New Indian Express on the Impact of Internet

The Sunday edition of New Indian Express has a cover story on the impact of internet, needless to say that blogs have found their way to this article too.

Writer Sujatha says “Avoid blogs, they are endless ego trips. Be very choosy in adding to your favourites list. It becomes too big”. He is entitled to his opinion. Frankly speaking, I didn’t expect this from a tech savvy person like Sujatha. There might be too much clutter in the Blogosphere but that is not a reason to shun blogs”.

Maalan (of Sun News) says “Mamis enquire about the snowfall at Philadelphia with their son through Yahoo! chat. And non-resident Tamils write exciting reviews of Anniyan in their blogs on the day after it is released. Of course, train tickets are delivered at home”.

    I am not against IR coming out with such nice stuff,but chumma misleading people with following of ethics n stuff is bullshit!
    Its yet another commercial motive.Thats needs to be acknowledged!

  • while there are blogs and more blgos which are "endless ego trips", there are many great blogs out there - interesting and analytical - and fearles unpolitical voices - I am disappointed with Sujatha for saying such a thing - always thought of him as a man ahead of his time...

  • KAPS, Wat do u have against tamil songs with english words in them...i think it's creative and other people agree, because we are living in the 21st century, not the past so give the lyric writers a break and stick to your old school music, which i know is gr8 but it is the future so we got to move
    on....thanx for reading my thoughts!
