CSI Web 2.0 conference

I delivered a talk today on 'Enterprise application of Web 2.0' in the National level CSI Web 2.0 conference.

The conference saw participation from companies like IBM, Yahoo, Google, AOL, Oracle etc. There were 4 tracks, each with about 4 talks and the speakers were primarily from Yahoo and IBM. There was a wonderful panel discussion on 'Dark side of Web 2.0' and I should say, it was the best part of the event.

I was also part of the program committee and having done Event management while in college (as part of CSI-SJCE), I should say that it was not quite different from the way we used to do it in college, except that it was far more easier to get contacts now, because the enterprises were driving it.

Wanna reduce email spam?

I was curious about how much a 'abc-at-xyz-dot-com' way of displaying email addresses, helps in reducing spam. So I did this search: * at * dot * and the results did not surprise me. 🙂

I then searched for different ways to hide email addresses and came across this wonderful blog entry.

Our team had been to Honnemaradu this weekend.

It was the first time that I got into water and it was a wonderful feeling. We also camped on the island and learnt canoing, coracle riding, tying tents, etc.

All in all, it was a wonderful experience of a world away from the air and sound polluted city life.
