Yesterday, 7 July 2007 we had the Bangalore Bloggers Meet. Probably this is the first time we were doing this kind of a meet and am fortunate to be there.
We initially met at CCD on MG Road, but due to space constraints we moved to Koshy’s, another famous and old Coffee joint on St. Marks Road. There was a good turnover and I think there were around 20 of us there.
More pictures are on my Flickr.
Also, we are trying to make Blogging a collective during the forthcoming BarCampBangalore. Sanjukta, who coordinated organising yesterday’s Bloggers meet, is also coordinating with this collective during the BarCampBangalore. If you are in Bangalore during those dates, dont wait to be there and be part of this event.
Coming to the event, it was a good start. We discussed on how we can make Blogging much more productive so that all of us benefit and also create a new dimension to aspects of Blogging.
Sridhar Rao, was sharing his ideas on how we can create a web NGO and contribute to various aspects of Society. Also, Sanjukta was speaking about how she would like to talk to the underprivileged and people who are being ignored by the society and bring their problems to light and in this direction if we can provide any kind of service, then Blogging can be a very useful.
I had to leave shortly afterwards, but I am looking forward for the next meet and see how we can help ourselves to uplift the quality of Blogging.
Here are few of the attendees (few could not make it too) and links to their blogs. Hope you enjoy reading….
To top it all, Bangalore Mirror had a small coverage for the event (Ref to Bangalore Mirror paper on 8 July 2007, Page 3)
