Rajan, IIIT Hyderabad alumni, ex-Sapient guy and now an entrepreneur had nice things to say about me and this blog after he went through my Barcamp posts:
I thoroughly enjoy his posts, he has that strategic way of analyzing technology which I have never come across any India based technology bloggers in my years of blog reading. [...] I try to use the strategic (based on underlying economics) approach to technology which I find is the best way to look at technology but he beats me thoroughly in it.

Rajan's been blogging for three years and I enjoy reading his blog too (he's also much more frequent than I am). Check out Rajan's blog. My favorite post on his main page - Ideas do matter on the old idea vs. execution debate and how in the venture community ideas get a raw deal. I blogged about the superiority of idea over execution myself sometime back in Idea Or Execution?

Thanks Manik! I thought you were one of the smartest geeks at the conference. Enjoyed your talk even though I could grasp only some of it. Looking forward to meeting you at the dinner.

There is so much happening in the Indian Blogosphere that every now and then a very pleasant surprise shows up. Thru Rajan's post came to Manu's blog. Nice to see someone working on Usabaility (the style and "hues" in the blog speaks for Manu's abilities!). AM fully into Software Products and worked in organizations that lays very high emphasis on Usability and Aethestics in software. (At pramati, when teh company had just 6 employees, there was one UI/Usability designer, among them! And at its peak, we had 3 designers, in a team that had about 30 developers!). Feels very nice to know of more such good designers around.
(BTW, inspiured by Delhi Barcamp, myself, Rajan and a few others have gone full steam on Hyderabad Barcamp. check out- ). We are actively seeking bloggers' to speard the word around.)

Ramesh -- good to know about Indian companies increasingly recognising the importance of user experience.

BarCampHyderabad - great going. A small suggestion - keep a single point of information. Two wikis on the same topic could be confusing for readers and also doubles up your work in keeping them updated. There's a lot happening in Hyderabad so BarCampHyderabad could be an even bigger success. All the best. (i'll blog about it soon)
