TRG DC secretary works in Pakistan

Too much info, too little novelty. Here's one that forced me to say hello to the few who stop by here:

"In a chic downtown lobby across the street from the Old Executive Office Building, Saadia Musa answers phones, orders sandwiches and lets in the FedEx guy. And she does it all from Karachi, Pakistan. As receptionist for the Resource Group, Musa greets employees and visitors via a flat screen hanging on the lobby's wall. Although they are nine hours behind and nearly 7,500 miles away, her U.S.-based bosses rely on her to keep order during the traffic of calls and meetings."

Full marks for thinking cool, Zia ;-) Thanks SQ, for the tip-off.

A tipoff: There has been more noise in the tech circles about PK-India collaborations, mixed signals. You could follow that up, instead of leaving the story vague with 'last Feb'.

I've posted perhaps a few odd stories here, including one or two on TRG. What's with the 'surprise' factor, S? Tch Tch :-)

:-D

Actually i wrote that article in early feb, so I couldn't cover the latest developments concerning Pak-India collaborations then. Maybe, I'll do a follow up story on the current developments.

A follow up you must, given there is so much talk and so little investigation behind the one-time headlines. I hope we can read a real story, and not just "We shall conquer" statements from so-called 'leading' technocrats. Goodluck and you know where to post the first link, eh?
Hope you've read about the possibility of a fiber-link b/w amrit and lhr.
