Indian Blogs - List of Indian Blogs ?

Blogged on 11-Jul-05 12:15:47 am in DrainBrain -- Viewed by : Fans

Part of my daily dose of trivia , I searched for a comprehensive list of Indian Blogs. Not just India related, but blogs authored by Indians. I visit at least 10 blogs a day and I see a lot of new blogs from others' blogrolls. So I understand that any listing will have to be dynamic, but is anyone making an effort ?

Google returned this Blog - Indian Bloggers List in a search, but sadly it has not been updated since Nov 23rd 2004. Anita, the owner, had posted a request for assistance, but when I mailed her, failed to get a response.

I checked some of the popular Blog Directories and got these figures

Blogstreet India - 1794
Blogwise - 1062
Globe of Blogs - 461
Blog Explosion - 387

Surprisingly, Blogger.com does not have a Directory listing.

I could have searched for more, but then BSNL is charging for bandwidth from this month on.. :roll:

A parting shot - Techocrati says- "A new weblog is created every 7.4 seconds, which means there are about 12,000 new blogs a day. Bloggers — people who write weblogs — update their weblogs regularly; there are about 275,000 posts daily, or about 10,800 blog updates an hour."

The Dumb Kid

Blogged on 05-Jul-05 12:07:31 am in Announcements -- Viewed by : Fans

Mukund had sent this and somehow I liked it :DD

A young boy enters a barber shop and the barber whispers to his customer, "This is the dumbest kid in the world. Watch while I prove it to you."

The barber puts a dollar bill in one hand and two quarters in the other, then calls the boy over and asks, "Which do you want, son?"

The boy takes the quarters and leaves.

"What did I tell you?" said the barber. "That kid never learns!"

Later, when the customer leaves, he sees the same young boy coming out of the ice cream store. "Hey, son! May I ask you a question? Why did you take the quarters instead of the dollar bill?"

The boy licked his cone and replied, "Because the day I take the dollar, the game's over!"

You can contribute to the Live 8 Anti-Poverty cause by going to this page and signing your name.

Your name may be featured on one of the Big Screens and most importantly, the entire list will be handed over to the g8 leaders urging them to end poverty.

Guess Bloggers should also take a look at this Technorati Live 8 Site.

 

Live8 Rocks from today

The Live 8 anti-poverty concert is taking place in Tokyo, ahead of nine other shows around the world and as I'm writing this, the other bands in the rest of the 8 cities have also started jamming. It's happening in 9 cities across the world and about 150 bands are playing.

America Online is getting ready for its biggest Webcast ever when it streams tomorrow's Live 8 multi-city concert event. The Live 8 event, which seeks to raise awareness about and funds to combat global poverty, comes 20 years after the original Live Aid concert, which raised funds for famine victims in Africa.

AOL will stream the real-time feeds of the Live 8 concerts in Berlin, London, Paris, Philadelphia, Rome, and Toronto. Between the Webcasts, TV broadcasts on major networks, and radio play, it is estimated that the concerts will be available to nearly 5.5 billion people, or 85 percent of the world's population.

In Chennai, I'm getting the concerts Live on VH 1 on TV. :]

I'd have very much liked to watch it over the net, but BSNL have started for extra bandwidth from y'day. What a bummer!>:( So I'm shutting down the Net and heading to the TV set.

Things have been a bit troublesome for the last 5 or 6 months after some jerky moments on the Biz front. Not that I decided to quit, but some folks told me to take up a job rather than do my own show. I was a bit confused :crazy:, but Mukund send me this verse y'day and I can tell you that I'm clear again. :p
