"It's never about the role, always about the goal" or as Covey puts it "Begin with the end in mind". Sometimes, we fail to do that and, consequently, waste time in endless and fruitless meetings. Have you observed the same thing? Is there a solution?

Infotech, organised by the National Computer Board, will take place in Rodrigues next week, one week after the Robotics Workshop by the Mauritius Research Council. I'm happy that Mauritians of Rodrigues are benefiting from the same kind of activities and events as Mauritians of Mauritius. Both NCB and MRC are parastals operating under the aegis of the Ministry of Technology, Communication and Innovation.

The real-time city is now a reality. The way we describe and understand cities is being radically transformed. Senseable City Laboratory is a research initiative at the MIT and has helped New York, Amsterdam, Nairobi, etc. become better cities. Time for Mauritius now?

I know. We are past the era of Microsoft bashing, especially since Satya Nadella took office. But, personally, I am always amazed by what a Linux distribution gives you compared to a Windows installation: an OS, tools, programming languages, browsers, etc: a whole house! Discuss.

Les grandes puissances du monde ont eu besoin de main-d’oeuvre étrangère pour faire fonctionner leur économie. À un certain moment, 40% des ingénieurs travaillant à Singapour étaient des étrangers. Devons-nous avoir beaucoup plus de professionels étrangers à Maurice?

Je suis d'accord avec Rabin Bhujun lorsqu'il écrit que Maurice jouera un rôle secondaire dans l'Intelligence Artificielle ou la Fintech sur le marché africain, sauf si nous parvenons à rapidement améliorer notre système d'enseignement et à combler nos vides juridiques. Qu'en pensez-vous?

It is not easy being smart with money because we are always tempted. But following simple rules can bring in a lot of benefits. I like the emphasis on having a conversation with your spouse before buying something expensive...

What if we solve the last mile issue (i.e. travelling from home to the light rail station then from the station to work and vice-versa) using something like the Easymile EZ10 driverless shuttle? It has an autonomy of 14 hours, is fully autonomous and is safe.
