Bangalore Bloggers Meet with RK Mishra and Ashwin Mahesh (cancelled)

[This is the new thing I am doing] An important update on this. The meeting is cancelled because there were only 8 confirmed bloggers for the meet, and the ABIDE team wasn’t interested in meeting such a small group. I don’t blame them, after all Mr. Mishra and Mahesh are really busy people. That also makes me realize what a shame it is that they are all so fond of cribbing but no one wants give up their Sunday morning for something really constructive.  Anyway the Blogaloreans are now focussed on organizing a Free Hug Campaign on V-Day to defy … Continue reading Bangalore Bloggers Meet with RK Mishra and Ashwin Mahesh (cancelled)

Blogalorean’s Meet 12th April 08

The Blogaloreans are meeting again. This Saturday, 12th April 08. On agenda this time is something beyond blogging, an attempt to know our favourite city, Bangalore, how? See below. Venue: Bangalore Traffic Police Park on St. Marks Road. So why this venue? Simple reason – Not everybody knew about the park, as a Bangalorean we all should, and now we do. The park is described thus on the Bangalore Traffic Police’s website “This traffic park has a facility to train citizens and students in road safety and traffic rules.” So you know, may be it would be a good idea … Continue reading Blogalorean’s Meet 12th April 08

New Media + Mass Social Campaign

Every time I do they say, “there she goes, there she goes again, trying her best, to hog as much attention as she could get.” So this time I thought I’d keep a low profile. But then Arun nudged me, “Why don’t I see you around on BCB list? Why are you so silent, either you are too busy or too upset with something.” First I gave him some bull shit reason, then the honest reason, finally I was motivated enough by him to do this.   Proposing the New Media and Mass Social Campaign Collective for BCB5 What is Barcamp? BCB (Barcamp Bangalore) is … Continue reading New Media + Mass Social Campaign

How did it happen

Barcamp4 concludes and Blog’a’lorean’s have just begun. While moving base from Delhi this is one thing I thought I’d have to miss. Fame in the Blogsphere. Delhi Bloggers knew me, but here I was a stranger. Having come to Bangalore I thought of making efforts to connect to a few Bangalore based bloggers to create a DBM sort of community here. The first person i got in touch with was Gopal and second Akash. I didn’t know that’s all it would take for me to suddenly become a name in the Bangalore Blogger circle. I owe this to the two of … Continue reading How did it happen

Updates on the Blogger’s Meet

The impromptu announcement had an overwhelming response. Around 15 of the Banglaore Blogger’s met up on Saturday 7th July at CCD. As more and more enthusiast started pouring in we were compelled to shift the venue from CCD to Koshy’s Chill Out Zone. It was a cool place indeed. We barged into chill out zone spreading our wings at two love birds there. I can understand what they were feeling, but hey, the city Blogger’s were Meeting, no small deal eh. A lot of constructive discussion took place on the meet. Most important we could connect well with each other, ideas flew … Continue reading Updates on the Blogger’s Meet

BCB4 4th week of July 07

I guess I am one of the first ones to blog about the next Bar Camp in Bangalore (BCB4). It was very kind of Akash, a freind and one of the organizers of BCB4 to invite me over for their weekly meeting. The objective was for me to share my willingness to call for a blogger’s meet in Bangalore. It would be nice to have a Bangalore Blogger’s Meet (BBM07) isn’t it. I am not claiming that the idea is totally new, I am aware of a certain Yahoo 360 blogger’s meet here in Bangalore  and am also aware of a Google group called BlogBang.  I am … Continue reading BCB4 4th week of July 07
