In Unconferences

The way to go is really into niche unconferences. A bunch of young techie entrepreneurs have planned an event where mashup enthusiasts can come together and try out new stuff using Yahoo! Pipes. I spoke with Bhasker Kode, one of the brains behind the event and he tells me that the event will be a combination of a ‘talking heads’ and ‘hack nights’.

The event is taking place this Sunday (December 23rd). Yup, too short a notice. Ideally a month’s notice would have been better for the word to spread around.

Interestingly, the event is taking place at Koyambedu, a place better known for having Asia’s biggest vegetable & fruit market than for anything technology. I’m not complaining though. It’s closer home and for the first time I don’t have to travel all the way to the IT corridor to attend a tech event.
