One web day

Has internet changed your life? Did being active online made you achieve/secure/experience something which you couldn’t have accomplished offline? In case you have some strong story to tell explaining how internet made a difference in your life (or your community or someone you know closely), try sending your entry to
OnewebDay.org. They have a contest (contest details) running wherein entries are solicited from people around the world on the topic just mentioned and top 100 entries will be featured during Sep 22, 2008, when the organizers are organizing “One web day” and also in One Web Day Journal. This one web day is a recently started concept- more about it in Wikipedia

Bloggers’ meet on a house boat.
I guess it is first of its kind in the world. Bloggers’ meet on a moving houseboat. Kerala tourism is sponsoring a unique barcamp in God’s own Country. A set of 100 odd invited bloggers would spend a day in a big houseboat in the backwaters of Kerala. Kenney Jacob and other volunteers are coordinating the event. If you’re interested, register here :

The date is Aug 16th (Saturday) and location is Alleppey (Alappuzzha) Kerala. (Participation and lunch free, courtesy Kerala tourism, but no sponsors for travel and stay expenses of outstation visitors yet) Photos of the houseboat and other details here

I’m missing several meets of late. There was a meet in Bangalore this June 8th hosted by Kannadasahitya.com, but I was away held up in Mysore watching Yakshagana by Saligrama Makkala Mela in Infosys Campus. The same day evening Chennai Bloggers meet was held at a hotel in T Nagar, Chennai, but I was few hundred kms away, driving back home in a Skoda Octavia. A Wicamp was scheduled in Wipro Campus Chennai, but this was held on a Friday afternoon and I had other priorities at work. Have to see if I can make it to this Houseboat meet. Will be missing the enguru meet as well, as I’ll be somewhere in North India at that time. Manipal bloggers’ meet and a Kannada bloggers’ meet arranged by Pranati were the one I could attend during recent past.

Other updates:
Received a mail wherein someone thought I am really Chief Blogging Officer of my company and asked me for a job! Wish I was an entrepreneur and could hire that person…Had to say sorry, but forwarded to few contacts for possible considerations

Receiving several mails of late, asking me to link/visit certain blogs/sites or requesting me to blog about certain things-Gives a feeling that you’ve grown a bit popular…Will do justice to such requests to the extent I can, but some had to be rejected. Sorry folks.

Few fellow bloggers,
Raveesh and Shande celebrated their blog anniversary recently. Best wishes to them. Some of my readers- Manoj Bhat (who is also a contributor at my Adcritics Blog), JOJO, Rohit, Alok B have launched their own blog recently. Welcoming them to the world of blogging and wishing them all the best.

Also have a look at my Blogroll/Link Love section. Have added lots of links in near past. Have a missed anyone else? Bring to my notice-will try to cover in next round up. Some more people have said they will start writing their thoughts down or sending their writings to me for a review etc-yet to see them in action. 

There’s a major update to my iMint cards post-please spend a moment and read it.

That’s all folks.

I really liked the idea of Blogger's meet on a house boat. That is something unique and a great idea...Wish I could have been there for it... :(

Hope they make some arrangements like that in Bangalore too...

Joel,

Someone wrote a comment at Kenney's blog that if Karnataka tourism holds such a meet in Bangalore, it will be like "Bloggers meet in a traffic Jam"

Start from new Bangalore airport in the morning, it will be evening before you reach electronic city...will be a good day blogging inside the bus...
