Bangalore Bloggers Meet

The Bangalore Bloggers Meet happened. And it ROCKED. More than 40 bloggers from Bangalore, Mumbai and two from Germany (who are in Bangalore) as well as a couple of non-bloggers (journalists, short-film makers) gathered in Brew HaHa and had a blast.

For the first half an hour or so, everyone introduced themselves. And the sheer variety was impressive in itself. Once the intros were done, we ordered coffees from a good selection of delicious menu and got on with discussions on various topics.

The first point on the agenda was to decide the agenda for the Barcamp later this month. A lot of topics for discussion were decided upon during which your’s truly volunteered to give a talk on various blog platforms, and how to start up on blogging.

Then someone (with deep apologies because I forget the name RK) gave a talk on micro-financing blogging(something which was not of my interest) while demoed Pownce to a few people. Then people discussed starting a campaign for social awareness. Lastly, just before we broke up, I floated an idea to start a site for Bangalore Bloggers where bloggers from Bangalore would contribute articles, as well as aggregated contents from all contributors would be available for reading (a la livejournal friends page)

The meeting went about an hour or so more than scheduled but I am sure no one was complaining. After the break up, some of us went down to purple haze for beer where Sanjukta ended up getting high and Snigdha wanting to dance but for the lack of a dance floor :D

Oh and it was Sridhar’s birthday so he got “pseudo” birthday bumps ;)

    Ooooops.. My deep apologies RK. I actually missed your talk (could not hear you completely) and someone mentioned that you were talking about “Micro-financing”

    That’ll teach me not to go simply by second hand information :D

    That’s really cool. But is the monthly meet final? I think it was suggested but not finalised (though I could be wrong)

    AJ, I did not talk !! I did not even join you guys but was sitting in the other corner. I came late !!
    I *think* it was micro-blogging (twitter, jaiku) but I am not right person to even guess if someone did not talk on micro-financing !! :)

    Ok, now I am positively embarrassed. I will confirm who it was and what the topic was now..
    :(

    Btw, I was the one who volunteered to speak on micro-blogging at the barcamp. So maybe you got confused when you heard that… :-/
