The Margins is a group blog by Can Duruk and Ranjan Roy. It’s loosely about business of technology industry, and also technology of the business. We like the name, and the symmetry.
We are interested in how technology is changing the business of everything, with a slight focus on security and media. Coming from different backgrounds, finance and technology, and converging into one, business, we try to hit a nice balance of diversity and coherence.
Also, we don’t take ourselves too seriously.
