Barcamp Chennai 3rd Edition is happening on April 11, 2010

What is a BarCamp?

BarCamp is an unconference born from the desire for people to share and learn in an open environment. It is an intense event with discussions, demos and interaction from attendees.

BarCamp is an open, welcoming, once-a-year anytime-in-a-year event for geeks to camp out for a couple days with wifi and smash their brains together. It’s about love and geekery and having a focal point for great ideas, like FOOcamp but open.

The event will be free. But there's a catch! Partipants are expected to contribute back to the conference by participating actively. "Active participation" might mean giving a presentation, helping with a presentation, blogging or podcasting the event, or whatever other creative ways to contribute people can come up with.

There is no audience. Only participants! This is unlike any conference you have been to before. It's new, it's different and it's going to happen in our city. Anyone with something to contribute or with the desire to learn is welcome and invited to join. When you come, be prepared to share with barcampers. When you leave, be prepared to share it with the world.

Taxis run only by women. Great initiative.


While many of the new private taxi fleets being operated in the city do have a sprinkling of women drivers, the new all-woman taxi service kicked off on Sunday.

The Priyadarshini Taxi service has 29 women drivers behind the wheels. The pink-coloured cab fleet, will also have counters at the airport.

Stree Shakti Kendra, the organisation which started this service said the vehicles are owned by the drivers, and will help make them independent. The organisation intends to expand the fleet size to 150 over the next year. Besides catering to woman travellers, the new service also plans to tie-up with BPOs and other organisations where women work late at night. Women employees would be comfortable being driven back home --or to work--in a vehicle driven by another woman.

To see what real happiness is, go to a school on the last day of annual exams.
