DC Area Blogger Meet

*FLASH : UPDATE => The time and venue has been fixed . It is set to be SSV Temple, Saturday, 9th of July, 2005 at 4.30 PM. More information can be found at this post*


Dear Fellow Bloggers,
We plan to organize DC Area Blogger Meet, to bring together many bloggers from around this area.

It is not restricted to bloggers from just this locality, all interested bloggers are still most welcome, no amway/pyramid schemers please ;p

Tentatively, I would like to propose the date as Saturday, 9-JUL-05 Noon as the date & time of the meet. Based on the availability and comfort level of everyone involved we can work out the logistics. Venue is yet to be decided, but SSVT & Madras palace(dutch-lunch-buffett) makes a good combo, i would guess ?

We have a big gang in this area... Raman,Eswar,Siva,Ganesh,Srikanth,Robbie,Thennavan,Senthil and many more.

Let us use the comments area to agree broadly upon the time, date & venue. In the interest of everyone, I think we should have a list of people expected. I will setup an email id that can be mailed to for that purpose and also to confirm the head count.

Request you all to advertise the meet, it would really be nice to associate faces to words !

So long....

Arvind, hope you are coordinating with Ganesh who also emailed me on this. I was supposed to be the original organizer and proposed SSVT cafeteria but I don't mind just responding to someone's invitation if he is organizing it (and the other venue Madras Palace being just a stone's throw away from my place and possibly being near to the places of a few others) would just be fine with me.

Arvind said...

Thennavan,

Yes Ganesh & I met last weekend and think Ganesh contacted you after that.

Please do the honors of organizing....i just hosted the idea on my blog, thats all ;p

Works with SSVT cafe as well :-)

Raman said...

Arvind,
Count me in. I was discussing with Thennavan sometime back on the DC bloggers meet. Good that you've taken the initiative and posted on that.

Am fine with any of the proposed locations. Hope the location being a cafeteria or restaurant does not defeat the purpose of the meet ;-) As the saying goes, Sevikku unavillai enil siridhu vayitrukkum eeya padum :-)

Arvind said...

Cool Raman !

Eshwar said...

Good. Lets meet. Btw arvi...do we have an agenda ?

ROBBIE said...

ganesh,
unga treata? :P subbbbbber hehe, adutha thadava arvind adhukkapporam senthil then thennavan apporam u will find someone else I think and then I will finally finish my phD and then treat all of u :P

thennavan said...

Ok, looks like we will have the free form (laissez-faire) spirit in even organizing this. I am one more "dickey" in the engine which is going to be this post itself and we can decide on the details here itself and I am agreeable to whatever the majority decide. So, is the date going to be July 9th and is the venue going to be Madras Palace (they do have a group room which we can ask for in case they don't charge extra for it :-)). And again is something like noon lunch ok with everyone?

sen said...

Thennavan,
the date and venue is fine with me.but what abt srikanth?.

ROBBIE said...

I guess we all should meet at the described date and time because it has already been publicised and everyone wants to be there, we can always depending on how this one goes plan for the next and Srikanth will surely be here then.

thennavan said...

I thought Ganesh said we are going to have it one weekend hence (from the earlier proposed one) for Srikanth to arrive? Ganesh, any inputs on that?

Arvind said...

yappa, idhu enna pudhu kuzhappam.....mothama, suthama, clean'aa shall we fix a date ?

Thennavan/Ganesh pls do the honors.

Arvind said...

Oru chinna, Crazy Mohan scene patha madhiri oru pheelings ;)

thennavan said...
