Linkin Park – 2nd August

The Linkin Park is back after a week's break.

Michael Higgins has an interesting post on the popular blogger(s) in the Indian Blogosphere. Vikram goes one step further and lists down the page ranks of all the popular bloggers. Based on page ranks, Sepia Mutiny and Rajesh Jain come out on top. The number of Bloglines / Feedburner subscribers might also be another way to find out the popularity of the blogs. Anand talks about his favourite desi bloggers and tries to start the next round of memes.

Few more bloggers posted on the language debate that I talked about earlier. Charu’s post generated some nice comments, especially the ones by Badri and Partisan. Ramnath talks about the tabloid style headlines of Tamil magazines. Visithra feels that two of my wishes are achievable.

Language seems to be the topic of discussion in other blogs as well. Gowri requests Bangalore residents to start learning Kannada. During my 2 ½ years in Bangalore, I never made an attempt to pick up the language. The friendy autowallahs start speaking to you in Tamil as soon as you get out of the train. (This happens when u arrive early in the morning, when most Chennai trains arrive)

In response to my post on Banking Pins, Chanakya of Seshmics says that customers end up paying for the banks inefficiencies and technology investments.

Patiala Pataka points us to Mangal Pandey blog by Aamir Khan

Using some consulting logic, Jayesh of Booletpoint comes up with a 2 x 2 matrix with frequency of posts on one end and the length of posts / analysis on the other end. Which quadrant does your blog belong to?

Prince Roy travels to Tirupathi and gets his head tonsured. The travelogue has interesting pictures including the one in which Prince Roy is clad in a traditional dhoti.

Telegraph newspaper is giving lot of coverage to blogging and this one is on blogs by women. (via Mangs)

CNET feels that Bangalore techies are too stressed out

A Rising Asia – Lee Kuan Yew in Forbes

Rasheeda Bhagat profiles a lady who has stormed the male bastion of stock broking

In his column titled E&OE, D Murali says that banning mobile phones in schools is not the right thing to do.

Here’s an extract from the new book Mediocre But Arrogant. The author was kind enough to reply to one of my emails. BTW the book launch is happening tomorrow (3rd Aug).

Things I’ve learned from Blogging (via Chugs)

Chennai Craigslist takes shape….I don’t see too many entries though! IT professionals could form a large chunk of the potential user base of Craigslist in IT hubs like Chennai and Bangalore. The IT firms use resources like Bulletin Boards extensively and hence it might take a while before Craigslist can make an impact.

News Today hints that MK might be arrested. I'm sure SUN TV would have put 2 cameras outside MK's house to catch every bit of the action and present their side of the story. This video can probably fit into their "Indhiya Tholaikaatchigalil Mudhal Muraiyaaga" (ITMM) theme and can be aired repeatedly before the next State elections.

  • Hi Kaps,

    Very nice, as always. And I agree with Sunil's comment about linking to it on DesiPundit. Let me know if you are not comfortable linking to your own piece.
