Parenting (Nov 2016 – Present): This is sure to be the mother of all learning projects. :)
The Notes by Ada Project (Mar 2017 – Present): A bi-weekly newsletter that shares narratives bringing together various pieces of technology news. Inspired by Lady Ada Lovelace, this newsletter hopes to emulate her ability to think about and, maybe, play a role in creating the future.
Thinking Product (Jul 2017 – Present): I love building products. I used to do this as part of side projects until I started doing this full time at LinkedIn. So, this near-weekly series is me writing about what makes great products and the process of building them.
Seed: Every book on happiness and fulfillment talks about the power of journaling. But, journaling regularly is daunting. We are on a mission to create a mobile app that will help you journal. Targeting launch in August 2017.
RohanRajiv.com – Reviews of all non-fiction books I read (I update this every 3-4 months)
AlearningaDay.tumblr.com – Short form blog that I use for book notes
The 200 Words Project (Jan 2014 – May 2017): I posted an idea (typically from a book I’ve read) within 200 words every Sunday on this blog. This was a continuation from a previous project called “Monday Learning” where I was a contributor – also a weekly newsletter since June 2009.
The MBA (Aug 2014 – Jun 2016): A collection posts about lessons learnt from graduate school.
The Help2Grow Initiative (Nov 2013 – Mar 2015): Help2Grow is a charitable trust registered in India that exists to support the underprivileged to sustainably work towards a better quality of life. I still support Help2Grow but it is a project that is a shadow of what it was.
The Learnographics Project (Jun 2014 – Jul 2014): Learnographics are infographics for learning. We hope to make one every quarter in 2014. This one is on hiatus as my designer friend is on a long break. :)
The Real Leaders Project (Sep 2011 – Jun 2014): We published an interview every 2 weeks with global leaders and innovators from across fields like entrepreneurship, writing, venture capital, and the arts. This was a lot of fun. Have a look what follows carding software from this day forward
The Mastermind Group (Aug 2013 – Jun 2014): No links here. This was a “mini-Davos” group started with friends. We did a Google Hangout every 2 weeks to discuss and implement ideas on various topics – e.g. finance and investing, relationships, better habits, etc. Didn’t work.
Skilldom.org (May 2013 – Dec 2013): A better way to pick up skills on the web. Didn’t work.
ExpressionHappens.com (Jan 2008 – Jun 2010): An initiative to help students express themselves. Didn’t work but we persisted for ~1 year anyway. We then pivoted to create “Sparkz” – the National University of Singapore’s version of Britain’s Got Talent. That still continues. :)
The Bookbytes Project (Blog): Intended to be a community of folk who share book learnings or book “bytes” as they read them. Didn’t work.
