A facelift for the pundit

Well actually, one of my favorite reads Desipundit has gone for a complete revamped look and man “what a site”. There is really no parallel for Chug’s ethnic designs. He has done brilliant gratis designs for the Indibloggies in the past and remains one of my favorite web-designers. Desipundit’s approach is very professional, the way they have amalgamated various facets of blogging together. I however feel that they should try to host the Wiki on their own server, the way Hindi blogdom did for Sarvagya. In addition, the articles, once completed, may be contributed to Wikipedia to enrich their content.

Barcamp comes to Pune

It seems Barcamp Pune will surely happen in June. I have been involved at the early stages having created the Wiki and the Yahoo group but then stealing time for the event has become increasingly difficult. The present teams of organizers seem to have zeroed in to two venues, both choices are good. The list of attendees has been swelling steadily and there is a good variety in the topics added to the wiki so far. I have decided to speak on “Indic Blogging: Opportunities and Challenges” and I hope I am able to prepare something good. If you are in Pune on June 17 do drop-in, details of Venue would be updated at the BarcampPune wiki. You may also join the BarcampPune mailing list.
