Ah, that was one satisfying meet for the indibloggers. I called for the meeting to initiate the whole new feature at indiblogger.in for calling for meetings within one’s city. And I should congratulate the indiblogger team, myself included, for making it a grand success.
The Bangalore meet started at 4:30 PM at Microssoft premises. It went on till about 8:30 PM. That was quite a long meeting I should say. The agenda included introduction of bloggers, an intro into indiblogger by Renie, a skit by the indiblogger team, a presentation of live writer by Microsoft, a presentation by leadcap on empowering India, and of course, free pizzas courtesy of Microsoft.
It was our first major initiative as part of the Chows gang. And we pulled it off. There were so many things that could have been done better with a little bit more planning, of course. But altogether, it was amazing, considering the feedback we got from the attendees. Read more at the following sites:
That’s me welcoming everyone to the Bangalore Indiblogger blogger meet.
That’s part of the bloggers at the meet intently listening to something.
That’s us doing the skit.
And that’s some of us just goofing around after the meet.
I met a lot of people whom I truly found interesting and others who I would have liked to have more conversations. Maybe, in the next meeting. Some notable people are Himanshu (who someone called the ‘walking Stephen Hawking‘), Pradeep Nair (who had to leave early due to work), Mrinal, Ravi from Metblogs, Sanjukta, Comrade Chakra who was the dude of humor, and more and more.
Looking forward to other indiblogger meets now. Not sure if I can spare time to visit meetings in other cities, but in Bangalore, yes. I will be there!!!
