Deepak from Motvik started the session with Camera Phones and its posibilities related to todays world. Disruptive technology? New possibilites of misuse of proprietary information! Tsunami videos and London Bombing and Citizen Journalism and Sadaam Hussein Hanging and its effect. Still the commucation of images and videos are still not happening as the networks are premature to feed the bandwidth.

Post lunch on the Internet Room
Web 2.0 as blogging platform presented by Bforblogs.com looks like a polished version of Pro blogger with better aggregation to be done in it. Then there was a session on Intelligent Social Networks (Socionets) are the buzz of the future. Pls check http://www.thumbstacks.com to know more on the collaborative spirit of Socionets. There was a session spearheaded by Kiruba and Me (Syed) on the UNBOOK project. We took the initiative to create and rally for authoring to churn content and buzz on "the unconference book" We suceeded in creating visibility for the project among the BCB3 participants. There were professionals like Raj Datta (GM of Knowledge Management) from Mindtree and Payal of OSC who have expressed great interest to take up initiatives with the Knowledge Foundation on this project. This is just the fraction of the share of people who met our other friends from TKF. The day was great and look forward to a equally exciting networking dinner tonight and an interesting day ahead.
