  • Excellent ..maybe, the slideshare community can help Mr. Radoff build on his key insights ..i work in the online game industry in India and would sure love to get in touch with Mr. Radoff. I can be reached on niravkaka@hotmail.com



    The idea is that the emerging geographies - which have a very young population - and with broadband being all pervasive, huge structural changes will happen (for example, we have seen china and now india should be following soon ..if not later), what is required and is of the essence : Sharing of Insights ..so that the build up happens fast and in the right direction - rather than getting only horizontal, limited traction.
