Taking a session on ‘Kuriyedathu Thathri & Social Media ‘ @barcampkerala

Barcamp is back in Trivandrum. The 12th edition of barcampkerala will be held at technopark, Trivandrum on the 22nd of April 2012. I am a regular barcamper from barcampkerala-3 onwards. This time I decided to take one step forward by taking a session at barcampkerala.

I was searching for a suitable topic and finally decided to take something on social media in kerala. Social media is a buzzing word now a days and everyone is after social media marketing. I am trying to focus on the social effects of social media in Kerala.

RSVP for Cochin Twestival

Not sure what a Twestival is?

It is a mega tweet-up with lots of things added. In short, it is a Twitter Festival. Twitter Festivals or Twestivals happen all around the globe once a year. There are basically two types of Twestivals: Twestival Global & Twestival Local. Twestival Global is one day, one cause all around the world and Twestival Local takes place over a weekend where cities are encouraged to support a local cause. Both versions have international momentum, but the real power of Twestival is when everything comes together on one day, giving focus to an important cause, the cause being different every year.

Google mapping Party

I was fortunate to attend the google mapping party at Residency towers, Trivandrum today.


Actually this is one of the best thing i like about trivandrum. There will be atleast one great event every month. I came to know about the mapping party from my friend @AravindJose but it was very late and the registrations were closed by that time, I send a request mail to the organizers and they were kind enough to accept it 🙂

The event has already got more than enough media attention as Intelligence IG Mr.Sibi mathews IPS send a letter to the government asking not to allow mapping parties in the state.
