The purpose of the blog is to engage in conversation, learn and hopefully, in the long run, be a medium of change. This is a long shot and the whole effort is stuck in my biases.
Internet has exposed me to a cross culture of influences and revealed things that I never knew existed. Given the huge amount of information online, it is imperative that some form of editing mechanism exists which could bring forth the best for consumption. However, individual differences vary in opinions and attitudes and agreeing to a broad statement of interests is a tall order indeed.
Ever since I started off this blog, it was a concious decision to keep the mandate limited to broadband/emerging technologies and the pathetic Indian telecom scene. We could do without the institutionalised stupidity that often reveals itself in Government notifications which otherwise is a clear reflection of the electorate that elected them in the first case.
With the said purpose of “delivering the humanity and mankind” of their troubled existence from the mental decadency all around, couple of us bandied and started forums called as Think Nest. We really don’t fancy choked bandwidth/ digg effect trying to access, but clearly wish to have an “engaging” content online. A simple sign up and you could naviate around to get the feel of the place.
I hope to see you all there on the alternative platform; a planned IRC channel is on the cards. The discussion can be taken on to the forums from the blog.
