Bloggers Meet

How does the idea of a City Bloggers Convention sound? Poona now has a fair number of bloggers a lot of whom know each other only as names or URL's. I think it would be interesting if we organized some sort of get-together for all the bloggers in the city (or at least those who are interested).

A good deal of Poona's bloggers are engineering students and would be having their final exams in the first 2 weeks of June. Thus, I think sometime mid June would be the best time to schedule such a meet. This would also give us enough time to organize the meet and spread the word around.

Do let me know what you guys think.

It sounds like a good idea. It will be fun.. But in the corner of my mind i think maybe we shouldnt have a meet. Its best when you have this anonymity between each other. No offence but it might be very good to read some one blogs rathar than meet him/her in person!

maverick said...

quite a good idea...but i do have some reservations like varun.

For the love of God, man, will it kill you to say "Pune"? Even your profile says Poona!

Aditya Bidikar said...

arnold said...

If you want to schedule a bloggers meet (I'm with you, btw), just plan it, announce it and publicise it. Dont wait for everyone to vote

arnold said...

it'll be sometime during/after the 11th-12th june weekend. not sure of exactly when. tht's why i wanted some feedback. to figure out which day is the best exactly. i'll try to finalize the date as quickly as poss so it can be spread around. also do u hv any idea wht the agenda shld be like?

Aditya Bidikar said...

>>also do u hv any idea wht the agenda shld be like?

Beer and food sounds good enough for me.

arnold said...

aditya - lol!! throw a coupla girls and you got urself a PARTY, mate!!

i think it'll prob more like only food though.. ofcourse if u wanna supply the beer, we're all game! ;)

maverick said...

a sat/ sun evening would be perfect dude

arnold said...

tht;s wht i think... prob 11th/12th june...

Varun said...

kewl... bidis is supplyin beer :D :D

arnold said...

is he??? shld be fun mates!!

Aditya Bidikar said...

Absolutely f**king not! But I think Chetan should have no problem bringing some - he always wants to drink.

arnold said...

i dun really care who's getting the beer, so long as some one does get it in the end!! aditya, u seem to b the people's favorite for the job!

chetan said...

BD bhadave apni aukat me reh!!

arnold said...

isnt BD (bidi) also like the local brand of cigarettes available??

Aditya Bidikar said...

I'm gonna ignore this particular comments section from now, okay?

BTW, the 'local brand of cigarettes' is exactly why they call me 'Bidi'. Phukya (smoker) is another popular nickname. I don't mind, but I'd prefer people calling me Adi.

arnold said...

so u do smoke, huh???

Varun said...

Bidi answer his question... or shld i tell??? :D

arnold said...

anyone's answer will do... but i dun think he smokes.. cuz i think tht's wht he said in my "smoking" post... am i right??
