pune will witness one more barcamp

Its a pleasure for me to announce that we (so called organizers) of BarCamp Pune are ready to rock with BarCampPune-III.

Pune has witnessed two barcamp earlier with no marketting for sponsors and only technical talks by so called geeks.

Wiki is already up where you can register and get other details.

Hope to see you all there.


blogcamppune, Event for Bloggers

Last Saturday, 16th June 2007, Pune was rocking with Bloggers from all over India at BlogCampPune (Thanks to Traun Chandel).

Event started with an introduction session which i had never seen in any unconference before; But it was cool to get introduced with a guy who takes photograph of his neighbours and blogs them on his photo blog, meeting a big fan of Salman Khan and RAKHI SAWANT.

Then started so called technical talks (which people expect in every barcamp) where sponsors had a great time marketing their products and media people covering them. Then lunch (very good delicious lunch with ice cream:-)) was served. I had a great time after lunch where there were two sessions of group discussions. One was "Traditional media v/s. New media" and the other was on "Usage of blogs in learning". Both the discussion were very healthy and people put across their ideas, showed disagree on few of others ideas. All and all it was a great time at group discussions.

At the end of the day there was a kick end session where people expressed their views on how the whole event went. What went wrong, what was really cool and all. People also said what they expect from next BlogCamp. And ya there was also an announcement of next barcamp pune which is on 9th of July.

To sum up; It was a great day for me where i met so many new people. Got to know lot more things.

Hip hip hurray for BarCampPune. :)
