Business Line article on blogging

Business Line has an article on the role of blogs in the corporate world and in aiding disaster relief efforts. The article also talks about some of the perils of blogging.

Anurag Jain, a management student from Bangalore and avid blogger, says, "I blog on events and activities taking place in the city."

People from all walks of life have taken to blogging. With the increasing penetration of broadband globally, more people have access to and can create such logs on the Web.

Bloggers form groups based on location and interests. One such group is `BlogBang', headed by Arka Mukhopadhyay, a freelance theatre artist. He says, "The group was created as an attempt to bring city bloggers together. It is one of the few comprehensive groups of bloggers in our country." Out of the 115 people in the group, more than 50 belong to the IT industry. Some organisations such as Sun Microsystems and Yahoo! encourage their employees to blog.

The recent case of a B-school, the Indian Institute of Planning and Management, wanting to take action against the blogging community had it coming out in support of Rashmi Bansal, editor and publisher of youth magazine JAM, and Gaurav Sabnis, an ex-IBM employee. JAM published recently an article in which it claimed that the institute was advertising wrong facts. Sabnis provided a link to the article in his blog, http://gauravsabnis.blogspot.com. The IIPM reacted by sending an e-mail notice against the bloggers.
Sambhar Mafia wishes all its readers a very happy Diwali
