Pods and Blogs in Bangalore!
I'm in Bangalore, India this week getting Pods and Blogs to you from one of the biggest IT cities in the country. It's a place of contrast, ten percent of the population lives in the slums and yet India is one of the largest populations when it comes to being active online in places like Twitter, Orkut and Facebook.
There are many tech companies here either outsourcing their support or developing products for this part of the world. I'll be finding out about the online social scene, the possibilities for helping impoverished communities and how technology is changing this city.
So far I have been out in an Auto, braving the traffic with Hrish (@dhempe) and VJ (@adropofwisdom) who are connected online and working in the tech community. Here's our journey through the streets.
More to come in the following days as I navigate around Bangalore.
