Yes, have been late in posting about this event, but even then, I was there at the First OpenCoffeeClub – Bangalore meeting which was organized at Brew HaHa in Koramangala on 19 August 2007.

Ramji and Vaibhav came together to organize this event and it was a real grand success. I have few photos on my Flickr account 🙂
Now, coming to the event, I should say that it was fantastic to see more than 50 Entrepreneurship Lovers gathering there. Most of BCB4 Planners were there too 🙂 Unfortunately, I had to leave immediately after the round of introductions. Ramji, Vaibhav and Himanshu given a complete overview of the event, so please read what happened there in their blogs…next time will ensure to be there for the complete discussion.

Here is the list of enthusiasts who dropped in at the venue… Himanshu has a good list and I am just putting the list copied from his blog (I think its legal, because I am giving due credits to him…what say Himanshu?).

    Hey Hari,
    Ramji’s spelling is not right..It is Ramjee 🙂
    It is good people have noticed the list that I consolidated and it is useful for the other bloggers 🙂

    COPYING?? What is that? I appreciate all the guys from BCB’s , MoMo’s and other unconferences and they(including me) are the ones who are going to change the world…. 🙂

    I never knew “I WOULD GET SO MANY FRIENDS” since now I only have “BLOGGER FRIENDS” 🙂

    See you the next Unconference or at TiE since I finally managed to get into TiE (Cash Crunch) 🙂
