A quicky-quick post about the Mumbai BlogCamp. Firstly, how many of your read about it here and decided to show up? And if so, why didn’t you come talk to me??!!!
Sakshi and I pulled into IIT, Powai around 11, with a late but not dramatic entry since we walked smack-dab into the crowd dispersing for a break after the introduction. The lovely Meetu and my Twisted friend from Pune had made it on time, much to my mortification.
I saw a tag floating around and decided to write my own memoirs in 6 words:
I strove for individuality, then acceptance.
Her fingers paused on the edge of the key-stroke. The ceasing of the rapidfire tap-clackety-clack-tap of her keyboard sounded very loud and she glanced up guiltily to see who had noticed. No one had, apparantly, so she breathed in a slow rush of air, settling that odd fear to rest and got up.
Her heels made a clack-tappetty-clack sound on the wood-panelled floor. It made her grimace. Once again that feeling, first with sudden silence after sound and now with sudden sound after silence. One more deep breath and another thread of nervousness laid to rest. Nobody was staring at her.
- Not a techie but definitely a blogger? 😯
- Someone who loves talking? 😮
- Occasionally listening to other people….if they make sense? 😈
Join my club! That’s the only reason I’m going to be at IIT School of Management on Saturday, 29th March 2008. Cos’ that’s right where (and when) the Mumbai Blogcamp is happening!
For furthur details do check out the Mumbai BlogCamp page. I quote:
Blogcamp Mumbai is the second edition of BlogCampPune. Blogcamp Mumbai is a free unconference focusing exclusively on blogging, organized by bloggers for bloggers. This is going to be an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction between attendees. Any blogger who wants to contribute is welcome and invited to join.
Now that you know my plans for the next weekend, who’s going to be my date? Don’t just tell me, head over to the page and sign up! 💡
Update on this:
The missing comments section has been restored. Thanks are in order to Cynic who pointed the bug out to me and to Brad, my dear A.E. who tipped me off on how to fix it!
The template is still evolving…a work in progress we like to call it! I’ll fix the broken sidebars sometime soon. There shouldn’t be too many blunders now that I’ve received a verbal rap-on-the-knuckles for not making back-ups of code from various people. But if you see something off or looking abnormal (disregard the usual weirdness that you see on the Idea-smithy), I’d appreciate it if you’d give me a shout. My email address for those who didn’t note the ‘Drop an idea’ section below my header is ideasmithy at gmail dot com.
And while you’re poking around, I’d love to hear from you on the design, the template, the features…anything at all!
Back to normal posting…one hopes!
The Cynic brings it to my notice that my comments section isn’t working (thank you, ma’am!).
I’m afraid this will be the case over the weekend since I won’t be able to check it before Sunday. Much apologies to everyone…and please to bear with my techno-greekiness till I figure out a way to blog without blowing up something or the other on the site. In the meantime, as a poor (very poor) alternative, do try the ‘Drop an idea’ section to mail me your shouts, brickbats and errm..a few bouquets?
….and here I was wondering why no one commented on 3 new posts, a new template AND my mug-shot up on the blog for the fussst time!
Put on your thinking caps, don your listening ears and step up! The Mumbai BarCamp is around the corner! The weekend after next (that’s 29th March) at SOM, IIT – Bombay a group of people will congregate for an ‘unconference’
Now I’ve never attended a BarCamp before. But I’ve been hearing the whispers in the wind and here I quote:
Anyone can attend! Anyone can speak!
About what? Anything…err, so long as it concerns blogging, technology etc.
And if the speaker bores you, you can always move to another one…there’s plenty happening at the same time!!
Sounds like fun, wot? Meet me there!
Here are the details….
