ABC/D 13.01.14: Once an entrepreneur, always an entrepreneur!

People who love studying, always study; even after topping the class.

Introduction! To AB’s Content of the Day!

I read a lot. A lot.
And all of it online. Most of it about digital media and technology.

Usually, I would just share this with my colleagues, or people I meet, the next day. At a point of time, various individuals began asking me to share with them interesting content that I come across on the internet, on a regular basis.

In my attempt to do so, began ‘ABC/D’ – AB’s Content of the Day, an initiative to share one interesting piece of content, one read/view that will enrich your day.
