“Herding Cats” is an experiment by IKEA UK where they released 100 cats inside their Wembley store at night.
Yep. Take 100 territorial monsters and put them together in one room. Not really sure what the point of this whole experiment was. If they just wanted the cute shots at the end, they could’ve accomplished that with a few cats and some patience. 😐

Little gem of a video from Amazon founder and CEO Jeff Bezos.
He gives a name to an analogy that I have used often with great success. The deal is: When faced with any important decision that has potentially high risks/rewards, ask yourself “When I am old and crinkly, what will I regret more: DOING this action or NOT DOING it?”
Hat tip to Zaid for the link.

Australian broadcaster Foxtel, which is the official broadcaster in the country for the Commonwealth Games, has released an interesting promotion on Facebook called ‘Delhi Yourself’. 

Once you submit your profile picture to them, they will email you a hand-made illustration of the same within two days with a Delhi (read Indian) theme. The promotion seems to be picking up well with the special ‘Follow the Games’ page generating approx 5.5k ‘likes’ so far.

Here is what you gotta do to get yours:

1. Set your profile picture to the one you want illustrated. (Important because the mechanism doesn’t allow you to choose a picture)

2. Like the Foxtel Facebook page at http://www.facebook.com/#!/FollowTheGames?ref=ts

3. Click on the ‘Delhi Yourself’ tab in the page to work the magic.

My picture is attached below. I kinda like it, though I don’t know why they had to raise my hairline further upwards. Those damned Aussies! 🙂

Know of any Indian companies who are getting on the CWG bandwagon in the online space? Let me know.
