Shunya : India’s Slashdot?
They say everything started from shunya (Sanskrit for absolute nothingness). And Shunya seems to be a good beginning for Indian techies. Move away Slashdot, Shunya claims to be the Indian Slashdot but would probably try to be different (“It started when slashdot rejected a story I submitted, as the story was not US centric”, said the founder in a mailing list). “News for Indian techies; by Indian techies”, this sure is a nice and innovative idea. I just hope it survives, prospers and more importantly, keeps a distance from the Slashdot subculture.
