The instant messaging service connects millions, but its record-breaking sale won’t generate new jobs
In the emerging economy, there’s no longer any correlation between the size of a customer base and the number of employees necessary to serve them… (WhatsApp’s 55 employees are all its 450 million customers need).

Why We Expect More from Technology and Less from Each Other
… it [is not] clear how the Russia proposal would be implemented, wrote Yochi Dreazen on Foreign Policy magazine’s “Cable” blog. Syria has “dozens” of chemical weapons sites and could shuttle chemical agents and precursor stocks among them in a way that US intelligence would find difficult to track. “That, in turn, would mean that Obama would have to effectively take Assad’s word that he’d turned over all of his weapons – an assurance the president would probably be unlikely to trust,” Mr. Dreazen wrote. Given their lethality, chemical weapons can be highly dangerous to handle – the more so in the midst of a deadly civil war. Who would undertake that job? How would they be destroyed? That is not an easy process: The US is still not finished with the destruction of its own old chemical weapons stocks, decades after they were withdrawn from service and marked for elimination.
