How We Began...

22nd November 2007
(conversations over email through googlegroups - parts have been edited :P)

Kaveri: Anyone in the collective a blogger type?
Karuna: Yeah, I've asked someone to put me in touch... We can upload stuff on their blog hopefully.
Kaveri: That's super. Let's do it.
Karuna: YEAHHHHHH also more bloggers...im trying to source their contact... on the job madam erm meim saab... not chariyo i am!
Balaji: Ashwin used to be a great blogger... dono if he still is...
Ashwin: Ah man, I don't blog anymore... that phase has been done with. Thankfully too, if you know what I mean! ;)
Krishna(in form after his comeback): Well, rather than needing to be mentioned in someone else's blog - we should have our own blog and have regular updates on happening, events and interesting anecdotes.
Kaveri: Ya - so who can do that?
Ashwin: Hey, I could set up a blog for us and run with it till the festival....(lots of in between stuff that I edited off :P)...but word can spread pretty fast on the net..if there is a collective meeting on sunday before the performance then this blog thing can be on the agenda...the more i think about it, the more i like the idea...like one blog dedicated to the festival...the url can be included on all our publicity thingies...I'm willing to make the blog, take it up and run with it!
Rakesh(suddenly suprising mail): What about making some crazy very-short video clip to put on you-tube/the blog & advertise the show.
Anushka: Yippeee good idea!
John: Wot aen idea i say...i'm loving it all over
