Pune Bloggers Meet

Now this has been long due. It should have been up at least 8 days ago. But then, I really haven't been in a position to blog of late. So with all due apologies I would direct you all the followin links:

Preethi (PS): Of the Just a mother of two fame. She was covering the met for Times of India.

Anwin: Co-founder for Indiblogger. One the three cool dudes who came up with this entire idea.

Vinni: The man who made it all happen in Pune and put in loads of painstaking hours along with the Indiblogger team

Tarun Chandel: One the pillars in getting BarCamp and BlogCamp being organised in this part of the world. By the way, the next camp is on 29th March, 2008 at IIT Mumbai, Powai - BlogCamp Mumbai!!

Krishna Aradhi: Well this fellow can be found in his own corner or at Mutiny.in. So check out what he has to say.

Roshan: A doctor who also blogs.

Well, this was my first meet and I predictably went in with a blank slate. With a brief intro in Indiblogger and what blogger meet was all about, what started off was a "1 Minute" fame where people turned up and spoke about their blogs. Of note, IMO were a few bloggers like Karamveer who mints money through his blogs, and a few others who are doing the same in vernacular languages - in this case Marathi (and i remember someone telling me vernacular language blogsa in't of any use!! hmpf!!) With Microsoft sponsoring we had an evangelist Sandhya from Microsoft amongst us. Again an avid blogger. She introduced us to Microsoft Live Writer, which is a wonderful tool and surprisingly its free!! :)

Oh btw, check out the video below this is what kicked off the Meet. The music is from "The Kiss" from OST, Last of the Mohicans.
