Tomorrow, June 9th, is going to be about Audio Podcasting and Sunday, June 10th, is going to be on Video Podcasting.
Press Conference is arranged on June 9th at 11:00 AM. The press coverage so far has been awesome. Kartik Subramanian from Hindu had a fantastic writeup on Page 2. The rest of the publications that has covered the events are Rediff, BudinessWire, IndiaInfo, MyIris, Sify, IANS, Yahoo!, CyberMedia, NDTV Profit & The Telegraph.
The Police are creating a hassle with permission for the BeachHouse party. Apparently, there’s been some ugly events that happened last month and the police have put a strong curb on any party happening on the ECR. We are looking at ironing things out and putting them in order.
Less than half day to go for the event. The team is pumped up. Should be fun.

Original Signature Tune for PodWorks
Chinmayi has helped compose a signature tune for PodWorks. For those who don’t know, Chinmayi belongs to A.R.Rahman’s team and has sung for Guru, Sivaji and numerous tamil movies. She is also a TV host for Vijay TV and a Radio Jockey for Aaha FM.
I love the melodious tune, especially the flute rendition towards the middle. The music starts to grow on you over time, much like the Airtel tune by ARR. Listen to it..

Only 15 more days to go for the event.

Do You Know a Nice Beach House on ECR for a Party?
We are looking for a nice private beach house on ECR in Chennai, big enough to house 75 folks. This is for the PodWorks party that will take place on the night of June 9th, the first day of the podcasting event.
For those who don’t know yet, PodWorks is India’s biggest podcast event attracting the best minds on new media.
ECR (East Coast Road) has some fantastic beach houses but they are like hidden jewels, difficult to find. The best ones are never publicised and are only given out on personal references.
The Beach House must contain swimming pool, a few rooms and preferably a big lawn. Most folks will also be crashing out for the night. The party will have alcohol, music but it will be a nice decent one. Nothing wild. We will take prior Police permissions (which is required by law) and keep things in order.
Do you know of a nice place? Can you check with a friend, your friend’s friend for a lead? Even a small lead will be useful information. Any help is appreciated. Please call me at 98415 97744 or email me at Kiruba[@]Kiruba.com.
Thanks in advance.
