A marathon meet!

It turned out to be quite a marathon meet after all.

19 20 bloggers attended and we had a nearly 100% attendance!

There were 2 of womankind and 18 of mankind. Hmmm.

Some old faces and loads of new ones.

Kiruba was our special guest. A special thanks to him for being there inspite of the aches and pains and bruised body parts (you don’t want to know!) after the marathon 🙂

Three out of them finished the whole marathon – 42 kms. Kribs, Sathish and Shyam (who are incidentally brothers).

Shubh and Bhaskar ran the 7 kms and Sam ran the half marathon.

Congratulations to all you cool people!

We effectively blocked the entrance to Barista for a while and it took us a lot of rearranging tables so we could all hear each other.

One blogger even decided not to join in and later sms’d me saying he was a little taken aback when he saw the crowd.

The meet progressed to Koshy’s where we had another round of juice, beer and tea.

There were so many folks from Chennai that we thought of calling it a Chennai blog meet in Bangalore.

One blogger suggested we do an activity based meet next time around. Any ideas are welcome.

In attendance (in alphabetical order):
Adel
Aditya
Ambarish
Anand
Arnab

Rahul
Sam
Shubh

My pictures will take a while. Meanwhile, check out Anand and Krishna’s blog for more pictures and Muthu even has a video!

Thanks to all you folks who made it, and for those who didn’t – we hope to catch you again, at another edition of the meet.

UPDATE:
The blog meet was covered by Global Voices Online.

A couple of photographs, taken with Anand’s camera by assorted bloggers.



Make way for us. Filling up a great portion of the available space at Barista’s. Coffee places are a little unsuitable for these meets now! Left to right: Shyam, Madman, someone cut off, Adita, Anand, Suman, Sathish, Krishna, Shubh, me, Prabhu, Samuel, Muthu, Kishore and Arnab.




Before getting thrown out for disturbing Barista’s peace, we shifted to Koshy’s next door for some beer and juice.
