quite easy these days].
The Launch of the App happened on 31-March-2016 at ITC Hotel and guess who was invited – Arjun Kapoor , who’s upcoming film Ki and Ka Continue reading
